I agree, that's just what i would of liked if i owned one. Its nice to see they have fitted proper brakes to it !
yes a big difference between the two cars i noticed straight away was the brakes, the type r were awful in comparison now

Top car mate! Am looking at trading in the R for one of these myself... I'm waiting until the facelift version hits the streets so it knocks 2nd hand values a little.

I'm assuming its the full fat version without the cup chassis? Does it have an lsd or is that only with the +cup chassis. Looks like its got the heated leather seats.. what other options has it got?

Very interested to hear how you rate it against the type-r once you've lived with it for a while
i.e build quality (perceived and actual), handling, running costs etc.

Hi mate, it's not the cup version so no LSD, recaros etc on mine as I wont be doing track days, I went for the compromise, ie leather electric heated seats, I'm getting on a bit lol. Its 3mths old and came with the 19" Steev alloys, visibity pack, upgraded stereo, and the yellow two tone leather with yellow seatbelts, all these listed are optional extras.
Build wise it's a million times better than its predecessor, cabin feels wrapped around you, brakes and suspension far superior and then the speed, noticeably quicker than the type r. I definitely already miss the vtec roar of the r though, but first impressions are excellent
