In the Civic range, in petrol, the Civic winds hands down! neednt think of a second opinion, i would say. Unless u want to step down or up a price. ur dentist's son will be very happy with it, and if hez happy , ur dentist is happy, and if she is happy, ur teeths are happy!

Hope this helps...

If he is a enthusiast then he will have his own choice of car.

Rodeo, I cant agree with you more. I told my friend/dentist that I would be happy to take her son for a few revs in my RS just for him to get the feel of it.

The NHC's relatively woolly handling & insipid engines have been a turn off for a lot of people who've compared it to the OHC.

Seeing the price difference of about 5-6L I would still stick to the Civic
My chauffer can barely manage my stock RS. Yuvi (Mad Monkey) was after me to re-chip too but my needs were different. My chauffer seems to prefer me 90 bhp 1996 Astra to the RS.

My mom complined about her NHC too. The girl took my cousins Vtec out (she has a CVT) for a spin when I was out of town. I got a earful from the family when i got back. Whats with the women I know. All of them have lead feet. :-(

The Laura is out. Too much money. RS or Civic is now the choice. Civic is leading the race because of

a) resale value - the car won tbe kept more than 5 years
b) A.S.S
c) The Auto box will come useful in heavy traffic.

No she is not. BTW found out today that Viper knows her too and she is a distant cousin of my wife.
