  1. 2019 Civic Si Coupe / Sedan Specs and Pricing Released

    It's not that easy, or myself (and many, many others on these forums) would have done that a long time ago. Remember the car's computer talks to the HU, so you just can't add an aftermarket radio.
  2. A reality check for distracted drivers, and a thank you to Honda

    Thank you. We did pick up another car last weekend but she went with a 2019 Accord Sport 2.0T 6MT. We drove a 2019 Civic Si coupe and the 2.0T Accord. The Accord won because she "wanted a practical car with a sporty side, rather a sporty car with a practical side." At our age that makes...
  3. A reality check for distracted drivers, and a thank you to Honda

    Thank you both for the kind words. I wanted to check in and give an update. The police report (finally!) came out last week.. Witnesses confirmed what we already knew; the other driver was distracted and never touched the brakes, hitting the rear of my girlfriend's Civic at approximately 60...
  4. A reality check for distracted drivers, and a thank you to Honda

    Thank you all for your kind words. We're both working from home today. She's doing fairly well for being about 24 hours out of a major accident. She's pretty sore, but that's to be expected. It's much better than the alternative, that's for damn sure. I did the same to someone not too long...
  5. A reality check for distracted drivers, and a thank you to Honda

    Thank you. Yes I agree, I've been saying that all day. I couldn't care less about the car... it can be replaced. A loved one, on the other hand, cannot.
  6. A reality check for distracted drivers, and a thank you to Honda

    At 6:51 AM EST this morning, I got a phone call from my girlfriend. She was on her way to work and she doesn't call me often at that time, so I was pleasantly surprised to see her on the caller ID. I picked up the phone and heard her say the words that no one ever wants to hear: "I was in an...
  7. Shaking my head

    I think the OP's point is being missed... it's understood that people who race have to warm up their tires. We're not talking about racing. We're talking about not buying a used performance car because of what the video shows. Regardless of whether the owner was doing a burnout because he was...
  8. Goodbye (well... sorta) and thank you to my fellow 10th Gen Si enthusiasts

    Thanks! The Si still lives on; remember my girlfriend bought it so it's still parked at our house. And trust me, she's an aggressive driver so it will be thoroughly enjoyed!
  9. Does the Si have "Rev Hang"?

    It's not rev-matching. It's rev hang for sure, and awful/annoying.
  10. Goodbye (well... sorta) and thank you to my fellow 10th Gen Si enthusiasts

    Just wanted to drop in and say (sorta) goodbye to my fellow CivicX forum friends. Yesterday I picked up a new 2018 VW Golf R. I had to drive to MD to get it, but got a pretty good deal on a car that's rarely discounted. I say "sorta" goodbye because my girlfriend bought my '17 Si coupe. So I...
  11. PSA: Please secure cargo when in an open-bed truck

    Thanks very much. Not understanding the vitriol at my post; plenty of other people post "my wheels got stolen" or "I was in an accident" and they don't get barraged by "this is an Si forum" replies. I don't get it but I expected as much... it's a public forum after all. I've got everything...
  12. PSA: Please secure cargo when in an open-bed truck

    Thank you. Glad you were OK and avoided the accident. Hopefully the other driver was OK too. I remember something similar happening while I was in my Jeep. I have an '03 Wrangler X. No ABS. Was on the highway and something large and cylindrical suddenly appeared in front of me. Jumped on...
  13. PSA: Please secure cargo when in an open-bed truck

    Because I have one and it was damaged...? Got the bumper off. I'm missing retaining clips on the little black bar that's sits under the headlights. Thankfully that's a separate part, and I don't have to buy the entire headlight assembly. I'm also missing retaining clips on the fake black...
  14. PSA: Please secure cargo when in an open-bed truck

    Was on my way home from shopping Wednesday evening around 7:30 PM. Was on a highway, traveling at highway speeds (~75 MPH). A dually pickup truck in front of me ran something over that was in front of him. I only had about 1/2 second to react. Jumped on the brakes and tried to turn away from...
  15. Anyone know how to get both doors of the coupe unlocked from keyless entry?

    Yep, my girlfriend hasn't touched a door handle since the first date. Glad to see there's someone else who realizes chivalry isn't dead...
  16. Google Maps + turn by turn + Android = no worky

    Interesting, I have a Pixel 2 XL and used Navigation extensively this weekend via AA and didn't have any issues. Was there some sort of Google Maps or AA update that perhaps broke things? If so, you could always revert GM and AA back a revision by going to apkmirror.
  17. Fix/Replace Rear Si Bumper??

    Is there any other damage besides the crack? I'm asking because if it were me, I'd replace it but if I didn't have the funds immediately, I'd just let it go. It won't rust since it's plastic.
  18. What motor oil are you Si guys using?

    Agree, I have an '03 Jeep Wrangler that I do all the maintenance I can myself, including oil changes. It's easy, quick, and I for sure don't trust the high-school kids at my local Iffy Lube to do it.
  19. What oil do you use?

    I hear you, and agree as I've heard the horror stories too. But trust me, if I took my Civic Si to Honda to have them change the oil and had some sort of oil-related issues due to their negligence, it will become Mike's Honda if they don't make me whole.
