Well, you could be right about the prices not coming down to invoice within the first six months, especially for the SI.
Question, when are you planning to by anyway? The Si doesn't hit showrooms until after the Selma Autoshow I don't think. You are aware that it won't be out in Sept when the regular Civics get here, right?
So you might be better off getting something else if you are in a hurry. Because it won't be here until Dec.
I have been on Edmunds.com since July of 1999 (Under the name Ella4), and I have personally watched consumer reaction and prices for the latest and greatest of the Top 3 Japanese class.
I can almost guarantee you that you'll be able to get a Civic for about $300-$500 over invoice within the first two months. Same things happened with the current Civic, current Accord and other cars.
Civics are good cars, but they don't command the same type of pricing that they did back in the 80s and early 90s because people know they have more choices today. And has BAD as Honda wants this new Civic, I think they'll play their cards right and offer good deals on it.
The previous 1999 Honda Odyssey went for MSRP all the way up to MY2003. However, with competition from Toyota with the Sienna, you can get a new Odyssey for about $500 over invoice or less.
If you look hard enough and maybe go to a large Honda dealership in a major city, you'll be able to get a GREAT deal, especially on regular Civics.
The Si though, might take a while. Since it won't be here until Nov/Dec of this year.
But regardless, good luck.

hi guys, this one's a bit off topic but what do u think of the current Civic Coupe's body styling? IMO it looks amazing. The redesigning of the front with the new feline-like headlights gives the current civic coupe a nice nice look. The new tailights with the clear circle is defintely cool too. From the side, it reminds me of a MB CL500 or something. Add some EX 15" rims and the 04-05 coupe looks outtta this world. I got mine about a week ago cause i wasnt happy with the looks of the 06 coupe....whaddya guys think??

I think you should post in the appropriate thread.

At first I wasn't impressed with the '06 Civic's looks either, but as I see more spy shots with different angles, I am warming up to the styling of both the coupe and the sedan, plus the great new tech they both will offer. I'll reserve final judgement when I get to see the car in person.
I agree though that the 7th gen's MMC resulted in a pretty nice looking car, I didn't like the look of the first few years of the 7th gen as much.

current civic coupe looks great for sure. But I think the 06 looks better, especially the back and profile which is more slick. The current coupe is very similar to the current sedan but with only 2 doors. The new coupe is completely different. Basically the new coupe looks (=copied) like a scion tC.

looks nice to me. I'm kinda sad that it doesn't have the Double Wishbones that my Civic has, and it costs more nowadays too.
Plus they took away the Remote Keyless Entry and the Power Locks on the Value Package. What's with that?
I will always like Hondas. My 1997 Accord was still very smooth and strong even approaching 100,000 miles, and my Civic, which I plan to drive indefinitely, has 97,000 miles on the odometer and still feels brand new.
Will the 8th generation Civic get a Value Package model straight from launch? Honda, in the 6th and 7th generation, has waited until the MMC to unleash the Value Package.
Since Honda wants to position the Value Package as the base model, why not just dump the non-airconditioned DX and rename the Value Package as the DX?

thx for ur opinions guys : )
#608 of 4597 I'm a fan of the current Civic Coupe.

I always thought it looked really nice. Had a long and low look to it compared to the sedan IMO.
But I like the 6th gen, so far, better.
I really like how the Spy shot SIlver EX model looks (minus the body-kit).
