Newbie

I will be 17 in 6 months and I plan to purchase a Civic 1.8 Type S GT for my first car.

Is this a good first car? Reasons why it is/isn't please

I wish that could have been my first car!

Have you had the shock of an insurance quote for that car yet?

Insurance on a 1.8 will be pretty high, I was 17 when I bought my 1.4 type-s last year and I'm currently paying 2300
