:D Having had a number of cars in my soon to be 5 years of driving including a 1990 mini, 1871 beetle, mk2,mk3 and mk4 golfs then a string of diesels a mk1.5 115, a mk2 focus then my most recent Fiesta zetec-s TDCI. All were reliable cars pretty fun daily the 2nd focus was a pile of crap but the first one was nippy and handled great plus the fiesta was lowered with lots of mod-cons to keep me entertained on the daily commute ;)

The time came I felt like another upgrade in my ever increasing car history and after looking at 140 GT TDI MK5 Golfs I gave up trying to find a decent one in my budget and decided to pick up a civic. Took a couple but found a lovely Vivid blue ES 1 previous owner full dealer history but it has a scuff down the passanger side which is a real shame as everything else is fine! Either way I put my deposit down on the 3rd April and collected on the 5th, love the torque compared to my previous dervs!

Anyway Ill be updating soon I have a few plans nothing major at the moment but here you go so far:

Couple more photos including few on the to do list. Ordered the folding mirror module from MrBozo and a USB ciggy charger as I don't smoke and they look tidy!

Few things I need to sort out

  • Some faded driver side door trim around the window buttons.
  • Gearknob is pretty worn might get something abit nicer then the standard to replace it
  • The previous owner left the car abit messy on the interior, as you can see in the images below the centre console storage area is filthy! Scared to go near it in-case it moves or talks to me
  • Seats dont look too bad tbh and the image is poor as I just got out the car but plan to give them a good scrub anyway
  • New carpets, I threw out the ones in the front straight away they were buggered up and ripped, some nice new genuine Honda ones I think
  • Find a new false floor for the boot as I currently have a hole
  • Order sport or type-s mesh style grill
  • Move the parrot to a more discreet location

Some nice beading tho!

Removed the hook part of the tow bar off for now, need to look into the replacement bar before removing the full thing. Good interior clean looking much better and sorted out replacement for the missing false floor boot lid. Not all good news as the CD player seems to of packed in only days after getting the car! I don't really want to put an aftermarket headunit in as they look a little out of place on the civics dash I think :(
