Went to try out a new Civic coupe, but also drove the Si. Couldn't leave dealership without it. It's black and has all ground effects spoilers, hence draws lots of attention and comments. I'm 6'1" 240# and it fits better than any car I've had before. I've taken 3 passengers in it on over-night trips and no complaints yet. It begs to be driven hard and fast. I'm constantly trying to find new 2 lane roads to explore. I've more confidence in it's handling than in any other car I've tried. I really like it's styling, inside & out. It's now my favorite toy and I spend a lot of time in it. The best money I ever spent. I'd really like to have another one set up just for racing.
Engine, 6 speed tranny, interior roominess, fine sound system, Honda dependabillity, great price.
