Anyone know if the vents are a direct replacement? I have a 19 CTR and dislike the honeycomb look. The new ones aren't much better but beats drying them with a leaf blower.
I read somewhere the rear vents don't fit due to minor differences. Not sure about the front...

You should be drying your car with a leaf blower anyway if you want avoid paint swirls. Plus it's much quicker if you have a decent blower.

I'm hoping the upgraded rear bushings will fit and the revised front grill for improved cooling.
I'll have to try the leaf blower method. I think my blower puts out 500 CFM that should blow off the bird poop : )

Just heard from my dealership that the new rotors are in the system and retail for ~$500 a piece.
Seems like aftermarket is the way to go...

The question is how much better are they then the single piece? I know a little less fad and lighter?? So maybe just upgrade the pads to the 2020 model??

For non track situations, I would not think there is any reason to go to a 2 piece rotor other than having less rotating mass. That being said, from looking at the new 2020 rotor, I would have thought the Girodisc ones would be lighter. I don't believe either are true floating 2 piece rotors which are the best (but also most expensive) design.

There's no point to a two piece rotor if they don't sell the rings separately. Otherwise, it's a single piece that happens to come apart.

My opinion, they are doing this to reduce stress on the suspension as a whole. Will be taking my car back in for front suspension noises, in less than a month after they (dealership) replaced both front suspension assemblies. It was "normal" for ~20 days, no noise but then came back yesterday (quite/normal, too problem without anything in between). There's something Honda isn't disclosing, I drive my car in the winter and over "normal" roads. 4 strut/spring assemblies now are doing the same thing. Sounds like a jar of marbles up there. And both towers give at the same time, so there's concern about the drive mode system and front load on the suspension.

Won't keep the car after another round of bs. For those that store your car, you may not get these issues until you're out of warranty or they don't care anymore.

I agree. If they give you any more bs next time, you should sell the car. Life’s too short to keep a car that you don’t enjoy.

They are weight on the suspension, it wasn't my point saying rotors cause XYZ. There's an issue with the front suspension and Honda has been replacing assemblies without questions. Replacement's are'nt working either in this case. I personally don't think the active suspension is/was ready for the range of weather conditions people see. My first set and others, went on few miles and under cold weather conditions. My replacement set just went under ~30 days.

What I posted was in correlation to it, reduce weight to help another component last longer. Revised suspension, steering, brakes...just a coincidence in 2020 models. Even then, that won't help as there is something wrong in with the layout of the suspension as a whole if it can't take a little weather.

The new Brembo discs and Girodiscs are both floating 2-piece. Aluminum hat connected to a cast iron rotor via pins with anti rattle spring washers.

Just heard from my dealership that the new rotors are in the system and retail for ~$500 a piece.
Seems like aftermarket is the way to go...
Source/part number? I strongly doubt they would more than triple the cost of rotors for the car. Even very expensive Brembo floating 2-piece discs on high end cars (Gallardo, R8, etc) are cheaper than $500/ea. Maybe $500/pair.

Source: Parts manager at my local dealership.
Parr Number: Don't know but you can call and ask if you want. $500 each is too much imo so I had no interest in asking.

It's possible they are $500 for the pair but that is not what I was told.
