I was just thinking that! The reason i got a car like this so that its perfect straight out. The suspension setup is utter perfection there is no way i will be doing anything to that. As for tinted window i will give it a miss.

Also if it were any lower then i would be going nowhere with speed bumps, i may have a problem as it is!

Yep black is defo IMO. I was so unsure from other pics, but then i saw it sitting in the garage waiting 4me (which was the 1st time i saw a NHB) and it was defo love at first sight! lol I will be taking very good care of her!

I had the city pack put on as well (at a reduced cost for all the messing about) and seeing it next to another one (in red) this just looks so much meaner! It really enhances the whole look.

All of those that have ordered better wear 2pairs of underwear the day u pick urs up! U HAVE BEEN WARNED!

why? lowering the car - therefore better handling around corners,
getting the windows tinted - So it stays cool inside, and dont get blinded by the sun all the time.

Next time think before you start stereotyping, gosh.

i dont think its worth lowering it. The suspension has been set up fine and designed for that car.

I would tint the windows though but again each to there own

Before thinking about lowering ......... my standard 5 door regularly bottoms out its spoiler and mud 'flaps' on driveway turnouts, speed humps etc. This is a pain already - any lower and serious damage would happen.

As i said the suspension setup is good enough as it is. Honda have probably spent millions perfecting that suspention so there is no way im gonna change Mr. Hondas good work. If it isnt broke then dont fix it IMO. Plus my wallet in now a bit empty! LOL.

Plus as 3rdHonda said, speedbumps are already a pain! Im not even going to try!

Hi 5Summer5

The car looks the business. I'm postively envious. Black suits the Type R, it seems to have the edge on Milano Red.

I saw a Type R in Cheltenham slowing down on the Teweksbury Road and when it braked the high level light was only about 8 inches wide (I know on the normal 5 door it is just 1 bulb and from some angles can look as if it is not very wide ... but this was straight on from the back and it was narrow) and also only the 2 thin outer brake lights lit up. Not the other 2 bigger ones on the tailgate like the other Civics.

Can anyone confirm this ?!?!
