Newbie help please - '08 or wait?
Hi everyone. I signed up recently as this forum has been a brilliant find in researching my possible Civic purchase. Having tried an A3, a 118d, and decided Focus too common, I borrowed 2.2 EX for a weekend without expecting to be impressed (especialy having seen the recent What Car mag comparison).
Not only did I get on really well with it but wife, step daughter and her boyfriend all loved it - even the dog enjoyed the huge boot!
So the question is - do I order a 2008 model (just Blueish, Silver and Galaxy Grey left if I want leather too) or wait for the 2009?
I don't mind the new nostrils too much, though only have your great pics to go on. And I like the idea of the auto-dipping mirror and the other minor enhancements. Would probably go for the 09 EX GT, as fancy all the toys. It's my first company car for about 10 years.
Can get an 08 by mid-Jan (though the supplying dealer was too mean to throw in the mirror as an extra). Or maybe get a spanking new MY09 on an 09 plate in March. What would you do?
Happy Christmas to all, and thanks for a fantastic forum.
