    Default Civic Reborn, a bit confused

    I am planning to buy Civic Reborn 2008 prosmetic, but a bit confused whether to go for Oriel or not. Oriel costs around 40-50k higher. But I have heard that it has a good resale compared to plain Prosmetic. Is it true? And also advise the colour though my personal choice is black.

    There was never a difference of 100cc between VTi and Orial. VTi aur VTi orial dono he 1.6 rahi hain before launching of 1.8 civic (atleast in pakistan, baki dunya ka pata nahin)

    Both VTi and VTi Oriel of the current generation Civic have Hydraulic Power Steering, not EPS.

    Great! First an Axle problem and now sunroof leakage...!

    100 out of 105 people buy Oriel especially when getting a used one.

    Additional features of Oriel:

    1)Alloys
    2)OEM Fog lamps
    3)Improved Sound System
    4)Airbags
    5)6 Illumination lights
    6)Sunroof/moon roof
    7)Seat height adjuster
    8)Side mirror indicators
    9)Electrically reactable Side Mirrors
    10)Keyless remote entry

    So the choice is yours but it is wise to spend 50-60K more for Oriel. You'll face no problems in selling your car again. Most of the clients turn their back while walking towards your car as the discover it to be non-oriel.

In CF5 model, Civic Oriel was a 100 cc higher than the VTi (1500cc vs 1600cc). Now there's no difference between iVTEC & Oriel drives. The difference remains ornamental (or musical, if you count the 10-CD changer). So suit yourself. I gave up on black (& all dark) colours years ago when I found out how tough it was to maintain them.
    Sir g, in CF case, Civic oriel and simple vti has the same 1600cc engines (D16). Infact EXI is 1500cc.

    My honest opinion, go for ORIAL!!!
    +1.

    @OP,
    it's not only about the addition of sunroof in oriel u get whole lot of other features too plus it would always be called a Top of the Line model and around 95% of 8th gen. civics i see are Oriels
    VTEC did not kicked in ooooo
