  • New Type-R

    My mate picked up his new car last week! Sold his Astra Vxr and bought the new Civic Type R. Must admit it does look the business!!! He went for the 19" wheel option (£950) Bit Pricy but look far better than the standard wheels. Went for the car more for its looks than performance.[img][/img]

              It is a nice looking car, the rear looks like theres `too much happening` though.

                  i think this should of been the type-s and turbo/supercharged engined type-r.
                  i loved the old one(until i drove it ) and feel they have done what vw did to the gti from mk 2 onwards,made it fat and slower for some reason

                    I love the look of the new type r, I was gonna wait for one myself but thought it would have had a turbo, when I found out it didn't I went off the idea. It's a very good looking car, but the engine is lacking.... Hope your mate likes it, looks wicked on the picture.

                      looks a bit like a mouse, pointy front end and roundy at the rear.also the the fogs look like the exhausts, but i do like them wheels.
