  1. officially an type r owner !!!

    From what I can tell, every Civic outside of North America gets them (even the 3-cylinder cars) but none do for North America.
  2. Civic Type R Build and Price now available

    The reds are two different colors. (We also get Milano Red - on the HR-V, for example.) FK2 was Milano Red. FK8 are all Rallye Red. It's funny, even some items in the parts catalog say Brilliant Sporty Blue. But if you look at the paint code - B593M - it's the same as Aegean Blue. So yeah it...
  3. At last, the civic type R goes on sale today June 14!!!

    Okay... how does 2700 this year and 3000 next year add up to "6,000 made for US markets this year"? Sounds to me like there will be 2700 model year and calendar year 2017 CTR, unless anyone has more details.
  4. At last, the civic type R goes on sale today June 14!!!

    Where did you get that number? Automobile Magazine says, "Honda plans to bring 2,700 Type Rs to our shores almost immediately (they’re built in the U.K.), and after that will likely settle at a rate of about 3,000 annually."
  5. Parts for Si and Type-R now on Honda eStore

    It's such a serious safety piece that I personally am not going to literally trust my life and those of my occupants to some guy at a local place to get it right. To pay an extra hundred or so for a factory-made perfect quality OEM piece is worth every penny to me in this situation. (Even more...
  6. Parts for Si and Type-R now on Honda eStore

    Mmmmm, red seat belts. :drool: Looks like $200 (online price) to get the front pair. Another $100 for the rear seats - though on non-Rs you'd still have the center black one. The aluminum hood isn't a bad cost at $360... but then add another $230 for the scoop and drain duct. And then paint. :(...
  7. Civic Si press reviews (dates and links) compilation

    The price difference of 2017 models is $1640. For the GTI that has 5hp more than the Si while weighing 142lbs more. And of course that one doesn't have the Si's LSD. Gotta get the $28,000 GTI for that. Or if you want a sunroof too, that's the $30,890 model. Each has its pros and cons. But we...
  8. Do all trims use same suspension?

    Physically I think the springs are very likely interchangeable. But how ideal they will be, with differences in curb weight and damper specs, is unknown. You could email the company who makes the springs and perhaps they will give you some additional info. Here are the suspension differences in...
  9. Hondapartsnetwork Parts catalog is updated with Civic Si

    Along with the larger size, I like that the Si rotors are also the new "inverted hat" type, with air vents on the outside of the rotor hat. This is the same concept as Mugen's "Active Gate" rotors. Mugen rotors:
  10. Civic owner's guide updated to include Si

    Looking at the parts diagram, it appears the Civic Si has a much more shallow "spare tire pan" than the regular Civics. Presumably this is to make room for the center-mounted mufflers of the Si rather than the outer mufflers on the standard Civic models. Looks like there may not be enough room...
  11. 2017 Civic Type R rated at 22/28/25 MPG

    Because it doesn't? 2017 Civic Type R 6MT - 22/28 - 25 combined 2016 335i xDrive 8AT - 20/30 - 23 combined 2015 335i xDrive 6MT - 20/28 - 23 combined Where do you people come up with this stuff? It takes like 2 minutes to look it up. Also, BMW doesn't make a V6. Also, we're not talking about...
  12. 2017 Civic Type R rated at 22/28/25 MPG

    Where is the logic here? I never understand when people compare an EPA lab rating to what they personally get real-world in a different vehicle. 2015 Civic Si, 205hp - 22/31, 25 combined EPA rating 2017 Civic R, 306hp - 22/28, 25 combined EPA rating So if you're beating the EPA combined rating...
  13. Si Factory Accessories / Performance Parts Released!

    The high performance summer tire has been a $200 option for the 8th and 9th gen Civics, so that figure would be my guess.
  14. Honda Reveals 2017 Civic Si Coupe and Sedan (205 HP / 192 LB-FT)

    The MDX system uses magnetorheological (MR) dampers, which is considered the best of its kind in the industry, used on select Ferrari cars, the Corvette, Audi R8. Description of MR damper: These dampers are built and tuned specifically for the MDX and offer the ability to individually adjust...
  15. Honda Reveals 2017 Civic Si Coupe and Sedan (205 HP / 192 LB-FT)

    Please inform us of the overall performance of this unreleased Si. Forget deflecting... how about people drawing final conclusions about an automobile that doesn't even exist on the road yet? Kind of nuts what many so-called car enthusiasts are doing here. Talking about horsepower as power, but...
  16. 2017 Civic Si press drives in May. Reviews come June 6.

    The model year isn't just applied to cars at will, it is based on the assembly line. Like the CTR, the Si isn't a dedicated chassis but rather based on an existing one already being produced for MY2017. All chassis on that assembly line are stamped with the same VIN digit representing the year...
  17. 2017 Civic Si press drives in May. Reviews come June 6.

    Where are you people coming up with this stuff? How is it delayed? What is drawn out? Honda showed the Si prototype November 2016. They said it would go on sale Spring 2017. It's going to go on sale Spring 2017. Nothing has changed. Nothing is delayed. It has nothing to do with the CTR. It is...
  18. Civic Si 192 LB-FT Torque revealed by Honda email

    Not exactly the big picture, is it? But since you're buying a car based on paper specs, let us know how that +3lb-ft and +200lbs curb weight factors out in the real world...
  19. Rims for you guys with too much money..

    Too much money, you say... It just occurred to me that the front wheels of the NSX are 19x8.5 5x120 55mm offset. (The rear ones are too wide - 20x11.) So I'm thinking you could purchase 4 front NSX wheels and run those on a CTR. That would be a rare sight. Or get the NSX Modulo (Honda...
  20. Officially Revealed: 2017 Honda Civic Type R with 306 hp / 295 lb-ft

    For starters, there isn't just one "carbon fiber" construction like there isn't just one metal construction. You can bend a steel spoon with your hands, but you can't bend a steel beam with your hands. You can crush an aluminum can with your hands, but you can't crush an aluminum bumper beam...
