By time my lease is up the Type R should be out. haha. It's not a "should be out" it's "the entire civic range will be out" in 2 years time. And i definitely plan on going and looking at the sedan when it hits lots, then again when the coupe hits lots.By the time your lease is up, the coupe should be out and then you can compare both! I want to test drive one in the snow as that will be the ultimate test for me and my final decision will be based on how well it handles in a snow storm.
Then depending on if the Si were to get an auto transmission of some sort, i'd go back again to look at that. haha.
