    For example, on EG and EK Civics, OEM bras are pretty expensive because they're very visible and not many people bought them when the cars were new.

    What accessory in the catalog is going to be that for our cars in 2035?

    I guess we'll know the answer for sure in 2035. :cool: My crystal ball is broken, sorry.

    Generally any OEM accessory since those are the first to be discontinued.

    Outside of accessories I would say the seats & maybe a shot in the dark the oem rims why i say rims cuz we dont give a F about them today but 15 yrs from now they will probably be almost gone thats my 2 cents.

    I know ITR bras went for $$$. I haven't kept up prices in a while.

    If you pattern how the OEM accessories of the EF, EG & EK are priced today, i would say every FK8 OEM accessory will be gold in 15-20 years.

    This.

    Although the ITR was made in much smaller numbers, many of them were modded (like the CTR) or stolen. Original seats and wheels are very expensive as a result.

    OEM wheels will be the most "premium" item in 20 years if this car becomes a collectible (unlikely, IMO).

    Collectible, likely, in my opinion a lot of these cars are being ruined by extensive mechanical mods, wrecks, track days, abuse, etc., and it will be discontinued as Honda commits to electric cars. This is going to be the last gas Type R. Wheels, yes, if you can pick up an extra set, or more on the Internet as people foolishly discard them it might be worthwhile. Also, the OEM floor mats with metal logo.

    I actually like my oem wheels better than most aftermarket ones I've seen.

    I agree on a set of mint wheels, and those LED illuminated kit, MISB, 20 years later.
