Hello, hadn't really posted yet so i thought id post a pic of my Civic while I'm at it..

Im only 19 so i have done any major mods to it as i struggle insurance wise anyway (tips on cheaper insurance for my age always welcome XD).

Thinking of painting callipers but I have no clue what colour is good with the orange paintwork... anyone else got an orange one knows whats good to do ?

Welcome :)

Kids these days with nice cars eh? I had this as my first car when I was 19.
I did put a bigger Weber Carb on it though which was... utterly pointless lol

Nice car, and yeah orange calipers :)

Is that a 1.8? If so how are you insured on that at 19? My 1.4 is £1500 at nearly 20, 2years NCB
Take into consideration the value of cars and the area you're in.

I'm paying nearly 2.5k for my 1.8... however renewal next week. I've got a quote for £800, so that'll be nice!

Near Priorslee mate, went and got this one from bristol pretty cheap. It's a lovely car and I love the look of it, but pretty worried with the clutch problems I've been hearing about as its now out of three year warranty...

Is it as bad as it seems ?

Mine is out of warranty and does i would say at least 300 miles a week and i have yet to have any clutch problems if its going to go it will no point in worrying about it only advantage of our engine is the Lack of torque being put through the clutch unlike the diesel.

How many miles yours done? Mine has just turned 69k only had it 16 months and done over 24k :( grr

Mine is the 2.2 diesel, Ohh dear XD. Its done about 50 i do very limited milage a trip to manchester or nottingham a month and other than that just around town.

seems to run well, it slipped maybe one time but I think that was me trying to bang it off the line and not quite finding a gear (a).

Fingers crossed haha.

Lovely looking orange tangerine you got there, would love to have that colour but don't think it comes in the 5dr only on the type S, I believe.

Hint, You need to colour-code the rest of the gp kit and get a type R spoiler on the rear and it will look awesome!!

Yeah I think orange calipers will look fine! ;)
