    I agree. The rear end of this generation Civic hatchbacks make me want to vomit. I usually do not like the look of huge wings on cars but personally, for me, the current wing helps the looks of the rear end a lot. I can tolerate the big wings on cars only if they add to the performance. A good example would be from the C7 ZR1 or the ZL1 1LE even. I don't really like the looks of the wings but the added benefit overcomes the looks for me.

    Added benefit? You know the type r wing does nothing untill about 90 some miles an hour. Everyday driving its just a big wing.

    Yes. The Type R wing is not on the same level of performance when compared to some other higher tiered cars. When I was speaking about the Type R wing I was trying to be more specific that even though I generally don't like the looks of big wings the Civic hatch needed it desperately to detract for the horrid looks of the rear end. All subjective of course.
    When speaking about big wings in general though, I generally hate the looks of them and they need to add some kind of performance benefit for me to be on board. That's why I used the example of the new ZR1 and ZL1 1LE. I don't like the looks of the wings but the performance they add is awesome therefore I'd be on board. If they got much more ridiculous looking though I don't think I could handle it unless they allowed the cars to fly.

    Jesus. No. Looks awful. What I really hate seeingis when someone takes something like an older base model Civic or Accord and puts something like this on their car.

    Looks like the Civic Si’s wing. Also seems like they’ve remove the red trim on the carbon fibre skirts

    The only thing I’m jealous of would be the 19” sizing. I actually like the look of the 20” just wish they were an inch smaller.

    @everyone in this thread with the "I just want ET60 19" wheels"

    They exist, they have always existed, and will continue to exist. They're the FK2 wheels.

    https://www.tegiwaimports.com/genuine-honda-19-alloy-wheel-black-civic-type-r-fk2-fk8.html

    If you don't like those, get new NSX front wheels. Four NSX Y spoke front wheels are 19x8.5 ET53 iirc.

    Not everyone wants to deal with the hassle of importing them.

    I'm also looking for take-offs to be cheap. Like less than a grand a set cheap.

    FK8 takeoffs aren't that cheap; you're living in dreamland my guy.

    Eh I had a small wing on my RSX. It was cute and dainty lol with the R it's gotta be beastly. The current wing is beastly enough for me. :D

    Well considering Honda now announced their whole 2020 line up except the R. And so far they all have those god awful grill inserts i bet we get those too. I do not think we will see a 19 inch tire. There is a lot of engineering and telemetry and blah blah to change wheel sizes. Its not as simplex as slap a 19 on. Suspention change would need to be made and I don't see that happening at the late end of a model. My money is on vent inserts, maybe improved led headlights and possibilty the wing and in the IS. the driver safety stuff since lane watch is technically in the car already and available in other countries.

    It is literally as simple as "slap x8.5ET60 wheels on with a bigger aspect."
