Hi all,

Another new (soon to be) Civic owner. I'm from the Netherlands and I have ordered my Civic, 1.8 comfort 4 weeks ago.
They say it will be deliverd the second week of april.

I chose the standard 1.8 because of my budget. I was going to buy the 1.4 sport, but wanted to testdrive both cars. So after doing that, I switched to the 1.8
It was a choice between "looks" and "performance" in my opinion. And I can upgrade with nicer wheels and pedals in the future.

Color; I'm dutch, so.........Night Hawk Black

Great forum, have read a lot interesting info!

Welcome Mie!

Black is the current dutch color numero uno. It's the replacement of silver. In about 5 years all the dealerships will be having used cars in the colors black, black and black too... same as silver is now. Got 15 used cars here... 12 of them silver...

NHB does look nice on the civ doesn't it...

Did like the deep bronze too but not for sale in NL
Type S and Type R prices are available and we can finally order the cars as well now.. (15-2-3007)

Yes, I've noticed that black is the dutch color. In the past I've always loved silver, but in the showroom I saw a silver Civic and I didn't like it that much.

I see you say "we can finally order", are you working at a Honda dealer?

Hi There Mie and welcome! I'm from Amsterdam and I picked up my baby on Jan. 19th. I also had to choose between the 1.4 and the 1.8, but I went with the 1.4 Sport with 17" rimms, blue LED's and the triangular exhaust. Perhaps you can guess which color I went with ;) .

Can I ask when you ordered it?

It's really hard to wait this long for mine. Weeks are passing sooooo slow!

Hi Mie! I ordered mine in November and they said that I could probably pick up my Civ at the end of Feb. But they called me at the end of December and told me that they could deliver a month earlier. So maybe you'll get lucky and they just might call you to pick it up earlier. Which city are you from?

I'm from Amsterdam.....I already called them to give them my new phone number and I also asked about my delivery date.
I was hoping for a miracle :)

But the dealer told me the second week of april, so that's exactly the 12 weeks he gave me when I bought it.
But.....when I asked him if it was likely to have a delay, he told me he expected my Civic to maybe arrive earlier, not later (but that could have been a blabla talk).
