    Hey everyone, my name is Jimmy. I am a proudly new owner of this 2012 Honda Civic Si sedan in Taffeta White. I haven't done anything on it yet but only got it's windows tinted 25% tints all around - F&R windows. It has also been rust proofed with the platinum package. I pre-ordered it in May at Midtown Honda which is located in Toronto, On Canada. I picked it up on August 10, 2011. Yesterday I did my first oil change after hitting my 1000km break in period, which means I can hit VTEC hard now. Even though I actually hit VTEC just passed 500km to be exact at 660km.

    Here's a picture I took of it from the day after I picked it up. More pictures will be coming as soon as possible when ever I have time to do a photo shoot with my buddies. Sorry for the bad graphics, it's from an iPhone.
