    Yeah but they had to put on 20" wheels with 30 series tires to attain these numbers. I'm waiting to see what happens to performance once people start slapping on 18's as I think it's going to affect the handling and balance of the car. It's performance is special but it's still got the mediocre Civic interior and one of the worst infotainment systems in all of automobiles and it's not pretty to look at. Like the EVO X, STI, Focus RS it's still a flawed car due to the economy car it's based on. Audi RS3 has one of the most brilliant engines in existence but is that a special car? Cars perform so well these days it's hard to separate special from everything else. I think maybe the most special thing about this car is that they attained all that performance without compromising the ride quality of the car which is by most accounts as good as a Golf R. That said you will have a camp of people complaining because of that it's not as raw as previous Type R's.

    It's hard to define speciality I suppose. Hell my '08 civic Si was special compared to its competition.

    Go sit in a type R, you'll see what I mean. The seats are magic.

    I have had zero issues with the infotainment as well. Works great for me, very responsive and intuitive. Voice control has not screwed up on me even once. Android Auto is snappy and lag-free. Calls come in as expected and don't drop. I have actually found it to be quite excellent compared to others I've tried. No issues with multiple phones & bluetooth either. As an added bonus SIRUS XM never cancelled my 3 month trial haha. Google Navigation even works with the dashboard LCD directions and turn countdowns. I have been very pleased with the infotainment, especially for the price.

    Technically it's probably cancelled, but your car isn't on when it got the disconnect signal so it's still working. On my BS, I parked it for the winter when it was scheduled for disconnect, didn't drive it for 6 months, and it never got the disconnect signal. Had free working XM for 4 years.

    Sirius is weird, I was lazy about switching it over when I traded in for my new car. Had it working for a month or so on a free trial so i wasn't that motivated to call them.

    A couple weeks ago I noticed that Sirius had refunded my annual from the last car on the cc statement. Didn't even try to get in touch with me and just gave me my money back lol, that was unexpected... Haven't renewed since, just been streaming on Apple Music since my phone has a real data plan now and I don't think I will be looking back.

    All depends on time of day you're driving and signal comes down. Typically for the first month they're aggressive in sending the kill signal, then tapers off later down the road.

    You can say the same about the seats on almost every second sports car at the moment tho.

    That looks really good actually. Nice work.

    I've seen a white one around. What part of town are you in.

    Looks so good. Congrats again!


    Saw my first one today. Black driving around. Looks like a show car as is. Wide body, huge wheels, huge wing.
    Love it!!

    The black car's drive wheels are closer to the street instead of the garage?

    Man I hope nobody is stupid enough to pay that kind of money as it encourages people to do this type of thing. I like the excuse of the first seller in that he bought something else lol. Just be honest as everyone knows that you are trying to flip a car for profit. Bad thing for him is that he's got to make enough money to cover all the taxes he paid on it so really there's not going to be much money in hit for him if he's even lucky enough to get what he paid OTD. Looks like a used car dealer bought one and is flipping it which is pretty greasy. It's a good car but at $50k is poor value and this first batch of cars has a fair bit of issues in that the engine harnesses likely need to be replaced on most cars and some of the transmissions are grinding gears.

    Second one looks like a dealer... man that annoys me. I see the same shit with some dealerships trying to upsell the ford raptor at 99-105k... meanwhile you can price one out online and get it built by ford for 72+....
