Hey everyone!

My names Garry from England :) Just thought I would pop by and introduce myself and a little bit of history...

So I sold my 1997 EK9 this morning, with much regret, due to having a mortgage, a wedding to pay for and no doubt, the sound of tiny feet in the near future.

I loved my Honda Civic and although I looked around I wanted something that had some power but was also good on the fuel... So I purchased myself a 2008 Honda Civic Type-S - 2.2 CDTi

40k on the clock, full service history and one older lady owner. The car is immaculate with not a stone chip, scuff or scratch in site!

Pick up my baby on Friday.

EK9:






New Type-S:

Hello Garry and welcome to :civinfo: :D

Nice EK and even nice Type-S :top:
I saw the photo online before I went to test drive it and wasnt 100% sure on the red... but when I saw it in the flesh the Milano red is a stunning colour on the civic!

hello and welcome in chap. I might be biased (yep!) but I think the 2.2 is a cracking car :)
Thanks bud, I spent 6 months looking for my next car and the 2.2 kept popping up and being an avid civic fan, it was a no brainer for me!

Hello and welcome to civinfo :)
Thanks for the warm welcome :D

The dark tint ( black) or the light smoke look great on a milano and of course yellow;)

However, the awkward moment when you've lived on your street for 2 years, you buy yourself a Milano Red Type S and then across the road a Milano Red Type R appears!! Haha :|
