  1. 2011 Type S 1.4 - Are mods worthwhile?

    General Discussion (8G)
    Hi All, First time Honda owner here - recently picked up a very low mileage 2011 Type S 1.4 Civic with a Type R body kit (L13A7 Engine AFAIK?), as a weekend run around/errand running car. I didn't expect anything flashy out of it, but I've started to enjoy the handling on bendy roads a lot more...
  2. Honda 1.4 mk8 oil dilution?

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Okay so I have had a full service in December and they refilled with 3.6L of engine oil. I had checked immediately and the oil on the dipstick was just over half way and in-between the two circles. I drove a few hundred and checked again and it was at the same point. Now I've driven my car a...

    Previous Civics
    Hi All, I'm seeking a replacement electric door mirror (driver's door) with silver surround for a 2001 Honda 1.4 Civic SE. The existing item was damaged beyond repair in a collision whilst the car was parked; the driver responsible drove off without contacting me. Any suggestions or suitable...
  5. Clutch 1.4 2011 Type S clutch fluid reservoir missing!?

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Sort of daft question so apologies in advance! For a few months now I've noticed that my clutch has become "sqeaky" after say 10-15 mins of driving. Checked online and said that common fault may be due to the clutch fluid to be changed. Had my service done at Honda Ewell a few months back and...

  7. Technical 11 Civic Type S 1.4

    Ipods, MP3 Players and ICE (8G)
    Hi All, I hoping to buy a 11 Civic Type S 1.4, but was very disappointed to find that it doesn't come with a USB port and wasn't even available as an optional extra! Does anyone know if the stereo that comes with the Type S GT is the same as the one fitted to the 1.4, and if so is there an...

    Hi, Just thought i'd show you guys my 1.4 i-VTEC. I've owned the car around 3 months and love it ! Really nippy car for a 20 year old :) You can probably see the obvious mods i have done. Others are: - Superchip from 100BHP to 125BHP (feels much more!) - Full Milltek exhaust system - HKS...

    Purchased this 1.4 dsi from a Honda dealer here in Ireland last year. It was pure basic spec and looked rather miserable.

    Picked up my shiny new 1.4 civic today. Just had a wee drive about and it's an absolute pleasure to drive and so much more comfortable than my previous car. Just trying to figure out how to keep the paintwork nice, shiny and protected over the winter, any tips?

  15. Used Buying a 06 1.4 Civic

    Buying, Dealers and Servicing
    Hey guys, I just recently regged here, as I am thinking about buying a Honda Civic. The car is from 06, 1.4 i-DSI Sport, and has a really low mileage (only done 18k miles). I was more in a mood for a diesel, but this one also has a good economy with it and the insurance costs are a lot smaller...
  16. Performance 1.4 i-vtec responsiveness

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hello I'm contemplating buying an 1.4 i-vtec civic. Test drove one the other day. Although I love the exterior and the interior the performance of the engine is a worry. Granted it was a 0km car and it should do a lot better when run in, but I still wonder how it would behave full of passengers...

  19. Performance 1.4 i-DSi or 1.8 i-VTEC? Which one?

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hello, my friends I'm about to buy a Honda Civic and I can't decide between the 1.4 i-DSi Sport and the 1.8 i-VTEC Sport. I'm not crazy about speed, but I want a decent engine and I read a few posts from users that said the 1.4 is very underpowered. On the other hand, what concerns me about...

    Hey all, Today we're going to order our new car ... a Honda Civic 1.4 DSI sport. It's a wonderful car. After driving a Volvo 460 1.9TDI for about 13 years, we thought it was time for a change. :) One little question remains, when our Volvo's oil needed replacement, we did it ourselves...
