i dont think i would be paying more than i did already for a civic!.. and for the body kit, the car is really low as it is. I already have the spoiler on it, the rims would be the only addition i would do to it.
@ the accord, dont the rims look too small for the car???. just my opinion but the car does look really nice.

There are used Civics available at decent prices- manual as well as Auto ones. I enquired with a few dealers as well as a seller- reason for selling is mostly - upgrade to new Accord or transfer abroad. No one till date has quoted low GC as reason to sell. It may cause some dissatisfaction while owning it but definitely doesnt seem to be a reason to not buy or simply sell.

When I test drove it, I didnt find that problem in normal driving conditions over pretty bad roads. I feel Civic sports would also do pretty well and sell in very decent numbers. Honda cant go wrong with any of its models.

Any idea about the pricing of the new Accord ? The initial reports suggested a figure close to 19L.

Personally I didnt like the headlamp and tailamp shape n style, for me its look more like luxury style rather than sporty style,,,
I think Indian civic rocks...

If you want a proper sporty look, i think the European spec Civic Type S is the best.

Have a look.

The headlights and the grill looks stunning.

Just wondering if they would be tweaking the suspension. We all know about the GC being low. After the kit is added on would it not be pathetic and impractical for our roads?

Dont hit, your head cheer up as you saved lot of money, as engine specification would remain same only body skirting, spoiler and alloys will be extra and ofcourse company fitted will be more expensive
and its not at all sure about its launch

Just got a call from a dealer. Civic Sport will be launched on 11th Aug. The sample car is in showroom and bookings have started.

It is almost of spec of the S model. Priced just under 12 L Ex showroom. Will also have a add on package at 55K which will be body skirting and other things. Car has white alloy wheles.

Will go in evening to see it. Honda gearing up for new Corolla.
