Hi there,

I am obviously new to this site and thought I would say hi. I have just ordered a new Civic Type S GT 2.2 with 18" Storms in NHB.

Really excited and can't wait til it arrives. I have had the iPod kit fitted and following the threads on this forum decided against the bassworks kit. However, due to the car being purchase on a car ownership scheme through work, my only option to upgrade the speakers are at the dealer. So I have reluctantly opted for the Co-Ax speakers in both front and rear. Anyone any thoughts? Are they much of an improvement on the standards?

Thanks

Al

Welcome from Dorset (Poole). The worst bit is the wait - hopefully for not too long. Mine has been great (13mos old now) no problems. This site is a great resource and can only add to your enthusiasm. Pottsy does a great job in looking after us. Don't forget to order your sticker and become a supporter[smilie=cheeky-grin:

Hi Al!

Welcome to civinfo.
Agree with Munros post, hopefully you will get an improvement, but aftermarket speakers is much better for the same amount of money. (or even less) :cool:

Al, I'm based in Eastleigh - just down the road from you and am considering buying the 1.8EX in bluish silver with 18" alloys. See

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/introduce-yourself/10978-hello-southampton.html

Can you tell me which dealer you used? Or as you bought on a car ownership scheme, was the car sourced out of the area?

Thanks.

Welcome - getting a few members in Hants - you in Winchester, Lurker in Eastleigh and me down the road Hedge End.

If you see a Milano Red Type S GT, (with Type R Grill), 18" Blades, driver wearing a chessey grin as he drives, likely to be me.

Hi Lurker

sorry for late reply, been away for a few days. My type S gt has only just been ordered and I have no idea where they will be sourcing it from. Looking at some other forums posted in oct last year, there is a suggestion that there is quite a long lead time (20 weeks in one instance), so I am hoping it won't be that long.

Which alloys you looking at?

All the best

Thanks for this,

Unfortunately as its a 'car ownership scheme' i don't think I am allowed to install any after market extras unless i purchase outright. As long as the honda co-ax make an improvement......

What really annoys me is that reading the forum, the iPod kit is really limited in its use! Thats a real shame as I was looking forward to just setting what I wanted to listen to on the ipod and listen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah just been away myself. I'm looking at the 18" Storms. I'm a bit concerned about the ride quality though but they looks so good.

I'm still looking for the best deal - it looks like drivethedeal.com has the best price - especially as I'm interested in the PCP deal. I don't think the Honda dealers can/will match the price I've seen there.

Will be looking to place my order next weekend and I agree with your comments about the iPod connector. Shame that it isn't just a UI onto all the iPod tracks. Think I'll still go for it though.

Lurker.
