2006 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Until I started researching the new Si, I never thought that Honda Civic would be my dream car! Bought my new rocket on 12/23/05. One short test drive was all it took to fall in love with Si. Sitting in the cockpit you feel like you're in a high tech video racing game with all the digital gauges, shift light, and ambient red lighting. Build quality inside and out is excellent giving the car a feeling more like that of a $30K car rather than $20K. You can hear and feel high-performance as soon as you turn the key. There's plenty of power at low RPMs for town driving but get up around 6,000 RPM and Si hits a new level of excitement!!! It has the growl of a rabid beast and flies!!! Availability of the new Si is scarce... production is only 15,000 for the first year. I was very lucky but these are very hard to find, especially without a dealer mark-up. Of course the low production means that this will be a car of iconic and collectable worth. The car itself is near perfection.
Too many to name but power, handling, styling, and amenities to name a few... you get a sweet 6-speed MT very similar to the S2000, standard sun/moonroof, amazing audio system with subwoofer and aux. jack for your IPOD... and the list goes on... you've got to drive one to truly appreciate the Si.
