    Default Just picked up my 08 Civic - Canada

    Hi guys,

    So after having bought a 2010 Civic Prosmatic in Karachi last year, I just picked up a 2008 Honda Civic in Canada - same car, little different shape but it runs equally well, and in some ways, far better.

    Here are the pics...just picked her up. She runs like a charm, just 40000kms on her.

    Plan on using this as my commuter car as my BMW is a V6 and kills me on gas...lol.

    Here are the initial pics...will take more once I clean her up a bit and get the transfer of ownership etc done.

    Just picked up my 08 Civic - Canada -285641 Just picked up my 08 Civic - Canada -285642 Just picked up my 08 Civic - Canada -285643 Just picked up my 08 Civic - Canada -285644 Just picked up my 08 Civic - Canada -285645

    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    Thanks guys...Appreciate all the kind words

    The vent is there - as per the last owner her kid cracked it while playing with it so she ordered a new one from the dealer which she gave me with the car. Ill slap it on in a bit - plan on taking it for detailing on the weekend and then will hook it up along with a 12 " JBL sub I have lying around for the sound system.

    The rims here are basically optional - so they`re not hybrid rims - the DX comes with wheel caps and the EX series comes with these rims as an option.

    I plan on slapping on 17"s or 18"s for the summer set and leaving these stock wheels for the winter - and the snow.

    Insurance is expensive in Ontario especially after the govt removed the subsidy -- you have to have third party liability as a minimum but if you have a newer car you should go with comprehensive to protect against theft etc as well.

    Only driven the car about 50 kms so far - waiting to go register it - but its definately got more pull under hard acceleration than the Prosmatic back home. Road noise is also less than the Prosmatic - both are smooth on the highway although the suspension in this car seems a lot more soft than the Civic I have back home. The braking is also a lot stronger and the car feels a little lower to the ground than the Civic back in Karachi as well - I think because of the roads here they tend to lower cars more compared to Pakistan.

    Love the black interior on the car - it goes really well and looks smart! Also seems quite roomy which is nice....and with the tinting, the car looks great - all blacked out on white body.

    ^^

    I dont recommend changing the rims. Stock rims looks good on the car. But your choice obviously

    Whats your license status and for how long are you driving ?
    20$ is pretty reasonable and which city are you in ?

    Congratulations!
    But why the hybrid alloys?
    Your insurance doesn't seem too bad if you don't have a long experience, Mine is 150 Euros a month on Parent's policy.
