Back in 2018, my gf (now wife) and i leased a white Civic hatch LX. My BIL and his son had gotten the Sport model and always loved the options better. In total our family owned 5 white 10th gen Civic hatches

Fast forward to last week, we get a call from the dealer we purchased this car from and they offered to buy out the lease and get into a new one. After shopping around i got a much better lease price with zero down (just like we did our old one) but with much better options

Below are pics of our new 2021 Civic Sport in Sonic Grey pearl which was always my favorite color. Swapped all the lights to LED and installed red paddle extensions. Have new sidemarkers coming in the mail

And just to compare the LX vs Sport....options aside.....the handling is so much better without the 16s and god awful Hankook Kinesis that came on the LX. I’m not a Continental tire fan, but the Sport 18s w the Conti’s is 100xs better.

As far as braking, one thing i did notice is the LX has much more responsive (almost too touchy) of a feel esp if you weren’t used to it. The Sport has a pedal feel I’m used to....which can only mean they used diff pads on them. The harder the pedal, the stronger the bite.

Great colour. I love your Beemers too. Strangely I see more E30's on the road these days than E46's.

100%! I agree, same can be said in the NYC area. The E46 & E30 have def outlived the mid-late 2000 BMWs as well!

wanted to spice up the interior without going overboard....and put these rings from Amazon. The rear tweeters were shaped slightly different than the fronts, so i had to add an additional layer of 3m tape.
Love the look....
