    Hey peeps


    Well that's it, after years of ploughing money into the Coupe, it's now time to put it to sleep for good. It has been my pride and joy for many years, been all over Europe with it on the Modball 2008, been to many meets, car shows and also was front cover on Max Power back in July this year.


    I would like to say thanks to everyone that helped me with this car, staff members, forum members and traders alike! :nod:


    Thanks to Maz & Russell @ Hond-R especially for creating an amazing looking engine bay and all their help with the problems I was having after the Spectre Customs "f**k up". Also I would like to thank ArTech Tuning for doing an amazing job on getting the car running like a dream! :Smile:


    Other mentions go out too...


    Aaron & Lou @ LaidBackRacing, Jason & Martin @ Esserworks, Lex @ AceImageUK, Jerrick @ MeisterR, Faz @ Funky Power, James @ TweakCulture, Enigma Automotive, VTEC Direct, Tokyo Express, and anyone else I have missed out!


    It's a sad time, but things can only get better, with me putting a deposit down on a Pre-Facelift Honda Integra Type-R (DC5) in Championship White next week :w00t: - No this doesn't mean im leaving CivicLife, Civics have always been my passion and if I could afford it I would get another Civic as well. Which I will probably do in later life. For now though, I will be here as always, making the Civic community the best experience for all of you. :nod: :community:


    Anyway, again thanks to everyone for all the help and support over these few years! It's been great! :horns:


    Here is the spec of when the car was in its prime only about 6 months ago! And I have also got a full collection of the photos from the Max Power shoot, so you can all see what a beauty she was :Frown:

    Well done for getting over the fuck ups in the past dude... at least you will remember the car in its prime rather than if you sold it after the Spectre nightmare where you wouldn't have the fond memories of it

    Shame to see the end of the coupe but onwards and upwards, and i think the DC5 may make up for it slightly!
