You're meant to be fighting about cup holder cover plastic quality, and whether it should be (1) hard, simple, durable classic Honda 90's stuff, (2) elegant slightly squishy quality Honda '00s stuff or (3) hard, simple, durable, de-contented cheap Honda '10s stuff ;-)
Being semi-serious, not living in NA I have no idea what the interior of a new Civic is like, but it seems to have kicked up one hell of a stink. Is it worse than the old 80s/90's stuff, which as far as I remember wasn't very soft touch ? My car is old, has plastics that would no doubt make a new Civic look like is was hewn from granite, has no cupholders at all (the horror !), but it's a fun drive.
The problem with the new Civic and CRV is that they don't have enough cupholders to hold a take out chinese meal... I mean, a proper chinese meal takes at least six dishes plus rice, huh?
And where do you put the TsingTao and the tea?
Me thinks that AHM thinks that the only worthy "asian" food for their cars is an obento box meal or a plate lunch for L&L BBQ (*), which you can put in your lap and park the Sapporo and Green Tea in the cup holders.
And since the cupholders are small, you're stuck with the small Sapporo which is proper since we'll be eating this meal WHILE PARKED somewhere... so when we driver afterwards we won't be too happy....
(*) Yeah, take that you haoles... Hard to get L&L in most of the country... ;-P
