<p>To be honest, for those who can fork out RM320k to buy this Civic Type R, he or she can afford a trip to Japan anytime that they want. In a way, this contest is just giving more to those who don&#039;t really need more instead of giving it to those who will really appreciate it but can&#039;t afford it.</p>

</p><p><br /></p><p>To stir up sales. But to encourage such owners, I think 30k worth of performance enhancing parts might even be more effective. :biggrin:</p>

</p><p>That depends too, all in the marketing. Anyway, trips have been the norm for prizes in many many industries......lol</p>

</p><p><br /></p><p>How about parts that money can&#039;t buy? That would stir up sales.. a race team only rear wing... not for public sale.... yup, that would make the hardcore snap up the car even faster.</p><p><br /></p><p>And considering the CTR is different from normal Civic, no risk of it getting stolen by Civic who wanna convert to Tipu-R</p>

</p><p><br /></p><p>Now that sounds like a better angle. </p><p>To learn how to fully wring the Civic R is tons better than just making a visit to Suzuka and like you said, these hardcore guys would surely appreciate the added skill that&#039;ll last a lifetime.</p><p><br /></p><p>Suzuka would be awesome but Sepang will do just fine</p><p><br /></p><p>

</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>I highly agree on this. Some exclusive Mugen or Modulo parts would be a good attraction. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Well, for now the FK8&#039;s body style is exclusive over here unless Honda Malaysia decides to bring in the normal Civic hatchback for sale.</p>

<p>Surely a great fun car to drive but the horrendous rice boyish style just turns me off completely. A45 anytime any day over this.</p>

</p><p><br /></p><p>This I agree. I personally don&#039;t like the styling of this CTR, I like the FD2R. BUT if i were to buy the FD2R i wouldn&#039;t be too happy with all the Tipu-R running around. </p><p><br /></p><p>The styling is bold and fresh, and something radically different. This is a toy, and for a toy, you wan&#039;t something out of this world and not conform to the norm. </p><p><br /></p><p>The current Impreza STI, you can remove the Subaru logo in the front, put on a Toyota or Mitsubishi badge and nobody would bat an eyelid. I find the V7 bug eye more iconic than the current one, tho the current one looks more &quot;mass market&quot;. Not saying its ugly but nothing special.</p>

<p>Well to me it just has too many fake holes and stuff, just way too busy design. Maybe what you guys call &quot;Ah Beng&quot; styling? :lol: I&#039;m ok with different aggressive styling but to me this just went way overboard.&nbsp; I guess like what bro VR2 has indicated, I may have passed the age group for that kind of stuff. :lol:</p>

</p><p><br /></p><p>Well as I said I&#039;m sure it&#039;s a great fun car to drive but I really doubt it will change the way I feel about the styling. I very seldom change my mind on those sort of things. There are many great cars that I still never like to see or own no matter what.</p>

</p><p><br /></p><p>Hahaha well yeah but I&#039;d already see it from the outside first before getting into the car and since I already see it as ugly, that thought will never disappear. Exterior look is very important criteria for me when buying a car coz I&#039;d have to see it everyday. If it&#039;s a sore to my eyes then that&#039;s it, no chance no matter how good the car is. It needs to have the best balance between performance and looks, and I&#039;m willing to compromise a bit on the performance rather than taking a car which is the best performing but too ugly to see.</p>
