    The new 6 is nothing special. If it was the EURO or JDM version then we are talking. One of the versions that we do not get has a 200+ hp turbocharged engine. The one we have here is just a normal 4 door. The thing that sucks about a new car is that the only thing going for it is that it has no miles on it and well is new. It is slow as hell of the lot but it still cost a shit load of money.

    What do those things go for?
    What year is your si?

    If it is a 5th gen then i say keep that, and with the money that you were going to spend, have a shop build you a beast (or you do it yourself) Calesta had some shop build him a b20vtec for 6k, talk to him about that. Then with the other money that you were going to spend on the car (20k right?) impove the suspention, brakes, wheels and tire. If you still want to spend some money, do weight reductions, (CF hood, fenders, stuff like that) and then paint them (dont leave cf stuff black paint them so they match your car) and maybe some interior stuff like improved seats, and stero. If you put that money towards your car, you will fly by any new car.

    There's actually MUCH to be said for getting a new car... with all the money I have in the Civic, it's nice and fast, but it's still an old car. I wouldn't want to give it up, but I do want a new car.

    I haven't driven the new 6, but one of my friends has- and he really likes it. He autocrosses and road races, so he knows a thing or two about drivability. It's not going to be as nimble as a Civic, but it's still more enjoyable than most of the sedans out there in its class. Go hit up a dealer and try it out- you just might like it.

    Otherwise, spending tons of cash on your Civic is still fun. It IS a money pit though.

    do you ever listen to old people, if Gabe says "Back in my day, it snowed every day in the summer and we had to walk to school naked uphill both ways" then it is probally true. Respect your elders :lol: :D

    Is he older? I doubt it. :p :D

    I thought he was talking about Mazdas, not cars in general... I figured Mazda's quality has actually gone up a notch, along with the rest of the auto industry. Well, maybe not Daewoo.

    :D :lol:

    Well honestly- not much of Daewoo's stuff is good, no matter what market they're in. They constantly make the cheapest of the cheap... and it shows in their quality. Ever seen a Daewoo car back out of a parking spot and have the front suspension collapse? I have... I winced a little when my girlfriend's parents got her sister a Daewoo DVD player for Christmas.

    THe new Mazda 6 is an awesome car as long as it has the 6cyl engine. The suspension on it is pretty bad ass for a sedan. Go test drive one, you'll be impressed.

    220hp y0!

    Why get the mazda 6 when there's the Altima and 7th Gen Accord. Both of which are faster and most likely built better. :)

    5.3? :blink: That's faster than a 350z. How'd you time it?
    Definitely a VERY nice car though. :)
