    Just decided to swap my 2.2dtec Accord Tourer for a Civic Type-R , I hope I've made the correct choice. Pick up new car tomorrow. Diesel was great but wanted something a little more sporty

    P.s. taking new car to France in 2 weeks, should be interesting how it drives long distance. The accord was great 80mph on cruise control and perfectly safe and stable in torrential downpours in Switzerland, very capable car

    I had a Civic Type-R as a weekend car for about a year. It was great fun but the Accord wins hands down for long distance cruising.

    Congrats on the new purchase, Type-Rs are great for grabbing by the scruff of the neck and throwing them about. Predictable, dependable, and long as it's not an abused example, reliable. In honesty I personally wouldn't want one as a daily, I like my plush stuff too much.

    Just driven it home! Feels like it wants to go faster all the time. Sounds great. 6th gear on motorway at 80 is quite high revs. But hey my last car was diesel. It's going to be fun to drive. At least it will make getting up and going to work more pleasurable :Smile:

    They are good fun to drive for sure and it does always constantly tease you to push it harder.

    I have just been through the receipts paperwork and have discovered that the car has been remapped and uprated induction kit installed. I thought it was a bit frantic!!!!

    Just merged your garage page into the existing thread :Thumbup:

    Let's hope she does, or you might have to consider trading the wife in for a more compliant model :Laughing:

    It's not a criticism of you, but me. I find it hard to go past a Honda dealership without stopping to look.
    I've clearly missed this one.
    Alas, whilst I used to go to Aston Uni for post grad evening meetings, and the annual round of interviewing undergrads for jobs, I've packed that all in now.
    I'll just look at your posts and go :Wub:

    I know.. I really want to see the new NSX Acura !!! They have taken orders for 3 in Black Country ! However I could be on to a winner.. My wife is due to change her car next year and she really enjoyed driving mine today. She has more money than me so if I lend it to her often she may be tempted away from the audi tt / abarth to the new Type-R.
