    that article looks like something written by someone who is 20 years old and got data off of honda-tech to write it.

    :thumbsdown:

    It almost makes me want a civic........however i am a fan of the 02-05 Si (SiR), since i see a few around here and i do like them most with the trim kits.

    I used to own an em1, and still regret selling the thing. Though it should have come with a b18c1 from the factory, it was still the best car in it's class at the time. I still gawk at them when I see a clean example driving down the road.

    It's too bad Honda leaves the development of the si to the Japanese, otherwise I'd be all over trying to work on it.

    trust first instincts. usually only bad things grow on you. cabin fever. i still hate the integra round headlight front end.

    After 2001 Honda has gone down hill in the looks department for me. The new Si's can look good, the RSX's definitely could have looked better as far as it being an integra and all. The K20's kick ass but i dunno i feel like they are missing something. Like many of us i prefer my 19 year old DA over a many new Honda's. A "new" car to me is like something in the mid-late 90's or early 2000's lol. If i were to get a newer Honda it would a good condition 94-01 Integra GSR.
