New Hatchback here! LX in Black with a stick (Canadian model)

Love this car. Great to drive, great utility, great looks, Honda has a winner here.

Back in the late 90's I drove a 1991 Civic HB and this new HB is A LOT different. I have a hard time believing it's classified as a compact car, it's quite large but I'm impressed with the roominess and how much I can fit in the back.

It's probably just me, but I see the silhouette of a porsche panamera when looking down the length of the vehicle from either side, back-to-front (ignore the taillights)

Currently blacking out all the chrome accents with Plasti-Dip and hoping to get some nice 18" rims. I'll post some pics soon.

Thanks all and drive safe

Congrats on the new hatchback! And nope, I don't see a porsche panamera at all, maybe in the sedan version of the civic.

I got the sexy blue model. Just got it tinted and bolt on exhaust tips for looks as well.

Sup fellow Canuck, I'm looking forward to some pics of wheels you pick out. Having trouble visualizing a good aftermarket look on the new civic body.

Congrats!

Welcome to the forums and congratulations. You just upped to a hatch that has a quarter-century of improved tech added into it ;)

Definitely in to see the wheel choice as well. Planning on going wide or just a casual 18" setup ?

would be cool to see someone throw on a set of wheels similar to the Spoon SW388's since those were all the rage back it the days with the honda community. For reference:

As nice as Spoon wheels are, they just aren't worth the price IMO. Or I'm just salty cause I can't afford a set of them. :D I can see someone putting them on a Type R or the Si but not on the average Civic.
