I've noticed that my 1.8 2011 car does this too. Thing is, every car I've ever had has done this, so I've always put it down to me doing something wrong. I'm pretty sure the Civic didn't do this...

ES is one below EX. I believe SE is the lowest spec. My ES has pretty much everything except navigation and leather interior, which suits me just fine.

Do you know if the grille from a standard front splitter would fit the Type-R splitter?

I'll have a look. I can't do anything on the trading section at the moment anyway. I think it's because my post count it too low. Missed out on a complete double DIN set because of that :(

I imagine a certain French car manufacturer would have a fair few owners who think that their car is haunted too.

I have 17s on mine and I have no complaints about the ride. That said, I prefer a reassuringly firm ride as opposed to a floaty boaty ride. It doesn't feel crashy at all.

With bigger wheels...

I was under the impression that the problem was fixed in 2011 models. Mine is a 61 plate and I don't see any corrosion, but I have a glass roof so maybe it's not as obvious?

I wonder if this is to do with the feature that increases volume level with speed. Does the adaptor work without it connected?

Thanks both. I looked at the car yesterday, and aside from some pretty minor blemishes on the paintwork, the car looked good and drove perfectly. Bought it there and then.

Really happy with it...

5 Speed over 6 Speed?

Hi,

I've got my sights on a low mileage 2011 Civic. Looks to be fully loaded and in excellent condition.

I've noticed however, that it has a 5-speed manual (it's a 1.8). I've always driven...
