Hi all I'm the proud and happy owner of a 1999 Honda Civic Coupe (EJ6) which I've owned for the past 8 years. In that time its gone through a lot of changes from the big body kit when I was younger to currently being a more performance focused machine. The reason I've joined is that I need a daily car, as the Civic travels further down the modifying route towards a track and summer toy I want a comfortable daily driver with some mods cons, add to that I am doing more mileage at work and get paid for mileage I want something that's more economical and I don't mind putting some miles on to. The Civic is on 76,000 miles and it seems a shame to put more miles on it trundling up and down the motorway. As I'm a Honda fan and want to stay with Honda I've been looking at getting a 7th Generation 2.2 CDTi, probably around the 100k mark as I estimate I'd only be doing about 10k a year so the higher mileage isn't a major concern. I've been looking at a number of cars on eBay and think that £2.5-£3k is a reasonable price for what I am after. The issues I know I should be looking out for are covered in Diesel Faults post in the 7th Generation section. For those that may be interested in the Civic, and because I like to share, there's a run down of the spec below; Full Respray in Honda Grand Prix White B18C4 Engine Conversion Tegiwa Carbon Fibre Induction Kit Blox Intake Manifold Japspeed 4-1 Stainless Manifold Custom 2.5" Stainless Steel Exhaust System with 3" Outwardly Rolled Tip 15x7" Rota Slipstreams with Yokohama Parada Spec2 195/45/50 Tyres MeisterR Superlow Coilovers EK9 Front ARB EK9 Rear ARB Blackworks Racing Rear Subframe Brace Skunk2 Front Camber Arms Skunk2 Rear LCA's BuddyClub Rear Camber Arms Blackworks Racing Toe Arms 282mm Front Brake Conversion Rear Disc Conversion The Civic will be coming off the road once I've got a daily so that I can strip down the bay and complete a full wire tuck and battery relocation, smooth and paint the engine bay and engine, change all bushes and underseal the whole car. The plan is to basically get it all ready for tracking it a lot during the next year and look to turbo it next year.
