No Tom, Don't do it. If you leave us then where will we find great product to fit our cars at reasonable prices. Now, just sit back, relax, breath and repeat these words...I love my Subaru, SUV's suck...I love my Subaru, SUV's suck. Now, don't you feel better. What are you sitting down for, go make us some new parts so we can send you more money.

Sounds like the UK term Boy Racer. They like to slap hood scoops and big wings on the cars there too. Just wait till they graft on the hood vents and scoop. If they come to you for parts just remember "Friends don't let friends drive Hondas." J/K That doesn't go for the Type-R or a real Type-R Civic which I have been in once.

Mine is functional. Keeps the engine cooler since I took off the plating behind the scoop. As for the intercooler....uh....I have a cooler....inside. So I do have an "intercooler".

Hey Prog..

show me ONE picture in ANY publication that hasn't been thru photoshop.

I know photoshop pretty well.

...and thats why I see the reflection of a white car PARKED next to the one in the pic.

You sure dont see too many cars parked next to a car smoking the tires on a wet skid pad do we... LOL

Templar, if you insist on acting like a Honda owner, why don't you go and get a civic? Why is it that you can't see the usefulness of an SUV? I'm sick of people on this board bashing SUVs for no apparent reason. Bash people who drive em who should have Mini-vans, but not the SUVs themselves. I tell you I was about to get a Legacy GT Wagon, til I realized it had Zero Acceleration with 5 people in it. Got a trooper for a little more than the subie. I still have my XT6 though which I use as my sporty car. If you were more open minded you'd realize that cars are made for specific purposes and SUVs do have their purpose.

Is this suposed to be new model Civic? Man if so, there will be more of those cars with scoops that ppl will start to think that we copied them!!! Or worse, "Oh that's a civic honey...look it has AWD on it too..." i feel like puking.

Well I guess we should look at it like this. When the Honda crowd started out modifying their cars and trying to get people to see them as sports cars you can damn well bet that most of America laughed and said not a chance. 10yrs later and Honda is the largest group at any import show, or even street night at a local track. Now since the RS and soon the factory turbo have come to be reality there will be more people wanting to borrow ideas from our cars and even a few more who will buy one of our cars out right. For the people that were around this time last year you will remember how small our parts market was and how few tuners there really were. Also look at how far this site came along. Not at all bad for only the first year! I say let em copy the Legacy. If orignality to them means copying another design then thats OK. You have to admit at this point alot of other things have been done. Pretty soon alot of the designs will start looking the same or similar to another model or year car. Now if Honda cashes in an builds AWD Civics again then that will be another story.

Crikey! Did anyone notice the rims are just like the "future" Impreza? In fact, that computer mock up of the "future" Impreza's scoop and headlights has been tacked on to the Civic...I think.

I'd be seriously concerned if I saw a car smoking like that, without anyone even behind the wheel...
