Nice playing about mate but its more than just the wheels and ride height for me. The plasticy tackiness such as the arches and grille is a no-no.

Wish they could just get it right first time. Its like when they first brought out the 8th Gen. Everyone had to do the colour coding themselves. worst.

Good effort

I propose this to become the "official" virtual tuning thread for the 9th civic: it's got one hell of a name, to begin with!

Would like to see the car in 'polished metal' colour to see how it blends in with the grey lower grill and whell arches.

Not too bad from the side although don't like the sweeping line just above the rear arch and have to agree with the others about the grille :/

Honda's Design Process:

Design top of the range model > add more doors > take the alloys off > remove colour coded everything > make ride height higher > put crappy wheels on > add dustbin grey skirts > make top of the range model more appealling > make more money

I guess what im saying is, wait until you see the whole range before throwing the baby out with the bath water.

First speed bump would rip the front valance off and probably the exhaust too.


Can't see how the front wheels would clear the arches to be able to turn either.

Yes I know it's a mock up

My car is probably as low as this, if not lower.. and all body work remains attached and unmarked when negotiating speedbumps.

My spinal column however, is in tatters

I love the photoshop version, but it's still not as nice as the 8th gen.

What a worst.
