Honda Civic Type R

Thinking of selling my M235i for one of these. Looks pretty sweet.



Not huge on FWD but for this I'd make an exception.

I am thinking about this car too because I am tired of paying Ferrari prices for maintaining my BMW and that's DURING warranty (Basically I got badly ripped off on clutch replacement which turned me off any "premium" german cars).

I appreciate Civic's practicality and 4-doors but I hate this car's gaudy boy-racer looks so I hope it will be available in dark metallic. Also the engine sound and power-delivery are rough compared to BMW. Still worth to buy this little Honda mostly because unlike BMW Canada there is no extortion racket operating behind the brand.

Excellent performance with non existent understeer is impressive but that boy racer look!

I haven't read any of the reviews on Type R, but I thought I read a Honda rep say the Type R suspension was too harsh as a daily driver ?

Must say the amazing thing about the 235 is it's great adaptive suspension.

Thought has crossed my mind about a type-r

Thing is a beast but Belgium nailed it. It's way too rice. Being 38 I'm way too old for toys like that.

Is that for a 13 year old? That is a bit too young for a driver's license.

Starting to watch some YouTube videos, wow this thing is a beast and good value. I saw a review where the car had a spoiler delete and it makes it look more tame. Not sure if that is an option, or just a test mule.

I test drove sti and it was a disappointment mostly due to terribly laggy engine which meant I was either stalling or leaving skid marks at the lights. It felt quite slow too for the same reason.

I'd take an M235 over this any day. But then again, maybe I'm biased towards BMW
