A pretty close transition to production! I wish the designers had retained the area around the front grille where the logo edges extend into wings into the headlights. That was a nice distinctive piece of design that appealed to me. The production car's larger headlights appear to be the cause of the design change.

Also, notice how the door mirrors are mounted so far back on the door. Anyone know why? The 9th generation Civic featured a similar arrangement, which is ugly IMO.

I do know that the small fixed window aft of the mirror is needed so that the front windows end at the appropriate place so that the windows can be rolled down into the door. Without the small window, the windows in the doors would be too large to fully roll down.
