New nose option ?

My Honda app on iPhone recently updated itself, just had a look and aero pack gives front end a completely new look. I like it but may not be to all tastes.

The style doesn't work for me, mainly because of the lack of colour coding so high up the front. The Sports grill isn't to my taste either, mainly because I think the standard nose looks really sharp already.

Any chance of a pic for those without the app (i.e. me!)?

Although I personally didn't have a huge issue with the previous grill, I have to say I really like this. The car looks sleaker and more aerodynamic although I wonder if it would look the same with the lower 1/2 colour coded as I think the black / white contrast adds to the effect.

Nevertheless, well done Honda!

Looks like the front end of some 4x4. Honda design team, what's wrong with you these days?

I do like it, gives the car a much more aggressive look. Think I prefer the standard front though.

Hence the fact it's a 9th Gen.

Those new bumpers do the 9th Gen a lot of favours to my eyes, far less body colour along the bottom making it less blobbly, more balanced, shorter overhangs. Also blends with the plastic wheel arches better.

On my app it shows the new front as part of the 'Aero pack'. Which I cant find on main website? So no price for pack.

Also 17' radium alloys 1250 if chosen from wheels & accessory section, (car builder) but 1750 from the next down accessory upgrade section??

Honda needs to update its website more often or pay more attention.

You're not usually wrong Sam ... and this isn't one of those occassions either

Guess Honda are listening to feedback though and changing slowly - so the Type S when (Not if ... it's a no brainer!!) should look mint and have 2 less doors!
