Stumbled across this car, always wanted one but never thought I could afford it. Just wanted something cheap like the Yaris, but after seeing one in person I was a bit put off, kinda by how small and squashed it looked. So, ended up getting a Civic Sport 3dr (or Type S whatever you call it) 1.6 VTEC... which obviously costed a fair bit more.
Some teaser pics for now, very poor as they were taken late at night on an iPhone.
More tomorrow! Gonna give her a good old wash and wax, and put some blue headlights in!
edit: first pic is waaaaay too shaky, I'll leave just the one photo up

Tried my first 0-60 tonight in the civic.
Just had a short ram intake fitted by me and my mate, and a big bore exhaust system. Not much but ah well. Was getting a bit of torque steer suprisingly.
Did this on a private road so all is good.
Suprised by the results tbh! I can do better, the tyres were brand new on today, a bit slippery. And i didnt take it over 6k revs
And because I'm such a pro sprayer (cant be arsed to take lights off and use one rattle can of tint spray), the job is outstanding* :ninja:
*it's actually awful, i even oversprayed when i masked up the lights and had to use sticky stuff remover to get it off, now im gonna have to constantly rub in colour magic to blend it all back to red. Oh, and the lights aren't smooth or even.
So enjoy the amazing 3 hour* light transformation
And yes, I did use more than one strip of masking tape!*
oh but in all honesty they are actually as dark as each other. The right one is shadowed by the house but the left got more light to it in this photo
