Hello fellow members, I'm Mikkie Reci, only 20 years old haha. Just got my Crystal Black Civic Coupe LX yesterday. So happy about it, I've been waiting more than 2 months. I was suppose to get white, but my car got delayed in customs in Canada. I couldn't wait anymore so I accepted a black one instead. I'm a little sad because it's such a high maintenance color. But I'm a little OCD and a clean freak so I'm sure I can keep up with the car cleaning stuff. I've only been driving stick for like 24hours and I can drive normally but I have a problem with reverse. I think I'm riding the clutch a little bit to control speed. Is this normal? Anyways, everyone's cars are so awesome on here and we should have more SoCal meets!

OMG WINNN, I wanted my car to be just like yours! Your car was my inspiration for getting a Civic Coupe in white, I saw a photo of your car somewhere and I finally found you here on 9thGen like 2 months ago haha. Been waiting to say what's up!!! :icon_wave:

Welcome to the site and congrats on a fine car. I love black but have been known to be a bit biased on the color.

About that reverse thing. Try to just engage to get moving and then depress the pedal fully when needed to modulate the speed. I try to be either on or off the clutch while in reverse and have done this for decades now with no issues. Honda clutches seem to last forever on my cars.

Enjoy the site and your new ride.
