Can't blame a dealer for making the most of what they've got . . . someone bought an SI and had them put HFP wheels on it, so they had extra wheels and tires laying around.

I think as long as you don't try to market yourself as an Si, it's fine. How many of us (myself included) have an Si grille on our *X? I really like the look. But I'm not trying to look like an Si. I just think all Civics should have come with grilles like that.

Agreed 100%.

I wouldnt call it an 'Si look-a-like' unless it has Si badges on it.

Si grille (top half) is color matched to the cars main color. the bottom half is a greyish color. and sits flush on the top of the front bumper

The EX/LX/DX coupe grille is a dark graphite color all around. and doesnt sit flush against the top of the front bumper.

The EX/LX/DX sedan grille is a dark graphite color on bottom and chrome on top half. and doesnt sit flush against the top of the front bumper.

Exactly. The Si wheels are nicer... Cant blame a dealer for either A) selling it that way or B) a person buying them.

Someone on here recently had his Si wheels stolen. The theif probably put them on their car. Could be a 8thgen or any other kinda ride

An si is beautiful si owners should take that as a complement but yeah i say an si grill is ok if u take out the si badge dont put the si rims and the spoiler the spoiler is what makes the coupe look really nice i aint gonna lie.

a local dealership does the same thing
I see tons of coupes with the Si wing

and the sedans get the "mugen" treatment with replica mugen wings and HFP kit
