I thought the same. It looks a lot like the 2008 WRX STi, which is a nice car. I prefer the design of the Focus RS though.
They stopped making the Type R?! Or the Mugen version? Because if you found a Mugen in Europe, I am seriously impressed. I don't think I've seen more than two of the new model Civic Type Rs, but there are dozens of EP3 Type Rs (and Type S models, too) around where I live. But they're actually quite horrible. I don't mind people putting decent rims on cars, and 5Zigen is my idea of decent. I'm not so sure of the Halfolds multifit range available in the UK though.
the mugen they stopped (idiots) and that model of type R (that look) is done i'm pretty sure. and i did see a couple of mugens in europe, i think one was in france... and i definitely saw another one in spain too. You guys have type Rs and Ss. we have SIs.
edit: actually that's not fully true. you can get a civic type R here, but they call it a acura tsx...
