    Welp.. I've been excited about the Civic Type R ever since a teenager reading the rumors about them possibly coming to the states.

    Ive owned 2 Preludes, a Civic and a Civic SI.

    Been looking and waiting for one to become available locally, and have only come across 2 in Central Florida. One in Ocala, and one currently in Daytona Beach.

    Both, have asked for ridiculous prices. The grey one in Ocala was up to around 49k, and the current one in Daytona (black), the dealership is asking for 25k on top of sticker, plus fees.

    Sooo.. hopefully I can come across one for sticker or just above. I follow so many people on Instagram that have gotten theirs for sticker.. it absolutely sickens me that these places are nearly doubling the price of this car.

    - Pete

    They seem to be selling regularly for MSRP these days. Look beyond Florida, you do not have to pay a markup to get your hands on one right now.

    60k!? Good God.

    I see Holler has one in stock in Orlando. Their website only shows MSRP... not that that's what they're trying to sell it for.

    You may have to expand your search out... going as far as Tampa or Jax.

    I'm originally from central FL too and when looking for old Z cars, I'd have to drive a couple hours to find stuff. It's actually kind of a dead zone for variety. Orlando, Ocala, Tampa/St. Pete, St. Augustine, Jacksonville... You have to hit all the dealers websites.

    Good luck.

    Drive to SC and get this one. How bad do you want one. Certainly worth a day trip. Posted less than 2 hours ago.

    ...I just drove about 600 miles in 8 hours today for my job. I got paid <0.60 a mile for fuel and wear and tear. If I was going to save thousands of dollars to drive a few hours, road trip it is. If you save even just $1000... that'd still be the equivalent of being paid >$100/hour for your time driving. "A dollar saved is a dollar earned".

    Still, I gave you a listing in Orlando... still in central FL you hadn't mentioned. I'd say you're not looking hard enough even locally... to say nothing about w/in a days drive round-trip.

    On my dealer in Orlando the last type R was sold for 5k over, it only lasted 4 hrs in the showroom, I’m sure they could get 10k over if they waited a week or so, as long as the demand is there they will keep selling them over sticker

    You don't drive yourself there unless you go with a buddy. Most everybody is flying to far-away dealerships.

    Theyve been pretty hit and miss here. I got discouraged a while back and just stopped looking for them around here. Then when I started looking again, they have been marked up INSANELY. Ocala had one - asked 15 k over. Orlando had one, was up to 49k as they were taking bids on it and now the one in Daytona who's asking for nearly 60k when all said and done.

    I offered to go 10k over sticker for it, and they laughed at me. smh..

    Just started really looking regularly again, so hopefully I'll get one soon.
