yeah 82k, its a little nipper! looks in good condition to

these are the first of the ek's and £1000 about book price, if you can get it for £900 then you'll be happy. the 1.4's are a bit slow, but that comes from me and edd, alec can keep up with us so they cant be all that slow.

Yeh Alec tells me that Civics properly looked after can do something in the region of about 200k miles? And as I'm only 17 I don't think I really can go for something with a bigger engine just yet lol

Haha yeh something like that! So is what you said true Alec? That if looked after properly the car could do about 200k miles? or do I need a second opinion off someone who knows a bit more about cars ;)

Mine has got 155k on it and i took it out on coombe and ragged the bollocks off the poor thing and it still held togeather!

I rag it on a daily basis (i dont do slow driving) so 82k is nothing at all seriously

Cheers for all the comments guys! It's been really helpful. Fingers crossed it hasn't sold by Friday because that's the first opportunity I have to go see it! And if it hasn't sold and I do buy it, lets just hope Alec can get it back to my house in one piece! haha
