I like the wheels (though they aren't the stock wheels) but the spoiler looks like an after thought... i like my coupe spoiler alot more, it integrates with the overall design of the car better, while this one just looks.. stuck on at the last minute. I think instead of doing a spoiler that sat on two posts they shouldve done a "U" shaped one like the Type R has, just not as tall IMO.

Seats look nice, supportive remind me of the old RSX seats that were all one piece.

It'll be interesting to see what they can manage with the 1.5T... given the regular civic 1.5T can pull close to or better than 9th gen numbers, even with 210hp and the mountains more torque it'll have it shouldn't be hard for this car to go 0-60 in less than 6 seconds, which more than puts it in line with the GTI, especially since this Si should be lighter than the 9th gen was. It'll really shine in the handling department, which lets face it, has always been the goal of the Si... not straight line speed, but instead fun to drive and handling like a champ. Still alot of crying fanboys about it not getting the 2.0T

Not liking those wheels one bit but fortunately this is just a prototype which could potentially differ slightly from what we see in a production model and if there's anything easy to change from prototype to production model, its those wheels.

The wheels aren't standard anyway, those are the optional HFP wheels. The wheels the Si gets will most likely be the same ones on the hatch sport models.

I see a sport button, so I'm guessing the Si is going to have normal and sport drive modes. Think it'll have eco too?

ECO would be a button I would never use!
Would be crazy for them to add it and I doubt there's any sort of regulation that would require it but wouldn't be entirely surprised. It's not like most of the Si community will care, most are like us and want to ride it through the powerband.

Even if it's there, it'll hardly get used. It's not like it would really take away from anything to be real... it's just unnecessary in an Si and unnecessary to majority of the Si buyers.

I don't think the last generation Si had it, so if that's any indication of what we can expect this time around, we have our answer.

Don't like how small those wheels look and the design of them sort of throws me off. Never liked how CCW's look on this new era of Honda design.

For reference, this is the look i'm after:

Honestly I'm not fond of them either, It was the best thing I could find in terms of cleanness of picture. The TE37 looks good on any car though. Like literally lmao. That's the only problem with them that I have, they're too over-used.

I think the wheels look fine, maybe the angle of the picture makes the wheel dimensions look off? Bot a fan of the TE37, saw a shine bronze chrome set and they were not my cup of tea.

Neo-Chrome TE37s would be dope as ****. But only on certain colors. That being said I'm actually not a super-huge fan of the TE37. I'll probably get roasted for this lmao.

The Type R wheels do look pretty darn good. Pricing is going to be quite high for them though, but I wonder who manufactures them ?

Tough to say who will make the production versions but BBS is one of the wheel makers that takes on a lot of contracts from car makers. But it's only something we'll find out after seeing the wheel in person and the markings on it, not something we can find out easily online.
