So i picked up my new CTR at 1200 today and spent most of this afternoon driving it around. So far im well impressed with it, im not really a car person, but i think the new addition has changed this. I will post pics as soon as i can. There was a funny smell in the car after i had took it for a blast. But my smile is so big i wil get over it and the smell disapeared soon after. Sorry its not a good write up but so far all i can compare the car too is a 206 xsi which wouldnt be fair

I had a really weird smell from the exhaust and the brakes every time it was driven hard for the first while, doesn't happen anymore though

Good choice of colour for the civic :)

Tell me about them, have to really slow down. Just hope im running her in properly as there is nothing in the handbook and the dealer said to just drive normally. Im used to running in new bikes as per handbook. Also should i get the oil changed before the firdt service at 125000 or is this done on the first service. On bikes its all done at 500miles
