As the time is passing technology is improving. So, offcourse we can expect a better performance from new civic. But i am not sure about any perfomance upgrades in Pakistani Civic as they have moved from 1999 to 2005; as it was also using the same vtec technology in 99. I will like to learn if there are any performance upgrades in new civic. As far as looks r concerned, i hope evry1 has his own point of view on this but i like new civic much more than the 99.
