    Hello 9th Gen!

    Hey everyone,

    Just got a fresh 2012 Civic Coupe EX-L w/Navi! The color is Polished Metal Metallic with gray leather inside. I must say, I'm already loving my Civic.

    Check out the pic to see my old ride compared to the new one. Side-by-side comparison from the front.

    Glad to be a part of the community!

    Welcome to the 9th!
    the front does look a little sportier on the 9th vs the 8th. minus the white plastic covered hood lol

    and mods planned? be sure to take care of that leather too!

    I've got to agree with you Talon. The 9th Gen is definitely sportier looking. I think the white plastic adds some pop to the car, lol.

    As far as mods, the first thing I'll be doing is tinting the windows. I'm going to see if they will put a strip of tint at the top of the windshield as well.

    The leather is very nice and comfortable. I'll have to do some research on how to maintain leather, since I've never had leather in a car before.

    seems like most people here are going with a 35% tint and there shouldnt e a issue doing a tint visor either....i have one on my car and love it!

    as for the leather, its pretty simple, you just need a good leather conditioner. im sure you seen car's that have cracked and ripped leather after years of use, its looks all dry and rotted. thats becuase leather dry's out and you have to keep it conditioned, especially in places like texas where it gets really hot! I condition the leather in my Raptor about once a month or so......you should really check out this thread here

    Thanks Talon! I can't wait to get the windows tinted. I won't feel so exposed when I'm driving down the road, lol.

    Thanks for the leather tips! It get furiously hot here in Houston/Katy. I'll be sure to stock up on leather conditioner.

    Thanks for the welcome T Virus and creation!
