Hello From Stirling

Hello all.

I'm Rob and I'm a Scot from just outside Stirling.

I've just purchased a Milano red Honda Civic Type R GT on a '59 plate

It's a full dealership service history and done 20000 miles and looks great. I know some of the cars history as my step laddie knows the last owner so that's a bit of good news.....

I've had my fair share of smaller hot hatches up until now (Pug 106, Fiesta ST, Colt Ralliart etc etc) but the Civic is the first larger car I've owned in a similar type

First impressions are.....great....I love the iVetec system and the futuristic look of the dashboard. The seats are superb and the handling and stability of the car are good to say the least

I only picked it up last Saturday and, due to inclement weather (it's snowing) I've not been able to play properly yet

Looking forward to becoming an active member of the forums

Thanks to rowbo for pointing me in the direction of these forums.....

That's ok...Christmas is coming and I'm sure my wife will buy me some bolt-ons for christmas

And the good news for me is the step laddie is a mechanic for BMW so getting bits "fitted" is a matter of getting him out of his bed
