Afternoon People,

It's a long way off the cards but I am going to be purchasing a Civic 2.2 D Type S GT in September when some savings mature. I would love a Type R but the 300 mile a week commute wouldn't be ideal haha.

I considered getting a Volvo C30 2.0d or a GT TDI Golf but the Civic wins on tax/insurance/MPG so its a no brainier for me.

I've had Japanese cars in the past and I miss them so that's another reason too.

I just wanted to say hello and do some studying in the forums. I will probably go to Japfest so possibly come say hello and check out some of your cars ;)

Celtic remap will be first then who knows after that :)

I had mine remapped as soon as i got it, done 8k since and its never slipped, bite point is still right at the bottom since owning it so guessing it had new clutch in.

Well done, do you drive carefully and feed in the power gradually?

After my remap I got approx 2k miles before the clutch first slipped, when tooling around.

Some 8k miles later and it's still fine for general driving. Albeit with a low bite point.

At the mo it even holds when abusing it, but it won't last and it'll slip under hard acceleration again soon.

I reckon some maps are better than others on clutches/drivetrains. A map with a big surge of power will inevitably put more of a strain on components.
