i am calgarian, looking into buying a CRZ, not sure what to expect for price and stuff
Hi. Welcome

I paid full pop when i purchased the car in Sept. Just under $25K. Free floor matts..typically you should get a ninumum 15% off any accessories you want to purchase also

i like th car. It handles well in dry/wet and snow conditions - with winter tires. It is quick enough for passing on the highway and plenty quick for city driving. seats are comfortable, stereo is great and plenty of storage for grocery shopping and overnight trips, 3 medium sized travel bags. The car is accesorrized very well. I would have liked to have satilite and rear wiper for the lower portion of the hatch.

I purchased from Okotoks Honda from Majed Larbe. I dealt with him for years at Honda West. I real good guy.

when did u get it? the best they are willing to do for me right now is 300$ off, which seems like nothing. One of my main concerns is the 2012, if it comes out loaded or a SI, or even type R. I cant seem to decide, but i know i want a CRZ no matter what though. What colour is yours? i am looking at the white one.

i got the car late sept..the car is north shore blue..there is a new prelude type honda coming out late 12 or early 13 and it looks really sharp! so not sure how radical honda will want the crz to be... Maybe hold out a bit longer? i know i will have the crz for a long while..really is a fun car to drive.

sweet, what have u done to it?
if all goes well, i will probably have mine by late spring, early summer
I did the front splitter, rear difuser, limo tint with just a slighly lighter tint on the door windows, 17" HPF wheels with 215/45/17 ZR bfg sport tires...i will pick up the K&N Cold Air intake and AJ's TIR S51 muffler/b pipe and test pipe when they are ready...i am still looking for a decent rear spolier and will put on a Siebon CF MG when it is ready..That will do it...

also, how much did u pay for 5 window tint? i am probably going to get mine done asap. trying to find a place that has pretty good deals.
Hi...good deal on your CRZ!

I get my cars done at shawdow tint.. Experts at what they do! I have never being disapointed with their work. All the high end dealers use shadow tint too. I have done over 20 vehicles there in the last 10 years and have never been disapointed. Currently i run 7 vehicles.

I think it was somewhere around $350.00 A heads up on the lower back window. While it appears black from the outside, it does let in a lot of light when cars pull up behind you. I didn't tint this portion, but i plan to get it done at the first opportunity.

-20 or more i plug in...although during the day when it is that cold i do not. the car wo'nt let you start it when it is that cold if you are in gear..put it in neutral, turn the key, count to 3 and i guarntee you it will start every time! i run winters...the car is a slalom hog in the winter with snows..it plows, lift off the gas and it swings into line...so much fun! run a v rated winter tire though or you will miss out on the fun..

Heya,

Picked up my CRZ from Calgary Honda last week :) have loved every minute of it since.

Are you pulled over alot for your window tint on your side windows? I'm thinking of doing a lighter tint on the sides. But just don't know how light to go without being harassed by local law enforcement.

North shore blue..nice! Auto or 6spd? The CRZ is really a ggood car...i enjoy it more every day..i am in the Okotoks area often, but live in the west of Calgary.

cars in calgary

i have just seen a white one once. I know there is a silver auto on the west side near me purchased from Honda west..

not sure how well they are selling in canada...i know of one dealer that "secured" a few in September and is still sitting on a couple. Honda west still has one from September too

not selling as well as the fit did, that's for sure!

I am still really enjoying the car...just waiting for K&N to release the air intake..should be any day.
