    Hello to all here,

    Monday I will be getting an 07 Civic Hybrid and giving up my 00 Accord. The Accord has been a great ride, but the time has come for a change. The Civic feels good and, with the tax incentives, is a great buy. A friend of mine has an 03 Civic Hybrid and loves it. So I feel confident that this will be a great car. I have one question about the car: Can a remote start be installed on it? I read something about the HCH-II starting off the battery pack instead of the 12v battery. Does that complicate things with a remote start? I already had it removed from the Accord so I could put it on the new vehicle, but now I wonder? Any experience with it? Thanks for your help!

    Welcome to the site, suchham! I can't wait to hear how you're doing in your HCH. What color are you getting?

    Can't help you with the remote start, though. I know nothing about stuff like that.

    I think you will enjoy the 2007 Civic.

    "Magnetic Pearl" which is what I would call a charcoal grey, judging from the Civic brochure. The selections on the dealer lots around here were limited. My dealer had one Alabaster Silver, which I test drove, but I liked the darker color better, so they found the MPearl one and swapped them for me. So I haven't actually seen MY car yet-only a photo.

    Magnetic Pearl is a really nice color. When my wife & I were trying to decide between a Prius or HCH, we had a dealer show us a regular Magnetic Pearl Civic just so we could get a good idea of the color.

    I thought it was really sharp, but my wife wasn't too crazy about it. She said it had "too much brown" in it. I have no idea what that means, but you know the old saying ... if momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. :)

    In answer to the remote start question. You shouldn't have a problem. I have one in my 03' civic.

    However, Unless you realy need it I would advise against putting it in. I set up a self imposed rule that I won't use mine unless the temperature drops below 20. It realy hurts your fuel economy with that extra fuel being burned when you aren't moving.

    Hi Sucham, welcome and I'm sure you'll enjoy your car--the mag pearl is a beautiful color too. Be sure to share your thoughts and any questions with us after you get it.

    Proco I think they must have shown you the Galaxy Gray, as that IS the "brown-est" gray I've ever seen. I didn't find it appealing either. The mag pearl is an almost gunmetal charcoal gray.

    You're right! It was the Galaxy Gray. The mag pearl is the one I test drove. What was I thinking?? [​IMG]

    Thanks for the correction!! :)
