Drove an SI- WOW

I bought an 07 LX coupe 5 speed about two months ago. Yesterday my sales person called me for a follow up call. I mentioned that I should have considered the SI when I bought my car. He made it sound like they may be able to make me a good deal on one.

I went down and test drove a SI sedan. I start her up and love the way the exhaust sounds. Way different then the LX. I was really impressed with the power of the SI. Feels like a different car then the LX. Amazing what the extra HP does. I gotta say I really like the sedan too. I always thought the coupe was the way to go but now I'm not sure.

We go back to run the #'s and and would get totally bent over if I traded in my car. I had rolled some negative equity into my current LX and now I'm really upside down. I went in pretty much knowing that it wasnt going to be possible, but I had fun on the test drive! :vtec:

I'm going to keep my car for at least a year, pay it down and possibly trade up to and SI eventually. I'm still happy with my LX purchase. I got the LX for good gas mileage and wanted to keep my payments low. I think I got the SI bug by spending to much time on this web site! Oh well my LX is still sexy....

That's why I'm scared to go down and test drive one..I'm afraid I'll walk away with it. I really want to wait until the new Accords come out and see how I like those. I really dream for a V6 and navigation.

Yep I've been bitten by the SI bug. Unfortunately it's just a real bad financial move to do it right now. I need to pay down on the LX for a while. As far as the coupe vs sedan thing right now it's a toss up on which I perfer. I like them both for different reasons. I'll be on here drooling until I can get my own SI.

Nayislsi good point. Maybe they will fix some of the minor problems and even make the car better.
