    almost certain you can find the official honda type R ones for about £40-50.

    re: weight comment in other post - a good point if your not a traveling IT tech with laptops, pcs, tools and cables in the back :P :P

    its an amazing amazing car, your enjoyment wont change between the 180 miles you have done now and 50,000!

    if you are a forum lover, head over to Civinfo - Honda Civic Forum - quite a good forum for when stuff does go wrong!

    With plus-fours and brogues, I trust...

    Don't forget to put a rug on the back seat.

    Ooooh sounds good to me but I like the idea of going with the key and entering some info and out appears my new VAG Car guess thats just me

    eBay for car mats is common, just looking for some genuine VW ones for the Tiguan as my early 2000 Passat mats really don't fit / squish into the foot-wells on the Tiguan as for a start its accelerator is a floor hinged pedal rather than the top ones like the clutch thus the mat can press the accelerator a bit

    Just had to fill the new car up fully today (only done odds and sods before) and feel it in the wallet £84 worth of fuel returned about 36mpg which for the size of vehicle and the fact its not use to my driving (its far to smart for its own good) and i've been booting it a bit for fun to see how pokey it is etc thats not bad at all

    Not sure I'd say I'd never have another black car, but I have the same filth/stone chips issue on my Focus. Apparently silver is the way forward to avoid this, but pretty much every other car is some variation of silver at the mo...

    Prob a zetec-s then, the zetecs are a little sporty and Zetec-s are lower, different alloys and bumpers. Also often have better trim levels and a few extras, mine has electric powerfold mirrors for when I lock the car, climate control, parking sensors, bluetooth ford headunit for hands free and auto lights and auto wipers

    Before the fiesta I had a 06 focus and an 03 focus both tdcis, the older model seemed far better to drive and more fun, it was the 115 zetec model tho and my newer mk2 focus was a 90 studio model + heavier
