The alloys of the Malaysian version are SUPER HOT! I hope Honda brings the Civic here with these alloys.

Technocrat, it is not the Malaysian version per se. It is simply the latest JDM Civic. Malaysia, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Pakistan and India get this Civic. Some of these markets are yet to receive the facelift. I'm guessing Honda is rolling them out all over Asia at the same time. Minor differences are abound - some markets get the 2.0L 155PS engine, electric power steering...

Improvements will come when Honda raises the car and ruins the driving pleasure or cuts the chassis in half and reduces wheelbase and thereby legroom. Or when cities start sticking to the 60mm height limit of bumps as per the rules. Stiffer suspension may help with the bottoming out issue when fully loaded.

Honda Should atleast put those hot allyos in thetop end versions to differentiate it from the other versions. Current Civic has only one design for S and V models.

Oh Ok I didnt know, I checked Malaysian Honda website as they usually get upgrades earlier than we do.

Anyways by Malysian Civic I meant the Civic currently available in Malaysia

Well, Malaysia is a bit better off than us. They are the only country where the Civic Type-R is sold officially, outside of Japan. They get 95RON in every pump, which will be upgraded to 98RON from next year. Aaaah, a man can dream.

@Technocrat, i Saw these alloys on all the Civics in Singapore and Malaysia,i also noticed a 2.0 badge(if i remember it correctly).These rims look stunning and go well with the overall design of the Civic.

yup - Honda have admitted on the GC issue and worked on it - they say it was the suspension , so expect a harder ride if the stiffer suspension is made available.

I was offered 13.2 lacs OTR (discount + insurance free) on the current Civic AT (as I wanted an auto for City, which they didn't have), but again, its a tad higher than my budget :(
