I always thought that Championship white was a bright white similar to the GPW on the S2000. It wasn't until I started seeing the new CTRs that I realized they are a bit off-white, a bit of a yellow tinge to them, it is a very unique white.

I don't own one, but jvf1 has honoured me and I've driven his several times. My impression is lots of quiet torque and power with spectacular handling, but there is a lack of drama. I still love the look of the TypeR.
If I owned one, I'd put straight pipes on it to make it more vocal- kinda like Dean's (local TypeR owner). If I could only own one car, and one car only...it would be a typeR.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

and yet they only have one manual shift on the lot. ONE! yup, I'm a broken record but there's no way I'm buying a car with 2 pedals.

I can't buy GM...ok, I'd buy a used Camaro SS 1LE- holeee F balls that car put a big grin on my face.
I figure someone will be still making manual shift vehicles in 5 years...or they better. I find myself walking into dealerships just to ask the question I know the answer to- "do you guys put a manual in the X? Oh, you don't. That's too bad- I can't spend my money here."

SO, who still puts a real transmission in new vehicles? Mazda3, Nissan Qashqui, Nissan 370Z, Fiat500 Abarth, Challenger Hellcat (!), Chevy Camaro, Corvette, Hyundai Veloster (N!), VW Golf/Jetta, Ford Mustang, Kia Something or other, Porsche Boxster, 911 (barely), Subaru WRX, BMW 2 series. But the trend is to keep 3 pedals out of the hands of soccer dads and moms ie, family cars, or interesting family type vehicles.

But, Honda still puts manuals in several vehicles I like- accord 2.0T being one...and of course, the TYPE R! Looks like I'll need to buy one, eh?

niiiice!

They're a track weapon out the box too! It's immensely capable at the track provided you don't overheat it. It really threw us at OTA for a loop when it was introduced. Needed some tweaking on the classes because on Mosport GP it was keeping some insane speeds on Andretti straight.

I wonder how they overcame the heating issues when doing so many runs at the "Ring"
