THANKS a lot all you guys for such prompt suggestions, i think the inclination is for misty violet.can u imagine today morning me and my wife discussed the color again and lo we went out on a ride to look for any civic on road with our color choice ,we saw a misty violet civic ,we stopped and admired it ,clicked its pics to discuss with our kids and made up our mind for the color , till in the eveninfg we saw a silver civic and again we got into thinking ???????????/ silver looked BIG in comparison to misty violet!!!!!!!!.any way its gonna be misty violet or silver NOW and me being defence officer (a) wont sell the car (so not looking for resale value going down due color)and (b) getting it around 2 lakhs cheaper OTR due savings on taxes through canteen. so guys I GO FOR IT ? ,WAT U GUYS SAY ?, ANY MAJOR DRAW BACKS EXCEPT GC? thanks once again

People have raised concerns about paint jobs. I am sure Honda service center will stock paint of this color.

Great advice man . But do consider maintenance and resale value for that color.

Honda always revives the misty violet ever once in a while. Last i saw it on the OHC Vtec a few years back and was smitten! But i did not see too many of them , maybe it was for a limited time.
I suggest you go for the violet since its a new color and only available on the 1.8V which makes it a little less common!

I know the car you are talking about....the one kitted with a body kit right? That was a custom paint job.

the 1st link is a black civic the 2nd one is the misty civic ..yeah the colours are pretty close under poor lighting but in the day time you can make it out easly ..i prefer the misty though. black does not do justice to the car unless you have a nice body kit on the car ...please don't get offended any one its just my opinion!

Take the Alabaster Silver. It looks big, looks classy. If you are a defence personnel and in a position of command you should pick a colour which shows class. If however you want to be a rebel pick the misty violet. Its got youthfullness written all over it.

The silver is very easy on maintenance, even if you get a scratch (hopefully not) it will not be that visible. Even dirt is not obvious. The cars shines in the sunlight and with black sunfilm looks really cool.

I dont think anyone else can show you the way to a "better" colour. Just like we cant tell you what to eat for dinner.
i'll stick to what gto said. color of your car is your personal choice. listen to your heart rather than what others say or else you'll regret later.

if you ask me, i'll take the nighthawk black civic anyday.

Sahil - The OHC was never sold in Violet. Dark Blue yes, but no Violet.
