I like the looks of the 06 to an extent, but that short *** hood and small rear end I dont like. Whole car is just too small compared to the 7th gen. The dash I think everyone has to admit is kickass, and just with the options available in an "economy car" nobody can touch, I mean nav, 190hp (or whatever in the Si), etc. They do add up in price though, now that a loaded coupe can reach over $20k, thats pushing it a bit.

I just bought my 05 a month ago, with the new 06's on the lot. Nobody would even begin to negotiate on the 06 and probably wont for a while yet. Had a great deal on the 05 so I bought that instead. To me the 05 EX SE Coupe is very luxiourious for a civic, Im very pleased with it. I like the agressiveness of the 04-05 front clip too, looks very wide and has a great stance

ok all my bros - I went to the honda dealer here , checked out a new 06 coupe, and even sat in it...here goes...........I like the 7th gen civic better....now I know I went in person...the 8th gen is like a acura, it seems to be more like a luxury car, just not as sporty, looks a little more like a girls car kinda...i just like the 7th coupe I have (the body/frame) more still...what I might have to do, is do a swap with my 7th coupe I love, what can I swap in to get power of Si in my coupe I love and is paid off, yes paid off. So, I gotta stick with my civic. What about an engine swap??

thats because darker colors hide the trim lines of the car. The new civic coupes look boring and sedans look like they were designed for another planet.
