A few weeks ago I saw a new Civic Type R parked on the street and figured I might as well post what I think. Yes, I still love the cleaner lines of the earlier Type Rs and I don’t like the fake vents and what not...

BUT,

After seeing it irl I have to say it has very nice proportions, the overall shape of the car is quite aggressive for a hatchback (?) and I think it actually works, aside from some details like the vents and maybe the wing (saw it in passing and didn’t quite soak in the details). If you think it looks ugly on a screen, I would recommend to reserve judgement until seeing it irl.
