Any suggestions on getting paint protection vs yearly detailing?
I did a 1 stage polish and wax done from my detailer upon delivery. I'm still on the fence whether I'm gonna clear bra this car or not. If I do, it'll be 3M Scotchgard Pro- partial or full hood & fenders depending on the price. I won't be putting paint protection on this car- I'd try Cquartz finest if u want the best.

As for tints, I'm also on the fence with. 35% all around for me if I do.

What's a ballpark price for tinting? What's a good way to go about choosing an installer.

Just came back from the dealer, went for a test drive, and was smiling all along... came back to the dealership, put my negotiation hat on... After 20 mins, signed the dotted line for Modern Steel Metallic EX-T :thumbsup:

The negotiations weren't bad at all, as I was prepared on what I wanted... targeting ~1,200 discounts...

Paid MSRP but got ~$1,600 worth of throw-ins (5yr/100k extended warranty, mats, trunk tray, splash guards, wheel locks, alloys for winter tires)

Expecting to pick it up on Saturday or earlier.

Can't wait!!!
Well done! Would you mind naming the dealership? Thx

Spent the last hour with my car in Lake Ontario. Navigation systm cannot find satellites! I have about 500 km on the car. Probably 250 km with the system looking for satellites. To bad because the system is great when its working.

I hope it's just an intermittent connection and the dealer can fix it.

That's what I'm hoping. Haven't heard anyone else with this problem, at least in the 2016

Picked up the car on Saturday morning, and wanted to drive it for a couple of days before I chime in...

Firstly, changed the color to WOP instead of MSM... White is probably (IMO) the best color available to us Canadians!

Drive was great, getting off the traffic lights was quick, turned many eyes! People following too close and driving in the next lane trying to figure out the make/model of the car! It has the look/feel/comfort of the luxury car with an affordable price tag.

Pros:
- Turbo for sure
- Int/Ext Design (much sleeker and nicer than what I expected)
- Sound: Decent
- Seating comfort
- Trunk space is surprisingly spacious
- Touch-screen/console is quite responsive, no lag (so far)

Cons:
- I have to split hairs to find one at the moment...

Managed to get a couple of shots of the car and thrown-in winter rims

CivicNut, the winter rims look great. Much better than steelies.

sure... I'll do one better... ask for Ali Rahbar at Classic Honda, Brampton - if you end up going there. Good luck!
I might! ...but it could be a while from now :-( ....I'm waiting for the Si Coupe, and as you can see elsewhere in this forum, latest believed-reliable speculation is that that won't be available until Fall 2016 earliest, and possibly as late as Spring 2017.

Long wait, but am sure it will be well worth it!

2017 is hard to believe. I would think fall of 2016 would be latest.

Yes recent information about the availability of the 2.0 T Engine and it's expected use in the Si is pointing to a possible June or July 2016 availability for the Si, but of course it is all speculation at this point.

Dealer found antena problem and ordered the part. Advised 3 week wait. Dam after 3-4 days of no life, last night the nav starts working. This morning it grabs satellites immdiately. Not going to say anything to Honda unless it is trouble free for a week or two. Maybe the Honda elves were working Christmas night.
