i do not think that is true. the dealer does not even know what color they are getting until it randomly arrives.. i did not have an ETA. i just got the cargo mats and floor mats. the dealer gave me a nice discount on those.


Ordered in MAY.. arrived in NOV. expected to get it in FEB 2018 though.

The sales and the sales manager both ensure me it will be here in 3-4months time. I guess we will see what happen when the date get closer.

I initially thought FAST was just another brand of cast wheel, but found out they actually got some good stuff recently since they seem to be increasing in popularity around the GTA area tracks.

Seems like FAST actually has a roll formed lineup of wheels (FC ## Models).
That's the same construction that makes the RPF1 so light and strong, yet value priced at the same time.

I wanted the FC04 .. but they were sold out.. and they were about $150 a wheel at the time

Yeah, I work at Openroad Honda and they said the people who had deposits for the Civic typeR have changed their preferences to White.

Our black one, which has been on our lot for a month, is finally sold.

So I finally saw one in person today driving by, we made eyes on russbaker around 6:30, classic championship white. I still need to get some up close and personal time but I think the looks will grow on me. Some things I’ll always hate like the big plastic fake vents, but it looks aggressive and really stands out in a crowd

see.lai, do you know if there's a long list for CW? I went to Open Road and talked to Peter Fan. I don't know if he took me seriously but he didn't even take a deposit and said he will add me to the list....

Any other Honda connects? tnx

Your best bet is to try talking to one of the managers (fleet, business, etc); they may think you're serious. The salesman probably just blew you off or something. I don't know how long the wait was for CW, but I was told there were over 10+ in line.

(I work for service, btw)

^ Good call for paint protection.

We should have a CW Type R photo shoot in the spring. I know the owner of a genuine CW EK9 Type R as well in Victoria. You might even know him from Campus Honda.
