thx minas,
yeahh this 1.4 is really cool to run,
if you need a smooth driving, just stay under 4000/rpm and it stay around 5L/100, then immediatly after 4000/rpm this engine is not the same, devil inside ! :D
i like it, that's true a 1.8 is really more strong, i have tested it, but this 1.4 allows you to get more savings ^^

anyway more testing shots :

Have you also moved from Ille-et-Vilaine to Lot, (a long way!) or must you get a new registration for the new car?

Pas du tout, c'est très bon, presque sans erreur, l'anglais!

I had forgotten that the new French plates only give your département if you want to have the number on there, sorry.
But that was quite a trek for the new car!

Welcome, I forgot to say!!

Thx you jimm, much appreciated :)
yeah it was a long trip to get it but this kind of civic (type s gt ) is quite rare in France,
specially with this really nice "state" ( is it right ? ), near of new, 10000 kms (dunno how many miles)
it have one year garanty more from Honda, & it is absolutely clean.
I felt a real difference with the 1.4, this 1.8 is a beast :) and i like so much the 3 doors design, bumpers are much better i think, well, i can say today i'm the happyest guy in the world :)

Re-salut!
Your English is really good, spoken English rather than "formal." Do you use English a lot, maybe at work?

No, I don't VTEC - the 2.2 is the best engine I've ever had.
I drove last week Wednesday from Marsannay-la-Côte (07:30 France time) back home to Frome (22:15 GB time) So a long haul, but the driving in France is a pleasure on the payage autoroutes. Round Lille is a swine though, fast trucks everywhere going to Dunkerque & Belgium. M25 not too bad, but knackered on arrival. 4.6Li/100Km average, magic.

We didn't see many Civics in France, nor Germany over 12 days, I guess at 20, but those we did see looked all well cared for.

Your new license plates have exactly the same format as the new Italian ones, which is a bit odd. (The font is slightly different though.)

You should get a sticker from Pottsy if you haven't ordered one, then you can be "spotted!"
