There have been rumours that the Civic Type R will come over to North America. Even Motor Trend said that it will come over. Honda have never said that they will bring over the CTR. Are you convinced that it will come over any time soon?

I've read that the susp. on the 2002 si is closely similar to jdm ctr, other than 6 speed and body kit, how close would the specs of the jdm ctr be to the usdm?

similar but definitely not the same... it is a de-tuned from the Type R suspension. From the USDM Civic Si tests that I've read, the handling is definitely not as good as its competitors... but that could just be due to the small tires that is on the stock Si. It would be very interesting to see how the Si perform with just tire upgrades.

Acura holds the trademark agreement for the type R's here in America. It is highly unlikely that they will bring a civic type R over here anytime soon.
oh please:rolleyes: . i bet acura would sue honda if honda brought a ctr over huh? i mean it's not the same damn company or anything.

No they wouldn't sue them that wasn't my point. My point was that the agreement is that if a type R makes it to these shores it will be under the acura badge. That is only one of the dozens of reasons why we will likely not see another type R here. I think it is likely that an rsx type R will make it here sometime to replace the integra type R....
i'm sure somethign could be worked out between acura and honda;)
