the sts is nice but they are very different cars. id go with the si only becuase its more nimble and its a 6speed, fun car to drive rather then a boat. even though im sure an sts can hand an si its ass in a race. i dont care.

__________________

Well I didnt ask you to buy the car. Those are just the two cars I have my eye on right now. I want the si because it will be a fun sporty car to drive. The sts I know is a total oppisite when compared but is still a great and elegant car, and that motor is not weak by any means. And the modding would be a totally differnt expiernce on both cars... With the si I would probably do all performance mods and rims. With the sts it would be all show(witch I have never tryed but still seems like fun....Altough these are two totally diferent cars these are the cars I have chosen to narrow down my selection to. Now altough the sts may not be everyones cup of tea that is no reason to talk ****...^^^^....To everyone else thank you for your responses...:)

Sorry if that was harsh, I just dont see one thing common between the two cars besides the fact that they both ride on 4 tires...

My first reaction was a laugh as I was thinking WTF? Who could compare a grandpa 4-dr car and a pocket rocket sport compact coupe?

I hope you buy the Caddy...

I tend to wonder why anyone would compare the two cars too, I would call the STS a successful grandpa car :)

Anyway, STS's run about 40-50 grand ($47,000 for the V8 RWD and $50,000 for the V8 AWD), why not look at a CTS-V ($49,000), far better car in every aspect and people generally don't call any car that shares a drive train with the vet a grandpa car. PLus you get the 6-speed manual, although not as nice as the one in civic, it's still a good tranny for putting the 400 hp down.

Actually a used sts(one year old) with 20k miles runs around 28 give or take a couple grand( I probably should of stated that I planned on getting the sts used if I decided on it..Ops). The reason I dont look at the cts is I just dont like the looks of it even though the styling in similar the cts looks squished to me' thats why I prefer the sts. That and the sts is just more car.. And I know it's a wierd comparison but those are the two cars I want, granted both for totally different reasons. Oh and if I was to chose the sts I,d go with the rwd.. No need for awd in socal really...

Why ask something like this on this forum? Everyone here is going to have a bias and go for the civic.

I ask on this forum because I own a 03 civic and have been on 7th gen since Ive had it. That and I very well might end up with another civic although this time an 06'si instead of an 03'ex. I to am biased towards the civic. It is a great car. But if you were to test drive the sts you would probably think it is also a great car just in a different way.

Yeah that really is one large neagative with the sts:mad: But then again thats the only reason I'd be able to afford a 1 year old sts.

Well, if you wait another year, you could prob. trade your `03 Civic straight up for the Caddy...

Resale is TERRIBLE on caddy cars...

That alone will keep me from ever buying a caddy...

There are a lot of other RWD sedans I would choose around $30g's...

Usually you dont get as good of an interest rate on a used car, so though you might have to spend a little more, your payments might not be that much higher in the long run...

G35 Sedan 6-speed (31,050)
325I 6-speed (30,900)
IS250 6-speed (31,300)

Those are just MSRP's too, surely you can get at least $2g's off. Well maby the G35, the BMW and the Lexus are all new for this year, so they might be "hot" for 6 months or so...
