Thanks for the welcome! It's pure stock right now, but here are some pics. I'll take some better ones if I get a chance this weekend.








Edit:

Here is what I was driving previously, heh.

I sure did, it was going to rain pretty heavily the week after I got my Si so I went ahead and ordered the visors. They work pretty well. Thanks! I want to get 35% tint all the way around (don't want any harassment from cops).

Yes indeed! That Lumina lasted me through college and a little longer. Got a decent job so figured it was about time for a decent car. Thanks!

Just added a Skunk2 shift knob, I didn't expect much but there is a noticeable improvement in shifting smoothness and the general feel of the shifter is much better. Might upgrade to a short shift at some point.

I love driving twisty roads so I wanted something with sport handling and enough power to keep me happy but also something that would be a reliable DD for years. The other cars in my short list were RX-8, Mazdaspeed 6, Mini Cooper S, RSX, and 350Z/G35. In the end, the Si won for reliability and FWD.
