  • 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

  1. Have you actually got the F & F graphics on it mate or is that a photoshop? Like the look of that!
  2. My first car

    Hate when tossers do that to your car mate. The electric mirrors from any mb/mc civic will fit straight on, all have the same wiring connectors. Hope this helps.
  3. here, Ive got problems with my water-works (kidney stones). You might be the very company we need!
  4. And our new site is........OPEN!!! Hope to see you all there!
  5. Ktuned Avid Hardrace Innovate and more

    What error are you getting when trying to upload the pics mate? I'll have a look into it.
  6. Deffo mate! COTM (once we start it) should be really cool. Be a right mix of cars!
  7. Car of the month March 2018

    Jesse! Quiet this month! With all these new members joining I thought this would be a lot busier. C'mon folks, if you joined the club recently put you car forward for the competition! Can be standard/modified, all welcome! Let's see your civic M!
  8. Heavy shifter in reverse. B18 Deck

    If the car is left for say a couple of days how does it feel trying to select reverse? Difference in how it works when cold compared to warm/hot might indicate the oil needs changed as said above. Think though that the fact it has went in easier today without anything being done to the car suggests it more than likely is just needing bled. Could be any trapped air in the system has moved a bit making it easier to engage. So bleeding clutch, checking/changing oil along with checking the linkage/adjusting the linkage will I think solve the problems mate. Know if the linkage is even fractionally out it makes gear selection difficult. If the above doesn't cure it, then possible thrust bearing (although our would hear noise from that).
