Nice looking car... You mention the auto lights, some have said that when on auto and lights off, the DLR lights also go off, is this correct for you?

i priced the 17 inch radiums and they were going to cost me €2200 extra!! and the 18inch apparently dont fit the 1.8 es, they only fit cars that come with 17inch wheels as standard.

Your dealer is talking crap

In any case don't buy from them

New (8th. gen) 17" Honda wheels can be found for £400 / £500 a set

Ditto 1st. class tyres

And you'll have a set of 16" to sell !!!

I reckon that's because 18" wheels are only an option on the EX-GT, which comes with 17" as standard.
