    Hiii boys and girls.
    New member here... Matty, 30y/o from Teesside, North East, UK.
    I've had loads of cars over the years but this is my first Honda!
    Traded in a Volvo C30 D3 R-Design to buy Harry (thats my cars name)

    So... Bought from local Honda dealer. 2012 Civic EX GT.
    Dealer raved about how rare the spec of the car was since it was originally a demonstrator.... since buying I've not seen another with the same trim?
    Rear roof spoiler, the carbon fibre style body kit and the sill protectors that light up with the word Civic... not sure how unusual these upgrades actually are?

    So. Car had 29k on when I bought it a few weeks ago. Haven't done anything in terms of mods.... had 4 premium tyres fitted, all 4 alloys powder coated in a silver glitter finish and spent over a week detailing it inside and out. Full paint correction and machine polish on the outside to remove swirl marks. Leather deep cleaned and moisturised etc. New set of car mats - the mats were part of the deal when I bought the car.

    I'm really happy with it now that it is up to 'my' standards. I'm a bit OCD. Well, a lot OCD... wheel arch liners have been cleaned with road tar remover and everything. Engine bay fully washed. It ain't getting any cleaner than it is now thats for sure!

    Paid 10k for it in total... that was with everything - transferring my private plate over and also took out the 3 year warranty with Honda. Have also since buying the car taken out a 3 year service plan with Honda too.

    So heres a few pics...
