is yours an automatic? the automatic adds an extra $1000-something to the price. my manual 2015 was $27k so he did pretty good for his automatic IMO, but it all depends on location as stated previously

It is rare to find a twin 10% below MSRP; sounds like a very good deal. But there is your trade-in and it is always a bargain chip for the dealer. You can assess the value of Civic better. In any case, you bought a very nice car.

The MT fanatics play the same broken record every time AT is mentioned. With the paddles and sequential shifter, AT is at least as much fun, engine runs at lower RPM when cruising on the highway, and gets better mpg.

Enjoy and congratulations!

You must have never learned to heel-and-toe. it's quite satisfying when done right. harmony in motion. if they made guitars with buttons, you autocrats would say "it's at least as much fun and it's easier". yea....but the craft is gone.

Ah, no mine isn't an automatic. It is a Series.Blue however which had a $30k MSRP. I guess maybe they're just a bit more expensive today.

I was probably practicing clutchless shift with manual rev matching when you were in your diapers.

Yeah, that is why paddle shifters are invented. Maybe you can appreciate when you grow up.

Can we avoid this whole Otto vs. Manuel debate again?

I understand that a lot of you chose a tranny based on your preferences but please do not put down others for their choices.

Not a problem if you keep the car. Have not had a problem with my stage 2, 04 WRX and have not had a payment in 8 years. Still going strong too. Hope to do the same with my BRZ.

is it just me that thinks leasing is probably the worst decision you can make? the car is not yours and you're paying monthly for it (and you cannot drive as many miles as you want) until you return it. you don't get any money back as opposed to buying the car then selling it a few years later. even doing monthly payments (as long as you don't have shit credit) seems to be better IMO. I know I got in on a promotion with Subaru when I bought my BRZ and am only paying 0.9% interest rate on my 4 year loan
