Red 9G with Blade Alloys

Hi,

So I just popped into blade Gloucester to book my 8G in for some warrenty work and saw this parked up



They also had the 9G in white, silver and black!!

Tbh Im not overly keen on the other 9Gs i have seen, but in red with the blade alloys I think I looks quite good lol

Just thought I would share

Cheers Dave

I thought all the 9th gens had grey wheel arches.

Are the higher specs colour coded then?

Glass roof and 17" wheels, that's the EX-GT

Presumably the rear wheels were bounced up the kerb?

I was thinking the same thing, thought they would save the colour coding until the face lift versions.

Thanks for the photo, doesn't look too bad from that angle. Colour coded trims and the wheels help it. Still not my cup of tea in overall looks though.

Why do Honda bother with plastic trim when the car looks so much better colour-coded ?

Saw one of these for the first time on the road today. It was white. This car can be made to look quite nice in pictures. I was really unimpressed and uninspired when seeing this on the road. It doesn't stand-out.
It just looks dull. Whereas the 8gen looks great, and with a bit of modifying, you can make it look stunning, which will turn heads. But this, will never be a car people will look at.
