    Has anyone actually driven the new Civic SI Coupe yet? I'm going to this weekend but I don't know what to expect cuz I've heard mixed reviews about it. It looks super sportier than any Civic I've seen in a long time though. I saw some cool pics here http://sema.honda.com but is it fast?? :D

    I'm under the impression that the car hasn't been released for sale yet, will it be out by this weekend?

    lol...I just got done watching that with my gf.

    Today I was going to the local honda dealership to pick up some parts for my new car and a new civic sedan pulled up behind me. I was quite surprised by it for sure. I like the way the front end looks...it looks pretty mean. the back isn't all that great though.

    I drove an '05 civic coupe.. But I think you're talking about an '06...


    The 05 felt fat. It felt like it had power, but too much weight to drag around with it... Of course, I'm usually in a crx...

    So far the most up to date info site for the 06 SI is www.vtec.net - They have dyno charts of the one they have

BTW I do work for Honda but was under the impression that it would be available to test drive this weekend cuz the new ones come out today but I guess the SI isn't commn out till November so I guess I will just have to wait! Did they give away a 06 SI on Rock Star? I missed it... :ph34r:

    Holy shit! Honda had better start playing catch-up with the RSX, or they've just killed a model line.

    210whp completely stock... damn...

    the specs on the 1.8 in the sedan/coupe look impressive. 10.5:1 compression ratio yummm
