The new UK/Euro spec Civic Type-R.
I want one and I want a Type-R Accord to go with it.

Boo Honda US :thumbsdow
Honda's marketing people are very good at what they do. They have determined that any Type-R car would just not sell in enough numbers in the US to make it worth the effort to import them into the US. The European Civic is a totally different car from the US Civic and is probably not well suited to American roads or American buyers. Here in the US you can buy a Civic SI, either coupe or sedan. I am not really sure how many of them are sold each year.

This same argument goes on at the 9th Generation forum when someone posts a YouTube video of an Accord sold in Lower Slabovia. Why can't we get those features on our Accord? Because, the marketing people have determined that Slabovians want different things in a car than Americans. :banana:
