    Hi All.
    New member living in Yorkshire. Just bought an 06 CR-V Executive Auto about 3 weeks ago and have put 1k miles on since.Loving it. What a fantastic car.I have recently been made redundant and my last company car was a £33k Insignia Touring Elite with all the options. I have to say I prefer my £4k V from a point of view of comfort and practicality. It's basically as we'll equipped too. Just added a Parrot phone system, fixed the nav and a dodgy mirror and I can see me driving it for a long time. Some years ago I had a left hand drive 1st Generation Civic and a Quintet (a really long time ago) but I have always remembered how much I liked them and now having been released from the bondage of company car hood and being able to choose my own car with my own cash I wanted a Honda. Hoping to get some tips from you guys as I'm hoping to do as much hands on as I can. Cheers

    Welcome to the club from another Yorkshire man well not exactly I'm a Geordie almost living in Yorkshire. No doubt when the peeps in the know arrive all your questions will be answered. But in the meantime just breeze around the place make yourself at home. If you are unfamiliar with the place you'll find different vehicle categories just click on the CR-V and read away. If you want something specific just use the search option.
    Hope to see you at one of our meets in the near future.

    Welcome to HK Lango. :welcome:
    Great to read that you are now free to make your own choices.
    If you like hands-on, there are many DIY's on the site. Although they aren't all CR-Vs, the principles are the same.
    Just shout if you need any help. :Hey:

    Thanks Nels.
    I'm sure I will be begging for help soon as I am (in)famous for the phrase "oops I've broken it" as a last resort when I can't find someone/something else to blame! Just ask my wife.

    My technical knowledge is limited.
    However, there's usually someone about soon that can help.
    I found it really helped me looking through the site. I read almost all the posts on the 7th and 8th Generation Accords.
    Only problem is, I can't remember it all ! :crazyeyes:

    Welcome to HK Lango :Hey::welcome:

    Ask away if you can't find something. You've come to the best place for all things Honda.
    I'm not the best technically but many members really do know their stuff.

    Welcome to HK @Lango, it's a shame that Honda aren't more popular as a company car option - it's littered with German cars.

    Hope that your CR-V treats you well in the coming years :Smile:

    Many thanks for the welcome. Really enjoying the CR-V. Getting off for days out whilst the kids are out of school. Finding it a really good family vehicle if a little thirsty but I knew that before buying so can't complain.
