    ABS not working, no ABS light on

    TBH mate, mine on Ruby was the same. If it was a really icy bit of road, even doing 10mph the abs would go like crazy but the car would still be going forwards. ABS is crap on icy or really slippy roads.

    HELP - Buy a Civic M

    Hi Tiago. 1st thing to see is our buyers guide >>>> https://civic5.com/forum/main-pages/honda-civic-buyers-guide/ Next, have a good look thought he forum as most things from faults to modifications and whats parts are interchangeable are all in the forum mate. MB3 is the 1.5cc D series (with VTEC-E) These are really great all round cars, still quite nippy speed wise, but give incredible fuel ecconomy . Quite a few MB3's in the club.
  3. Here we go again, time to put forward your entries for this months competition. Remember folks, it can be another members civic or even your own! Lets see what civic M you think should win!

    Dawns Civic Aerodeck Updated 28/5/13

    Not been up to much being on lockdown cos of this stupid covid19 nonsense. Did however decide I hated those black centre caps on DD's wheels so managed to track down a set of oem ones and fitted them today. Looks way better I think

    Vti-s Turbo project

    It's never ending Jake, and always one bloody bolt to halt proceedings, but supose if all the jobs went smoothly it would soon get boring. The satisfaction you get when you finally get the offending bolt out and everything's back together is amazing.

    Vti-s Turbo project

    Wow!! That looks bloody amazing mate! That's giving me the incentive to get stuck into DD and get hers all removed/new bushes/painted. The difference that's made is immense bud, really does look superb. Only problem I have is garage doesnt have room to work in just now, tools are all packed away in boxes, nowhere to get new bushes or paint cos it's all shut! Damn it!! lol

    MeisterR coilovers

    Testing the water! I'm going to be putting DD's OEM suspension back on soon so wondering if anyones interested in a set of MeisterR Zeta S (think they're S, will need to check) for the civic mb/mc. They haven't done many miles tbh as DD spent most of the time just doing meets/shows but is now in daily use hence reverting back to oem. Will get pictures once i get them off the car. Still have the original box they came in and the C spanners for adjusting them. Looking for £350 (these were over £600 new and that was at a sale/group buy price) Let me know if you're interested folks

    parts clear out

    Hi Aky, I've removed your mobile number mate to stop you getting unwanted calls etc and for security reasons. Safest way to contact is to use our Personla Message (PM) system which is totally private. If you click on the users name, you will see an option to send a message to them. Any problems please let me or one of the team know and we can help you out. Dave

    Lock down

    Been hell adjusting tbh. Gayle and me have both had it (or at least a doctor told Gayle over the phone she has it without seeing her/testing her) so we're self quarantine until a week on Monday. I've had similar symptoms to Gayle, so assuming I've probs got it (or whatever Gayle has got!). I work in IT as a helpdesk technician, but our whole helpdesk are now working from home with council devices, which is limiting what we can do. I thought I'd love working from home, but tbh, a week in and I'm already disliking it big time! It's the way some others are reacting that is pissing me off though, I mean the mere mention of any kind of epidemic and folk go mad and empty supermarket shelves. I mean seriously, wtf is it all about when folk come out of our local Aldi with trolleys stacked high with every kind of bloody loo roll you can think of. Bloody muppets. Now there's none in any shops, along with the antibacterial hand gel. Folk are just so bloody single minded and selfish! Anyhoo, feeling a lot better than we did last week, just hope everyones ok on here too. Stay safe folks!

    Genuine airbox panel air filter

    Not sure mate as Mine gets done by the garage who service her. I used to do servicing myself in between the garage services but she doesn't do enough miles now to warrant that. Like to keep the service book stamped for her history. I know K & N do replacements for the Civic M's and think they're usually decent

    CAR OF THE MONTH - March 2020

    Nice civics there mate! The black Mb reminds me of a dark green one we used to have on here years ago, think it has the same alloys. Really suits those wheels! Are these civics in Civic5? Remember to post up a link to their project thread/topic
