The title pretty much says it all. The Honda dealer a was telling me that Honda made 200 HFP's (legitimate VINNED Civic HFP's across Canada & the US) Just curious as to how many people actually own one.... I know they only come in two colors, Black and white, but even when i requested a white one, the dealer told me they wouldn't even be able to get their hands on one. They told me to buy a regular Si and buy the bodykits, and package for the car for an extra $7000, and not even have a legit HFP with the suspension package! I felt it was pretty lame! So, i went black, even tho its much hard to keep clean and keep looking pristine

Can anybody contribute?

Yes i understand. If you go inquire about them, you will see that only few of them are legitimately vinned that way. Because of the shortage and the increased demand, dealerships were installing the wheels, body kits and all. Like i said, especially if you see colors other than black and white you'll know they won't be legit. you can also have the ministry of transport look up the VIN #. The computers show it as
"2012 Honda Civic Si HFP Special Edt."

There's a bunch on here from Canada.

I may have the most illegitimate HFP on this site with the suspension that illegally crossed the border, lighting, lips, and wheels awaiting more cash for tires. Only thing I'm missing are the red mats and badges. I wanted legit HFP but couldn't get one for some reason when I got mine.

All of the HFP edition cars were sent to the dealers as a regular production model. We installed the skirts, suspension and wheels as they arrived. Non of the cars were shipped from the factory with the HFP items already installed.

Weird, maybe the dealer lied to me. He told me specifically that the car came like that from Honda, and it was vinned that way... I'll certainly have a chat with him Tomorrow!

I will double check when I get to work in the morning but I also pretty sure that the vin's are no different than regular size models.

I know the Accords had numbered dash plaques that we installed but I don't recall if the Civics did.

Msg me tomorrow anyways, but if thats true then the dealer lied to me. He told me that he got my car from Honda the way it was now. He even made note that the Insurance papers were different because it was not an Si VIN number :(

Now im pissed at him!

I just ran the VIN's for the two cars we did and our parts system only recognizes them as Si coupes.

The HFP package is still available from the dealers. It retails for $4006.00 plus HST. This includes installation but tires are not included in the price.

If someone was lucky enough to get a HFP edition Si the package including tires only added $2700 to the price of the car.

Am I the only legit hfp from the US?
I dont think you are the only 1 from the US with the actual HFP kit- maybe you are the only one on the forum. I thought Honda said they were making 500 HFP models

I confronted the dealer about this today, he assured me that they receive the car on the lot without a single kilometer while it had the HFP package. He told me that he can track the paperwork and show me that the car came this way directly from factory...
From what you guys are saying sounds like he's lieing through his teeth haha
