Bleh New Texas Owner

Hello everyone, my name is Ryan and I recently picked up a '07 NHBP Honda Civic Si to use as a daily driver. It replaced a tired and worn '08 Mazda3, which was incredibly boring to drive.

I must say, it's an absolutely fantastic car for a front wheel driver. I'm coming from an s2000 and a miata ( that I use for autox/hpdes) but the fa5 is just as fun to drive, plus it gets exceptional gas mileage. Besides the s2000, I've owned three civics and an integra so you can say I'm a bit of Honda fan, just not of anything they have built lately.

I bought her to commute (50 miles per day) but am definitely looking to get a bit more power. Anyone selling a kpro and i/h/e?


Anyways, I'm looking forward to interacting with you guys and finding out more about this great car.

Coupes are the bomb man! Why u want to trade? Sedans have more options when it comes to exterior dressup like different bumpers and all.

Yes, I have an fa5. Sorry, but I have zero interest in the coupe.

I wouldn't have even considered the si if it didn't come in a 4 door. I need it since it's my daily!

GL trying to find someone to trade you though man!

Yeah, I still frequent the site a lot. Any advice on local places to get flashpro?

Another new si sedan owner here from Texas. Personally I do not like the way the coupes look at all. But that's just me.


Signatures ?????? We don't need no stinking signatures !!!!!

As far as FlashPro goes...they can be had for about $600 new which is pretty decent price online...Go Power has been having groupbuys back to back to back (They are on their 6th groupbuy i think?) I would check that out if i were you. They are a sponsor on this site.
