I'm sure like a lot of people on this site, they get a little stoked when they see another Si. I have a Fiji Si coupe, so I kind of stand out. I've seen 4-5 of my same car and all of them have been random people that could care less that I drive the same car! I roll up hoping they will look over and be like oh snap another Si, but they just keep driving along like nothing is going on. I've also seen a few Si's with 40 year old women driving them who look like they belong in a Cadillac or Buick.

Anyone else have this happen to them fairly often? I've only met 2 Si owners who have been enthusiasts! I've seen up to 5 in one day :( So many no fun owners.

Maybe they bought their Civic Si's because it was the best bang for the buck. I know a lot of Si owners that don't plan on modifying their car because to them, a car is just a means of transportation from point a to point b. They're just not interested in making their car unique and I understand that. We on the other hand, are lucky to be part of this community where we can share the vast extent of our knowledge of our vehicles. To be honest, they're just missing out on the world possibilities their car possesses.

Indeed.. I could understand this more so just because Vette's are sex on wheels and are moreso a status symbol than a Civic.. I don't get why someone would pony up for the Si unless they were hell bent on the exterior extras. Although, I have seen Si rims on a R18 sedan.. Unsure if the dealer sold them or if he bought em off an Si owner.

I get that a lot here in Pittsburgh too...I see one or two every week on the commute to or from work. They never even look my direction. I pulled up past one guy in an ASM FG2, gave a quick honk and wave, and he proceeded to flip me off. WTF.

<- r18 owner, I love my 30+ mpg nowadays, but it's my daily driver to and from work/etc.

I don't know, maybe they just wanted it just because some dealer told them it was the top of the line civic. Either that or a relative actually owns it and they were just driving it for the day for them.

yes alotta people buy civics b/c of the "bang for the buck" and a point a to point b car. but i dont think ppl would spend the extra money to buy an Si if they were not enthusiasts. i have an Si and i dont plan on modifying it at all, yet i LOVE the drive my car and SAFELY catch up to another Si to say hi.

My stock GG FG2 is my daily drive and I'm always in love everytime I put the keys in and hear the beep beep of my radar det. going off. I would love to put money into her but just got married and moving into an apartment out of the barracks cost $$$. But yeah I've seen a few Si from people up here in the Watertown, NY Fort Drum area that just seem to have got their car to street race anyone and everyone and all around seem to just have a bad attitude. When I see another Si I'd prefer to drive beside them or behind them in harmony. Not hear them grind 3rd and shoot off.

Although I do love :vtec: :)

I've seen several other Si's / reg civics out and only one person has cared. Most of them are mid-20 year old guys who just ignore me and the fact that we share the same car :( I did see a girl around my age with a Silver FA5 about a week or two ago and she absolutely freaked out and started pointing at my car. Think she mighta been with her dad too..
