So I've been very fortunate and my Dad has given me his 2006 Civic 2.2CDTI.
He's had the car for about 6 years. It now has 135k on the clock but has been reasonably well looked after.

Of course as with all free cars, there is a catch. It needs some mechanical care and some cosmetic work.

Mechanically it needs:

Replacement Clutch (Planning to take it down to TDI North for uprated clutch and SMF, have also started research on clutch pedal mod)
Suspected cracked Exhaust manifold (Hoping Premier Tuning will be able to sort this)
EGR needs to be cleaned out (already found the excellent guide on here).
After these are done I hope to have it remapped and may even delete the EGR

Cosmetically:

A Damn good clean inside and out.
AUX/Bluetooth added (already done some reading up on here)
Some paint work damage fixed (Low priority)
18" RX8 Wheels (incredibly low priority according to the wife.)
-40mm Springs (See above!)

Anyway here's the current state its in:

Won't be any progress for a while as car has to go back to my Dads for a bit as there has been a delay with his early retirement. Hopefully next update will be the deep clean!

Identical to mine that I bought of my father-in-law. Mines got half the mileage and lived in Belfast for most of its life but is an RN55 plate as well!

Meant to ask... Was it originally a Honda car? Mine was first registered to Honda themselves in Swindon as an RN55 so yours may be the same
