2020 Honda Civic 1.5L Turbo

Hey guys.

Looking to purchase one of these soon (brand new from Japan...not the local variant), and I just wanted to get info from anyone who owns one, like running costs, problems (if any), how many kms on a full tank, Premium vs Super fuel, Oil Dilution, etc etc.

Re: Thoughts on the New Subaru Impreza?

Civic 1.5T is really nice. Saw one obliterate the smile off the face of an A4 1.8T driver. I think Honda earthdreams ivtec 1.5t is underrated. It may be spitting out more hp and torque than Honda claims on the spec sheet. Being 1.5t, you can get a lot of parts from Honda Miami easily so yes that’s ...

Re: Thoughts on the New Subaru Impreza?

I probably know more about what they sell than the sales people themselves. No bragging thing but some of them are sales hustlers. Just gargle some BS just to get a sale. When you get into certain engineering details, you would appreciate the Subaru quite a lot. Now I’m not saying it’s just perfect...

Re: Thoughts on the New Subaru Impreza?

The Impreza is truly a different drive experience. It’s nice to try a different flavor in things sometimes. It gives you a perspective other than the typical mundane fwd cars out there that we’ve come to accept. The Corolla and civic is just a copy and paste of the same blue print. But with the Imp...

Thoughts on the New Subaru Impreza?

Hey guys, just thought I'd check around locally for reviews on the new Subaru Impreza 1.6L they're selling here from Showroom, as the ones I see online are the 2.0L version. The features you're getting for the price are quite decent. I'm currently considering either this or a Honda Civic. How's reli...

When completed you will have to do a change of engine number, and that its. The other issue is the insurance as it is now a modified car in HP. You may want to ...

Also, what about if I wrap my car in a different colour... Each time I use a different wrap, I have to go line up to register the colour change? :lol:
