    the '05 Si? That's still the hatch. The new Si coupe isn't supposed to come out till 06 or 07.

    IMO, the new Si kinda sucks. Sure it's a k-series, but it's a neutered K-series. I'd buy a truck.

    machpherson suspension on a FWD = t3h suck.
    k20a3 = t3h suck
    minivan with no sliding door = t3h suck
    ridgeline = t3h suck.

    I am alone in this opinion:


    I love new Civic Si hatches.

    That is all.

    I like them too. I honestly think it has just as much, if not more potential than the previous si coupe. Better block, more torque, but it needs a drop and some nicer rims than comes from the factory.

    I wouldn't touch anything Honda made in the last few years, with a longshot being a V6 manual tranny Accord. Still pretty fugly, though.

    I like everything about the 05 si except that it is big. civics should be <2500lbs and most preferable around 2000lbs with a small wheel base. Bring back the pocket rocket. I'll make the car fast, you (the automaker) make it cheap.

    4800 lbs+ of coil springs & be able to haul 3 lowriders, with about 1000+ added weight on each car bc of all the batteries in the trunk... GRRR


    HEY!!! what about the srt4 Dodge neon? Its priced at around the same price as the Civic Si... I just want something fast if I go with a car... if its a truck, Chevy, or F350... GRRR

    already looked into those, cowboycaddy in the midwest... lots of $$$ though LOL... However, they do have the kits for like 40g's, all you have to do is bring your own truck in... GRRR which is still going to be over 80-100gs...
