They got the dashboard right. The FK8 dashboard layout is horrific. Big props for the physical buttons too. Not a fan of the rear wing at all, looks like an ebay special. But if I didn't have an FK8, I'd definitely be interested in this

Glad it exists and the improvements look great but Fk8 for life. Swinging for the fences styling > boring compromise

So far the proportions of the car look off in pictures for me. Specifically the front looks weird and long while the side profile kind of resembles a CUV. However, if it looks good in person I will likely trade my FK8 that's low miles and paid off for an FL5. I'd like to think dealers would entertain a trade-in that I'm offering with no MSRP. I intend to return to the dealer I purchased the FK8 at.

Not enough change to warrant a new purchase. I am happy that they will continue selling this in the west. Engine parts should still be plentiful for a while since the still build the motor in Ohio.

Honda has definitely improved upon various annoyances with the FK8 version. However, the fact that they only pushed an additional 9 HP out does not make me at all think of trading my FK8. In fact, I have a feeling with that disappointment the originals to the US will still rise in value even with the addition of the new changes, especially due to its unique look.

Stock v stock. I’d take that R+ gauge cluster. Those wheels/tires and that’s about it. I’m just happy there’s a next gen. I knew we had good sales from the FK8 but I wouldn’t have been surprised if they cut US markets again.

Completely agree. It 💯 needs to be color matched. That would help a ton. At this point, the black CTR looks the best.
