  1. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    Here is a slideshow of some of the pics from the roadtrip...click on the picture for a description. I have hundreds more, but these are 40 that I particularly like. http://www.flickr.com//photos/[email protected]/sets/72157629619416740/show/ I just hit 160,000 miles and the car is still running...
  2. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    Thanks everybody. I appear to have accidentally removed the pics from my picture sharing site! I will repost them shortly.
  3. So long Si, hello M3.

    Civic Si
    Very nice M3. I used to have a 2004 M3 in carbon black with a six speed. It was a great car and got a lot of miles out of it. Sold it for the si eventually since it was quite a bit cheaper to maintain with the high mileage I put on. While using a local shop compared to the BMW dealer saves a...
  4. Wiper blades

    Civic Si
    I have tried the factory ones and the high end rain x ones.....I find very little difference between the two....If it gets the water off cleanly, thats about as good as it is going to get.
  5. Royal Purple Manual Trans Fluid = 3rd Gear fix

    Civic Si
    Hmmm...well I have been using it for years in my other cars without issue. Are you sure these are not engines/trans that wouldnt have blown up anyway? I have used Royal Purple for many years and in a variety of cars...including my 91 Mustang with a 408 putting down 600rwhp, an E46 BMW M3...
  6. Royal Purple Manual Trans Fluid = 3rd Gear fix

    Civic Si
    I have just hit 150,000 miles on my 07 Si sedan and over the past 30,000 miles or so, I began noticing the dreaded 3rd gear notchiness and difficulty shifting....about every 15 shifts or so, it would put up a huge fight going into 3rd gear. I had changed the fluid with the Honda suggested stuff...
  7. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    I checked the oil before and after the trip....no reduction in oil level even after such a long journey....looked like it was ready for an oil change at the end though :thumb:
  8. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    I did motel 6's most of the trip but I did catch a quick nap in the car at a truck stop one of the days....as long as you are in a somewhat safe area, you should be fine.
  9. Most Miles on a Civic Si 2008

    Civic Si
    I thought mine was crazy high since I just hit 140,000 miles on my 07 Civic Si Sedan.....but it appears I am beaten! I have had zero problems with mine...just basic maintainance.
  10. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    Thanks for all the kind words...it was truly an amazing trip. To answer some of the questions... The seats were perfectly comfortable for me and my passenger...at no time did the seats uncomfortable or require any additional cushioning. Fuel was around $1100 of the cost...I dont have the...
  11. 2007 Civic Si A/C Compressor (Needs rebuild)

    Engine & Transmission FS
    I have a 2007 Civic Si AC compressor which I just took out and replaced with a new one. The clutch bearing is going bad so it will operate perfectly for 10 minutes and then not work anymore as the clutch heats up and slips. A basic rebuild kit will get this as good as new or if you simply need...
  12. Getting more miles out of your tank.

    Civic Si
    I would suggest 3 things to get 400+ miles out of your tank regularly as I do... 1. Make sure your air filter is clean 2. Buy some MAF sensor cleaner and give it a quick cleaning now and then 3. Keep it at 75mph or less during highway crusing...and use cruise control when possible Doing these...
  13. Picked on by BMW 325i ....

    Civic Si
    I remember something like that happened to me several years ago...I was driving my 10 second Mustang (91 Fox body with a 408) at the time, but I am a firm believer in racing at the track not the street.....anyway, this idiot kept reving at me everytime we would get to a stop light but I wouldnt...
  14. So with 8ths ever become collectible?

    Civic Si
    Interesting question, but I think it will be several decades before that ever happens....As mentioned, Honda did make a lot of these cars and with modern day reliability it will be a very long time before enough hit the junkyards to make them rare. But there may be a niche market for stock and...
  15. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    Yeah it is truly an amazing road...I suggest everybody try it once in their lifetime. It costs about $15 to get on, but it was totally empty when I was there...and it goes like that for over 300 miles! Heading South it ends near the famous "Tail of the Dragon" so why anybody would ever take a...

  17. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    I put in a little extra air at the start of the trip...think it was around 38 psi....never had a problem and the glued to the road in all weather conditions. Wow...I lucked out then. I guess my being from the other side of the country worked to my advantage.
  18. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    No issues as of yet...still runs like new. Good question! I got a warning when I was in Oregon by going 60 in a 45 zone (speed trap), but they let me off....cop was cool about it when I told him what my route was. But I did see a lot of other people get pulled over for going fast...seems like...
  19. Do the difference engines and body styles have differnent AC compressors?

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Do the different engines and body styles have different AC compressors? First off, I have a 2007 Civic Si Sedan. I am in need of a new AC compressor since my current one is no longer working properly. The Honda dealer quoted me at almost $800 for JUST the part so I will be looking elsewhere to...
  20. The 10,000 mile Si Road Trip

    Civic Si
    Well with the objective of seeing as many parks as possible, I first mapped out all of them....then I eliminated the ones which I wasn't particularly interested in....after that, I basically did "connect the dots" with the map of all the parks I wanted to see and roads I wanted to take (I bought...
