What up guys? I went to the chicago auto show this weekend and saw the new civic si's. I was very disappointed. I thought they looked very ugly. Maybe i'll get used to them but i doubt it. I'm not really a big fan of hatchbacks. And i don't know about the shifter being where it is. Kind of like where the radio is located. I think that may get tiring.

I was talking to a guy there though that works there he was telling me that they could run low 14's to high 13's stock. I'm not too sure about that. I think he just trying to convince me to get one because he overheard me talking about the RSX and how i want one and he works at a honda dealer.

Whatever, just my opinion!

thats bs its only got like what 160 bhp? thats not even worth it. the new sentra se-r spec-v has 175 bhp and thats still not able to reach the low 14 sec mark.

and yes i know they're not the same class of car, but yet the honda dealer says they are :D

and the se-r spec-v is like 3 g less.

i hate the new civic ... too rounded ... i don`t think the new civic will be a big success ... and also domestic manufacturers are changing models to keep up with foreign competition .. so that could also change the scene.

They are sick looking....

I wonder what designers at Honda have been smoking, snorting, or shooting up the last few years. First of all, they stopped manufacturing the Prelude. Secondly, they redesign the CR-V and make it look like sh*t, and now the Civic looks like something that came straight outta my ass. Atleast they kept the Accord looking half decent, well atleast in my eyes.

No thanks man. I never wanted the civic. I was just commenting. I think i'm going to just get an RSX.

you want to get the RSX or RSX Type S, if you want to go faster, then you can also think about WRX .... i think the price is just similar as RSX Type S
