Hi All,

Joined up as I'm after a Type S GT but can't decide between the 1.8 or the 2.2. Looking for one around 12-18 months old.


Pete.

If you do a few miles well over the average, like a bit of torque and don't need the engine to scream to get you up there, go for the 2.2.
It will cost a bit more, but I'm well pleased with my 2.2 Type S GT.
I would happily keep it, but "Er Indoors" doesn't do my keeping cars for more than 18 - 24 months. :(

You will notice rapid, that there is a long standing friendly argument over which is the better ( 1.8 or 2.2) even though the 2.2 is the faster of the two cars :), but it's horse's for courses and each to his own.

Fuel of Satan ? - NEVER ! ... dirty smelly stuff ... also more expensive to buy and service the car ...

The "Holy Petrol" ... well - then you can have that famous Honda Howl !!! ...

Oohhhh - big words from an Englishman ! ...

Right then - I'll be in the UK this summer for a few 'cheap mods' (compared to s**ding Norwegian prices !) - I'll be timing it to coincide with a meet ...

Now I'll just have to make it a meet that you are attending ! ... Game On ? ... Swords or Pistols or Civics ? ... your choice, you cad :D ...

The "War" has been going on for a good while - this is no more than a 'local peace-keeping skirmish' ! ...

It was always going to happen once you asked the question in your initial post. :D
Sorry!

Right back to my Type S GT, been doing lots of research and a couple of things have come up.

1. Restricted rear view
2. Reports of bad paint work (bonnet)
3. Dash screen (rev counter etc.) hard to see when sun is bright..
