WOW!!!!!!! I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!! it was a milano red Type R GT with the 19" rages!

only if i could get a job right now and a driving liscence, id have one! its so much more exciteing than the lotus elise i went out in. I know the lotus has more speed, but the civic jus had its own league.

out of all the cars ive been for rides in (BMW M6, Ferrari 308 GTB, Lotus elise mk2, Holden monaro VXR) The civic Type R was (i no it sounds a bit strange) the most exciteing. Dad got it up to 8000 revvs several times and i even got a little go, but only down my privet road so there was nothing to crash into, hehe! but i floored it in second and CHRIST did that go!!!! i absolutly loved the ride!!! I so am going to start saving for one of them!! hehe!

Thanks for all your tips on the type R guys and gals! i so so want to go for a ride in another one though! If anyone who lives in norwich would'nt mind taking me and my dad out for a little spin in their type R, it would be most appreciated! HAHA!!! it was so amazing! the sound was emmence from those pipes, oh my god!!!!! Oh and by the way, my dads name on civinfo is The Terminator

Cheers guys!!!!!!!!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Ah. Looks like you have fond the Type R grin :D
The best part about it is that it does not seem to go away. Glad you both enjoyed the experience.

Don't quote me, but I thought the new showroomtax was only on 4x4's people carriers, and BIG engined cars!!
So your Type R should be fine!!

I want one too, but have 3 kids and we can't all fit in!! I do still love my 1.8 EX though!![smilie=cheeky-grin:

I also thought it was only on high polluting cars?
yep.

and at 215 co2, the R falls squarely into that bracket :(


But I think the showroom tax doesn't come in until 2010-11 tax year?

road tax on the R rises a fair bit though - there is a thread with VED amounts per year for each model (inc R) in Off Topic :)
