Out of curiousity how old is the CTR owner. I'm in my mid 40's and sometimes feel a bit too old for the car.

I'm 33 and planning to buy the new car but yeah I honestly feel "too old" sometimes, which is wild because who really cares what you drive? But as anyone in "middle life" or that has a family/kids knows, there is a lot of pressure - sometimes external and sometimes internal - to buy a more "practical car" - especially one with no wing, lol. I honestly go back and forth on it, but I think the constant checking of this forum for over a year is a sign that it's what I want, and hey, the car still has four doors and a hatch, so it's downright practical!

I'm 32 and planning on getting the new Type R (assuming the price stays reasonable). I'm planning to keep this car forever as well, so I'll likely be 60 and still rocking it.

Mid 30s and looking at the 11th gen type r in white. Planning to keep it 15-20 years, so that would put me into my 50s, at which time I'd be ready to move on to a Lexus LS460 or something 😂

Hello everyone, I am 27 from China. Excuse me for my bad English. I plan to buy the new TR next year. It will cost me 3 years' salary i have saved. In China ,only a few of young people can buy it. I'm very lucky.

I'm 30 and bought an fk8 last year. No one cares except kids who think you're cool and will take a pic of your car sometimes.

I’m 29. I got shit for getting my 2019 Type R from random people online. But in person nothing but compliments.

Ultimately I think this is an issue that only car guys care about. Normal people see it and either don’t care or they think it’s cool.

People really don’t change much from high school as it turns out. Think about it. Don’t be worrying about what other 30/40 year olds online think about your car. Who gives a shit. It’s a fun car, buy it for yourself, not for some perceived peer group.

You are not too old. I am in my 60's. Still love it after driving it two years. Lots of smiles and impromptu conversations- with car buffs of all ages,
