    The white Fit is hot. Did you see Street Tuner Challenge on Speed? Skunk2 did a blue Fit with an all metal widebody, it was VERY hot :)

    I hate the look of the fit as with the Xa

    In fact there's only one car I like that falls into the (cheaper) area of cars

    The fit and Xa wouldnt look so bad if they weren't so tall, friggin mini minivans

    I wish the fit would come in a 2-door version, but I'm sad to say that the fit looks way better than the current civic.

    Im really starting to come around to the Fit's. The sports with 16's and a .5-.75 inch drop looks perfect (to me). Index of / has tons of pics of fits, although i think you got the last picture from there..

    Part of me is telling the other part to get a fit..... then when mounts come out for a k20, do that. hehe I drove a new civic si and i couldnt get over the 18 foot long dash board, i wish they had a fit on the lot...

    Fit's are awesome, i've seen a few around town and i like them more and more each time i see one.

    Take the money from a Fit + engine swap and buy a TSX.

    Fit + engine swap would handle better and be faster than a TSX.

    I'm glad some of you are coming around- I've liked the Fit since day 1, and after seeing a Jazz with all Mugen hardware in Thailand a year ago- I do have to say that they can look pretty hot. The Yaris hatchbacks are looking good too.

    I don't doubt that but it would still be a mini minivan.
    Rabbit FTW =)

    I like the fit, without the decal that would be really clean looking.

    The yaris does nothing for me. Interiors are a big deal to me, and the Yaris' center gauges blows and i just dont like the way it looks. The Fit's interior looks much better.

    ooo led tails..

    Shame the xA and the Fit are 4 door only now. The Yaris isn't though.

    Better econoboxes than those from the past:
    323 GTX
    Omni GLH
    Corolla FX16
    3rd or 4th gen Civic
    Starlet

    All of these have the easy and cheap capability of housing these cars, even in looks.

    Heh, theres a 323 GTX for sale near my house. If reliability wasn't such a problem, I'd buy it quick. It's also red, and badly faded.

    I remember seeing a 323 GTX for sale on ebay a while back with 33k orig miles on it.

    Don't forget the 91' Civic Si, and the Mirage/Colt turbo wagon.

    Well, in US models, I forgot the newer Mits hatches. The old colts were kinda cool. I still always liked the Vista cruiser.

    And show me the GTX, dammit. I'll handle fading paint and "reliability" issues for you, pussy. :)

    Also, if the Ford Ka comes to the US (Like they keep promising) then it'll be a bad ass little ride. You can drop a Cossie into them.

    That car will never make it here.

    first off it sells well over seas, that means for is too stupid to bring it here, since they never bring good selling cars here. also the US people will never have it, not only is it from over seas, but it also kills birds and cats. :eek:
