In related news - no WRX wagon now either. It's like Americans want to be impractical asshats these days.

My $0.02
Whatever will be will be. It's not exciting for me at all. I think it's cool that the Jap Type R is boosted. That's about the extent of my excitement. If it came to the states, I'd still be the same person. I'd still drink coffee in the morning and take a dump once a day.
I highly doubt anyone in this thread would ever buy one.
Whether it be too expensive or not their style.

Everything is going to be alright.

I'm not going to cry into my bowl of Boo Berries over it, but the upcoming death of the affordable, fun, manual-equipped hatch is a sorry state of affairs to me. Yes, the Type R would not be too affordable (at those prices, I'd probably get the BMW 228i with the track package, honestly) to a lot of people, but it would at least show some life at Honda. Don't forget that today's new hatch would be the 5 years from now swap candidate. Right now, I guess that leaves the Fit as the most likely recipient, and with their center of gravity and dynamics, probably not a very good one.
