  1. I have owned both and they are bith great cars, I like the more hardcore touch that the Civic offers but you wont be disapointed with either!
  2. If you look at the PDF of the performance figures that Toyota released the other day it shows there will still be a "LIFT" zone maybe not quite as pronounced as the normally aspirated model though! Nick
  3. I reckon FenSport will proberly sort out some sort of pully kit to up the boost on the Supercharger no need to swap it for a Turbocharger! I just hope it comes fitted with LSD so it can put all that power down! Nick
  4. Is this a fact only 1000 will be made, whats is that all about? Please tell this isnt a fact! I was considering looking in to one of these! Nick
  5. I would be interested in changing my Type-R for one of these, if is goes as good as it looks! Nick
  6. Why would a CTS appear on the Civic forum? ;) ← I was talking about an 04 Civic Type-R!
  7. Ok no problem, the reason I asked is because on the facelift models all the wheel arches are insulated this does make a big difference to the sound in side the car. A facelift car can be picked up as cheap as £13795 on the Civic forum but you will have to be patient. :)
  8. Glad you found some of my info interesting do mine me asking what your buget is? Nick
  9. Maybe its just me but the majority of owners I have met on the Honda forums since I changed my Corolla T-Sport to a Civic Type-R have been real enthusiasts. Unfortunately though it’s not a NSX Type-R, it an affordable 17k hatch back which means inevitably some owners will be knobs, which is always a shame. Dont worry you havent touched a nerve, I am still very happy with my car despite whats been said. I just prefer the cult following with the Type-R brand but this dosnt mean I dont have a soft spot for the T-Sport anymore. I still get to drive one as one of my close friends owns a pre face lift model! I know the CTS very well indeed! Heres my old car: And here my CTR with my buddys CTS: CTS On The Limit!: Enjoy! Nick
  10. This is true and I aggree with you, but to say all Type-R drivers are knob heads is a little daft dont you think!
  11. Busterisace, Mate once you start the modding game it become very hard to stop, before I sold my Corolla T-Sport I was strongly thinking about getting a TRD (Toyota Racing Development) exhaust sysytem fitted these can be bought from Tune a Car (CTS Exhaust System) this is by far one of the best systems around for your car and will improve performance no end! I hope this helps! Nick
  12. That’s a bit of a far-fetched comment, what leads to believe that every Civic Type-R driver is a knob head? I would be interested to hear your reason why, because I am certainly not thanks very much! I was driving to my girlfriends the other evening when some idiot came steaming up my rear end as soon as he could he drew level with my car, guess what it was a Corolla T-Sport. So does that make every T-Sport owner a knob head, er no…… it doesn’t Like I said before for driver thrills the Type-R is far and away the better car, but its doesn’t offer any of the creature comforts that the Toyota offers but when it only come out at the weekend this is not a problem. For the enthusiast the Honda offers much more in the way of performance modification, which I also enjoy! Nick
  13. Sorry FMRL you just stole 9bph from the CTS in that post, the CTS had 189BHP! Nick
  14. It all down to what you want from the car, I went from the CTS to a CTR as it suited my more than the Corolla. The Type-R is much more of a drivers car than the T-Sport but the Corollas the better car if you rack up the miles! Any questions please just ask, or vist our Type-R forum! Type-R.org
