New to the game!!

Hi all,

Recently purchased myself a rather lovely Civic Type R GT and after looking around the web, civinfo appears to be the best forum around for tips and advice

So......as a complete novice into the world of driving such a great performance hot hatch, any top tips to keep it running sweet? I am no mechanic so just looking for tips for general maintainace and things to look out for to make sure I keep her running the best she can.

Any advice greatlfully recieved

Hello and enjoy....

Usual stuff for a "performance car" really - warm it up a bit before you give it full bore grief, check oil regularly (use fully synthetic oil as well ), keep to the service schedule and you should have years of fun.

Cheap and cheerful mods would be a KN panel filter and some better pads.

After that you can spends s if you're not careful.

Happy vtec ing.....
