Front Spring Spacers

Can someone tell me why there are 2 sets of orange spacers on the front coils? Seems strange that Honda would have zip-tied spacers on the front springs.
Has anyone removed them? IMG_0897.jpg

Yes the dealer is supposed to remove them during PDI, they are there for transportation.

Thanks, I was able to find the PDI list and I also noticed the dealer didn’t install the 4 body plugs. I’ve contacted the dealer to get them

Yes. It was! I actually didn’t find it until I had a few hundred miles. The car just didn’t handle like I thought it should. I love my Type-R now!

Same thing happened on my Focus RS, they left the little rubber retainers in there and it was squeaking all the way home.
