In the factory, but it's not the same color like car. It is only covered by painting, in older civic in Poland the plastic wasn't painting [ my dealer say ].
Yes, my civic is 09 model. Here you have some photo:

So on yours that could be classed as colour coded as it matches the rest

Pottsy It does look like they have been a bit cheap with the photos. The finish looks similar to the old one, until you get up close:

770HP Yeah, I know...
the financial crisis and all of that, I guess

Yes, all the others in the gallery section are correct, the one I posted actually comes from the Wallpaper section.
It is the exact same picture referring to the 08 model that you find in other sites.
I think I now understand what they've done: they "photoshopped" it adding wheels and changing the colour... (same angle, same pic!)
but why?

No - it is just a styling thing I would say.

The S & R still have the diamonds.

Probably one of the many things being done to differentiate the 5 doors and S.

Kremmen I don't know whether it's an optical illusion but the door mirrors don't seem to stick out as much - almost no wider than the wheel arches.

I wonder whether they changed the rear plastic because when you wash the car the diamonds are little buckets?

The reversing clear plastic is wider and the high level brake light looks wider?

Orschild It could be "printed" before all changes were final, couldn't it?

770HP yap. they are indeed....

with this new model, it's a Sherlock Holmes' job !!
20th December 2008 22:44
FWH Interesting...

Those are 09 wheels, I think.

Probably an 08 car dressed up as an 09 and they hoped no-one would notice.
