    30k MSRP for a base model plus 10k ADM lol.

    ADM hasn’t even died yet. I think supply has to catch up with demand first before Honda starts selling different trims.

    We've been forecasting a base Type R for the last four months, based on Honda's VIN assignments.

    Wouldn't be surprised one bit.

    just sent to a friend with a white typeR, he is royally pissed off now he got his CW for 15k adm on initial release.... Honda needs to address this issue where they can satisfy demand and at the same time not piss off the customers who payed ADM, will be interesting to see how they play their cards.

    The first sentence of the article is already a lie. The American model is not "fully equipped." It lacks many features found in the standard model available in every other country.

    Smaller wheels. If not that at least then why bother?

    Honda’s upcoming base Civic Type R be even less costly? With all-season tires, an absent rear wing, bare bones audio, regular Civic seats, and basic HVAC, a $29,995 MSRP ($30,870 with fees) seems plausible.

    This type of thinking is already implemented in the LX version of the Hatch. It's just a continuation now of the higher trim Civic. Ofcourse it can work to some degree but it's an absolute homerun on the base 1.5T LX trim! And they come with or without Sensing so I like the flexibility with this line of thinking and like I said, you're seeing it working with the LX and EXs.
