    HPJ was against it, and Honda agrees with him at the end. ;)

    I'll give it a test drive, but nothing is really screaming "Must upgrade" for me. Possibly the grill?

    Maybe when my shocks finally give out, I'll replace them with these newer ones. Same with steering wheel, etc. But I like my car the way it is.

    The new style fake vents don't look good on the R.

    I hate the flat panel on the front vents, which is completely different from the honeycomb rear vents. What were they thinking?

    Trying to make it more slippery I guess, but I agree, looks terrible, prefer the fake vents

    That part of the bumper hides some of the radar and stuff for the honda sensing. It has to be flat.

    From the show some really sweet new tips for spec-l, damn makes me want to switch from Legamax.

    (I clipped the photos direct from the net, so you don’t have to go through a million photos)

    The current grille is like $120 so i am expecting it to be close to around that price. It also looks like it should bolt right up so hopefully.
    yes! This bothers me so much lol. The diamond shaped vs the honeycombs style. Just doesn't flow well together.
    not a fan of the colored trim on the vents also. Shocks I don't care for since i'll go coilovers eventually. Steering wheel i already have, shifter I already have acuity, and the two piece rotors can be obtained through Gyrodiscs or other brands. Nothing really stands out aside from the Honda sensing which i wouldn't mind on a daily driver (which my CTR isn't) but not worth taking the hit on a trade in for though.

    I’m not sure if the old badges will fit on the new grill, so you may need to add that in.

    Surely not - the OEM '17-'19 rotors are super cheap. If they're anywhere close in price, OEM 2 piece will be way cheaper.

    yeah. From the looks of it though, it seems like it'll fit.

    I was kind of already ready to buy them if needed for the EVS grill so i was kind of already prepared for that lol.

    possibly. Wonder if they last any better than current stock ones. I'm leaning towards the gyrodiscs either way so it's not too big of a deal for me.

    Well there are no cross-drilled holes for cracks to propagate from, so that should help track life of the discs.

    I don't think the current stock ones wear out particularly fast.

    Ohh hadn't seen the knob before, looks nice!

    The bumper vents are weird, love them in some shots, hate them in others. probably never going to bother swapping mine out if I'm honest.

    Interested in pricing for the shift knob, rotors, and grill though.

    so think the car will be heavier than the last ones with the changes? That would mean same power and more weight the car would technically be slower than the 17-19?
