Intro, Kent - 2.2 sport

Hello,

I'm 20, and from Kent. Just bought a 2.2 ctdi sport in grey - Need to wait until the end of the month to insure it though! Cannot wait!

This is my 3rd car, first being an Astra, and my current being a Landrover discovery.

Seems an absolutely lovely car. Definitely much quicker than my discovery



I have a couple of questions, though

-Am i correct in saying this is an 8th gen Civic?

-Anything I need to look out for going wrong etc?

-If I drive sensibly, what mpg should i be expecting? If i drive enthusiastically how much will it drop?

-What is the engine code for the 2.2 ctdi?

-Any suggestions on where to buy parts?

-Anyone else from around my area?

Cheers,
Foz

Hello and welcome.

Problems clutch, creaky dashboard, rust within the windscreen rubber. Not every car though their a couple of things that I can remember for now.

...2.2 cheap on tax 120 / year. Parts from Cox Motors, they are on here too, but ebay and classifieds on here often have good parts.
