  1. North Carolina Limited Edition FS on eBay - #231

    Yeah, at this point, one has to be ready to invest a lot of time calling dealers across the country to find asking prices of 10k over. Negotiations down to $50-53k is extremely rare. 45-50 is a golden egg
  2. 2021 Civic Type R LE Transit and Dealer spreadsheet

    I am sure they would like to, but COVID may have put them behind target production numbers. We will all know for certain how many we end up getting by July.
  3. 2021 Civic Type R LE Transit and Dealer spreadsheet

    It appears that the US may not get 600 examples as expected. We are started seeing examples in the 300 range come in, but the Swindon factory is expected to shutdown completely in early July. And maybe Type Rs will be built for the next 45 days.
  4. 2021 Civic Type R LE Transit and Dealer spreadsheet

    5k over is an amazing deal at this point. Even 10k over you have to work hard to find one. Were you on a waiting for a few months with a deposit or did you just secure it? What state is this Mentor Honda?
  5. 2021 Civic Type R LE Transit and Dealer spreadsheet

    some speculation if US will even get 600, due to Swindon being behind in production. Production will stop sometime in May, some believe.

    Anyone know if you can tell the production number by the VIN?
  7. North Carolina Limited Edition FS on eBay - #231

    I would be surprised if this used LE on BaT hits 60k—although is could happen. There’s plenty of new LEs in dealers across the US, which continues to incentivize others to try to buy new. It is snot very difficult to negotiate 10k above MSRP. Anywhere below msrp becomes more of a challenge...
  8. New York Looking for a civic type r in Agen Blue

    I have a lead on an agean blue being traded in the southeast. It only has 900 miles. 2017. PM me and I can get you more details.
  9. 2021 Civic Type R LE Transit and Dealer spreadsheet

    looks like dealers are double dipping on trades-ins for the LE. 1. Low trade valuation plus 2. Outrageous markup. So they wanted a nearly 30k premium to get you into a LE.
  10. Official Phoenix Yellow/Sunshine Yellow Limited Edition Type R Picture Thread

    What kind of work did you do at detailing dynamics? They are top notch. Eddie still there?
  11. 2021 Civic Type R LE Transit and Dealer spreadsheet

    Agree—in my opinion this “Limited Edition” is not worth the hype, the $6000, nor the mark-up for arguably marginal changes (at best) over the standard CTR (Essentially, lighter wheels and updated tuning software for exactly the same suspension components). Whereas, the S2000 CR has some real...

    Did you ever figure this out?
  13. 2018-2019 Fuel Pump Motor Recall

    All, so I got my fuel pump done 5 months ago and I have had no issues— recently I’ve noticed a smell of gas in my garage if I park the car for a few hours with a completely full tank. Then the smell gets worse the longer the car is parked with a full tank. But no smells inside the car. I had...
  14. Oil Leaking Everywhere - Disaster!

    And why are you taking it to another dealer who did not service the car? It’s going to tamper the evidence. Call your home dealer in advance to validate it’s the best course of action.
  15. Oil Leaking Everywhere - Disaster!

    when the oil light goes on, there’s usually already damage. Pull the dipstick and check the oil levels ASAP. Don’t run the engine anymore. Take lots of pictures and you may want to start asking for a new engine from the start. Document everything.
  16. 2021 Civic Type R LE Transit and Dealer spreadsheet

    The direction of this thread is reminiscent of 2007/2008 when Honda announced the S2000 Club Racer—how the car was viewed then and how it’s viewed today. I am thankful Honda is even releasing a LE, as it was certainly not needed to boost FK8 sales. The beauty is that we do not have to buy the...

    Looks very similar to my prep picture I posted here. Nice work. How did it go?
  18. 2018-2019 Fuel Pump Motor Recall

    sorry to hear that. For anyone getting the fuel pump done, I suggest finding out through the dealership who their top tech is and requiring that the work be done by him/her. I actually did this and came to meet the tech before he started to job and showed my appreciation in advance. As I...
  19. WTB: 2017-2019 FK8

    Keep looking and you will find one. It’s a sellers mkt for cars right now, and used CTR values have gone up in the las few months due to limited supply for used cars overall. Adding the limited supply of 2020 CTRs due to the temporary closing/opening of Swindon factory, it’s moving up used...
  20. 2018-2019 Fuel Pump Motor Recall

    Did my fuel pump recall at dealer. I removed the seats myself before taking it in to the dealer. This allowed me to remove and store the seats in a meticulous and calm way and the tech to just focus on the pump during the job. I brought in the car with less than a 1/4 tank of gas. Filled up...
