Got the car on saturday morning, went through all the handover stuff that we go through with dealers.

The car is pretty much everything you read and see on here,

looks great - as good as the pictures you see and the interiors is laid out just as well as has been said! functions are great, HFT is good fun, although i can see where the complaints stem from! That being said, i still enjoyed using it (and showing off just a tiny bit ;)). The sat nav is fine from what i've seen so far, i've been using a tomtom on my xda and i'm only comparing it to that. Everyone that jumps in so far has mention about it being futureistic/spaceship-like/cockpit-like etc.....

Drives well - Albeit the suspension really is quite hard but i knew of that before buying the car, the harder suspension does help in the handling of the car and it grips very well to the road! could be added help from the alloys (which also adds to the bumpiness of the ride!)

one thing i find a bit strange, is when driving slowly i.e parking up and braking etc, i can hear what sounds like liquidswishing around from the back of the car. After filling up (and it is quite a noisy event!), i suspect that its the diesel flying around the tank. Does anyone else notice this?


but as an ultimatum the car's short review .....I LOVE IT! I will be putting up more details to the review and pics! later on today hopefully. I'm now looking around for car mats, i may have found some.

p.s. reasons for such a short review, i've only driven the car for about 1 hr in total so far, i was on 24 hr support (Im a Network engineer) this weekend and there happened to be 2 high priority calls that took me 14hrs to fix in total! so time was short but i'll put it through its paces over the next few days and see what i find!

The sound of liquid you hear is the fuel sloshing about in the tank. There has been some threads asking that question before.

Glad you are enjoying the car, the novelty of the dashboard wont wear off, its fantastic!

All we need now are some pictures!:D

Pictures willbe up this evening hopefully :)

I've never heard that noise in a car before, think thats a minor gripe that could have been avoided. Doesn't take away from the excellence of the car however.

Its due to the fuel tank being under the front seats, normally its towards the back of a car. The advantage of the Civic's layout is the Magic Rear Seats, there's just so much more storage space.

If you are in doubt, make sure the bungs are out!

We are still waiting for pics mate :rolleyes: The only excuse acceptable for not getting pictures up is if you have been driving your car all this time [smilie=cheeky-grin: (Or if you have indeed put them up and I have missed out on that post) :oops:

There is actually an excuse......I've lost my phone (camera-phone)! the only reason i'm not overwhelmed with sorrow is because.......i've been driving my car! :)

I know where the phone is now, thanks to a courtesy call from my brother.

'Never fear, the pics will be here'

(you're not the only one with talent WC ;):D)
