Got to say I'm loving the Civic so far, My only gripe is I'm getting quite a bit of noise from the rear suspension when I go around roundabouts and over some speed humps. I'll have to take it back into Honda see if I can get this sorted under the warranty. Apart from that it's all good and loving the fuel economy (Especially coming from a heavy 3.0 litre BMW).
As for the colour coding it's defo on the to do list but haven't got the funds right now.
Cheers. I'm going for the subtle look(sort off) so I want to keep the badge black but it might be nice to get the black enamel(if that's what they're made off?) badge. Planning to de-badge the back of the car as well (the Type S and Civic badges)
