  2. Bargain long term runner?

    Introduce yourself
    Hi all, So a few months ago I bought myself an old civic with 161,000 miles on the clock for a bargain price from the auctions. Of course it was too good to be true, clutch knackered, no air con, 3 new tyres needed and the sat nav dvd unit useless. Spent almost a grand on getting all the...

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hi! I have a 2008 Civic Sport and I absolutely love it. However, I feel that this car is maybe not the right one for what I use it for. The problem is that I tend to drive a lot form Hungary to Germany, and that involves driving at 4000 rpm or more for hours and hours (3 or more). My...

    Hi guys, With respect to mileage, does CTR FN2 do better mileage than the EP3 or vice versa? Any personal experiences with both maybe? Cheers. Jon

  11. Questions Mileage on a diesel

    Buying, Dealers and Servicing
    I'm looking to get a 2nd hand civic deisel, probably around 06/56 plate, with a budget of about 9k. What mileage would you all consider acceptable? I'm unsure on how much is too much for a deisel of that age and what mileage they are expected to run well until.
