New to the honda family

Hey guys, new owner of a civic type S - well almost a week ago now.
Couldn't go for the R as I needed 3 seats in the rear for the occasional 5 person trip. I wish they did the R as a 5 seat and I see no reason why?

Anyhow I went for a 3 door S in orange. Already learned a ton of things here so have become a supporter - its paid for itself!
Here is a pic of the car, first car in almost 8 years that isn't a people carrier
A relationship breakdown means I no longer need 7 seats so her I am!

No real gripes so far other than the ride is extremely firm and the stereo is in desperate need of an upgrade! Its a far cry away from the smax it replaces on that front.
Fuel consumption isn't too far off either, 46mpg from a 2 litre diesel vs 43mpg I'm getting in this 1.8 petrol, not a bad trade off!

Nope..... bog standard 1.8 type s
I have no real desire for mods, just a stereo upgrade and maybe a grill.
