My long wait is over

I've been hanging around the forum for a couple months, taking in a lot of information and posting here and there.. But I can finally say I'm an Si owner. After months of going from dealership to dealership trying to get the best deal, I finally picked up my 2011 CBP FG2 yesterday morning. I couldn't be happier with the car... Drives like a dream, shifts so smooth and took literally 2 minutes to get used to the new clutch/trans. This baby was worth every penny. And as a bonus, after some negotiation I ended up getting a helluva deal on a 100k B/B warranty & Lifetime P/T warranty.
A little backstory.. I was driving a 2009 Corolla, 5 speed. All it was good for was gas mileage and getting better at driving a standard... otherwise the car was a complete waste of money. No power, a poor feeling clutch, and an awful sounding engine, and that's just putting it nicely. Made me want to every time I drove it.
Needless to say I can't even compare the two cars. I took a couple pictures after taking it off the lot, just front and rear ends.. Didn't have much time yesterday and it looks like the roads will be nice and sandy the next couple days, So ill post more after her first washin.

Since the car is new, the adhesive will be very easy to get off. Literally, I didnt need fishing line on mine; just grabbed the corner of the badge and slowly pulled it off, then just got the rest off with my finger.

Popped that Civic badge off this morning. Took a little more muscle with the floss than I thought it would, but it looks nice and clean now. Didn't look like it needed any goo gone when I was done, all of the rain will give it a bit of a natural bath. Ill get some nice pics over the weekend. As for mods that cost actual money... I will be waiting until I get some tax money back (Sales tax hit my funds pretty hard) lol. I'm very pleased with the car stock though
