I'm pretty sure that the Taiwan cars don't have the same suspension as ours do so they wont fit. If Koni comes out with a Coilover kit, it should be waaaaaaaaaay better than the FSD in terms of handling.

Again... The US, Europe, and Asian market cars have different front struts for some odd reason. Hell, if Koni would be content giving us an insert at this stage of the game, I'll get them, but the cartridges may be too different in length or diameter to fit.

Its just not Honda that does/did it. Mazda, Nissan, Mitu, Subi, Toyota will only bring a watered down version of what they have.

Honda isn't very smart for having the USDM, JDM, EDM civics have different suspension or be a completely different car all together. How does that help keep cost down.

you would think that "Economies of Scale" they would want to keep everything the same. But then again with them making different models it leaves something to be desired from Japan.
