BMW Civic

Posted on June 11, 2010 by in On the Road

I’ve been driving my e36 BMW around a bit lately, and ended up parking next to a Civic today.  They had similar paint colors, and I realized how close the styling of the two cars are from the rear.  I’m considering debadging the rear of my BMW, since I’m not a huge fan of how pretentious that logo makes me feel.  For years, Honda owners have been replacing their H’s with BMW badges, but I’d do the opposite for my car (if I ended up with any badges at all).  There are a number of technical merits the 325is has, but its reputation isn’t winning me over.

Anyway, I snatched a couple images of the two vehicles, and I’d like to get a side-by-side comparison sometime soon.  If I end up parked next to a Civic again with my camera, I’ll be sure to get some shots.

    Yeah, I have to agree. There was an interesting article on Jalopnik awhile back that broke down what cars shared parts directly that you wouldn't expect. Things like VW tail lights turned sideways to go on Lambo's, it was an interesting read. I'll have to look it up, that's what this makes me think of.
