    A GS-R to ITR isn't as big of a leap as an EX to CTR but I get what you're saying lol

    Yeah, I noticed that too. The orchid white one was the same. I think they take shots of the car once it's dealer prep'd and then they added the "type R" bits and took one shot of each in the showroom.

    Pricing on website seems about normal for a Civic EX Hatch though. Not the markup posted earlier. Maybe dealer got wise and stopped? Or you think they pull the switcharoo on the price in person?

    LOL. This is crazy! From the dealer no less, I could see if it was a private seller or something. Do those caliper covers say CIVIC on them?!

    Maybe someone wants the Type-R aero appearance, but with a CVT option(assuming this model is) and without the CTR engine ??? Although the price is ridiculous, I'm sure someone will still buy it. Ouch!!

    Ford is doing the same shit with Fiestas right now. For MY19, you can get a Fiesta ST-Line with all of the ST appearance bits and none of the gofast.

    I wouldn't mind the Type R engine in a CVT, minus the torque down low but still want the horsepower up high. Say......300hp at 7000rpm (Only 225lb-ft of torque). Yep! And they could keep all the Type R looking cosmetics. :thumbsup:

    To each their own I guess, but I’m sure at least 1 person will buy this special edition trim.

    Keep an eye out on the Facebook groups. They'll post up asking how people like their Type R body kit.

    It's tacky, but to really make this baby complete, it needs a set of Buick Vent-A-Ports on the sides of the hood and a chrome fart can or two (or three?) sticking out the back. This is a new low for dealers :thumbsdown::thumbsdown::fear:

    The Subaru WRX with CVT has 250 lb-ft. Of torque and I think I saw similar ponies. Not saying the Honda and Subby CVT are the same but with stronger internals all around I can’t see why that kinda of numbers could work in a Type R with CVT though I think a DCT would be better. Just my .02 cents.

    You mean I could had one of these instead of my CTR!!
