I thought it would look nice to have the front glass grill also lighted... i dont mean any tacky knight rider crap, just that it's lighted or perhaps you could fit additional lights inside the grill?

need to be careful of the law - if I remeber rightly, a light right across the front is a no-no...


but I could be wrong - it has been known :wink:

I don't know about having lights all the way across, but you can only have white light coming from the front of the car, I think. Tell that to all the truck drivers with banks of green and red LEDs, or the Corsa drivers with the blue LED washer nozzle.

I also wondered how long before someone actually backlit the H.

Hmmmm, give the standard Civic H logo a red back light so at night people think you have a RedH Type R :lol:

I personally don't like making a car appear to be type-r when it isn't. I have seen a few old model 5 door civics going around with red badges and 'Type-R' logos plastered all over it. I don't know if they think they're fooling anyone.
I do like the idea of a real Type-R having a backlit red H, but that is illegal, no red lights are allowed on the front of a motor vehicle :(

I have wondered what it would look like to replace the chromed stuff in the centre bit with something else. Something darker, a graphite colour maybe. But would that ruin the 'cyclops' look by breaking the wraparound light look? One thing I am not too fond of on the new Type-R is the fact they have replaced it with a grille.

I think I am happy the way it is, actually :D

funny, the very first thing I thought when I saw the front of the civic was "someones going to make a middle bit with some type of lights in it". just right for the "need for speed" generation. Maybe a back-lit H or maybe some extra spot lights?

In a year or so, when they are all a bit older, someones going to start making one, I guarentee it.

I was thinking along those lines as well but then decided it would look a bit tatty.

I am thinkign of getting the grill once the Type R comes out, think it will make the front looka a bit more aggressive. At the moment it looks too cute and cuddly!!!

Cute and cuddly? I think it looks pretty menacing actually!

Only if the light color is similar to the DRL, - or more different...
