Hi and welcome to civinfo, you have found the right place to keep you busy until your car arrives.

An essential extra you will need is a civinfo sticker.

Take a look http://www.civinfo.com/forum/site-su...port-site.html

Hi pace!

Welcome to the forum.
Great choice of car!
The blue ambient lighting is a nice extra.
Another suggestion might be the parking sensors, many members on here has added them from the option list. But I think the sensors is standard on the EX versions for MY 2008 on. I've got the reversing cam myself, but it cost considerably more than the sensors of course. But if the EX has factory mounted sat-nav, that would be a useful option. It is worth the money imo, as I find it very useful, I love the fun factor every time I put the gear stick in reverse.

Welcome Pace,

This is a good place to wait!

The EX has a lot of toys as standard, so not sure what else to suggest unless you want to spend money on things like Storm wheels which look great.

The ipod connector does have rather limited functionallity which you should be aware of before it is installed.

Make sure you don´t miss this all the other info in the Wiki, Main Page - Civinfo Wiki

Yes they are standard on an 08 EX.

Thanks to all for the suggestions. I will certainly purchase a civicinfo sticker. Blue ambient lighting,spare wheel, f&r mudflaps are going on the list. I-pod connection or 8 CD needs a little more thought.
FWH thanks for the comment about functionality of I pod connector. Will consult civicinfo Wiki for more info

I'm sure you'll enjoy it, normally after a couple of years I get bored with a car but I can see myself keeping this one for a few more years yet. Just checked my records and I ordered mine on 17/12/2005 and picked it up on 25/01/2006, which seems quite quick.

P.S. What colour have you gone for.

I have gone for Milano Red. I liked the contrast between the colour and the Black pana roof ( which I forgot to mention was ordered with the car ) and dark grey front and rear grilles and side mouldings. Hope I enjoy the car as much as you seem to have enjoyed yours.
