Lmao... He is king of the Hater's ball... I've learned to enjoy it. It's like clockwork too. I laugh every time.

I like. I think it looks good. I knew it would.

The color is too trendy for me however.
White, red or black for me.

It does look bit yellowish off angle and light, kinda what makes it unique. I wouldn't have my first Type R in any other color.

That bottom one looks closest to the Type R I saw last week. He had true white wheels on it, which frankly wasn't that bad of a combo. Not something I would do myself, but I couldn't criticize it

Yeah, like the nardo grey going around the German car groups. Does this have any metal flake in it, or is it pretty flat (hard to tell from the pics)?

Also, the very first pic makes it look like there's some orange peel in the paint job. You can see it in the reflection of the spoiler

Not saying they're not different but you cant compare a 25 year old paint from japan... Its humid as fck there and oxidation is horrid on paint.
