I bought this color for my wife and she is absolutely thrilled. You would think I got her a Ferrari. Every single person that has seen it loves it.
I have an observation to see if anyone else has noticed. The front side grill on the driver's side is covered while the passenger's side is not. I thought either the panel on the passenger side was missing or the driver's side should be removed. However, the picture on the Honda Civic site (http://automobiles.honda.com/civic-sedan/) shows it on the blue car. I posted on this thread because the pictures seem to show the same on this car.

Has anyone else noticed this? I don't find it to be an issue but I am not used to the front or rear sides on a car to be different.

Last time I saw this was on a Focus RS because the intercooler was too efficient, they had to cover up part of the air intake grille with a blanking plate. Maybe Honda had the same problem here.

Or it could be some sort of aesthetics thing.

I got this car for my wife, but im soo hook. I love it.. jus got some new wheels.
Is there a race to the car every morning to see who gets it? :D

Finally someone here got a set of aftermarket wheels on the Civic.

Those look like Volk wheels, or are they the knock off version?
What size are they and did you have to use a hub ring or did they fit on perfectly?

Have you considered switching the the chrome bar on the grille to black? I find with the wheels being black, the bar would be better in black and then the emblem and door trim would be chrome. It would make more sense to me because then black would be a more emphasized color while the chrome would be like a third color in the palette.

Just my 2 cents. :D

that might contribute to too much black going on. i actually like the bit of chrome going on with the grille and side window trim.
if the wheels weren't also black and red, going with blacked out trim would be my recommendation. Sometimes you need something to break up the tones.

Just install some led headlights and fogs
They look great, the crystal white light really helps its overall look much more than anything else. Glad it was a shade lower making it yellowish or a shade higher bringing it closer to a hint of blue.
