    Hey guys! Long time member here, haven't posted in a while though. I decided to pull the trigger on a Hypersonic Red / Harvest Beige Gen.IV!! I can't tell you guys how excited I am. I feel kind of bad for trading in my 2015 with only 14,000 miles but I'm getting a great deal, and my payment is only going up by $8 a month (yay for 0% for 72 months!) while insurance is strangely going down by $0.50 cents a month.

    I live in Wheeling, WV and am buying it in Columbus, OH. Salesman says it should have arrived today, and if not today, then tomorrow.

    I was indecisive with paint color, trying to pick between Sea Glass which is what I have now on my 2015, and Hypersonic Red. I picked red, and I'm hoping its of decent quality. Also hoping it doesn't get burning hot in the summer sun, but I read somewhere that red isn't as bad as black. I had a red Honda Insight that showed swirl marks like crazy even though I was obsessive over the paint. However the insight had terrible quality paint. It chipped and peeled from just looking at it.

    Not a single thing my salesperson told me turned out to be true, good luck.
    And congrats, but, what model?

    Good choice man and you will love it! (y)
    I have both my Gen 3 and 2016 sitting in my garage, and I will always prefer to drive the 2016. :D

    Also, I think that red is a beautiful color, but I would have to say the beige is my least favorite. Not that I couldn't get used to it, but is there a special reason you picked it? Maybe due to not being as hot in the summer or something?

    Also, which package/model did you get? I would highly recommend one of the cupholder phone mounts for carrying your phone in the car. I don't like laying mine on the charger tray or putting it in the armrest.

    Best of luck, and pictures when you get it! :)

    That was my choice=Red then Sea second.

    None with everything so I got a white and a silver.

    Have seen several older reds in the parking lot and the paint job looks fine. Just 2001 it every 6 months.
    Beige interior looks nice BTW.

    It's a package 2, and I like the beige because it's a nice two-tone, and it's also nice that it's cooler in the summer. It's just a cozy color, especially in winter when it's cold, gray, and gloomy.

    Check this out... While at the coffee shop yesterday editing logs on my laptop, I noticed people walking by my car kept staring and checking it out. I did some major creeping and took some photos of random people checking her out!
