    I like the big wing. I think it needs to stay. Would like to see Phoenix yellow. I might consider getting it.

    Seems to me that this will be the 1.5T version. Smaller wing and probably why they covered the "H" logos. They will most likely be white and not red.

    Wouldn't that be the new sport hatch released two weeks ago? I cant see anything wearing an R badge with a 1.5T.

    They covered the “H” logo because it’s red, it says Type R right there on the back of the car. Type R = Red badge, cmon man. 1.5T turbo is in my Si. These new Type R will have the same engine as the current Type R 100% guaranteed.

    The black covers on each side of the rear are definately different and an improvement over the fake mesh crap pieces we have jow.

    You would see much negativity about the CTR design on this forum, obviously, but if you read around the internet, it seems a majority of people don't like it, saying it's over the top, childish, etc. Honda knows this, which is why they attempted to make changes, but failed. They either didn't want to spend the money, don't give a shit, or have some really bad designers. The current tall spoiler is too much, which seems to be the main complaint by most, but the one in the OP is way too small, too much like the other Civics, and since there's not much spoiler to draw your eye to, it's now drawn to the fake vent panels. And they failed with those panels. They were bad before, but even worse now. Honda should have even spent the money after the first year (after seeing reviews) to remove them, but they definitely should have with the refresh. Come on, Honda.

    Yep. Spoilers kill lift. Wings create lift. Some people call some spoilers on cars "wings" because they look like wings. Others at least correctly call them "wing style spoilers" (or just spoilers).

    If you don't care about stability, you could remove the spoilers from the CTR and theoretically it would be faster.

    "Most of these things come into effect above 55 or 65 mph."

    I drive at 55 or above all the time. I drive at 70+ all the time. In *gasp* every day driving! And I love how the R feels at all speeds.

    Your statement that the wing is "useless in every day driving" is demonstrably 100% false. It's useless to you because apparently you just sit in traffic all day. Your opinion based on your experience is one thing. If you're driving around below 55 all the time, maybe a golf cart would suit your needs better. I mean, doors are pretty useless in every day driving. They're only good when you're cornering hard enough to throw something out of your car, which wouldn't be all the time. Get some shit brakes, you shouldn't be braking that hard all the time anyways in every day driving. Get the fan delete too, you don't need a fan for half the year so it's pretty useless in every day driving.

    Why don't you paste that Darwin quote on your forehead, might do some good. Posting a generic article about aftermarket spoilers from the equivalent of USA Today...get the fuck out of here.

    From your article by the way - "Factory-installed spoilers on higher-end sports cars are very effective."

    "They only work if they're properly installed, and even then, they only work at speeds of at least 100 km/h or more."

    100kmh is only 62 mph. I don't even know what you're arguing anymore.
