    Type R will not be automatic or DCT. Honda is one of the few car companies that still purposely produces MT cars because of the enthusiast nature. The Civic Si has always come MT, why would Honda change the Type R? :rolleyes1:

    From the camo pictures I think the fake black plastic honeycomb will shrink. The top portion will be replaced by smooth plastic like on the 2019 MDX A-spec.

    Man who would pay ADM on a 2018 given the likely cooling improvements the 2019 models will bring?

    What do you mean? There isn't going to be a 2019 CTR, remember??? ;)

    Seriously. At this point looking for an '18 at MSRP is on hold. It was futile anyway as I was lazy and not interested in looking outside SoCal. Going to just wait to see what is coming for '19.

    I like the front and the rear but would rather it have no spoiler then the one pictured. I don't think its a Type S either its a base model R if anything and then we already have the touring. Hopefully if that's the case the spoilers are optional.

    Personally, I would love an R with the larger wing but without radio or less of a radio, projector headlights, no fogs, no rear wiper and 18 inch wheels instead of the 20's or something along those line would be awesome. I am not too worried about the creature comforts in the Touring and would love to see a Base R that was more along the lines of the JDM R's of the past. Guess we will all find out in a year or so

    You can also buy an OEM grill replacement to fix this issue for ~$100; badged or unbadged.

    110% convinced the Si wing is just to throw everyone off

    I have actually heard the opposite and they going to be making it more of a regular model availability wise with trim levels.

    I don't. I think they will be introducing trim levels

    I have been told That its not going to be limited except for maybe a high trim level. The rest will be available like the Si is.

    Cars are rarely investments. So maybe you just wanted a fun car. If not it was ignorance because this Gen won't be worth anything.

    It could be worth something in twenty years if they discontinue the CTR after this gen. With the success of the CTR, it would be in Honda's best interest to continue selling them in NA next FMC.

    They got rid of the Prelude, Integra, Rsx, Del Sol. Honda doesn't have a sports car in their line up, unless people consider the Civic Si or Accord Coupe one.
