so i just picked up an 08 SI, I love it! i used to be kind of anti honda im a former sr20 swaped 240sx and doge srt-4 owner, i acually traded in the srt-4 for the civic. ill will admit the the srt-4 was faster, but i dont think that matters much. the civic is so sleek and comfortable and you cant beat the sound of vtec kickin in. im a changed man!
