Another newbie with 1st Honda!

Hi guys, im from Wigan and ive just bought a 2007 Civic Type R GT. This is my first Honda as ive always been a strict Toyota man in the past but the Civic FN2 Type R has been a dream car of mine since it came out and ive finally got one. First impressions are very well built and very similar in a lot of ways to Toyota.

Hopefully ive done the right thing and look forward to being a member of the forum!

A couple of pics of the car after its first ever wash and paint decontamination. Took me 9 hours and next up will be a machine polish which will take a week or two to do properly at my own lesuire.





Thanks for looking! John

Thanks again for the warm welcome I feel at home already! Keef I won't ever turn on Toyota because I've had about 6 and every one has been nothing short of brilliant but I can't speak for the newer models the last one I had was a 53 plate celica t sport and I must admit the type r does feel stronger but that may just be because it's newer. My original plan was to get a red celica gt but they are very hard to find and none were for sale. The type r was a bit over my budget and it's left me skint but I don't regret it one bit! Everywhere I'm going the car is turning heads and getting attention! I think my first and only mod will be wind deflectors. I like to keep my cars standard and mint condition. Maybe a slight tint on the rear quarter lights not sure yet!
