Both my local Honda dealerships currently have zero Civic Si. Why? They don't sell. No one wants one. The Civic Type R is not coming. No one will buy it. It would be foolish to import that car. If the Civic Si's are selling, then there would be at least a valid business case to discuss the Type R.

Honda customers are waiting on the next load of Odyssey. Expecting 10-15 on the next shipment. There are only 7 in stock.

Well the current Si is a joke. Historically only about every second model of the Si is good so the next Type-Si may be a fun car.

I think they'll bring it over in smallish numbers. Maybe 5000 a year to see if it will sell.

If Honda can keep it around the price point the Focus ST is selling at it would sell.

This. I just don't think they can. IF it comes over though I'd expect to see them priced at around $40k OTD.......**** THAT. Doesn't the '14 Si already MSRP at $25k?

The latest redesign of the Civic coupe doesn't make me excited one bit. I'm sure the new sedan will exude same feelings. I'm moving on. Going to join my pops and his AMG club.

Non rumor, confirmed for Honda's latest generation direct injected engine used in the new Accord.

Moving away from cast aluminum or steel rocker arms.

Instead using a cheap, rolled/stamped sheet metal rocker. Highly reminiscent of pushrod engines used in the past. Perhaps still being used, somewhere.
