What would I loose?

Firstly if I sold my car and got a Civic Type R for example?

Secondly if I had my car re-mapped for 95 ron fuel....

Thirdly - ignore... I apologise Trudi.... Too much stress and hassle... Its meant to be a holiday!!

Fourthly, how are people coping with the stupid fuel prices at the moment? Some of garages around my way are charging 1.04 for normal unleaded....

Thirdly... Just give up and know that Trudi is saying my car is not normal and its such a huge problem having to put super unleaded in the thing, rather than normal unleaded... I offically give the hell up...Ignore her.

Fourthly, how are people coping with the stupid fuel prices at the moment? Some of garages around my way are charging 1.04 for normal unleaded....No idea as i don't drive.

civic type r`s are only any good whilst theyre up in the high revs phil,drove one a mate borrowed from work and whilst it went ok wouldnt think you`d be any better off really than your scooby if you want any fun-sure if you just wanna plod about its ok but why buy a performance car if thats it-maybe you should look at buying a diesel runabout though gotta be honest the micras absolutely mint on petrol only use my scooby at nights and wkends though so petrol aint really an issue in that, bet it only does about 150 mile a wk tops(during summer), the micra easily pays for itself-only takes about 25 quid to fill the tank aswell

Might cost a bit more mate when its over a £1 a litre!!

Mine just travels up and down the motorway at the moment, money is tight and its easy to just 'piss' away £50 on driving about a bit..
I'd love to be in it weekends and evenings, but sadly cant manage it too well at the moment

I just hope I'm gonna manage it up to Trudi's and then onto Zen without the plod stopping me about any documents.... ie MOT's.....
