The tourers can look very nice, especially when they have all the trimmings like this one. I've always liked the idea of an R8 I could sleep in :laughing2

I'm even envious of the number plates. The continental font and the solid pressed-aluminium look. Can't beat it.

An interior photo would be nice to see too...

I think they always look much better balanced than the underlying 400.

It's certainly a styling clue that Honda overlooked with the Civic Estate.

I think Jeremy also feels the same way about the Montego.

However, finding a rust-free countryman is nigh on impossible...

Thanks for all the nice replies.
I am only the third keeper of this Tourer and it has done just 124.000 km.
The registration is Dutch.
This is the interior (unfortunatily I forgot to empty the doorbin... :oops )
