Civic type s

Hi I'm new here, I have been looking about for a few weeks and thought I would say hi.im from aberdeen Scotland, I have a 2008 civic type s gt ishift in alabaster silver panoramic roof etc. whomever bought the car new specified it with full cream leather interior. Wasn't sure at first but it grew on me I really like it now. Makes it unique.

The I shift gets a lot of bad press mostly from people that don't understand it. It's never going to be as smooth as a full auto in auto mode but its a semi auto so is meant to be driven manually. It drives great in manual and the flappy panel gearbox is very quick and responsive and heaps of fun. I really love it. Wish they did the type r with it.

I get around 34 mpg in town on average which for an 1.8 auto is pretty good.

First mods planned are colour coding type s trim (my dads a spray painter so no probs there) type s rear spoiler, however been considering a type r replica one for the mean time as I can get it painted free. Caliper paint not sure what to do was thinking black. Heko's, and sports grille, carbon fibre wrap of dash panels. Type s decals and badge for grille. Guess that will do for now. Will get pics soon as the car needs a good wash after winter. Just picked it up in nov.

Anyway from what I've seen the cars here look great and a great place for advice.

Thanks to all and happy new year
