Hi all,

Joined the forum as im looking at buying a 2.2 i CTDI EX and trying to learn as much about them before I make my purchase. Got to sell my Audi S3 first. Test drove one today and liked the way they drive, nice weighted steering unlike some other brands, loved the dash, and the rear folding seat mech, very clever. Poor rear visibilty is what lead me to this site and its how to as i want parking sensor or camera and wanted to know if they can be retrofit. Glad to see this site has a good how to section.

Any tips or pointers for a first time honda buyer is appricated.

Hi and Welcome to Civinfo. I bought my diesel EX back in february after nearly 3 months of searching. Take your time and make sure you get the car you want.

You need to be aware that if you are buying an EX for all the goodies that the spec changed after the facelift. prior to the faceligt the EX had all the goodies including Sat Nav, the facelift saw the introduction of the EX GT, this was essentialy kitted out as the pre facelift EX, with the introduction of the EX GT the EX was downrated regarding the extras fitted.

Regarding the reversing cameras, if your car has the Honda sat nav built in then you can purchase a camera on this site from Mrbozo
http://www.civinfo.com/forum/civinfo...e-cameras.html and a connecting cable from Bog http://www.civinfo.com/forum/civinfo...amera-etc.html

Have a look in the Wiki Main Page - Civinfo Wiki and you will find lots of info.
