Just collected our first Honda, a 57 plate 2.2 ES.

First impressions are good. Quiet, although 70mph feels like 50mph and the acceleration is a bit deceiving, the numbers go up quickly but the car doesn't feel like it is in a hurry.

Have had a look through the Forum and I hope we will be as pleased with our car as most of you are.:)

What colour is it?

Welcome to the forums as well!
It's the fastest colour! (alabaster silver)

The wife has just come back after driving it for the first time, she thinks it might need a few more beans! :D We had a GT TDI Golf before.

No no no no, the fastest colour is NHB lol!

I'd expect a Golf GT TDI to be more gutsy than a 2.2 Civic, but can it fly?!

The power delivery in the Civic is smoother, the Golf had nothing then everything so gave the impression of more power. It's what you get use too, we have had 2 Tdi Golfs over the last 7 years.

What did you have before?

I hope she doesn't read this then. ;) Nice colour though, so won't want to scrape it!
