    Hi Swifter. The 5.9kg figure depends on offset apparently (when I spoke to Oz UK). I weighed mine on the bathroom scales and got a shade under 6.0kgs. I use AD08R in 205/45 size. About 3% lower speed...

    I had a pheasant take out the front grille, headlight and radiator hose on an old Golf once. It also put a slight dent on the front of the bonnet. Cost an arm and a leg to sort. They really are...

    The ECU on the ZC32 is adaptive. It will advance timing if there is no knocking (ie 98/99RON fuel) and retard it if lesser fuels are used and it detects knock. However, timing is only added gradually...

    I tried Ferodo DS2500 and while they gave good stopping power, I wasn't impressed with the pedal feel. And the dust - you haven't experienced brake dust until you've tried these. Now using Endless...

    My 2 cents' worth; I think the steering on the ZC32 is really pretty good, esp for an electric system. It doesn't compare to the hydraulic system on my FD2 import Civic Type R, but little did (the...

    Hi Veeforce. The FD2 is a fantastic handling car with an amazing engine (8600rpm redline stock but will run 9000rpm all day long). A remap and a couple of breathing mods will see it knocking on the...

    NA engines are only 'done' due to emissions regulations. It's nothing to do with how good they are. Honda only went turbo so they could meet CO2 emissions requirements (all a big racket - but that's...

    Values of the Mk 2 Swift have taken a hit thanks to the imminent new Sport. But in the longer term, I fully expect the older NA model to hold its value very well as the last of a dying breed - old...

    I recall Chris at CTC saying that the ZC32 ECU will add timing if the car is run on super unleaded for a while. So that bodes well. And to be honest, a remap under warranty as Chris is planning to be...
