4 hours and 4 pages of Congratulations, GTO you have some fan following man. Everyone including me were waiting for the purchase. The real fun will begin when GTO starts the mods. We are hangin in here GTO keep it comin!!
Congrats GTO on such a dream buy. Your car has made me drooling and I just can't wait to ask this.
I was about to start a thread on the same topic, but your thread has tempted me to put my query here. Sorry to bug your thread but I am riding the similar boat like you (Well almost similar)
1. I have always liked the civic since it was launched.
2. I could never justify the price for a new civic.
3. I drive a Swift VDi back home (in Haryana).
4. And last but not the least, I want to present a (used) Civic to my father, bought from my own money as a replacement of Swift.
My budget is around 7-7.5 lakhs and I want to buy as soon as I am back home (intended August 2010).
I look forward to all my friends to help me out in this.
I should confess that I already knew and was wondering why is it taking so long for you to post?!
Anyways, as usual, a great writeup to start with. Why do I get this feeling that in a few years time I might end up buying a used Civic, 07 white color, 75k kms (approx) on the odo, well maintained, and a t-bhp car, as my next car?!
This is as good as getting a 45% discount from Honda straight! Awesome deal. Congrats. Can we have a quick comparo of OHC vs.Civic and C vs.Civic, right from the owner of all the 3 (ex-owner for OHC though!) ? Will be lots of fun.
Lots of TBHPians looking to purchase a new car are going to consider buying a higher segment used car. When the highly respected super admin has made such a move, it definitely is going to have an impact on TBHP.
Congrats GTO on your buy, your thread and on showing the way. Round of applause!!!
