Type R - Kitted up

Hi all, if the same as me you think the new Type R looks great but a little too 'samey' as the S. Well worth paying the extra and adding the 19 inch Rage alloys, front,rear & side protectors along with the rear difuser and new front spoiler. Makes the car look amazing as the pic from the brochure shows. Never been a fan of the new civic in red but with the extra 'bits' it looks great. Very tempted to put an order in but will wait for the test drive first to see if i can get used to having the rev the 'nuts' out of the engine to get anywhere after having the effortless pull of the 2.2 Ictdi.

Now that does look sharp. I'm still trying to work out if the diffuser etc is fittable to the standard 5 door. any thoughts anyone?

must admit...

as I've posted elsewhere, I'm not a great fan of the mesh between the front lights

but when combined with the mesh in that new front spoiler, it does work very well


Nice wheels too

I'm undecided on the mesh, I do think it makes it look sportier but do I prefer it to the perspex? Not a chance! How long before we see some coloured perspex? The darkened version was nice.

I want one... aarrgh no money... mind you if they did that look with a 180-200bhp version of the 2.2... I think I would have to sell a kidney or lung or something... and that's just for the insurance!

Cheers

Thats nice, must be someway of getting the body kit onto the five door. However isn't the Type R (and S i think..) slightly wider at the rear than the rest of the range, or is it just the rear track thats bigger... who has a brochure to hand...?

Also those wheels...? how much and will they fit???

The 19" wheels cost me £950 extra. I cant see why they would not fit a five door.

Nice one, where did you find them....looks even better with the high quality pics.....

In answer to parts fitting the 5 door.....all parts will fit, 3 door is the same size externally and the 5 door only the rear track is wider hence the slighty wider rear arch extensions. The only stumbling block to putting the parts on the 5 door will be the cost.....all parts are listed on the Honda accessory page but no prices. Going on the cost of the 5 door kits (grand prix pack etc at around £1500) it will not be cheap. To make the 5 look like the R, you would need the front bumper extensions, the grille, both side skirts and the rear bumper / diffuser, rear spoiler plus the body potectors....

I should imagine Honda would fit them for you - just look at doubling the price


But damn that is very nice

I really, i mean REALLY want this image pack on my 5 door civic. It simply looks amazing! That rear diffusor is ace and the whole pack looks more racy than the 5 door image pack.

I agree, it looks very very funky. Does anyone know if these can or cannot be fitted to 5 doors?
