I've seen a lot of people complain about the ABS. Frankly, I think most of them don't know what they are talking about. ABS is a great feature but it's like anything, you need to know how to use them. I've seen extensive testing with ABS systems and in all but a few instances ABS out perform standard brakes so I have to chuckle everytime someone says they don't like them.HCSiR said:sorry no .. crappy XGTs .. on mine.
Have Pirelli Wintersports ..... so still .... I don't like the ABS .
Read my commentes above. If you are talking about a 6th generation it's a moot question. You can't buy either of them new anymore. If you could still find one at a dealer it would likely work out pretty close in the end but you get to pay all the wonderful tax we have here. So would it be cheaper, probably not.HaM said:so would it be cheaper? ?????
Where did you hear it is only $17K in Canada? The info. I have seen on the net does put the U.S. Si at about $19K, but you can bet it's not going to be that cheap in Canada. Our 1999/2000 SiR's were around $24K, so the new SiR in Canada is going to be around that range.HaM said:im talking about the new 2002 civic SI, over here in US, they over price the Si for 19k but over in canada, its only 17k and i was just wondering of u buy it in canada and get it ship would it be cheaper
Don't forget about 10% taxes and then whatever duty and extra fees they charge you to get it across the border. You just don't walk onto our dealership lots and pay the sticker price. $25,500 + 10% tax + duty will likely equal closer to $29,000 CDN. That is about $18,500 U.S. You do the math, it doesn't take a genious.HaM said:maniac... yes the canada SIR is 25500 but isnt that in canadian money though? 25500 in canadian money is equal to 16,173.02 US money. so it around 3 gs cheaper or is 25500 us money which a highly doubt.
Because they make noise when in operation does not mean they don't work. You hate ABS for what reason? Because they actually help a driver keep their car under control when you stop or because they will stop you faster than non-ABS setups? There are a few instances where not having ABS does get you shorter stopping distances but in each of those cases you can't control the stop.w1ngzer0 said:All i have to say is i hate ABS XD the sound my moms van makes is bbrrrr brrrrr.
