Greetings!

Hello everyone,

I'm a Honda newb looking at purchasing a 2006-2008 Honda Civic EX within the new few weeks . I'm hoping you can all assist me in finding my way around these parts and guiding me in the right direction of what to buy privately or via trade .

I currently own a MK1 Mazda MX-5 Berkeley Edition, something quite different to a Civic. I love my MX-5, but for many reasons I'm ready to move on. So bring on my first Honda!

Will

Hi and welcome

Check out as many cars as you can trade is best but pay slighty higher if buying private check the history of the car

Thanks for the warm welcomes .

I understand I'd be looking at a pre-facelift model, The only thing I'd miss from a facelift model is the USB/iPod integration. Looking on here solutions can easily be retrofitted via CD Changer.

Is there a guide on here regarding the servicing intervals? I've been offered the following for £8,995 at a dealership:

Honda Civic EX 1.8 i-VTEC petrol
EX spec inc Leather (Sat Nav, parking sensors, bluetooth, cruise, climate)
60k on the clock
Galaxy grey

Personally seems a wee bit overpriced to me. I understand I pay a slight premium due to buying from a dealership but seems a bit much
Will

Hi Will & welcome to the forum.

Not sure on the service intervals but for that money I would want a lower mileage example. Good luck in your search.

What kind of price do you think I should be getting the dealer to? I'd not pay a penny over 8k but I'd begrudge paying that still.
