  1. Australian Type R Order/Info Thread

    Has anyone had any updates? I am hearing cars will be coming in Jan with prices to "start with a 7". But havent heard this myself from a credible source. Anything in the 70s is a MASSIVE jump from the FK8 and completley out of touch with both the competition and the price in Japan. It actually...
  2. Backup plans - what's yours?

    It does. The Civic is a bigger, more practicle car and I like the interior more on the FL5. I have driven both (fk8) and you are really splitting hairs when it comes to being a daily driver. The FK8 finished up around $59k. Rumour has it the FL5 will "start with a 7". If that is true and Honda...
  3. Backup plans - what's yours?

    Not to mention track warranty. I'm waiting for price to be released for the CTR in Aus before I decide but the i30n is pretty compelling.
  4. Backup plans - what's yours?

    Luckily we have the i30 hatch in Australia so that will be my back up. Can't get around the sedans looks. From what I'm hearing there maybe as much as a $20k saving! i30 premium hatch is $54k incl gov charges, the civic is tipped to be starting with a 7!
  5. Cutaway of the mysterious intake box

    I think this can be the only explanation. Protecting the turbo from dripping water coming from the bonnet vent. The plastic would be less likely to corrode over time also.
  6. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    Is that not considered hot!? People are just glossing over these like it's not a big deal. Whats the go?
  7. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    I noticed the bouncing in the Piston Heads first look video also. They are bobbing all over the place. Praise Odin for individual mode this time around.
  8. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    From 14:30 on (when he has the passenger) the stability is off completely.
  9. FL5 Type R is last one?

    LOL. You're right though! Right idea, but they are rushing the execution. This isn't localised to the US. The Australian capital has annouced the will be no ICE vehicles sold within the Australian Capital Territory (state where the capital is located) by 2035.
  10. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    He touches on how he feels like this might be the last one (ICE Type R). He mentions how it feels deliberate and made with purpose. He also refers to electrification of new cars from 2035 a couple times and how he grew up in a good era. I cant help but feel bad for the future of car...
  11. Looks like US Civic Type R FL5 versions are on their way to shipping...

    I've spoken to my dealer also and he is confident there will be an initial allocation for Aus in December (delivery hopefully Q1). He couldn't find where he read it though. He also said Honda had asked for dealer feedback regarding colours. They could launch with all colours or save 1 or 2 for a...
  12. Markups and more: The Death of Car Dealerships

    This is basically how it works in Australia for New cars. The Manufacturers advertise a vehicle at a "Drive Away Recommended Retail Price" which includes registration and government charges. This RRP is a ceiling that the dealer must stick to as per Australian consumer law. The margin is built...
  13. vs GR Corolla

    True, I remember people saying they should have added a piece to the door to make it look more flush. Enter the aftermarket. I dont hate it. Varis do something similar
  14. Best Factory Color - 2023 FL5 Type R 📸Updated Pics📸

    I double wrapped back in Uni. Definitely lasted longer
  15. vs GR Corolla

    FK8 owners: 🤨
  16. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    Mentions in the comments there is a full throttle run coming to Honda's Youtube.
  17. Australian Type R Order/Info Thread

    You're right, I should have said better availability. From what I've read 93 in the US can be hard to find depending on the state so it makes sense to offer a detuned version. Here we have 98 pretty much everywhere. Or maybe I just really want them to give us the full fat version from Japan!! 😆
  18. Australian Type R Order/Info Thread

    Yeah it was the same with the FK8. Some say its due to Fuel quality and others say it's because of our hotter climates? We have far better fuel than the US and FL5 was meant to address the overheating issues so....:dunno:
  19. Australian Type R Order/Info Thread

    https://www.drive.com.au/news/2023-honda-civic-type-r-price-japan/ Whats everyones thoughts on this? Speculating $60-70k in Aus.
  20. FL5 Type R JDM Spec leaked, +40kg;Reservation skyrocketed in Japan reported by Bestcar

    Hey check it out! The FL5 has put on 40kg! I wonder how that'll effect how it drives??
