    Thought I'd post some details of my new 4th Generation CR-V. It's a 2013 2.2 diesel EX in Polished Metal. Very pleased with it so far, great on the motorway, love the panoramic sunroof and power tailgate. Managed 40mpg on a longish motorway run last night, fully laden and with the foot down fairly hard. If I was being picky, I'd like slightly taller gearing and a bit less wind noise, but these are minor complaints.

    I live in Surrey, and Honda dealership prices for these cars seem to vary wildly from North to South. I reckon I saved at least £1500 by buying this one from Newcastle Honda and getting it delivered at a cost of £1 per mile.

    The car on the left is our much loved 2nd Generation CR-V which will hopefully be sold by the end of this week. If this car wasn't so amazing, we wouldn't have bought the new CR-V and would have bought a lower spec Q5 or X3. The 4th Generation car cost nine times as much to buy, and has a lot to live up to!

    What a lovely 'photo :clap:

    Makes me think how much I miss cars with the black plastic bumpers, though. Much more practical that the painted ones we all have now.

    I miss some plastic bumpers more than others. My first car was a 1991 Rover 200 (Concerto) and the grey plastic trim on that car faded horribly!

    The black bumpers on the Honda are one of my favourite parts of the car's design. They give the car a more purposeful look, have been very tough and resistant to fading, and there's not a mark on them!

    If i had my way we would have a tourer and a saloon on the driveway.

    Instead we have a C4 HDI and my tourer and soon to include a 19k miles Renault Clio :Frown:

    If things work out for me and the mortgage advisor doesnt shoot me, Im probably going to have either a Civic or a Jazz for the missus to keep the Accord company at night.

    I think the FN2 is a distant dream now, she wants something "practical" :no:

    You can apply an "SE" badge to the back though right?

    Il take the badges off and put some Type-R ones on there instead

    Ohhhh.... a Type-R Civic, it can seat 4, got a big boot - she never specified what type of Civic :Whistle:
    - - - Updated - - -
    Years ago, when the first kid was on the way, she wanted a 4 door family car (and as I had just lost a sale to a turbo MR2), so I took her out in an Impreza. She wasnt happy with me, but it met all of her requirements. Problem is, she knows me too well, so I will have to be clever about the Type-R Civic. Probably have to debadge it and put 1.6 emblems on it.

    Its not sad to have 2 of the same :Laughing:

    You might as well keep the old CR-V if it has served you so well.

    Would you turn down a £5k car for £2k ?

    I know what you're saying - it's a shame to sell a car that you know and have spent money on getting "right". But it has served its purpose, and if I'm going to have the expense of taxing, maintaining and insuring two cars, I may as well have two cars that compliment each other. Am looking at late '90s Jap coupes and convertibles right now.
