Good deal, I figured it was something simple like that.

Good to hear @Pilksdaniel. HFP packaged suspension is different than stock Si suspension?
I am very happy, im leaving from work to pick up my car in an hour cant wait to see my baby. On the Honda site the HFP says (HFP sport suspension with Adaptive Damper System) and the normal si doesnt have any specification on the suspension. So i beleive that the suspension is different. Also found (The HFP Sport Suspension is fully compatible with the factory Active Damper System. Normal mode toggle provides added comfort and stability while sport mode adds aggressive sport-tuned features. White HFP decal included. Note that this is not a lowering kit. The HFP suspension is designed to enhanced the handling characteristics of the vehicle only.) this written on https://www.collegehillshonda.com/product/08W60-TBF-100.html

I bought the 2018 Si coupe with the HFP package but I got to drive it without HFP for a week before all the parts came in and it feels like the new suspension adds more comfort with sport off than the original suspension and more stiffness in sport mode than the original suspension. The dealership told me it’s the same stuff that the CTR has, maybe the ride in the Si HFP is the same as the CTR comfort setting and the CTR R setting.

I agree with how comfortable the normal mode is, I was quite impressed on the difference between the two modes. You really feel the stiffness in the sports mode. Honestly the car is quite fantasitc.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. As stated above its covered under warranty. Even the most reliable cars can have issues now and then. My guess is it's probably a loose connection, or a bad sensor. Did you happen to have the windows tinted? The ADS module is under the driver's side rear window behind the trim panel. When the windows are tinted, the water used can run down and get into the module causing a failure. This is very rare, but still a possibility, if the windows are tinted that is.
This is exactly what happened to mine. Had to have the ADS module and floor harness replaced. They had to remove everything in the interior to replace the harness under the carpet.

Nice car! I have the same in white. Glad it worked out for you. I have 10k kms on mine in 2 months. I love it. Tomorrow I’ll try to put my winters on. I think the GTA is getting some snow on Sunday.

I don't have the HFP, but have a 2019 Civic SI. I had the same issue and I had my windows tinted the day before. The next day it popped up. Made an appointment with a Honda dealership to take a look. Although cpl days later it went away. Should I still go in and have them look at my car? I'm not sure if it seems the same handling wise the msg hasn't come back don't know if I'm just being paranoid only had the car about a month. Any advice would be appreciated.
