GTO she is just sweet! One of the cleanest second hand piece i have come across in the recent months.

Enjoy the Vtec!

Hey GTO,
Congratulations! This surely is a steal with the kind of mileage your Civic has!
And yes, do get it dynoed before the mods start coming. Or do i even need to say so?
The 'gto's bhp' sticker looks nice.
P.S-The thread title is good.

congrats by the way and 8sh for such a low mileage car is a killer deal.

Congrats GTO for your new CIVIC.

"Originally Posted by ramzsys
it is best outsourced to fellow citizens around (CPO-Car Process Outsourcing).They do the research, buy it after a bargain, pay the tax, run-in, maintain and then sell it at a discount to potential customers like me."

This is perfectly fit here for your CIVIC

Civic is great car and as you said its high speed stability is excellent.
I have read on civic thread that this car has very low Ground Clearance.In Mumbai i think low GC is not a problem.

Waiting for more detail review.
Happy Revving and Drive safe

Congrats! Great find.

Can we really find such deals in non-metro city/town?
If one keeps an eye & has patience, then one might find such deal. But, would anyone in non-metro city really look at selling a low mileage car within 1/2 year of its purchase.

If I fail to find such a deal in pune in future, I would definitely search in mumbai.

At 8something lacs, you surely have lots of moolah left for your performance mods. The car is really in such a good shape(felt that the snaps have been tweaked)
Wishing you happy mile crunching with the Civic.

Congrats Rush

You got a killer deal...7k kms is as good as new.
I never knew there were so many civics available in used car market that too with such low mileage.

I guess after reading this thread some ANHC owners would feel like


Cheers

Congrats GTO!

Now you got me thinking, to go for a new city or a used/almost new Civic! . A 5L plus premium for the new car smell is not worth it But then everybody will not be lucky enough to get such a mint condition car.

What are the chances of getting such a deal outside Mumbai, say in Ahmedabad?

Congrats ! It certainly does look brand new. I'm sure you did not even consider the Altis, it defiantly wouldn't be a good replacement for the Vtec.
I replaced my NHC with the Altis which was a perfect upgrade from one practical car to another. But certainly the Civic is the best upgrade from the OHC.
I'm currently road tripping Bombay-Aurangabad in the Altis and surprised with it's highway character. I have been very relaxed at the backseat and the car seems to be sticking well to the road. Something even my Accord did not do too well. I hope the Civic is not too Honda like.
Smart move by buying outright, those interest rates are ridiculous. I too was about to sign the papers for the Fortuner's car loan and looked at our balance sheet that its better to just buy it outright this time,sometimes these financial year-end expenses are fun !

Congratulations! I kinda knew this is coming after you sold your OHC Vtec.. but thought you'll go for a used V6 Accord! Anyhow, you got a mint car at a bargain.. hoping to hear more on the mods planned ahead!
