From Prelude to Civic.

hi guys!

just purchased an 07 plate Civic type S GT i-cdti!!!!!! ive owned a Honda prelude 2.2 for a year and after having a civic type s as a courtesy car i kenw it was the car for me! i was gonna have 2 cars and just use my prelude at the weekends ect but i want a house so need some cash soon so gonna just have the civic.


So...... if anyone knows of anyone looking to buy a fast sporty well looked after car my prelude is still for sale! i was gonna keep it but i need a deposit for a house soon so it has to go
here is the link to the auto trader ad if anyones intersted:-

Autotrader - HONDA PRELUDE 2.2 VTi Motegi 2dr Coupe=

its the 2.2 motegi edition so is the fastest and best looking prelude Honda sold in the uk!


looking forwards to getting my civic! but gonna miss that speed and sound of the vtec! but you gotta love that torque of the diesel turbo!!!!!!

My dad had one of those about 10 years ago,
I made up every excuse i could think of to drive it,
For speed handling and fun very few cars would come close to the Prelude (except my Type R)

I had two new 2.2 VTi's Motegi's in 98 & 99, the latter must have been one of the last ones made.
Went like the dogs n-ts, but looked a bit bland.

Yeh I liked service there. Guy was a bit shocked when I wanted to drive away in the car on the same day I bought it! lol
I haven't had the chance to do some proper pics of mine yet! I did try but there was too much sun and they came out too bright.

Ritchie was yours an ex-demo as I see you have 5,000 miles on there already?

If so that must have been the demo after mine...!

i put the deposit down on the same day i saw mine! the sales man seemed pleased indeed!
i picked it up today! been driving around and just sitting in it for hours!

i think it was an ex demo but they said they bought it in from a honda auction as it wasnt registered at trident honda, somewhere else, i cant remember?? i couldnt believe how much cheaper mine was compared to a brand new one! and its only 6 months old!


P.S.
We definatly got the best colour!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeh by far! I have had 4 cars now - ALL silver! Had a Saxo, Pug 206 Quicksilver, Civic Sport 1.6 (Type-R replica) and now this.

Was very pleased with mine - got the dealer down to £14,400 with 3,000 miles on the clock. Want to get the colour coding done - you seen this one?

ah, this is my first silver car! ive usually got a soft spot for metallic blue but just love the civic in silver!

im gonna leave mine with the black trim, i prefer its looks. love the silver and black contrast! sorta got that retro XR2/GTI sorta thing.
wanna get the windows tinted, think it would look better with the dark windows and black trim.

i was really looking to changing my interior lights too, quite a cheap mod that is easy to change if i dont like it.
