    I pass Swindon every day, so I'm used to seeing about 90000000 Civic's on the road and loads on transporters. I saw something this morning though on the back of a transporter, and I'm fairly certain it was the new shape CTR. Are they now uncovered? It looked like the Sport a little bit but had an FK2 style spoiler on the back of it and red edges around the wheels. Or maybe it was the FK2 special edition? However all the other Civic's on there were the new shape. Also saw the new shape on the road yesterday near Swindon.

    Have seen a ton of new shape Civic Sports around Reading areas in the last week. And i know why. Peak times, roughly 8am, 5-or-more new shape Civics pour out of Reading Honda driven by salesmen and go cruising. No better advertising than seeing them on the road i suppose. probably goes on all day.

    I've heard this is regular dealership practice. Fiat did it with the 124 Spider when that came out.

    Just changes for changes sake i feel. This new 10g R reminds me of the EP3 transitioning to FN2 saga. Only 10 more powers but basically same engine is very familiar. Undoubtable the 10g will be an all round better and more grown up car than the FK2 but will it be a better enthusiasts car?!?!?....
    .... Like the first reviews of the FN2 came back with generalisations that it was more grown up than the EP3, but the EP3 was the better drivers car. I think history will repeat itself with this new car vs the FK2.

    Just watched a walk around video of the new one. Did I really just see an electric parking brake? I hate those things.

    I full agree with your comment. I went from EP3 to FN2 and it was a big mistake. Now, IŽll not repeat such mistake. I fell happy enough with the FK2. The 10 is only for USA market.

    I think it does, there was pictures floating around a few wks ago showing the interior.

    I'm not keen looking at this picture, not sure if it's the angle but the bonnet scoop looks like it's been tamed down

    So if the engine is the same in the new car, that would surely mean mapping / tuning options filtering back for the FK2?
