@Civichatch2018 it's alright. I would rate it 6/10 in the snow and 7/10 for overall performance. I expected the tires to perform a little better in the snow. A lot of traction issues for me, not sure if it's the low-end torque that is causing it or cold tires/weather. I am definitely gentle with throttle and sometimes would spin the tires on semi-pack snow under 15mph.
Icic. My initial plan to get snow tires right away was the correct one. Thx bro

First black car. Definitely wasn't my first color choice but, once I saw it in person I was AMAZED by how good it looked. Looking forward to keeping it clean...

Picked up my first Honda last week. First choice was the Modern Steel Metallic until I saw this (recently cleaned) one in person.

I'm jealous that you were able to get the all black interior. I got stuck settling for Ivory/black

I got lucky for sure. I only saw one with the Ivory/Black and I definitely liked it better in person than pictures, though!
There were only 3 in the Minneapolis area when I was looking. You either have to settle somewhat or gamble and wait it out.
I told them I was more than happy to take the black...call me when you get a TypeR!

Loved the Black and wanted the ivory interior,but in hindsight ,wish I had gone with lunar silver. Just can't keep the black looking good for longer than a day :(

Thanks to the advice in this thread and others from forum. I used meguiars detail kit as well as spotless wash. Noticed pollen next day but using the california duster seems to work just fine.

Currently have a red, but it feels a bit juvenile. I love it, but I also really like the black. It's very sleek and professional, while still being beautiful to look at.

Thinking of changing colors with the 2019 refresh. The only thing holding me back is all the horror stories about how hard black paint is to maintain.

Is it really as bad as they claim? Is it a big time investment to keep looking nice?
