    It's much better looking to the American Civic.

    Though with the coupes dimension, it looks decent.

    Honda's coupes are nicely designed. The sedans, not so much. At least here in the US. The new Accord coupe for the US.

    BTW, congrats on the new car.

    I prefer Mazda 3 over Civic any day. Reason? Better bang for your buck in every aspect.

    ah forgot to mention .. this is a middle east honda civic...the US accord coupe looks just like the one we got here...i wish my dad -and i- had enough money for it ... but i guess the cvic can do just well after doing some mods in the next couple years =)

    thanks for your replay! :D

    That is a very american looking drive way.

    That is your first car :eek:

    What is the insurance like on that thing.

    On my 1985 Vauxhall Nova 1.2 Merit which cost £450 the insurance was £1501.02. Even after I did pass plus it only went down to £1207.42.

    Just because you have a car that can drive fast doesn't mean you have the skill to drive fast.

    For now ... It is the most you can do "safely" at any point. Seriously it is a very bad habit to get into going above 75, I have been driving for 5+ years and the one thing I have learnt above all is you can never account for all the idiots out there, but you can take measures so you can have the time and space to avoid them.

    To answer your original question the car looks pretty nice and it being a Honda then it will last.

    I've grown tired of the chore of owning a car over the years, my first one was stolen, then my second one has been vandalised many time, most recently about 3 weeks ago someone tried to steal it and smashed the window and bet a bit of the door. I'd sell the dam thing if it wasn't very useful in carting stuff too and from Uni. I want to get a motorbike but at the moment do not have the time or the money to get lessons.

    Sorry to hear about your brother but if that isn't the best personl advert not to speed I don't know what is.

    Yes you need another license because you have to prove that you can rid the bike safely and legally just like a car. Although if you have a bike license you can actually drive a reliant robin, it doesn't have reverse gear.

    The hatchback is cool but the black bar across the rear windscreen is very annoying and if i owned it would piss me no end.

    its a Mid east sedan .. we dont have the hatchback civic here... but googled it..i think i cant live without the sexy back lights on my civic lol


    its ok , i try my best to avoid speeding ..once i see a car really speeding from far back..i just go to the right side.. is that a good "method" you think ?!

    what happened with my brother is that he didnt let the car behind him go even after flashing lights.... =\

    here you dont need this kinda of license ..i can drive a motobike with my current license ..

    i wish someone would post a pic of a 2007/2008 hatchback to see what it looks like ..

    i'm confused, I always thought you were a Brit (must have misinterpreted something a long time ago and never bothered to question it).

    I think that it is rather silly to let anyone out on a bike as they are completely different to cars and respond very different. The hazards are a whole lot more and the skill level is so much higher.

    Civics drive like a dream, but as for speed... Hm, I guess I am just really American there...:D

    Pretty car though. Congrats!

    You can see what I mean about the rear "spoiler" though. It really does hamper the rear view.

    I think the civic is a great car. I'm not really into the whole econobox thing, I guess its the New Englander in me but if I was to buy one that would definitely be towards the top if not my top. I've driven both a Civic and a Corolla and I absolutely hated the Corolla.

    If only they could make 4cyl engines sound better. I hate that weak groaning noise they make.

    My 2000 Civic is almost 8 years old and it still drives great. With over 160k miles on it I've had to replace the tires and brakes a few times, but other than that I've had no problems with it. I am considering the Mazda 6 for my next car, though. Not sure that I like the body style of the newest Civics...
