    Talking Bye Bye Astra... Hello...

    Honda Civic Type R!!!

    Really pleased with my new buy, came in through a part exchange at work and I snapped it up within a few hours, one lady owner.. 04 plate with a measley 6000 miles on the clock, looks like shes just drove out of a show room.

    Havent stopped smiling yet, pics to follow tommorow!

    As for the performance, just a tad noticeable from my old 1.6 16v the sound and pull of the VTEC is outta this world!!
    Regards
    Rich C

    Former owner of Astra SXi.. New owner of a Satin Silver Civic Type R.. "Bye Bye GTi"!!

    Nice one mate

    Just one thing mate, as a lot of CTR owners complain that the car does not feel fast sometimes. This is because on the CTRs, the engine needs running in to at least 8000-10000 miles and thats when the true power is unleashed. The CTR is the only motor so far where I really felt the adrenalin pumping at full tilt when the loud pedal was put to the floor in third gear VTEC. The sound and pull was phenomenal

    Oh and make sure the oil is topped up regularly as the CTR is really thirsty when it comes to oil

    This car would whop your 1.6 mate. The CTR is GSi territory if you ask me

    Nice one mate, I nearly went for one of these beasts! I’ve had a go in a mate’s one and they can go some when you hit the V-TEC!
