@arkhitekt bro, don't worry about other people, what they think, what they say, when you do get your car please do post pics and most of all share the driving experience , good or bad in comparison to old civic. I for one, would love to have to your take on the car once you get it, as I don't see too many people posting about the driving experience of 1.8 CVT. Don't deprive many for the sake of few :-). By the way when are you suppose to get your car and what color did you get it in??? I am also interested in @arkhan323 review. I though he would have gotten his car by now.
