Well with the £ being so weak against the Euro, you can get one in the UK for less than 18,000 Euro's!

So couldn't you try to import one from the UK?

I found this from the Paris motor show press pack:

CHAMPIONSHIP WHITE CIVIC TYPE R
The crowning glory in the Civic range is a long-awaited, higher specification Type R GT in Championship White.

Fans of the ‘Red H’ have been eager to get a Civic Type R in white since the latest body shape was introduced in 2007 and now their calls have been answered. This car will be available to order from the end of the year with all models built at Honda’s manufacturing plant in Swindon.

As well as the distinctive Championship White paint finish that evokes memories of Honda’s first F1 car in 1963, this Type R gets 18” white alloy wheels, a contrasting smoke chrome finish on the badges, door handles, fuel lid and front grille and exclusive Type R plaque.

And there’s more. The powerful 2.0 litre i-VTEC engine, which produces 200PS at a spine tingling 8000rpm is now mated with a Limited Slip Differential that sharpens the car’s handling and driving dynamics even further. Around our test track in Tsukaba, Japan, the ‘white hot’ Type R shaves 1.44 seconds off the standard car’s time.

Hey guys, been lurking arround for two months and this is my first post.

What is the current price in pounds of the Type R CW in the UK? I would be interested in importing one, but the wheel being on the right side could be an impediment. Also, seeing that the dealers only get 2 cars can be another issue. Maybe NH Dan can see if a CW designed for the rest of Europe can be ordered from Swindon. Will be much appreciated.

Sorry for being off topic.

On topic, besides the plastic being improved and the USB reading device, I also think it's the same stuff under the hood and inside.

Thanks DR.

Just remembered that here you can see all the type R specs and prices in the UK

Honda UK Media Resource :: Cars :: Civic Type R Specifications

Hope this helps sorting this thread out.

Saw that the all Type R models get "Driver and passenger seat memory function for
rear access."

Then again, I could be wrong, as all the specification sheets (including the 56/57 plates) are stating that this memory seat function is included. Better check in a showroom to see what's the truth behind this.

The memory seats would almost make it worth upgrading for that alone!

This can vary between markets.
In Sweden the GTs have always had HIDs, but in the UK they were not available..

Tyre monitoring... does that mean you have run flat tyres? Or can fit them if you want them? Or is it just a nice little extra safety feature?
