      Yes when cold, metal content pads, annoying sometimes, but stop from 60 in 100 feet. As I use the car only as a daily driver I will probably replace them with ceramics at some point, not sure how much that will reduce brake performance, for my use probably not much, and may reduce rotor wear, possibly even brake dust.

      I don't care what people say about it's styling, this type R is a special car indeed. It truly performs way above it's price tag would suggest, the stability and speed it carried through that on ramp is beautiful. I hate myself for buying an Si, should have waited 6 months and saved up enough for the R. If it weren't for the fact I'm also saving for a wedding, I probably would have.... It's definitely a car I will one day own.
      And they pull HARD too, the 0-60 figures don't tell the full story at all, I would wager it could do 60-120 faster than any of it's direct competitors.I've riden in modern STIs and Golf Rs, and from a roll, the Type R definitely feels MUCH faster. Only been in a Focus RS once, but it felt at least as fast to me as well.

      Deputy Wreckmeister the hills was my biggest fears when i first started learning manual transmission but now it doesnt bother me but i tried looking for a empty parking lot that has a steep hill and i just practiced for a long time, or when you come up the hill and stop you can pull the e-brake up and then go into first gear and once you feel the car is ready go just pull the e-brake down and it should go straight forward

      Most modern day manuals have hill assist that will hold the brake for you while you apply throttle to get going to prevent rollback. The Type R has a brake hold function that will engage the brake same as you holding the brake pedal down at a stop. Convenient if you're stuck in traffic albeit lazy.

      It’s nice but Honda design was for the ricers and not the racers. The wing kills it in a bad way. Now I will say this, I have seen a few with the wing delete and it looks a ton better!

      Captain Jack functional at high speeds but super ugly at low speeds which 99 percent of the time you are driving average speeds. Look I’m not discrediting the car, I actually like it. But the appealing factor is low because of looks not function.

      MainManJC The wing is functional. And I am not sure how a track focused car wasn’t designed for the “racers”. Ricers drive 150hp cars with loud exhaust, a million useless accessories tacked on. This is the King of hot hatches.

      The fk8 type R actually has much better ride quality than it's predecessor the fk2 as the fk2 had a torsion beam with resulted in a hard ride whereas the fk8 has multi-link rear suspension for improved ride quality... although it won't be super comfortable since it has 20 inch wheels and lower suspension it's much more comfortable than the fk2 type R

      Jonesyy Boyy In reply to Geese1

      Geese1 Could be that the owner of that Type R hasn’t replaced the brakes, usually brakes don’t squeal unless the padding is worn down to the metal. Could be other cases such as temperature but that’s just my theory
