Smile Early christmas present

Gone back to the civic, having traded in my 09 Accord tourer 2.2 EX. I have to say that I am really impressed with the new civic.The finish and the ride quality have improved greatly...I went for the 2.2 EX GT with 18 wheels and colour coded trim.....here she is, my early christmas present..

Thanks guys...The pictures don't really do it justis, it's better in the flesh...I agree about the grey at the front and think it would be better colour coded...

Lowered, spacers, a remap, painted callipers, and a new clutch to handle the remap and away you go around a 200bhp 9G you'd be the first and envy of all cause at the moment the only fast 9 Gens are the Btcc ones.

You know it makes sense, and all those mods on my car from the showroom never voided my warranty ever.

Looks cracking mate! I like the 9th gen.

Although there's 18's on it the arches still look massive.

I think so as well looks too much like an insight from the front, might look better black than grey or just colour coded like this one,

Looks very nice mate, 9th gens have grown on me a lot lately after looking at 1 in a showroom and sitting in 1, colour coding the front lowering and some 19s or 20s in gloss black would be on my mod list

Use those alloys for winters and get rages for them for summer.

Great looking car, love then rims got one just up the street white looks amazing in the flesh.

The colour coded front is the way ahead if it was me!
Then again it's another part to get stone chipped-
maybe that's Honda's reasoning lol

Edit.... Carbon wrap the grill and bonnet

I still hope Honda sort the paint chipping or at least wrap the front end in admission of paint quality failure! (quality of paint I define as being fit for purpose, as in not chipping to death from normal road use).

I do like the car in white, grey front or no!
