Very nice Allan! Especially good to see that you've now turned to the "dark side" and joined CivInfo. Must admit, I've been busy recently so haven't been able to post much anywhere, including on the "other" site.
Seems though that, contrary to press opinion (which, with the exception of the Honest John" website, has largely been critical), most owners are very happy with their i-Shift Civics. Like others have said here, it probably takes a while to get used to the system and, for potential purchasers, it needs a good lengthy run through from a knowledgeable salesperson.
I must admit, I recently hired for the day a Smart ForTwo with an F1 style paddle shift. The changes were often quite jerky, especially when slipping down through the gearbox. However, despite its obvious failings I really liked it!!
Regretting a bit then that I didn't opt for i-Shift although, as my Civic is taking 6 months to deliver anyway, not sure if it would have been even more of a wait!!
And your one is certainly very, very shiny. Looks the biz!
