    Sri

    Evening folks new member here. Currently have a Honda civic type s. However I have seen in a local vauxhaul dealer a 6 month old 1.8 sri xp, demo model with 800 miles on the clock. Back in 06 I used to have a 1.8 sri but this was the old model with the 125bhp engine. Does anyone know how the two cars compare? Much obliged for any answers

    according to parkers the old 1.8 is the quicker to 60 but the mk5 has a very slightly higher top speed

    Update. I bought sri got what I wanted for the civic and am well pleased with my new motor. BUT I get it home and notice a deep chip on top of one of the offside rear alloy spokes (looks like a tool had been dropped on it) TBF you can only see it when the wheel is in a certain position,so they may not have known about it. So I ring VX and not sure who i need to talk to,hold on for an operator then get message no 1 available,please leave a message and we will ring you back within 30 mins,I leave a message about the prob,3hrs and no call so I ring again and finally get to talk to the bloke who sold me the car. I tell him the story and he says he is happy to have it put right for me,he will talk to the alloy bloke and ring me back. 2 days and no call back.So this morn I ring and ask to talk to the alloy bloke, tell him the story, he has no idea who I am so obviously nobody has spoken to him. I tell him what the salesman said and he says he will speak to him and ring me back. This was 10am today and nobody has rung me back. So folks what would you do next?

    Will put some up when I recharge the camera. Looks very nice or at least it does until the alloy starts to corrode
