Those headlights don't look very white for HID's, nice pics though.

Would Rain-X help with the build up of snow on the small part of the rear screen

Yup. As I commented on that photo the Sport spec doesn't include HIDs here in Finland. Which really is too bad because of the longer winter and less sunlight overall. "Why Honda why?"

They don't even offer them as options as far as I know. They only come as standard on the Executive level trim.


Edit:
Don't have a clue about Rain-X since I haven't got my own car yet and don't know if they even sell that stuff here.

RainX wouldnt let snow accumulate like that, no.

It would just slide off as it formed/attached.

What was the snow handling like?

"Sides" or position lights are closer in to the center, just wondered as they obviously have headlight washers as standard in Finland, only on HID over here, that's what made me wonder.

Also sides wouldn't have washers.

Snow handling is OK I guess since I didn't crash

VSA thingy seemed to work very well although I've never driven another car
with ESP or whatever. I did manage to get it to a bit of a tail slide while
driving in a roundabout. I have to say the conditions were
exceptionally bad that day.

The car had snow tires on it like all cars here do during the winter months.
These ones were the kind that don't have metal studs on them. No idea what they're called in English.
Friction tires would be my best guess.


As for wanting to see one in action check this out if you haven't already:

It's made by a Czech Honda club by what I can understand. Looks like a lot of fun


Here's two more:

And finally in case anyone is interested here's a link to a special Honda Civic demo version of Toca Racing Driver 3

Just to be clear. Those pictures were taken in February.

In case someone is wondering the weather here is quite decent
with temperatures as high as 25 centigrade/77 fahrenheit this week. 8)

I wish it were July already... two more months until my car's delivery date.

That means two more months in my current Pug 206

Do all Civics from Veho come with those "VEHO" stickers attached? Will the warranty be void if you remove them?

(FYI for the Brits, Veho is a Finnish car dealer that deals Honda among a few other brands)

I removed my Rintajuoppo sticker immediately after i got the car.. So am i the only finnish person who's got the civic?

Today broke the 1100 km barrier! Drove a nice ride 140 kilometers, abt 80-110 km/h speeds. The average consumption was 6,1l / 100 km according to the computer. NICE :P

Those stickers are only on their test drive cars, I think and hope.
They'll propably try to stick one on the back window though.
Thanks for reminding me. I'll have to contact them so they won't bother.
