    I have one! Looked for months before I could get my hands on it and do not regret it one bit. Im a big fan of colors that stand out. However I wish Honda kept the orange. I would have loved one but made the green work.

    too funny!
    Those were my choices as well...a green coupe or blue sedan.
    I just couldn't see myself in a coupe, I think my age is well past that...if it were a 2-door hatchback like old-school Civics, then sure...

    I chose those colors as I want an actual COLOR on a car.
    Everyone gets some form of silver/gray...that is NOT a color, it's a LACK of color! Same with black & white...
    and I just can't do red either, the stigma of the speeding ticket is too great

    could have done the orange as well like someone else said...

    I was the opposite, waited on a white sedan. The red goes so well with it.

    Well, I am 51 and really, it does not bother me one bit. :) I have not owned a 2 door car since 1991 so it is cool to have one again, at least to me.

    I was looking to buy an Energy Green Si a year ago when the new Si came out......normally I would go with Silver, but that green looked pretty sharp on the Coupe Si. But when it came time to pull the trigger.......I ultimately went with Champion White! :dunno:

    I'll be honest, the fact that the car came in that green was one of the main reasons I bought it over the other cars I was considering. Wouldn't have even considered another color. Never saw another on the road since the color came out (only saw one at the dealer the first year of the XGen, but held off for the Si praying they wouldn't drop that color by then). Most dealers around me got only one and most ended up as display models (sadly the reason mine had a gash on the passenger side sill I didn't notice until it was too late). I think it's pretty cool having one of the most common models of car in one of the least common colors. I get more crowds at gas stations and parking lots than any other Civic I've noticed, mostly comments on the color and compliments on how the red accent (lower lip) looks. Besides, that type of green has been my favorite color my whole life and even almost bought a Challenger, which I never even liked as a car, simply because of the color Sublime. I think there are more people that like the color than would actually want to be daring enough to drive it every day. Personally, coming from a person that has had the nickname "Greenman" at work for 11 years, I wouldn't have chosen another color in a million years.

    New York but probably not Western New York, right? I have not seen your car around so I figured that is the case.

    Depends how far west were talking about, but then again it's a big county and unfortunately I haven't been driving my car very much due to a bit of a problem I've been having with the dealer and some issues which has finally been sorted out. I've had the car since December and it only has 500 miles on it.

    Believe me, I've got tons of those. And sneakers to match. Even a green cat carrier. LOL

    I like the color green. This shade is not my style though.

    I think it would be sweet if they put out a British Racing Green in light of the fact that hatches are made in the UK.

    I wanted an Energy Green Si as well. I test drove a white one at the dealer and was eyeing the green. I drove home and there was one at the side of the road. Decided it was an omen and didn't get it.
