...also remeber though that the golf, focus are so bland that they blend in well with other caras, with the civic if there is one on the road then you are very klikely to notice it because it stands out so much.
At then end of the day, its a fantastic car and good value for money, when you compare oth cars for the same price, why wouldnt people choose it? They chosie it for the same reason as us.
I know when I first bought it there was a lot of head turning and compliments, now I think people are used to it.
I haven't seen too many of them over here yet (Espoo and Helsinki area), but I expect them to get more common during the summer, considering the numbers they've been selling. And you're right, civicg, the Honda stands out of the crowd. That's why just seeing two of them can make you think they're everywhere.
I saw a black Civic turn at the Iso Omena ("Big Apple", a local shopping center) intersection yesterday afternoon. The driver was a blonde lady. Suppose it's worth a mention, because the Civics still aren't that common over here yet. At least not in the area I mostly do my business in.
Yeah, you can figure it made me wish I had mine already.
There's a few around here; including 2 others within a few mins of me.
One is identical to mine (in fact I'm quite convinced that it's the model I test drove) and one is a nighthawk black 2.2 with a personalised number plate!
There's also one which is always at Tesco Burnage so I'm guessing a member of staff there and I seem to see an alabaster one everytime I'm in Stockport!
