I like my 2012 ex rear better over all than anything else.... but, that's because I like the less is cleaner look.No offence but that kind of looks like the designer just forgot to stop drawing lol. I don't mind the si spoiler because I don't notice it. When I was in the market for my 2013 civic I wanted a coupe and the new sedans awful tail lights solidified that for me? Anyone find the 2012s looked much better in the back then the 2013?
As a old guy myself, I feel I'm pulling from the mid 1950's though the 2000's, of all the upgrades of a model I've seen them, as they go though their stages, and(it's like what the Ricer's do), they start adding crap to the model, till there isn't anything else they can add, so they change the model, and the beat goes on.
So what I liked about the 2012 Coupe EX, is a classic look of the European style cars which I've been starved from, for so many years, before America finally found a market that would get away from boats, tanks, and big muscle cars.(got'a remember, I was bitten by the small sport car bug in the late 60's after living in England for 3 years, and being involved with their racing scène while being there, I fell in love with the 4 banger sports cars). So the 2012 had reached the limit of that model before they'd go to the add on phase, And I just like it smoother.
I don't want 4 doors either.... But, it doesn't mean I don't like the looks/ability of them, and can't appreciate why other ppl would like them, if we didn't like all these different looks, there would only be one look for all you communist......
