New CTS owner!

Signed the paperwork last night and pick it up on Thursday.

Give you a quick back ground of my car history:

1st car: Citreon Saxo 1.0i
2nd car: Suzuki Ignis Sport VVT
3rd car: VW Polo S70 (60 plate)

So as you can see the Civic is a BIG step in my car purchases!

I've always loved the Type R and had my eye on a few but when I came across this Type S I instantly feLl in love. I took it out for a spin and paid the contract 20mins later!

It's a silver 2.2 C-DTI 57 plate GT version. It's in brand new condition with only 2 previous owners and 40k on the clock.




Plans:

Change grill
Colour code trim
Possibly lower
Possibly spray wheels black

Would appreciate any idea on subtle mods.

Just noticed a spelling mistake...*feel* in fact should be "fell".

Not a great first impression eh!

The grill is pretty easy to instal, and should take no time at all. See link below. Also check out the How to index in the Wiki section. Very helpful.
