    I *may* have a buyer lined up for my EG EX coupe, and if it goes thru I'll be looking for a replacement for my car only in an EK chassis. Regardless of whether I get an EX or Si, either way I'll be looking to do a motor swap in the EK right away probably B18C, B20Vtec, something (hate B16s). Since the car I have now is an EX, I want to get something with all the same options- all power shit, sunroof, etc... I know both the EK EX and 99-00 Si both have all that kindof stuff, but other than the driveline, are there any other differences between the two? I'm assuming springs/struts are a little firmer on the Si which doesn't matter because stock shit will be ditched for aftermarket stuff either way, etc etc.

    Anyone? [​IMG]

    The Si has rear disc brakes, and the EX has drums...The Si also has a front lip, and a different gauge cluster...

    Other than that, and the color (Si came in Flamenco Black, Milano Red, and Electron Blue, and the EX came in...well, whatever the regular Civic colors were), I don't think there are any differences.

    Also because of what civicious said, the ex is about 200lbs lighter i believe. Mainly because of the motor.

    But an ex would be less on insurance.

    different rims, slightly larger front brakes, shifter... seats aren't different are they? fuck if I know.

    The sway bars are larger I believe.

    If you're going to swap it, don't waste your money on an Si.
