    Literally every dealer in SoCal is asking $3k-$10k markup.

    I even called a dealer who was selling the car with a wrap on it... what the?

    Started emailing SoCal and AZ dealers last Thursday, got my CW the next day for MSRP plus $1000 for Theft Patrol, Permaplate and tint (none of which I wanted, unfortunately). Honda of the Desert. Similar to some other owners here, figured just pay the $1000 instead of having it shipped and dealing with all the other stuff.

    I would absolutely not pay more than $1000 markup for this. Be patient, keep emailing dealers and wait for a price range you're comfortable paying.

    This dealership is supposedly known for having a no-haggle, fair price upfront style of selling cars.
    LOL

    I've said it before and I'll say it again... Honda of Seattle sells anywhere from 5k - 15k over MSRP depending on color, and people BUY from them with the ADM. They will not haggle, and they think it's a fair price (while being indignant about it).

    "MAKET ADJUSTMENT" - wow. $25k premium and they can't even spell "market" correctly

    Ive started looking around for a used Type R and the '17s and 18's are going for original MSRP +$5k. Should we start adding these dealers to the list?

    Personally I think We should stick with New Cars for the list.

    But paying over the msrp for a used car is nuts.

    Disagree. The car shouldn't lose it's value that much especially for the TypeR

    I’m not talking about losing “value” but paying over msrp for a used type r is just not feasible. Why would anyone in their right mind pay over msrp for a used type r when they can find one at msrp.

    It depends on how "used" the car is. If the dealer is selling for over MSRP for a brand new one ($5k-$15k), and there is a used one that has 1k miles on it for MSRP at the same dealer, why not? You are saving money.

    Now if you say you can find a TypeR for MSRP anywhere in the states so why buy a used one for MSRP, then yea, I agree with you. The question will boil down to how far do they have to travel to get one for MSRP. Is it worth the $1k to get it shipped from another state? Maybe.. or maybe not.

    Ok. There are so many people complaining about the ADM. Has anyone thought that this car is too low for MSRP. Honda will not continue to release these to the U.S. indefinitely. With the plant closing in UK, they will not be able to produce them past 2020. Their goals are set on electric vehicles for the 11th generation. So this is possibly the last year of the TypeR as we know it. 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020. Done. Look at the Integra TypeR. That wasn't made several years in a row. They stopped that production too.

    I guess what I'm saying is - maybe the car is literally worth the $42-$48k the dealers are asking for.

    Drove 30 mins to get mine as Msrp in NY. It just takes looking around.

    It's not worth what the dealers are asking. It's a very special Civic, but it's still a Civic underneath it all.

    Also, the UK plant is closing after this generation is done, sometime after 2021. Production of the next-gen Type-R would be moved to the US afterwards.

    What does "it's still a Civic underneath" mean? That it's made of less quality? It's not a good car? By your reasoning, I should say "My EVO isn't worth it's resale value because afterall it's still a Lancer underneath.." That's silly.

    This generation is done after model year 2020. You aren't going to see 10th gen TypeRs in 2021 that have the same chassis as what we have now (i.e. they already mentioned next gen would be hybrid electric tech). If they move construction to the US, they still have to build it up from scratch. You think that doesn't take any time at all?

    Presumably at Honda's PMC where they already make the NSX and the global source of the K20C1. I'd say those boys know something about building fast cars.
