Thanks. Very useful.

Got your new car yet? Do you like it?
Hi,
Yes, just picked it up. Really impressed. The engine is lovely to use. Lots of economy and loads of oomph when you put your foot down.

And the cabin is very nice. Lots of creature comforts.

I will enjoy owning this, just as I enjoyed the last civic.

Thanks for asking.

Have you driven a 2.2? Just want to know how it compares, paper stats never give a good indication.

Yes, I have driven the 1.4 vtec, the 2.2 ctdi and the type r. And now the 1.6 I-DTEC.

THE ctdi 2.2 was really good as I remember it. I think it gave the oomph pretty much all in one big dollop which was pretty awesome.
My 1.6 I-DTEC is smoother, also gives a big surge of torque, albeit in a possibly less big dollop.

I haven't ever driven the 2.2 I-DTEC though. I bet that is good.

Before you zoom off on your Dad's ZZR 1400, check your license again.
I believe you have the same case that I and many many other people do. Does your license have a third column next to the class A which has a 79(tri) in it?
That code is the important bit, 79(tri) means you are allowed to ride Trikes, but not bikes.



The requirements to ride a Bike is complicated, depending on wether you go direct or progressive, but Trikes are not treated like Bikes, you can ride one, no engine restrictions, if you have a full car license.
