That's interesting to know.It’s funny, I read a little while ago that the Nurburgring lap in the civic was set by Honda themselves.
They’d taken weight saving measures to ensure the best possible time.
Whereas the a45s was was set by sport auto in the same conditions etc as all the other lap times.
I’m not sure how true that is but thought it was interesting.
I'm certainly very happy with my A45s, especially in real world use over a very wet UK winter.
