The Plastic Cover over the (Head/Tail-Lights/Cluster/ Nav.) seems Boy-Toy (Cheap) and E-Zly Scratchable. Plus the Door Handle are different from ours where you just pull to OPEN. Their's...you Squeeze then pull. Other than that, Kool Car!!!

That's the 1st time I see one of those models in N. America. I have driven one in Europe and it was awesome. I so wish they would bring that here. Looks really nice!

1.) To the OP: I hope you meant "Type-R," but it's neither the Type-R or Type-S (whatever that may be). You can tell by the "glassy" headlight cluster, as you can see above the Type-R has a regular grill
2.) That's not the first one in the states
3.) It's probably the diesel they run in europe, I read about Honda doing research with the diesel in the states, to see if it would be practical and viable. In the initial stages they got around 70 mpg on the highways. Take that Prius!

You my friend, need to do a little research before you start talking.

Honda Car Experience

Take a look at the cars, look for the Civic Type-S 5 Door, and check it out.
