I could see this working. I've been thinking about gram light 57CR in Milano red, could bring this look together
And I'm considering getting some custom front/rear emblems from carbon sixth element. With a picture of Sir Macdonald himself in the background.

I traded the TYP sport for a TYP si, and now im trying to find the person who had it before me. When I went to buy it the dealer didn't have any mods listed so I went into it thinking it was stock. BOY WAS I WRONG, THIS THING FUCKING RIPS. I just need to find out what all they did to it but I have no idea where to look to find the original owner. Car was purchased in Georgia, but was originally from New York! Now it's almost to Texas in the hands of yours truly. Original owner had 2 accidents in it, one was the left side and the other was front left side.

Pictures?
Under the hood?, behind the lower centre grill?(intercooler?)
I will say that I went from a 2017 LX with the 2.0(same engine at sport) and your car may very well be stock.
The change is pretty great.
Also, I've read a time before on this fourm that a member bought their car used and was pretty sure someone had Tuned the car previously and weather they lost the tuner or it was stolen they were pretty sure the car was Tuned.

I just got back from Georgia after 28 hours of driving in shifts, first thing I did was drop it at firestone so I'll have to get back to you on those pictures. I know it is modded, there is a injen evo1501 on it at the very least. My guy told me he'd let me know about the exhaust when he takes it on the lift. Sounds like my buddies mustang catback system so we shall see. I'm too lazy to check the part no. On the turbo so I will assume it's stock. He also has a clutch master sticker which makes me think he added a performance clutch. If he has the catback exhaust I'll assume it also has the clutch which means I just need a bigger turbo, a supercharger and a prof. Tune and I'll have my dream car. 400 smackers a month for 6 yrs for a car that will last possibly a lifetime. #worth.

My buddy has 190km on his 2017.
Tracked it hard!, 27won w1, flex fuel, hondata, 27won DP, FP and Type r exhaust.
No major issues, other then clutch.
Can only imagine how long these will run if they're not abused lol

It should be pretty obvious if the exhaust is stock or not. I'm confused why you are asking us if the car is stock when it has visible aftermarket parts.

I'm new to cars in general, sold my sorento with 150000 miles for the sport and had HEAVy buyers remorse with the cvt lag so I bit the bullet for the si. Done a lot of research in the past 2 months but I still don't know as much as I would like to. The exhaust is stock (according to my mechanic) but the cabin sound was REALLY loud so I thought it might have a different exhaust. Still don't have pictures because life but so far I'm loving it. Just learned today how to get it from first to second without a ridiculous amount of noise. I'll get back to you all when I know more about the car and the parts on it. I'll post pictures as soon as I get the chance.

Lots of noise in the cabin could be a stiff aftermarket rear motor mount.
Or it could be you are one of the owners who find the cabin noise in this car loud.
I don't mind it personally. But when I'm making/receiving a call others sometimes have a hard time hearing me due to noise.
Either way. I hope the car treats you well!
I'm coming up on 60000km and not had a single issue!
Cheers!
