I'm guessing cheaper insurance, cheaper road tax, cheaper running costs?

A sleepless night for you tonight I bet!

All of the above plus it's what I could afford price wise,also just got without a 8th gen 1.4 which I found was big enough engine for me.It also goes up in price 1st of April.

Bigger alloys means more money so I am happy with what I've got. If I had the money it would'nt be just bigger alloys it would top of range 2.2 with all the goodies, but unless I win the lottery it is just a dream.

Looks good, I am getting my 1.4SE on Friday, in white, I had the 1.4 type S, more than capable even when I took it on the motorway. I live on the Isle of Wight 1.4 is more than enough because you cant go that fast anyway,scenery is worth looking at though......Will post pics when I get it..........

Well I am over fifty,but this has been my 5th Honda civic since 1997 and I buy not because of my age but the fact that the reliabilty has been good and the aftersales service has been good.It's nothing to do with my age but it is because I like honda's.
