Ok peeps. With shrek pretty much damned to the scrapyard its time to start thinking about a new car. IM thinking about something cheap to buy,cheap(ish)to insure,very reliable(even when tuned)(which points too japan)and rather nippy

Choice 1 is a honda civic EK 1.5 VTEC
Choice 2 Honda civic EG(any engine bigger than the 1.35)

If the worst cxomes to the worst
3.Brand new ford ka with free insurance

Im also open to suggestions from u guys.What should i do. Anyone got loadsa info on the civic. I dont understand them really with the silly names like EP,EK,EG,EK9. Whats up with mk1,2,3,4,5,5a,and 6 like the ol' ezza

If you can afford insurance on the 1.6 VTI, go for that, fast, reliable and loads of bits for it.

If you can afford a Coupe, go for one of them, look better (IMO) not loads about and more practical.

The Coupe VTI is like rocking horse poop, very difficult to get hold of, but suprise suprise, i am selling one for a very reasonable price.

You won't be disappointed with your civic, which ever you get.

The EK 1.5 VTEC is a great all rounder. Looks good, is quick, is v.reliable, and doesn't cost the earth to run either smile

I think new cars are a waste of time, the amount of value you loose.

Put it this way, the £10k you spend on your average 1.2 clio, you could get a 3 year old prestigue car, more reliable and better to drive.

Personally i think you are making a big mistake buying a brand new car, especially as it will loose huge amounts in the first 3 years.
