Curious to hear your thoughts.

The question is: do you think the willingness of many 9th gen Civic owners to use 8th gen parts is slowing the development of the generation-specific aftermarket? After all, if the current parts are good enough, why spend the time and money to develop more?

i dont think so.
i think the slow economy, plus after-market manufacturers not knowing what honda plans to do with the 'refresh', has caused the delay of aftermarket parts.
plus, honda has numerous variations of the civic in all countries/markets.

I think mostly the same thing. Shitty economy and uncertainty with Honda. Just curious what others think.

I can also think of a couple examples where companies said f*** it, use the 8th part, it's good enough.

Maybe lack of Flashpro is contributing as well? I mean, a lot of the mods people wanna do won't do much without it. At least as far as I know.
