Civic is even better than city but as you mentioned its hard to find one though with less mileage...just hold on and try...you will definitely find one...it took me 3 months to find my Honda city...keep an eye out...

I think you might actually have a better chance to score a (JDM) type-r seeing that you are in europe,Over here in the states they are very rare to come by unless you dont mind doing the conversion yourself.


I was going to do a Civic Hatch type- r all jdm body pannels, Motor, turbo the whole shabang but I got a little bored with it and just sold it.

Just curious howcome you are not considering a vw they have some really nice models or even a Audi? My favirot have always been Japanese, Germen cars.

Lmao @ airbud's Pic! awsome dude I was just gonna say.

One thing you won't get from driving on the disgrace that are the roads of the UK, is fun....USA has all those big massive highways that lead you into the vastness that is America, UK has roads that will lead to some nice tire and wheel damages as your majestically glide from pothole to pothole, while you sit in never ending roadworks that never seem to fix anytthing, burning through costly petrol as you wonder when that group of neds decided to scratch your car durng the night, and why your car insurance now goes up instead of down, no matter you have 20 years clean driving.

Uk is not a place you buy a nice fancy car and expect it to remain that way, cheap and cheerful is the way to go, i would never soil a nice car with the roads of ther UK.

You're driving on the wrong roads then, I took a trip over to Kirkcaldy yesterday and was having an utter blast stretching the Cupra's legs on A and B roads on my way back to Glasgow after I had finished my meeting. I agree some of the roads are in a shocking state and yup if I had taken the most DIRECT route I would have spent more time in the typical M8, M74 roadwork crawlfest but half the fun of driving round here is finding those backroads.

I drive a 7 seater 04 reg Toyota Corrola Verso VVTi 1.8L, bought it for 3800 end of 2012 at auction with only 55,000miles on the clock, was owned by disabled driver. Very clean and reliable (though, I have read of some users having problems). The only thing I've had go is my starter motor last summer and the radio/cd player 2yrs ago (not paying 600 to replace). Bit of a petrol guzzler, though if you do short school runs like I do. If you want fuel efficiency, then, try and get something as recent as possible. All adds up over the years.

This is one case where the grass isn't really greener across the pond...lol. We have some truly terrible roads of our own. With that said, there are some excellent roads in some parts of the country. Depends on how well funded the state and city that you live in are. Ohio has a fantastic highway network, but our local roads are poo. Southern Ohio though has FANTASTIC, curvy roads that are a joy to run. Tennessee is similar.

Yeah, I heard Scotland has some fantastic roads and fantastic views. I'd love to take my Abarth over there haha

"Fun" is subjective, no?

You want something "fun" to drive? How about something which is bright pink and used to be used by clowns? Sounds fun to me...

And I am sorry, but a car is a method of transport, and all it does is get you from point A to point B.

Got rid of mine nearly 13 years ago, and have never ever looked back - I'd rather let someone else drive me around instead of me worrying about every insignificant tool on the road thinking they are a racing car driver, when they are not and never will be.

Do I think cars are 'cool'? Yes I do, I think they are really cool - but do I want to drive one on the roads, or through the mountains? No.

I long for the days when cars are driverless and fully electric, and I hope it happens in my lifetime, I really do.

bit of update.
Guys, i really don't want to be an "askhole", asking for suggestions and doing the opposite.Just being honest here, i looked around for a decent Civic or Corolla, but none met my criteria, what i found my mechanic didn't approved.Found some hidden flaws and cars were polished to sell, but with expensive faults hidden by the owners.

Looks like here in EU Civics and Corollas are a bit on the strange side, owners who are happy to own them won't sell, and who want to sell have problems.

Well, tired to be convinced buying a cat for a rabbit, i went to Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and asked the prices for a new car.Well, after a cold shower and running some numbers, the only brand i can stretch my budget and my purchase ability is Nissan.New Toyota and Honda are out of my league.

Option1 : wait and keep looking for a car who meets my criteria
option 2 : bite the bullet and buy a new car
option 3 : change criteria and run some searches

That's great, lol. I'm happy for you. Really, I am. But I'll gladly spend thousands on vehicles and the fuel to make them spit fire and give me hard adrenaline shots on twisty roads at night. There's something about having the privilege of guiding a missile of relatively advanced technology at speeds no man was designed to go that just gets my goat. Hard to explain to someone who couldn't care less.

Have you considered the standard Euro brands? They're honestly about on par with Nissan when it comes to base models. The Hyundai stuff isn't bad either, as long as it's not the 2.0 or 2.4L engine
