None as yet, unless you count the obligatory CD player and novelty air freshner

I need some alloys, but I'm after standard Honda ones - nothing fancy, just some 15 or 16's I reckon

Thanks mate!

It's nothing massively special. It's an R-reg (97) 1.4i, 6th generation I think? It's done 70k. I was going for a 5th gen, but it's difficult to find one that isn't totally beaten up for an affordable price.

Mine's a hatch mate. I'm not really looking to sell, I've only just bought it, and it's a good car. Difficult to find in the condition it's in, which I'm sure you know! What model have you got?

Yours looks nothing short of sexual. Whats the mileage? Theres no doubt I would've had yours off you in a second, only trouble is the ol' insurance. I'm 22, just been driving a year, only had my 6th for 2 months. I'm paying enough as it is!

I'll get some pics of mine up tomorrow I should think. I'm at work at the moment! I've gotta take some pics as well. I'll warn you - it needs a wash!

Ah, cool, I see. I have to say this is the most responsive and most helpful forum I think I've ever been on!

My insurance is 690, thats with eCar, in case anyone was wondering!

I'm gonna have to pass on your beaut, skinny. I'm in no position to be buying a new car, and I'm quite fond of my EK ;) though theres no doubt that yours is a superb example.
