    I've read a load of posts about replacing Type S and FN1 springs with Type R springs from the FN2. I've seen it can get you 10-15mm of lowering but I haven't really seen much about how the ride quality is affected. I know it should stiffen everything up but does anyone have any experience...

    I bought a civic 1.8 2008 ex about 6 months ago. It was a cat D that had a minor bump at the rear. The repair job is not great so I am looking at replacement rear bumper and tailgate. My question is will the 3 door type r or type s parts fit my 5 door ?

    I drive an 09 1.8, ES. I was smelling what I thought was petrol whenever I was stopping with the engine running for quite a while. Honda checked the fuel system twice and could not find anything, when the car was under warranty. Things got worse a few weeks after the car ran out of warranty...

    I have recently bought a 1.8 Civic EX 2006 and thought i'd write a review comparing it with my Ford Focus 2.0 2006 as they are similar family hatchbacks. The looks of the Civic is what I initially fell in love with. It is unique, like no other and looks so futuristic (like a UFO it is commonly...

    Hi. I've followed the forum for a long time and this is my first proper post. I've been saving for an 8th gen Civic ever since I started driving about a year and a half ago. Over here in Ireland 8th gen Civics haven't been very popular and its pretty hard to find a good used one with the right...

    Hi Civinfo Members, I've been a fan of this site for the past year or so, despite not actually owning a Civic. However that has recently changed and I purchased my 2006 1.8 Civic 5 Door. This is actually my first car and the car that I'm also learning to drive in. Yet despite my young age, I'm...

    Hi there. Sorry if I am posting in the wrong section, I am new here, please don't eat me. I was just wondering what are the differences between these versions. I am pretty sure it's about interior equipment and extras, but have no idea what so ever what those differences are actually are. I am...

    Hi all, I'm an EP3 owner, and have just bought a 1.8 ES for my wife. Took it on my first good run (on my own ;)) last night and could not notice VTEC engage. In my EP3, it's very noticable, the car screams into life. My question is, is it less noticable in the 1.8 new Eigth gen variants...

    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...
