Is there any difference other that number of doors between a Honda Civic Type-S and the normal one? I'm talking about 2008 model. If looking for one of those, what should I be aware of? I'm interested in the 2.2 diesel.
Another question is, what is your view on a fuel and air energiser (activator)?

There were actually some significant mechanical changes for the Type-S, including wider-track rear suspension, an upgraded interior and a more aggressive body kit. That said, it’s still not THAT sporty, and a regular Civic is near enough as good to drive. The 2.2 diesel is an excellent engine, with good economy and very solid reliability. As for an ‘air energiser’ I’m guessing this is some kind of aftermarket add-on? Beware such things — they tend to promise much and deliver little, and usually aren’t worth the money.
