Some finer points

2006 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe w/Summer Tires (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
Another great pocket rocket! Great balance of driving fun and practicality. Now a few finer points: The Si isn't a very good freeway driver as the suspension is much stiffer than the regular model and you feel the chinks in the concrete - this wears on the driver after ~30min. Short trips are great esp when turns are involved. Light weight makes handling great. The car isn't as "small" as you may think with room for 4 and a big trunk, but you really notice its height when washing it. Steering is tight/precise but one problem with the leather wrapped wheel is the back spoke covers don't fit right on Si models causing a sharp edge to catch fingers w/ enthusiastic driving or just parking it!
Favorite Features
As stated, handling is wonderful but if the car is weighted with passengers, it loses the performance edge. Nice gauge layout takes only a bit to get used to, then seems natural! 6 speed is smooth, but finding 6th vs 4th gear takes a bit too much effort. The price also makes good value w/o markups!
Suggested Improvements
Fix the steering spoke covers on leather wrapped wheel so I can let the wheel smoothly slide through my hands during turns - something the car begs to do! Everything else is nicely balanced and needs no change. Finally, to the buyer: shop carefully since markups vary and will affect perceived value.
