hummm something's off. Why cover all the honda Hs and the civic name but not the type R? Plus it does not have the normal shipping stuff on it. I would say this is probably a test car the one from Nurburgring. But seeing how that looks to be a netherlands plate on the tow truck and a test car not certified for road driving would be towed to and from a site? But towed to and from where? I guess it is transported from swindon to nuremberg by way of the netherlands? when you look at a map would make sense.

I will say if they come out with that wing my wing is gone. I have never been a fan of that giant wing. Although it looks like it would mount different.

seems legit. Also those wheels dont look like the 20"s we have.

The only thing I like are the smaller wheels. I'm curious what the performance difference is on this model?

The wheels look different than the ones on the car testing at the ring. I wonder if this is the rumored lower spec model.

That small wing and smaller wheels will instantly go out of stock as soon as they’re made available on the parts system. Order early is the key. Between trading in or just get these parts, a no-brainer. dam you Honda.

I don't like the rear-end of the Civic Hatches, but the wing 'filled in' the slope I didn't like. But... totally my own opinion! I'm glad there will be something for everyone, although I'm curious if that's a cheaper model and possibly had some performance stuff removed...

I was torn on the black waffle panel swap, and now I realize I really don't like the new ones. Looks oddly out of place, although again, that's my opinion.
