Well, after 78,000 miles in my 08 2.2 Type S GT I have finely got a new civic.
another 2.2 but only a ES now, in Polished Metal.
1st review since I got it? I miss the 3 door version :-( but as they dont do them anymore, not much I can say.
I personal think the inertia is better, the noise level has decreased a lot, the drives not as precise as my old Type S, but that may be down to lower suspension it had, but its still good.
I hadn't realized how much headroom has been lost in the back till I picked up some friends, one is 6' 3" he had to swap with the wife and sit in the front!!
having a decent iPod interface is great :)

I have only done 50 miles so far, so will post more comments as I get use to it.

Best colour mate, still not sure about the 9 gen will be interested in your forthcoming reviews.

Looks like your wheel arches are the same colour as the car!
I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
I certainly am.

alwaysblack, yes the wheel arches are the same colour, the only black external trim is on the front, the top and bottom Grill and the number plate panel.
I think it blends well not having black arches.

400 miles now, no problems and loving it :)

It is just the light. The arches are the same plastic ones on all models and colours, they just blend in better with the polished metal colour. It is the reason why we also went for polsihed metal.
