click on the link that says "Video Clip: Honda Civic Type R." It will take you to the Honda Video page. Actually, I guess it's not that direct of a link. However, once you're on that page, you should have no problem finding the video to the Honda Civic Type R.
Good luck, and let me know if you have any problems accessing it....
If the Civic Type R were sold in the United States, this topic would matter. I'm sure it is a great car in other countries. But we are never going to see this car in the US. I really do not understand Honda's logic in this decision. Just bring the car to the US and let the people who buy decide.
The previous Civic Type-Rs were all white. This is silver. I'm starting to like it. Too bad we 'll probably never get it here. It is the same body style as the Civic Si though, without the spoilers and side skirts. I 'm sure the body kit will be available for the Si's though..
Not that I am taking offense to comment #41, I just couldn't help but smile as I am a new owner of a 98 Civic DX hatch. Yes, stock the car is cute on a lucky day. But with a modified suspension as well as tire/wheel package and factory front lip, it gets plenty of looks. Besides the uniqueness of the car (in comparison to its more popular coupe counterpart), it is also practical. But no, that is not the reason I bought this car. Right now, I love driving the hell out of it on every backroad I can find, and I relish looking forward to the day I swap a B18C1 (GS-R engine) in. Did I mention it weighs under 2300 lbs? : )
Integra=luxury? I don't know about that but NO! Never would I ever consider stealing someone's hard earned engine for my gain! Yes, sadly it's true that GS-Rs are stolen often because of their valuable engine, drivetrain, suspension, etc., components, but a "swap" refers to purchasing a (hopefully) rightfully obtained engine and drivetrain and exchanging it with your less powerful components. The way that I am making sure that my swap is not illegally obtained is that I am buying it off my friend's 97 GS-R. Sorry for the confusion .
