With the new grill arrangement causing much weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth, what would you have done to update the styling of the car?

Bearing in mind that more cooling is needed on the facelifted Civic, how would you go about incorporating this into the new design?

Feel free to post your photoshopped design alternatives here........

Personally I would have left it as is and just used some ducting to pass cool air over the auto box....

I'm just not looking forward to be asked what car I have and then having people say "Oh the ugly one?"...............

Bear in mind that the extra cooling is only necessary for the auto box, so not for the diesel versions. I guess you can guess my line of thought.

Will only auto's get the hideous grill?

But I'm sorry, the more I look at it the more I like it.

If anything, make the holes bigger, but you run the risk of it looking like a Vauxhall.

I find it hard to believe that these holes are needed - I suspect it is simply a styling exercise.

The first one reminds me of the Rover 200 when it first came out before they renamed it to 25.
