Congratulations

Very nice car, I like the wheels. By the looks of it you also have the xenon headlights as well.

Thanks!

Royal seems not to be very popular colour. Dark blue is one of my favourite colours and I think it suits well with glass roof, when with lighter colours the glass roof is more visible from outside.

Yes, Executive-model in Finland have Xenon-headlights, they are great.

I have Honda 16" seven-spoke wheel alloys with wintertyres. I think they look very nice too. They are inside the car in the first pictures. I will post some new pictures, when I have changed them to car in winter.

btw. I ordered the Civic without any test drive. I just red everybodys comments on this site, and some magazine reviews. I am very pleased with my purchase

Actually nearest dealer is not far away. I red other people comments on the car and I knew Honda is respected manufacturer and I do went to nearest dealer just to see car. I also believe Civic is suitable car in northern climates also, when in came second in 2006 winter-car test in leading finnish car-magazine (Tekniikan Maailma). So why not buy one

You seem to have similar car, good choise What does FK2 mean?

I have had car for four days now and run 500 kilometers. So far I haven't washed it yet. Car is still looking clean

Allright, I tought navy base sounded funny. I think those boats belong to fishermen.

Don't see many in that colour.

I think the colour and wheels makes it look very elegant and classy

I haven't regret my choices of colour and wheels. I didn't even much think about other possibilities. I would have also bought colour-coded side-protectors to bumbers and doors, but they were bit too expensive. Maybe I buy them later

Here is a picture of my Royal Civic with 16" winter tyres.
Tyres are studded Nokia Hakkapeliitta 5. When I changed them to car, they sounded much noisier than 17" summer tyres and I think they look a bit small under Civic. On the other hand these are much more comfortably than 17" summer tyres on sharp bumps and the studs are very good on icy road.
16" wheel alloys are original Honda accessories.
