When was the last time you saw another Civic Type R on the road...?

Very much a unicorn here in the UK. Only ~3000 registered; I have seen a couple locally but they're not about any more.
Actually encountering one on the road is a 1 / 5000 mile occurance :p (Even driving backwards and forwards past Swindon!)

Yesterday. Beautiful Boost Blue rolled past me in Mason, OH. Other than that, I've only seen one other CBP in town.

I saw two driving in I4 in Orlando my first week. Then none until yesterday... Saw another SGP Civic Sport with the type R wing and a nasty red badge ( think a silhouette off the red H ). Does that count?

I am told there are two others at my gym, but we work out at three different times of the day
I saw a same wannabe in Temecula... SGP Civic Sport with the wing and red badge =)

Seriously peeps... one thing I love about driving this car is that it's very unique. The last time I saw another R was last Wednesday in Temecula Ca... White one. Before this was another white one Saturday night in San Marcos with an Invidia Gemini cat-back. Before this was like months ago... Grey one heading south on I-15. I remember last July I saw a blue one, stopped to talk to the owner... real cool dude, haven't seen him since. I'm sure if I hang out at the E85 pump (only one around unless you drive a ways...) another will eventually show up =)
I’ve had mine (sonic grey pearl) since early November and haven’t seen another one around East Tenn. at all.🤔

I live in the Ohio sticks, kinda close to you. I do drive to Dayton/Columbus/Cincy sometimes. I've only seen 1 CTR in the wild (it was last year). One! That's exactly how many Veloster N's I've seen also. I'm lucky to see an Si a few times a month.

I’m in Orlando and see one maybe once twice a year. Granted I don’t “tour” Orlando but for me they are quite rare.

Wife (not I) saw a black one on the way to the BMW dealership today (first one in 2 weeks)... she said it was going along side around her then exited. She was in an m340i (e30 tuned) =) Picked up a windshield chip picking her up... :( Can't stand these roads here man... it's nearly impossible to avoid a paint chip and or windshield chip... go slow in the far right lane and some redneck with massive tires (usually a Duramax 2500 or Powerstroker) is going 100mph kicking stones up! :/ I try to take the scenic routes to avoid this but sometimes you can't.... Maybe that's why I don't see many R's on the road here... =)

I've seen one other Boost Blue in the wild. I see at least five type Rs in DC/Maryland a month.

I work for a dealer so sometimes I see them. Black one was here a few days ago in service. There's a white one that flies around all the time by my work too. It's not all that frequent, but that's the nice thing about these cars. I get thumbs up by STI drivers all the time. I'm surprised that they respect these cars lol probably don't want the gap :p.

Yeah... this car gets some serious looks from the STi crowd over here :) Went back to pick the wife up... new SGP Accord Sport went by... first time i saw an accord in SGP, plenty of Mustang 5.0's, Chargers, Redneck trucks ;), couple of corvettes, 4 of 5 Volkswagon GTi's, no Z's, Infiniti G35 (lowered), Audi's, BMW 335i's (2 of them... all modified)... STi's, WRX's ... and last but not least... an orange Lambo! =)
