  • About me
    Hi, I'm Dave, the founder and owner of Civic5.com. I have been into cars my whole life, spending time restoring classic 70's fords then moving into the Honda scene. Have now been a fan of Honda's for years.

    So, bit more about me. I'm an old git, and was with Dawn (aka Civic5 Moderator crazzzydawn in the forum) for 21 years, married to her for 17 of those years. She helped me set up and run the club and site from the start, and it was Dawn that got me into Honda's! Sadly, she passed away after a very brave fight with cancer (Jan 2013) and is very much missed by myself and a lot of the members here. Her spirit in the club lives on in her car, her beloved Civic Aerodeck ES known as "DD" in the forum (Dawns Deck). It's a car that's been tastefully modded, and one I will keep for ever.

    Recently, I met my new partner Gayle (aka Gayle in the forum) and she has been amazing! She's totally turned my life around, and makes me happy. Luckily, she's a petrol head too! She's also become a big part of Civic5, and loves the Honda scene now too! We got married in June 2017.
    Anyways, enough about me! Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, and welcome to Civic5

    Couple of photos of Dirty DD tonight. We went to see the new film "Le Mans" with Matt Damon playing the part of Carroll Shelby. Awesome film, and never knew about his actual racing driver friend Ken Myles who had had such an input into the development and actual racing of the Ford GT40. Man was amazing, and should have won the Le Mans race. That photo of the 3 GT40's crossing the finishing line together has a whole new meaning to me now after seeing the film. Highly recommended seeing it! And thanks to my Gayle for finding the film as it isn't advertised much.

    Dan's Blue Vti Aerodeck

    Lol, DD was doing sometimes less than 500 miles between mot's mate! Now she's starting her new role as my daily driver she's already put on 700 miles this month! The ATR seats are niiiice! Prefer them to dc2's

    Forgot to update this! Wee Carly Cooper is sold, and have been driving DD as my daily for the past month. Shes been getting a lot dirtier than she's been for a long time (not really been outside the garage in winter since 2012) so many hours spent washing her to keep this crappy salt off her. Shes also been putting on the miles! Normally between 500 miles to at most 1500 miles a year.......... she's done around 700 miles or more in the month since i sold Carly! And have to say, shes been driving absolutely spot on. Really like driving her although missing the mpg of the mini and the fact i could throw the mini around without a care in the world but obvs DD gets driven with much more caution! One bad thing though......as of next week, we no longer have the car park at work to park her in. Its been sold to build houses on. And as the surrounding car parks (including the one Carly got hit in) are all full before 8am, i have nowhere safe to park her. Really pissed off as i know the area/town (i was brought up there) and know its rough as hell. Theres also parky wardens on the go so going to be struggling to find anywhere to park her. The hunt continues!....... Will get a wee pic up soon of DD in her new role cos not had a photo of her for a while.

    Mb6 vtis side skirts and back bumper

    Can't believe nobody bought these. Good luck with the house move mate.

    Brake lines/pipes

    Hi Danny Doubtful they still make them new for off the shelf so you'll need to get one made up. If they do still have them on the shelf then It'll be a Honda dealership part. Most garages should be able to make one up for you but you will either need to take the car to them (which will be difficult as no brakes!) or see if you can remove the pipe and take it with you. Shouldn't cost that much as that's a fairly short pipe.

    MB6 aerodeck seat options?

    Think the only differences were with the pre facelift models. The seat backs had a different size of catch if i remember rightly, so you had to swap those over if swapping seats between facelift/pre facelift. Oh, and your car is the MC2 aerodeck mate (5 door vti/vtis are mb6, aerodeck vti/vtis are mc2)

    MA9 airbox?

    Oh, and get some photos of that MA9 posted!! Love the pre-facelift civic m's, and they're also getting rare nowadays.

    MA9 airbox?

    As far as i remember the later mb2/mb3 civics used the same air boxes, so any d14, d15 or d16 air boxes will fit bud.

    Daily MB2

    What show were you at mate? Be surprised how many owners of older classic cars actually welcome our modern classics at shows. Loving the mods mate, especially the rota grids! One of my fav wheels. Shes looking good!

    1999 V Reg MB6 VTi for sale

    Really glad she didn't sell mate (I know, that sounds bad!) and even more glad you got the work done! Now she has a chance of a very long and happy future. I'm back driving DD as a daily driver (much as I didnt want her on the road full time) and have to say I'm happy being back behind the wheel on a Civic M. Kinda feels like I didnt really have one when she was only doing at most 600 miles a year to shows and wee runs. Spent most of her time under her cover in the garage! Deffo get them photos uploaded here mate! Will be quite a few here glad that Vanessa's staying in the club!
