I quite applaud the fact the Civic's front end is love it or hate it. I actually like it myself.
Well, actually, I only like it in black. The chrome bar is too much for me.
And so I said to the dealer, ok so how do you get the black parts on the Civic? and he said, well, either you buy an RS, which is basically the VTi-L with leather seats and fancy trimmings and a useless wing and different alloys, which will cost you an extra 4500AUD on top... or you can get the VTi-L with the "Black Pack". So I was all like black pack? What's that involve? It's 300 bucks for the B pillar, 800 bucks for the front bar, 450 bucks for the rear lip and 600 bucks for the spoiler.... basically the entire thing would have cost 3000AUD for purely cosmetic changes and I was like fuuuuuuuck what is this who would be stupid enough to buy a fake RS anyway and then by next month I realised that at least half the new Civics I saw on the road were RS
