No, you'd get what you'd ordered.
Civic is a bit max power. 147 is the pick of the bunch other than on power. JTS engine 165 bhp would go a long way in addressing this issue, but 180 would definately swing it.
Re. the MINI, I don't think it is feminine, more cheeky. It's appeal will suit male and female alike, black or white, gay or straight. In fact it has a certain 'gay' appeal (not to me mind!). The Civic is definately a male car, aggressive and butch in a Jap Max Power way!
