    this has been the longest running shape without facelift in the history of atlas honda.. i think it would be better if u could wait for a while.. someone was saying it gonna be out in march...
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    If you are not the kind of person who wants to have the newest car in his garage no matter what, then obviously you should wait for the new one. But I would not do it personally. Usually Honda give some nice upgrades after a year or so in its models. So basically, the later year models are expected to be the better ones and in that period you can see what reputation the car is making and what reviews is it getting.

    Re-enforcing what Istafa and Salman said...here's a little advice I gave on another thread a couple of weeks back...(I was in a similar dilemma over a month ago)

    "Throwing my two cents in...my strategy is to get the new shape in around late 2013 or 2014...for one simple reason...the new shape is not getting great reviews. In the US they are planning major mods in late 2012/early 2013 (check the 2012 Civic thread), high probability that 6 months after that Civic might change for the better here as well and it should because normally Honda does follow global alignment unlike Toyota and Suzuki.

    Remember the Thai model Accord...didn't do too well and they brought a shape change early, so atleast I don't want to get stuck with a car which is one of the least liked models of an otherwise popular car. Sure due to corporate policies and low options, civic might still sell here with that shape but I can bet that mods will be on the way max by mid 2013 here.

    And what's to lose, the 8th Gen should not only hold its price but you never know (knowing Pakistan), it might actually appraise in value cause it's no secret now that the 9th gen has an opening control price of 2.2 mill.

    So buddy go for the 8th gen. My advise would be to go for a slightly used 011 or 010..."

    Hope this helps...

    Buddy I was also anxiously waiting for the 9th Generation Civic. Due to recent Floods in Thailand, Honda supplies throughout the world are effected. Honda factory is still under water

    Thai Floods: Honda Under Water

    look at the link above. Atlas Honda , Honda Siel in India has stopped production for the month of December due to Parts shortage.

    Consequently, new releases will be further delayed. There are rumours that 9th generation will be released in December next year. so I have finally decided to go for 8th Generation.

    You got money - around Rs. 2.5 million - you wait. Else buy the current shape.
