Nice wheel man.. Not to sure on this one , on a black CTR yes .. but silver cant see it working to well ....ON A STEEL HORSE I RIDE

I ordered a black on at first, but it looks like it's stolen! So I have to settle with silver. It just a car for our showroom anyway, so it'll have to be that way...

It's for our showroom only, car won't be driven at all. We only borrow the wheels from our tyre supplier.

When you say it will drive like a ship, I assume that means poor handling? I'm from Norway, so english isn't my best side.... :oops:

Would look better on a black CTR i think. Black stolen as by far the best colour [smilie=cheeky-grin:[smilie=cheeky-grin:

He means a skip (not a ship) which is a very large container for putting rubbish in!! :p

What a terrible waste of a CTR to be put in a showroom and not driven :(

I'm a sales manager at a Honda dealer, so I sell them for a living. So of course we need the "R" in our showroom! :cool:

What about taking customers for a test drive in it? Is that allowed? :cool:

Or even better just borrowing it for yourself :D. Thats what they seem to do at my dealers ;)

Would love to! But tjis car is just borrowed from Honda Norway, if we use it we have to buy it. It's quite an expensive car in Norway, approximately £43k. By the way, what's the price in uk?

Oh thats such a shame. Such a superb drivers car needs to be driven :(

Thats seriously expensive!!!. Mine which is the GT version with HFT and sat nav came to about £21000 on the road. And i thought we paid a lot of money for things here in the UK.

What if one of your customers wants to buy a Type R. How do they get a test drive?

Oh right. Must be very frustrating though ;)

As a honda sales manager have you got to drive one yet? I presume it helps to sell one if you can describe how fantastic it is to drive. If not give your customers my phone number. I love it so much i think i could sell it to any one LOL!

Anyway - back to the alloys........ ;)

I just startet the job this january, so as far as Honda goes I got a lot to learn! I'm coming from the job as a used car manager of a Audi/VW dealer, and so far every day has been a pleasure. Besides Honda we also sell Skoda. Check out out site at Hamjern Bil a.s. - Gjøvik. Honda - Škoda - Oppland - only in norwegian sadly! [smilie=cheeky-grin:

Petrol is about £1.19/l. Annual road tax is £263, and we have quite a few toll roads and toll areas (several cities). In addition there is a tax for changes in ownership on used cars. On a 1till 2 years old Civic this tax is about £1600 - quite an expensive country for us car fanatics to live in!!! :(
