Yeah this grinds my gears. They could have put some effort into the display/animation side. They created a whole anime series around this car and the inside just doesn't standout.Why not make the throwback gauge cluster what's displayed in Normal and Sport mode, and then do a more special display for Sport+?

Partially agree, but I partially think the wording may be more geared towards a comparison with the base Integra. From that POV, they did indeed "remove" the sunroof+center seat for weight savings, as well as implement a more "sportier" digital gauge.What really gets me in these videos is that they imply Acura came up with all these things that are also in the CTR, and I think they're kind of stuck where it looks bad if they reference the CTR and it also looks bad if they don't.
This is why I think a few of the features might be added back in future years, like the memory seats and the rear USB ports. Those are extremely cheap to implement, I bet they were left out due to supply chain issues.It wouldn't surprise me if this thing was a bit rushed to market to take advantage of the still batshit crazy new car market.
I bet supply chain planning happens multiple years in advance, so contracts for the components for the A-spec were set a long time ago. They can't just reassign components to the Type S.The supply chain argument doesn’t make sense to me. The ITS is a relatively low volume trim compared to A-Spec Tech. Surely they could spare a few parts?
