01-03 vs 04-05

Which model do you guys prefer?

I actually prefer the 01-03 myself, it has that 'civic' look that the previous 2 generations have had.

depends....if your looking for something a little bit stock looking...I'd go for the 04-05. But if you want to deck it out...I'd say the 01-03 since more items are made for those years. Just my opinion. I have an 04 and perosnally think it's better than the 01-03's except the fact that it's had to find as many things for it than the 01-03's.

I agree.

And my car looks almost identical to yours (at least on the outside) plus some 20% all around

in terms of LX, 02 were the best.... white background for speedo and tach, had largest front and rear anti-sway bar stock. 03+ had that arm rest that always gets in the way and they added all this shiney stuff.........

i like the 04-05 because they look similar to the 6th gen accords. The 01-03 civic look like rebadged 6th gen civics.

Polo2k4 will become famous soon enough
Definatly the 04-05, not cuz i have one, honestly at the begining i hated the 01-03 and didnt like the 04-05, i wanted a 6th gen but the dude told me that ill have a new model and less kinks and less problems you get when buying an older car..and he was right. The 04 quickly grew on me, from the way more sexier front headlights, and the hot round reverse lights..and flared bumpers, it was just sleeker(im talking about coupe )

I like the 01 - 03 headlights when they are blacked out. but i love the 04-05 taillights..
because I have an 05, i'd have to go for 04-05 civics.
But 01-03s are still HOT. But i love that shot on my sig of the 05 headlight.! now thats hot!
