Unhappy excited new owner of troublesome car

Hi guys,
recently acquired my 2009 1.8 EX 5dr black hatchback a couple of weeks ago after many months of scouring the internet-am well chuffed to finally get to experience VTEC and be part of this forum!.......I could however really use some help buying a car manual and I'd prefer not to fork out the £30 my dealership is requesting...can anyone guide me?
Is there a part number on the back of the car manual that I could look out for on ebay so I could purchase the appropriate one? There are a lot on eBay but I'm not sure if they contain the info I need about the electronics, Sat NAV EX trim etc.

Also if anyone wants to comment I would really welcome any suggestions on my shopping list of things for the car...
-4 new tyres
-New brakes, calipers etc
-tinted windows
-remove minor scratches/paintwork

Welcome mate. Afraid to say that you're not experiencing VTEC in the 1.8 only a single over head cam and is tuned for economy. There is a "higher output" lobe but that's it. But 1.8 are solid. Great car!

The 1.8 is a DOHC engine it just doesn't have the extra VTEC cams that the TypeR has.

You will feel a bit of a boost at 5000 or so with more noise but not the oomph of the R.
It has 143 BHP not 200.
