    I do find it a bit odd they still put in a 12-speaker sound system and apple/android play. I remember when Type R meant "barely any sound deadening" let alone comforts.

    Even a 6 or 4 speaker would have been just fine. That would be a couple extra lbs off, and being track focused it wouldn't be hard to explain why its not 12. Hell my Altima only has 6, and at most 9 in the upgrade system, and its not race focused at all.

    Wing and Side Mirrors look to be gloss black - not CF. I'm fine with that.

    One question, @Administrator, are they actually letting people get up in the car (when the show opens?) or is it just open today for press? I'd like to take off next Wednesday and come down to see it, but I don't want to come all that way (3.5hr train ride) just to look at it from the outside...

    After looking at the pics of this car over and over, I just don't feel excited anymore...maybe a test drive could change that :drive:

    Honestly I find everything that Honda is doing, odd at this point.

    In the Si threads people are saying "If you want a hardcore race car, then go with a Type R!!" when people mention the lack of power in the Si. The Type R is just as (if not more) feature rich as the Si, which is fine by me since I would make the CTR a DD; but the CTR is nowhere near the hardcore nature that people are saying...maybe in "+R" mode but there is literally a Comfort mode here in a supposed dedicated track car.

    The way they option their models, especially among different markets (ie: Sport Touring as CVT only in the US) continues to baffle me.

    I completely agree.
    This has a lot of potential, but needs significant component deletion to really be a 'race car.'
    Hopefully there are some options even though we know there won't be anything beyond the Touring line.

    If you haven't been following along this type of stuff starts a firestorm on this board with people wishing/hoping/finding it odd it had this option or lacks that option.

    Cant we just be happy we are getting this one? I am...

    Just feels like they are making the R less race focused and more Boy Racer focused. The Si is less Boy Racer and more "sporty family mover".
