Civic EG6 finally arrives!!

So finally it arrived last week at Liverpool docks ready for collection, it's taken absolutely ages for it to arrive but it was definitely worth the wait. Once I got to the docks and located the car I had a quick look around it and couldn't stop smiling, I was relived to see it on dry land again and all in one piece. It looked to be in great condition and was drivable straight away once we'd boosted the battery to get it started. I took it straight for an MOT and it passed without a problem which was a great relief, from then it would be waiting for the customs docs to arrive then a quick trip to DVLA in Leeds to hand in the docs to register the vehicle over here.

The next day was a lovely clear day so I spent all day cleaning her up and inspecting the car to see if I could find any hidden extras perhaps and to just see the general quality of the car. Overall the car has been very well cared for, with the interior being extremely clean and the bodywork being in fairly decent condition considering its 13 years old now. I managed to take a few pictures of the car once I'd polished and wiped it down but it began to rain so I only got chance to take half a dozen.

So now that its all cleaned up I went to the DVLA the following day to collect my docs for the registration number so I could get a set of plates ready and finally take it the garage to install some of my tuning parts and also get a feel for the car. I managed to install a few parts such as both Carbing lower arm bars and the SARD FPR kit, also the main thing I wanted to install was the BMC CDA intake kit. After I fitted the BMC intake kit I took it out for a test drive and it was a rather cold night, I couldn't believe the difference the kit made compared to the old crumbly Trust Airnix cone filter that was previously on, It responded instantly and pulled violently through the VTEC power band, definitely worth it in my opinion even if it is a little pricey. I'll upload some more pics of the tuning parts once I take them because the weather has been awful recently and I'm too much of a women to go outside, haha.
