Charley's new civic at last

Finally collected my Civic 2.2 SE. Did all the paperwork and went through the controls. BUT... when i asked about the new filler cap spring the salesman said I didn't need it. I begged to differ and insisted I wanted it. So it was fitted. Went to drive away and realised that the fixing for the Drivers side car mat was not there. So back I went again. Very embrassed salesman!. He said he would fix it straight away. By the way the salesman suggested the every Civic engine is runs for 400 miles before delivery, thats something I didn't know. Anyway went for a blast down my favourite country lane in Harefield. Wonderfull. The handling is brilliant, almost as good as my Lanicia Beta. Just have to run her in now according to the motortune method.

Yes the lanes are brilliant, just right for testing. Lexie, take the list. There nothing untoward on my car. Everything was spot on. Even the shut lines. Just be aware regarding the filler cap. Not every dealer knows about it!

Hi Lexie

Do you ever visit Avonmouth or Southbourne beaches. I often go there in the summer with the kids. Might see your Red Sport. (My inlaws live in Dibden Purlieu, New Forest).

Looking at thise pics I'm beginning to wonder whether my choice of Galaxy was right.

I was offered Galaxy or Milano (find out tomorrow).

What's that "Gea4" unit ?

Hi Kremmen

The Gear4 unit is I-pod FM transmitter. It had a good review in Autocar gadgets page. Great sound from I-pod with no interference.

Must admit your car does look great, so shiney (as was mine when I collected it). But not my colour.

Gear4 thing looks interesting - better than an itrip by what you say. Is it expensive?
