I have heard so much mixed reviews of the 8th Gen European Honda Civic. Top Gear slated it, I loved it on first site, but now I'm not so sure.

Here's a pic of it for those that forget easily:



What do people think of it?

Back to the European, the actual features are pretty cool, but I don't like those triangular exhausts, but gimmicky if you ask me :p

a mate of mine is thinking of getting that white fd2 civic above (lucky swine!) he used to own a integra dc5,
i do like them alot its just a shame they have the extra doors on them :x but they are there because the japs
dont have an accord so basically used this car as their accord and badged it a civic,the mugen one is far better
but more expensive and only comes in red :x shame it would look the part in white!

That's where a custom paint job comes in ;)

But that Mugen is tuned more than any other Civic also. Read about it at Yahoo!. Top Gear however slates it unfairly I think.

Sure it only comes in red? Here it is in blue:

that first one is terrible, but hen it looks like a basic model, the type R isnt too bad, but i would rather have an EP3 (lees shape) the FD2 is class, not to keen on it form behind, but overall its wicked. the mugen one is a beast, but i agree it should come in white, afterall that is Hondas trademark colour!!

Not a fan of the big glass rear and the triangular exhaust holes in the TypeR bumper. The Mugen FN2 is pimp though!

I hated it at first. It's grown on me a lot. I'd be very happy with a Mugen 200, or a Championship White edition of the Type R. The FN2 is apparently the best Type R ever made...

Really? thats the first I heard of it, many people say its no where near as good as the EP3 except the looks, the EK9 and DC2 hold the best Type-R awards

all the reviews i've seen of it say far from that.

Its got more prehistoric rear suspension than the EJ9!!
