  5. Welcome @BB Baboonface . I didn't expect you to get onto HK so quick :Smile: Glad to see another great example of a 7th Generation Civic, and an EV1 to boot :Smile:

    Seeing the stance on your girl, I'm gonna have to drop mine now... So much for me saving some money to move house :Smile:

    How are the Greenstuff brake pads on your car? I have the yellowstuff pads on my car from when I went on the track, and so far they're good on normal roads too.

      Many thanks Roger, very grateful you suggested joining :Smile:

      Have to have chat about options for lowering at some point. Got EP3 coilies on mine which fit fine, but the 15mm factory ride height difference allows less adjustment if you don't want to be scraping along the deck!

      As for pads, the Greenstuff seem very effective so far. No need to warm them up, but the onset of winter will be the acid test.
