    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...

    So I recently upgraded from my ancient Ford Fiesta to 2011 Honda Civic Type S 1.4. I wanted an upgrade, something with more kick but still economical. Unfortunately I'm not a petrol head or mechanic, I wish I was. I purchased it from an independent dealer, someone who I half know. Very good...

    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...

    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?
