Cheers. Close up there are swirl marks so it will need some detailing done. I wasn't really looking for a black car but I do love the way it looks.

looks great but would look better colour coded and would be £300 well spent

Got to say I'm loving the Civic so far, My only gripe is I'm getting quite a bit of noise from the rear suspension when I go around roundabouts and over some speed humps. I'll have to take it back into Honda see if I can get this sorted under the warranty. Apart from that it's all good and loving the fuel economy (Especially coming from a heavy 3.0 litre BMW).
As for the colour coding it's defo on the to do list but haven't got the funds right now.

Cheers. I'm going for the subtle look(sort off) so I want to keep the badge black but it might be nice to get the black enamel(if that's what they're made off?) badge. Planning to de-badge the back of the car as well (the Type S and Civic badges)

Good stuff mate.

Really makes a difference to front of car.

Was going to say to try and get a type S badge for grille before you fit it, but your going down the de-badge road.

Debadging - all the way ! ...

Now get rid of the baby seat and alarm decals inside the windows, and the various stickers inside the door frames ...
