What's more important to you, fun or economy? The Si is more fun. No doubt about it. It's also a bit more expensive to insure and to run. You'll have to run at least 91 octane. That means $2-3 more per fill up. No big deal there. And it'll get around 25-30 MPG, which is probably less than you are getting from your EX. So increased gas price and lower MPG will run you about $10 more a month depending on how you drive. Is the fun factor worth $10 a month? Most would say yes!

if your payments will be the same... the increased price of gas going to Si means nothing because it wont be much different

DO IT!!!!!!!!!

My 06 lx did about 400 miles highway and my si does about 400 also. depending on how you drive, you can do 30/40mpg on a si easily. Only difference now would be the switch from regular to premium gas. My si sedan cost only $10 more a year in insurance over my 06 lx coupe.

If you get an RR si sedan, you will get more ass. Its a scientific fact.

It is so hard to get 30/40 mpg on the Si.

It is too much fun. :vtec:

I'm amazed at people that are able to get 40 MPG. I recently did a 500 mile trip. All thruway miles. No A/C. No passengers or extra weight. Cruising speed varied between 65 and 75. 34 MPG was the best I could get.
