Cool New Civic Type S GT

Have just taken delivery of my new Civic Type S GT. It is Black with a bronze tinge (Not sure of the colour name) and has 18" Blade alloys which look stunning. I have also added the rear parking sensors which complete's my car. My previous car was an 5 door ES I-Shift 1.8i which I had untolled problems with for 9 months.
Thanks to Crown Motors of Bushey Heath and Honda UK who put together a good deal for me. I have only had the car 9 days and I am absolutly thrilled with how the car handles both on acceleration and road handling, chalk and cheese compared with the i-shift. I have installed a Snooper speed camera detector and laser gun detector in case of getting from A - B a bit quicker (Ha Ha). This car is the best I have ever owned and driven. All that is missing is my Civinfo stickers which I will be ordering today.

Dobbie,

Do we assume it's a 2.2 SGT?

Then you'll find the cruise control very useful on the motorway, or you end up doing 90 without realising it!

I'll second that - it's scary how quickly you get over the speed limit before you realise it!

Nice choice Dobbie - I love the bronze!

I agree, (although it's not as if the big while numerals are inconspicious!)

My previous 520D with the infamous I-Drive had speed alarms that you could set, it's a pity Honda haven't included such alarms on the Civic.

Hi HumberMart - check your manual. There are 2 speed alarms you can set. I have one set at 80 which acts as a good warning

I really must have a look at my manual, it's amazing the things you can learn from it.

Just to save me going outside in the cold to get it, are there speed alarms on the CTR too?

I would expect they are on the CTR too. Once set, they give a little bleep and show the speed set as you reach it. I have one set for 30mph and another for 75mph.

Cheers I'll have a look tomorrow. It seems like a very good idea, as 70mph does seem to approach very quickly.

set mine for 35 and 75, with 75 being a good point to drop from 6th to 4th

Other road users’ see a nicely styled Jap mobile and think its a slow family hatch until they see you leave them for dust when the VTEC does its stuff. All legally of course officer!!

I'm really happy with my Civic (1.8 iVtec), its really surprised me as being punchy enough to have some fun in, but not costing the earth to run it. Considering i've owned an impreza, nissan 200sx and a couple of clios (172/182) i am happy with it!

Oh, and you can't beat a bit of bronze in the sun!!

DC SGT, you've really managed to capture the full effect of the bronze paint in your picture. It does look stunning.
