i went and saw the new civic tonight in boston
they had a blue si and a beige sedan
The sedan had led tails, the si did not.
The interior is exactly like the beige spy photo, jus the si had a 6speed in its place.and the si has all black interior.
seats on si have red si stiching on them.
no ignition button on either models.
no climate control on passengers door.
Basically the si has none of the cool features that the euro model got..
the cool thing on the nav models is the nav flips out then up, to reveal the cd player, and "pc card slot".
the new spelling of the word civic has a backwards c at the end.
the si had a pretty big exhaust, but when they moved the car it was still very quiet.
sedan had a lil pipe like the current civic.
to get a good idea of the looks of the si, look at the maroon spy photo, it looks exactly like that- to the T

the sedan looks exactly like this photo

Just remove the tape on both models and u are looking at the exact cars i saw tonight.
they wouldnt allow photos.
i recieved a free ipod case, that says civic the new way they spell it with the backwards c.
and thats about it.
Car is ok, in my opion it looks alot like the ion.
It didnt have any cool features that make it "futuristic" except for nav wit the "pc card slot"
and the gap on the si between the wheel and the car is still way to big, about a inch higher then the concept.
Also the spoiler on the Si that comes stock needs to go, the car would look alot cleaner without it.
Same spoiler as the maroon spy photo.

guys sorry i dont know what auto ac is.
they wouldnt let me get inside, just stick my head in and look around.
is auto ac like detect the temp and automatically turn the ac on?
If it is, i doubt it has it, i could be wrong though..
That seems to high tec for the civics i saw...
Bet the euro model got that tho...
As far as leather.
Both cars i saw had cloth.
The si's interior was nice, black CLOTH sorta with the texture of the celicas,
the sedan didnt have nav, so im not sure if it was a ex(my guess is it wasnt)
it also had beige CLOTH...
To sum the car up, they were both nice civics, i loved the leds on the sedan(dunno why the high end si doesnt have led)
but basically when the concept was introduced, it said it was gonna be ahead of its time, and bla bla.
Its not.
Its a nice looking civic with standard features that all cars have.
Id love to get my hands on the euro model.
It was funny after i left the unveiling(wich was outside)
i was driving by in MY 04 accord coupe wit nav.
and one of the people working for the civic unveiling was like.
"hey thats a real nice honda, comeon u know u wanna get out and see this"
I then held the ipod case he had jus given me 5 mins earlier out the window, and hes like. "ohh snap i got u.. i got u.. haha"
it was funny.
My accords dope, just wish i got a 6 speed when i bought it.

Hi Deez!

Thanks for the write up! That's nice!! :thumb:

I'd like to go see it in Chicago-I live close enough to do that. But, my work schedule won't allow it. :(

rims were the exact ones on the spy photos of the si,they look like the 7gen 6speed accord rims...
the sedan had the same ones in the spy photos as well,
I cant stress to u guys how much the spy photos is the exact same car that is coming out.
All u need to see is the inside and u know exactly how its going to look.

Yo DeezV604, thanks for da info. Honda really killed my dreams. I'm probably not gonna get the car at all. I am gonna w8 4 da 250HP Scion tC, which is supposed to come out next year.

Honda had to kill it. If they had their euro version interior, I would have bought it. They lost a customer!

Good info DeezV604...

too much like an ion, like you won't be getting it, bad?

Also about the spoiler, are you just not a spoiler person...or is it just that one that sucks?

davydany, i hear u on the 250hp tc, if it comes out it will be sick, i think it will be a bigger version- size of accord coupe or something- not a compact.
scion knows whats up, all they need to do is make more HP and they're str8
What eva happened to the superchargered tc that was supposed to come out?!?!?

And FuturesiOwner,
reason i say it looks like a ion is 2 reasons.
1. when me and my girl walked up to the car, her first words were "is that a newer ion or something??"
lol!
and
2. looking at the way the tail lights are shaped and headlights, it resembles a ion alot.

as far as spoilers go, i like the lip spoiler spy photo i saw.
but the spoiler the si is getting is like the One the TC has, in my opion it just doesnt look right.
they shoulda put a spoiler like the rsx or something...

I hear ya about the tail lights, I've caught myself looking at an ion going down the street going "Hey is that the new civic??...damn...nope...Ion again"

Man, I can't wait for the 250hp to come out...literally, I dont want to wait...

are you talking about this one, cause the other rsx spoiler is real tall...

I'm pretty sure TRD (Toyota Racing Development) makes a supercharger for the tc.

It's 3-4 freakin' thousand!!! So for (17K plus 4=21k tC) or an SI...for ???

Thanks!

I don't really know that much about the tc, but it sounds like if you were to add the supercharger, it would be about the same as the 06 Si in price and power.

True again...BUT...visit some tC forums...I've kinda talked myself out of a tC due to the reoccurring problems with rattles and squeaks and "cheapness"...
I forgot how durable my Honda is...

and to me...I'd rather have durable and fuel efficient...than anything else...
Because with speed, style, or luxury- there's always a G35, Lexus, Porsche or Ferrari right around the corner in this town...they'll always win...

and besides...if I buy a Honda, I'll have more money to spend on women...

"You drive a Honda?...Aww, is that necklace for me??"

(I don't know what's more high maintenance around here, the cars or the women) :) heh

FutureSi-

You're right! Honda has an excellent reputation for being durable and reliable. I couldn't agree with you more!! :thumb:

They also hold their resale value extremely well!

...I'm hoping that's true...I find out...soon... :eek:hnoes:
dood, unless buying a si as soon as they come out gets u a chance on getting one that was assembled in japan(wich i doubt)
i wouldnt be the first person in line to buy the new si... wait like 6 months if u can...
wait a year actually if u could...
that way they can work out some of the first year problems/recalls

i know being the first person in the town to have a brand new car is phat.
but the amount of problems people deal with when they buy first yr productions. really really sux
even when it comes to hondas.
example.
first yr 7gen accord owners
first yr rsx owners
first yr tsx owners
the majority of the time its little stupid things, like wiring or sqeaks/squeals
or stupid faulty interior things. it just sux bringing in your brand new car for fixing recalls every month.
