i was just testing the two cameras i have. no art shot by any means. but i do plan to take a picture of the dirt on top of my engine, and post it on another site.

btw, one of the cameras could not handle taking pictures of it in the dark, with the flash (the evening of the day i got the car). house, trees, flowers all fine. the new car, no go. pictures all too dark, with overexposed number plate. must be reflecting too much light from the flash which makes the shutter closing too soon (and actually i used to think that the shutter speed with the flash is always the same - well apparently not with those new cameras). and i was so eager to send pictures home to my family the day i got it

That looks stunning in red! I wasn't really allowed red, if you know what I mean, but it really does suit the car.

That is one SHINEY Milano, and no doubt!!!! 8) 8) 8)

Still haven't seen any pics of you with the car, as mentioned in the title - I like to put faces to names!!!

Are there many New Civics on the road in Denmark yet??

he he if you look carefully, in the first picture there is a reflection of me with the camera

not so many of them in denmark, no. our dealer said back in march he delivered 15 or 16 and he sold all that was coming till august at that time point. so far, my husband saw one on the motorway once, and i saw one in our work parking lot, the day after i got mine.

Ahhh......now I see you!!!!

My Honda dealer has said much the same thing.......he's sold quite a few......but I'm yet to see any on the roads!

Good thing really, as it would only make me want mine to come sooner!!!!!

Next Friday is the current estimate for delivery of my 'Sport' in Nighthawk Black, with 18" Storm's and Leather!!!!!

Oh, and yes, you could say that i am looking forward to getting it!!!

The black plastic trim works really well with the red, a little bit 205 GTi don't you think?

Personally I don't like the red because of the black trim, and it's a flat red which looks okay to a point, but doesn't have the same shine as the metallics.

I sort of wish I'd gone for the bright blue now, but que sera.

do ferraris come in metallic? suspect not, not that i ever owned a ferrari . to me, red is self-sufficient.. red is red, should i say Red. though, of course, matter of taste.

Gotta agree with Gissing - I really like the 'Vivid Blue' now, but would like to see one 'in the flesh' just to check if it's as nice as in the pics I've seen.....

I'm sure my Nighthawk will be just as cool though, when it finally arrives this week!!!!!!

Rest assured, pics WILL be posted the very day I get it. :P :P
