Hi everybody,
after driving my sprinter barge around for the last 2 years without owning a car aswel, it feelsgood to be back in a honda as this is my 5th. eg6, prelude vtec, dc2 96 spec then an s2000.
not quite what I'd usually go for but the girlfriend will be using it for work so we needed a diesel.
quite surprised how much I like it though. its a 56 plate type s ctdi which has been to mars and back doing 148k but its sooo clean and tight.
got quite a bargain imho at only £3850.
now I knew it was coming but when I test drove the car, I gave the clutch a good hiding and no signs of any slip. then the next day it happened. same as everyone elses. 4th gear clutch slips up to about 2.5 k then drops back down, so just weighing my options up. looks like a cg and a remap popossibly ;) just a bit worried it will be a bit harsh for my mrs everyday driving. anyway im sure you all dont want another diesel clutch debate so will leave it there.

cheers. billy :D

:welcome4:...:cool:. I have 150k on my 07 and it still runs sweet. Only major stuff I've had to sort recently is 2 front shocks, droplinks, discs and pads. Quite cheap if you shop around and get someone to fit at a decent price.;)
