So no change to the Type S? Plus its a bit too early for a face lift on the Type R.

What company do you work for?

Can you imagine the uproar from current owners if Honda decided it needed an LSD? I'd be furious.

I think if is it true then honda tries to make the eudm ctr (fn2) comparable to the jdm ctr (fd2).

still very unusual for Honda to face lift the Type R right now. It almost sounds like the FN2 bound for Japan, but we'll wait and see.

Well new bumpers, grill, lights would be a face lift. But the question is, is it to the whole Civic Range?

Now we all know Hondas logic when it comes to things so will white be a CTR colour or for everything but that, my money is on everything else knowing some of the things they have done. That would be a truly Honda thing to do.

I'd rather wait to see what changes are made but you do realise that all this talk could put buyers off in the hope that they are getting some super dooper CTR in white. I can see people cancelling orders on the off chance this is going to happen then if it doesn't they may have changed their mind about the car or can't get a car in time for when they require it. Sad but true!
