My wife and I were debating between an 09 Fit Sport or a 06+ Civic. This seemed to be a better deal. I'm amazed how it drives. Not my first Honda. My DD is a 03 Element. I also have a 92 Integra w/b16 and a 95 gsr sedan. So this is being added to the collection for the wife to drive. I have a set of si shoes I will be putting on once the weather gets a little better here in Idaho. Thanks!

So far I've added tint, si rims, 225/45/17 Kumho Ecsta ASX, JDM r18 valve cover.





Yummy! Rare, probably only one in Idaho, JDM Honda Stream r18 vc!

I'm new to 8thcivic (just joined) and was thinking of picking up an 06+ civic as well. Driving an RSX, but wanting to pick up an SI. It's so tempting! Enjoy your car!

Good choice over the fit. The civic provides much more value for the dollar. Anyhow, i hope you know the SI wheels dont fit without a little backyard mechanic work. You might want to look for a different set of oem wheels

Yeah I've done my research on modifying the front brake. Not to big of an issue for me. I already tried them on and they barely touch so I will just need to sand off a little of the bracket. I have backyard mechanic in me, it comes naturally!
