I spotted several whilst at Honda last week, mostly in polished metal and they certainly look much better in the flesh than pictures. The quality of the car is at visual level, 10 times that of the current 8th Gen. It certainly is something that grows on you. I also saw one of the US civics which in comparison, should have had a VW badge on it it was that bland.A silver 9th Gen on the M4. Certainly had presence.
