    I just traded in my 2018 Honda Civic Si Coupe, for a 2019 Honda Civic Type R!!! I’m so happy!! Straight from the Showroom floor to my Garage!!

    I know there’s a thread already about this but what are you’re main observations so far about that comparison?

    Also, I like the pic of the paperwork room with the R visible next door... I’d have had trouble conversing if that had been me!

    Hahaha, it was hard to stop staring at the car while I was signing paperwork.
    But the differences I’ve noticed just from driving it home:
    1: seats are more comfortable in the type r (I don’t know if that’s what they were going for lol)
    2: the instrument display has a yellow top line, instead of white in the si.
    3: clutch is harder and engagement is a lot sooner
    4: road noise is ALOT louder in the type r
    5: no blind spot camera
    6: no heated seats
    7: love the new volume knob!!!
    8: gear indicator in the type r
    9: shifter engages smoother
    10: the type r feels more planted to the ground
    11: miss having a sunroof

    I have more but the list would be very long. And these are just what I think so far, comparing the two

    I miss my sun roof too. Don’t miss the heated seats. You’ll discover more. It’s a lot of fun comparing. Road noise...sigh. I’m working on that.

    Congrats. Welcome to the red type r brotherhood. I am sure that you will love it and will likely notice that there are not many of us out there in the wild. I have yet to see another one in person myself.

    Congrats! I am getting mine next month and I am still torn between white and red. I was driving a couple of weeks ago and stopped a guy who had a red one and asked if I could check it out Car looks amazing in red (Guy was super nice about letting some weirdo in a Golf R check his car out too)
