As now seems the norm, I start with a brief moan about the Ciao picture for this category! Whilst putting this particular car “on the books” in August 2007, Ciao have published a picture of the old model here – for which there is also a category! To save any confusion, this category AND the...

Let's get this straight from the start. Some people see driving simply as a means of getting from A to B as comfortably as possible, others see driving as a means of getting from A to B with as much kit in the car as possible, yet more folks see driving as a chore to be tolerated and finally...

So, I've owned this car from new for 3 years, 2 weeks, 6 days, 1 hour and 17 minutes, and I can honestly say it has that affect on you. If someone asks "how long have you had your car?" would you be able to tell them the day you bought it? That's the effect this car has on 90% of it's owners...

ConsOld looks, Sometimes harsh ride

I have owned a Honda Civic Type R (2005 Model) for around six months now. I had many concerns about the car before buying it, however not one of these concerns still hangs over my ownership. I chose to buy a red example, but this is personal preference. I was concerned about the road noise of the...

Honda announced this limited edition model to commemorate 30 years of the Civic model in production. As a UK model it was restricted to 300 examples: 100 Red, 100 Black, 100 Silver. I was fortunate enough to order one back in October 2002 in Silver for early 2003 delivery. The Type R in standard...

As a 21 year-old guy, understandably insurance was always going to be a deal-breaker when buying a civic type-R. But having sorted finances, I went ahead and decided to go for it. After turning 21, I thought of getting a nippier car. since passing my test I have driven a peugeot 106 diesel, and...

My Type R is going tomorrow and I'll be very sad! I wanted one for about 4 years and finally got one about 5 months ago, an 02 plate with 36k on the clock when I got it.

When you first see the Civic Type R you may wonder what the fuss about. Well the New Civic Type R is wonderfully shaped and crafted but a lot of the real interest lies under the gracefully shaped body. What lies beneath is a 2.0ltr i-vtec-i engine pumping out 200 bhp, which actually changes...

I regret ever setting eyes upon my Type R. I purchased a fully serviced 53-plate Honda Civic Type R from a Honda dealership in Grantham in November 2006. My reasons for choosing Honda was because I deemed them to be reliable and I went through a dealership specifically for warranty cover. After 4...
