I have had this car for one week and I am very happy with it. I had a very hard time trying to decide between the tC and the 2007 Honda Civic Coupe EX. I think I made the right decision. The tC just seems to have more character and also has more toys than the Civic. Yes, I gave up some gas mileage, but I currently have a short commute and I think it is worth it. If a long commute was an issue I think I could have chosen the Civic and been happy with it as well.
The Flint Mica paint - I LOVE this color - it sparkles like crazy in the sun! The two moonroofs and the iPod stero are great (Honda did not have a smooth iPod integration option). The car has a good solid feel to it, which was a concern of mine coming from a VW to a Japanese brand.
The radio cover is a little odd. Maybe add a rear wiper? Other than that I have no complaints!
