    Its Honda's demo car....and no it does not sound good and yes it is a better effort than the previous one....but it's still a horrible ugly awful thing.

    Honda at Rathcoole had one in their show room about 3 weeks back. I'd say this is the same one. Nearly crashed my car looking at it going by the showroom.

    Would love one

    Totally disagree with everything thing there. And as regards the opc I owned. In my opinion and this is only my opinion....its one of the most underrated hot hatches ever build.

    OPC and focus STs were the most dissapointing hot hatches i ever drove. Drive a megane F1 or RS , or even to a lesser golf GTI, world's apart.
    Had a turbo, WRX , STI , 2 WR1s and a legacy B4

    Scrawn, you always push your opinion but berate others for giving theirs. Do you not see the flaw in that?

    I'm another who thinks they look and sound well. I think that what the FK8 is now, is what Subaru should have developed the STI to look like. It's flying off the forecourt worldwide.

    I'd be of the same opinion as Alan with regard the OPC, but I wouldn't berate someone for liking it or buying one.

    However if you're in a situation where the looks of a car dictate you buying it, as opposed to how it drives, maybe just buy a beemer or something.

    No Opel has a patch on Honda handling and driving experience.

    I don't berate I just offer a rebuff is all. My issues with the type r run far deeper than just the way it drives or looks. It's a total depart from what the type r philosophy originally was. And it takes all sorts to make the world go round.

    Racecar for the road is still the philosophy. It's harder nowadays to get away with no sound deadening, lighter glass, etc. Due to safety and emissions, everything needed to change.

    Realistically, anything other than the NSX isn't true to the TypeR badge. But it really lost it's worth over 15 years ago with the Accord TypeR.
