    I feel the same way, the only think I would add to that list is the LED headlights. Canada has them but the US doesn't. Bummer

    I don't find it sounds different, even if it does I wouldn't brag about it lol It's just a 2.0NA with 148HP afterall. The muffler design actually bulky and kinda hangs out the right side of rear bumper... The Si has a better enclosure around the exhaust port and makes it looks more "built in" uniformly with the body.

    I much prefer the center exhaust of the hatchback sport though.

    I've always thought the outlet on the sedan Sport model looks like it hangs too low. I wish Honda would integrate them better. The hatch Sport exhaust would have been nice on the sedan IMO.

    A single side exit exhaust cutout would've been fine that exhaust looks like an after thought

    I actually like the chrome. It’s not too much, just enough. I have never jumped on board with the blacked out grille and blacked out rims look. I like the sleek look. I like how the chrome grille flows with the chrome trim on the doors. That’s why I got the rims to go with it. It’s a sophisticated look lol.A4A5DB98-ED56-4719-94D7-2A6B78E08E14.jpeg

    That’s what I’m talking about lol. These cars don’t need much to look good. Just a set of rims and tinted windows completes it. Looks good! I see that black grille lol. I feel ya to. Sleek with a touch of sport on the front.

    I am happy it doesn't have Honda Sensing. I hate nannies with a passion. The system is also a nightmare up here in the winter, so 6 months of the year it doesn't work.

    I agree with you... mostly. On darker cars like yours and my Cosmic Blue, the contrasting chrome works well. I think the black grille looks dull on the darker colors. But the black does give a sporty look and looks good on light colored cars.

    It's sort of the same with black wheels. I think they look like crap on dark colors but on white or silver they look good.

    The above was just my opinion. It really boils down to personal taste.

    Yes I agree it boils down to personal taste. I also agree about contrast. Like my girlfriends hatchback is the light silver and has the black grille and black rims. It has good contrast. She like that sporty look while I like more of the sleek look. I told her to pick whatever she wants. But we are both happy with our cars. Here are both of them in the garage. Both of them need a car wash bad lol30171FDA-6E19-4A04-8055-A726681ECDBD.jpeg

    Yeah, I’ve read elsewhere that it can sometimes be either hypersensitive or unresponsive.
