Best Bang for Your Buck.

2006 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Prior to this, I would've never considered owning any foreign car... Performance: This car is zippy, even if you're not hitting VTEC. It rockets, very quickly, to 60, and blows most competition away. Comfort: The pseudo-suede seats are comfortable, but I wish they offered a leather option. There is no lumbar support, which I really miss, though the height adjustment is a nice touch. The middle hump in the backseat is slightly uncomfortable. Economy: Good on gas at average 23/32, but requires premium fuel only. Fun to Drive: The best part. Amazing handling (second only to RX-8, that I've driven), great road feel, smooth ride, tight, responsive steering. Amazing short throw shifter.
dual-tier dash w/ digital speedometer, steering wheel radio controls, sunroof, short throw, precise shifter, great handling. Solid interior with few gaps. Great sized steering wheel, which is leather wrapped, red backlighting, antenna is in backwindow, comfy seats.
Provide a leather option on the Si, make fog lights standard, fix the rattles that plague the interior, thicker paint (chips easily/thin), pseudo-suede material may wear/fuzz faster, don't cut corners on the paint under the hood or trunk panel, offer lumbar/power for seats.
