So been on a long search for a CU2 Manual, one's finally popped up locally and already booked an appointment to go view the car, has anyone heard or had dealings with Company i've linked? First time i've had to book an appointment to view a car.
 
 
The car looks lovely in the pics, 9 years old and no damage to the wheels shows it's been looked after, so fingered crossed I may be coming home with it.

I think that used to be Bristol Motor Company?  If so, yes! :)  we bought my wife's CRV from them in 2016.  Perfectly happy with the purchase, very happy with the aftersales  when we discovered the DMF was on the way out two days later.  no quibbles at all.   Can't remember the guys name, but he's a Honda nut.  Owns a mint NSX.  Check them out on youtube:   (infact, that's the car you're wanting to see)

Yeah I did see the video, Can tell he's a Honda enthusiast, he actually mentions about the NSX and other hondas in that video.

 

I have high expectations of the Company, "Tom" Has been very helpful over emails so far, He's taken very indepth pictures of the car even as far to do a road test video, I'm looking forward to viewing it tomorrow.

Tom, that’s the guy. Good luck with it, hope it’s what you’re looking for!

I hope so too, I've been searching for over a year for a CU2 Manual, I'm hoping Saturday is the day.

Good luck on the viewing and hope it’s all ok.
I think you will be only the 3rd member Hear to have a manual CU2 including myself if you buy it.

Went ahead and bought it, and he still has the red NSX and recently purchased an immaculate 89 CRX my day was made just seeing the NSX and the CRX.

 

On to the Accord though, The car is immaculate inside and out, it's done 66K miles and you wouldn't know it, Full Honda Service history and one owner, Took it for a test drive and it's just simply surpassed my expectations, how nice it drives, how nice it handles and takes corners and bumpy roads, It makes great use of the 200bhp but a reflash of the ECU won't hurt ;) and simply seeing one in person it really is a great looking car.

 

I'll be picking it up tomorrow, after over a year of searching, finally got my hands on one, Today has made me a very happy Honda Fan boy.

Now that, looks like an absolute blinder! what a great way to sell, and buy, a used car. I've made a note of this guy and if I hadn't have just landed what I was looking for I would be on the phone to him, top marks there.

 

Well done mate, I'm pretty much on the same wave length as him regards Honda Accords, great stuff.

 

Mind you,they forecast rain tomorrow, probably best put if off for a few days... B)

I'd give the chap top marks, Invited my old man and myself into his home, offered us tea, done the paper work jobs a good un, I'd definitely use him again if I needed a new car.
