I just drove a Civic Type-R!

I want one.

I am still shaking a little bit...

The CEO of where I worked asked someone to take her across Sheffield to a meeting and drive it back....woo-hoo!

I couldnt tell anyone at work but I gave it such a spanking!

It really is as fast as peopel say, when VTec kicks in it really puts you back in your seat!

I am just rambling now....I sooooo want one for xmas!

Matt

Seriousley? Is a 20v Marea up to the standard of a Type-R? If so, I want one of those too!

And it certainly does'nt have that VTEC kick when you hit 6,000rpm and the Novitec Sei can't rev to 9,000 either!!

Civic Type R are like fat girls and scooters. Great fun until you realise your mates are laughing at you. I to have driven one, in fact two and yes the engines do go quite well, but they look like a shed! The styling is embarrasing and you really feel that they were designed to have a zimmer frame in the boot.

Unfortunately these are starting to suffer the old image problem, the same as Capri's in the 70's, XR3i in the 80's and Imprezza's in the 90's. The 00's hasn't really settled on the most embarrasing Kev car yet, all the Typre R's are begining to show signs but the Civic we think will lead it because it looks so damn awful as well!

If you buy one, abuse it for a year and trade it in before the image police really dig their nails in and make them really hard to sell like the aforementioned list.
