It should be said the upgrades are also available from selected Honda dealers and other tuning specialists not just through Torque Developments Plc.

Such as Avonvale Honda for example?
Branches at Coventry, Stratford upon Avon, Northampton and Solihull. Not forgetting full servicing, new and used sales and bodyshop services. Go and see us them right now for a great deal.

The rear wing looks good from the front 3/4 picture and breaks up the awkward rear end styling. From the photo of the rear where the fast and furious style overhangs are more visible it just looks too aftermarket to be serious.

Exhaust and wheels look aftermarket or even afterthought too.

Mugen charge way too much for their products, far better to choose an alternative parts company that caters for honda tuning.

£1500 for an exhaust system for the CRZ is high, should be looking at about £500 for a good quality one.

[quote every thing you say is right]wheels look aftermarket or even afterthought[/quote] Yeah, they designed the car and then thought uhhhhh...........maybe we should put wheels on it! You aren't very smart, are you?

Umm, looks a bit strange on the rear arch from a front 3/4 view... bigger wheels to fill the arches a little more or lowered another 10mm???

however i still want one

The world renowned Kazunori Yamauchi creator of Gran Turismo talks about the CRZ in the upcoming GT5 game, he thinks it would be good with a turbocharger, is that a hint for Honda perhaps?

see this interview, plus an amusing review of a solar panel car/bike at the end.
