hello,

I just came from the Honda dealership

BTW current vehicle: 2001 Audi A4 Avant Quattro 1.8T (170bhp)

I test drove both vehicles and I must say out of the 5 cars I've test driven (06 VW GTI, 06 Cobalt SS S/C, 06 Pontiac G6 GTP coupe, 06 Civic SI, 06 Accord EX-L V6 MT)

1) I'm extremely weiry bout leasing a american car. I have so much doubt on it

2) Cobalt SS flies

3) went to G6 forum and nothing but problems with the G6, though I love the body

4) VW GTI is a beast, the power to weight, picks up like no tomorrow, HID with auto level

5) the 06 civic SI screams to be b*tch smacked, I love the sound

5a) the civic SI is WAYYY more fun to drive and the NAV is great feature. the audio system is just blows my bose away.

6) the 06 accord ex-l is more luxious, On par if not better than current vehicle

1) 2006 civic SI

Well they are 2 different cars. If you want luxury then go with the Accord. If you want fun go with the Si.

My last car was also an 01 Audi A4 1.8T Q but I had the sedan with the celebration package on it. I went with the 06 civic ex coupe/Nav because it was fun to drive. I would have got the Si but i got my car in Ocotober before honda had a release date for the Si. I have no complaints with the car although I still think I might have been better off with the accord V6 6Speed coupe. Really this is all your decesion but with the cars you listed you really cant go wrong, I would go for either one of the Honda's or the GTI ;)
