Default Civic D15Z6

I bought this Civic 2days ago, she is MoT'd until April 2014 and Taxed until Sep 2013.


I havent driven since October 2011, when I sold my Saxo VTR while living in Northern Ireland, to raise money for moving to London UK where I live now. My girlfriend and I have been talking about getting a car again for a number of months, it HAD to be a Honda <3 I have always wanted a Honda but it never worked out before.




I have started to clean her up, hoovering etc. She has been owned only by two women.


The original Honda mats were very stained so I have started to clean them up with Auto Glym shampoo.




I have about 15 months experience working as a mechanic so I'm gonna be doing work on the car myself, as much as I can thought at the moment I have no tools, I need to get them delivered from my Grans in N.Ireland.

My plans, at the moment, are simple, cleancleancleeeeean, get insurance sorted next week, and DRIIIIIVE!
Then I will see what comes next.....

That's just part of his signature.

Welcome! A project from a foreign land is always interesting. I've never even seen that motor before! It looks like it has a y8 intake manifold and a y7 exhaust manifold. Interesting.

What sort of plans do you have for her? It is a she, right?
