My new galaxy grey 1.8 sport

Hi ho,

Got my new Civic yesterday. Today I took it to some break-in run and of course took camera with me. Did some driving on this fabulous out-of-city small road, not much traffic so I could concentrate on those heavy accelerations and engine braking. Plus that road is simply tons of fun to drive, up&down, left&right






And an overall picture of the place







End of the day, I think I heard engine noise became less "sharp" so I guess the break in instructions here works But it still has only <200km's total

PS. The left front door is still a bit mis-aligned (some of the sharp-eye readers should have spotted this). Agreed with the dealer that it will get fixed when I get the missing addons. (door&bumper protectors, engine heater)

EDIT:
Also forgot to mention that I forgot my polarized filters home so there is a bit too much glare in these. But of course it's up to you if you like much glare or not...

I live in Lappeenranta, Finland. These shots were taken on a road that goes from here to place called Merenlahti.

I also tried to take some more urban shots but as there is currently a local festival going on there really was no room in any good spots... Lappeenranta has a really beautiful harbour & old fortifications but today it was crowded...

A funny detail I noticed from the full-sized pictures is that both the front and rear rims are exactly in sync. Honda logo's are in exactly same position
