Wow, better than a WRX!!!!

2005 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The shifter is really nice and the feel of the shift engagements are superb, even for a cable shifter linkage. Almost as nice as my friends S2000, which has direct mechanical linkage. The handling is very neutral, and the OEM Michelin tires feel as grippy as the Kumhos Ecsta 712s on my previous WRX. At least, the handling is very similar if not better, than the mentioned WRX. To me, it feels like there is morepower at mid RPM than WOT.
The smaller steering wheel feels nice and the ratio is very good for sporty driving. The shifter is goofy looking but works. The seats are very comfortable.
CD player displays no CD track info at all, none, nada, niltch. Brakes should have more initial bite. A seat that could be lowered would be nice. The RSX Type S motor would be nice.
