This is probably one of the few brand new cars I’d actually be interested in buying brand new, sounds like shaping up to be a decent alternative to the ever popular Fiesta ST. I will have to wait and see what the monthly payments would be like on one of these.....

It's very popular with tradesman with their own private vehicles, as there's a very high chance of a van etc being stolen or written off in an accident for those people.

I can definitely see the benefits of it in some circumstances, having a quick look it seems better to get it online rather than at the dealership who might want to charge a bit more for it then you can get elsewhere.

Edit, my car’s definitely picked up a rattle today, hoped just one of the exhaust brackets has worked it’s way loose like it’s done once before a few years back.

Had my first 'big run' in my new car today, about a 120 mile round trip. Managed to average 48mpg which I'm pretty pleased with really out of a 2 litre 245 horsepower engine.

My car continues to be a strawberry floatin’ dude. Passed its MOT again. 07 plate, never failed one.

Mine passed today too. Also a 07 plate. It stomped all over Europe on its summer road trip too and easily smashed 130 mph on the autobahn. :datass:

Well barring needing a new shock absorber my car has passed its MOT (no idea on advisories yet though which there will probably be some of), although yet another wheel speed sensor has gone meaning that’ll need replacing at some point :fp: The Civic seems to be at that annoying stage where it sometimes fails but not bad enough to warrant getting rid just yet.
