It's not bad... but, the opening is too large. It would need mesh or something to fill it up so it doesn't just look like a giant gaping hole.

Mesh would work also, just to much chrome for me as it sits now.

I actually don't mind the grill at all. I foresee alot of people using plastidip to color it black. I'm holding out hope that the coupe will use the "black chrome" that the new accord coupe has on it's grill and reserve the bright chrome for the sedan. Most likely the Si will have black like the concept car or they'll give it a slightly different grill treatment.

I don't mind the Acura-esque look of the civics grill actually. I know alot of people don't like it, but i really don't think the new civic has that much more chrome than the current car and since acura refined its grill i really don't mind the acura beak either. I think brushed steel look would look better than the chrome though.

The new grille with chrome all blacked out with the Honda badge left normal is the look I will aim for, much like what was seen on the coupe concept:

Mugen fans might be getting something, with how much more sound of a model this is to have such parts for, I bet brands like them will jump at this opportunity.

Yea the chrome bar that goes across the Civic face I think is the worst part of the Civic design. Seeing it blacked out looks so much better. I think they could have done something different with the grille that wouldn't be particularly more expensive, but would have made the vehicle look a whole lot better.
