    Cbp?

    Hi all. I'm new-ish to the forum and have been trying to figure out what CBP stands for concerning the Honda Civic. Can anyone tell me what this means? All I've been able to find on it when I do a Google search is California Border Patrol LOL.
    Any help would be rad. I also noted somewhere in my searches other designations for the 9th generation Civic. If it helps I own a '12 LX coupe with the R18Z engine. That's about as much as I've figured out.

    Thanks
