Love those character lines. Is that Rallye Red? Unfortunately, that’s not how it (the color) looks in real life. Photos taken through tinted glass (window)?

I don't think pictures ever really do justice, do they? Either way, looks great!

The thing is since FL5 has much smoother body lines and less angular creases, pictures under studio lights never do justice, especially when they use really strong spotlights.
In real life conditions, the car will look much better like the ones posted. But I didn’t expect it to look this much better. The wider corners look really thic and purposeful this time. The front bumper together with the new angled hood line create tasteful lights and shadows under the sunlight as well, I am really digging it man.

It looks very wide. Those hips finally emphasized in its natural habitat.

The front end looks mean as hell. My reference points are always past M3’s and M2 and I can confidently say this is the first Honda ever made that gives me BMW ///M vibes.

Now of course that could be looked down upon by some, but I love it.

100% agree. I’m getting F8x M vibes as well. Those swollen arches look mean.
