2008 Honda Civic MUGEN Si MUGEN Si 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

With just only 2 weeks with the Mugen SI I'm completely in love with this car. Not only does it get attention from everyone but it's a blast to drive. If your a Honda enthusiast, this is definitely the car to own. It drives like a dream with a stiff cornering when you want it but comfortable enough to drive in long trips.

2008 Honda Civic MUGEN Si MUGEN Si 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Bought this car 4 months ago because of its eye candy appeal. Car has been very reliable with zero mechanical problems since purchase. The only issue I've had was the driver side sun visor totally fell apart. For nearly 30 g's I would expect more performance...and for the weak performance I would expect better than 26 mpg. This car owns in the mountains!


Favorite Features

interior, exterior looks, material on the seats, handling handling handling!


Suggested Improvements

add supercharger or turbo to increase power and make it worth the price

Review

I loved the Mugen from the first time I saw it on the showroom floor -- I knew I had to have it. Sure, it's way more than the base Si, but a test drive of the two will let anyone know that the money was well spent on the suspension and wheels/tires. The looks I could care less about, but the handling is absolutely superb! Ride is harsh, as you would expect from a sports car, but the gas mileage is amazingly good (about 26 mpg in 100% city for me, even with "spirited driving"). The only cons for me are the lack of nav and the fact that it's a car that must be parked "out of the way" so as to avoid vandalism/theft.


Favorite Features

Suspension! Handling and QUICK steering. The engine LOVES to be revved high-up! Great gas mileage, even when driven hard. Fit and finish are great, as with every other Honda. The Fiji Blue Pearl color is beautiful in real life.


Suggested Improvements

Should have had factory-installed nav. Magnetic suspension would have helped with harsh ride. Seats seem like they will wear fast in the lumbar area.

Review

Perhaps a little expensive for a Civic, but once you drive it, you completely forget. It's a super fun to drive pocket rocket that looks awesome and works great as a daily driver.


Favorite Features

Very unique looking, even when compared to stock Si models.


Suggested Improvements

The insurance companies have the Mugen Si as a separate line item. I guess it doesn't pass as a 4-door sedan.

Review

First of all the only one i even considered is the mugen. Well why because i wont see hundreds of them on the road also because of the .92 g's on the skid-pad stereo rocks way better than what you think you would get for the money blows my 2008 vw r32 stereo out the water but let's get to business this car handles great. The eighteen inch mugen rims look awesome in the graphite look against the fiji blue paint which is by far the best color on the civic si. Great gas mileage so far about 27 mpg. Wonderful exhaust note especially when it hits vtec. About as fun as it can get for 28k which is a bit steep for any civic but i know the resale will be great go ahead buy one you will love it addictive


Favorite Features

Handling,great clutch and shifter,exhaust note in vtec, stereo, back seat space, gas mileage, the mugen body kit, resale value


Suggested Improvements

More power, better seats, steep window sticker price ahhhhhh thats about it
