    Lol dude you suck have whos ever buying you the car buy me one too. lol your lucky man but the 08 si are really nice and way more luxurious than the s2k but the s2k is probably a little faster but the 08 si will have better mpg. They both have there ups and downs but its your choice. The girls will dig probably the s2k more but dont get a boring color like grey get black or blue or white.

    I thought they did away with the Si coupe for 08. It's a 4 door Si as far as I know.

    s2k isnt' a chick car. it's a performance car. depends on what you want to do with it. if it's a dd, get the civic. if you are going to do any road or autox, get the s2k. i would get the s2k myself.

    what are you going to do with the car? dd/road/drift/rally/passengers/travel. it will make the advice easy if you tell us what you are going to do with it and what your budget is.

    Dude honestly I doubt he will have a budget limit, his parents are buying him a car lol but obviously they wont buy him a Mercedes, BMW, Lamborghini, Ferrari basically none of the Exotic or High class cars. Mostly C and B Class cars is what im guessing here. The STI's are really torque and fast but like get_nick said. What is your gonna be your driving purpose???? Daily Driven, Rally, Racing, Drifting...ect:confused:

    edit: just saw his age. if your parents are buying you a car, they should get the civic. reasonable power, good gas mileage, cheapER insurance, very reliable. just my .02

    if you are building a drift car, just get a 240sx. best drift car out there. s2k's aren't good drifters. the weight is almost perfectly balanced.

    +1 on that. a 240sx is just an awesome car because they are relatively cheap to buy and modify, and are a hella lot more fun than any fwd car. Have you looked into what its gonna cost to insure a new car be it a civic si or an sti at your age? Its insane.

    C and B class cars? Ok dude, you've been playing a little too much Forza...

    Seriously? :slap:

    If you actually do want to drift, then the S2000 is your only choice. You need rear-wheel drive to drift, tard. But, like the others said, the S2K is so well-balanced from the factory that it's hard to drift it without some serious modifications.

    I think you're a dumb kid that has no clue about much of anything at this point. Just get the Civic. It's the cheapest, safest, and most economical choice.
