Mine is just over 1,000 miles.
So far it feels fine, but I can "feel" the clutch does seem weak.
When I do shift spiritedly, I give allowance time to shift due to the rev hang.
I thin shifting this without the finesse would accelerate clutch wear and kill it sooner than the norm.
I had a...
I run a broadway 300mm convex blue tint.
It provides ample glare reduction from headlights at night in my opinion.
And the reduction of blind spots is wonderful.
I also run my side mirrors all the way out.
If you are new to convex mirrors, there is an adjustment period as the point of view...
The Si is actually the second car, used for spirited driving to make the miles count.
Thc daily driver and commuter is my gold on tan Lexus GS300.
It handles it all (commuting, grocery getting, hotboxing, deliveries, etc.)
Mine sits in the garage as well, I use my Si for fun driving and thats where the mileage will go up.
Daily commute I use my gold on tan gs300....blends right in and doesnt garner attention.
To the OP, sorry to see.

If I recline the seat to far back, I am sitting at a 45 degree (understandably so).
However when positioned in a more upright position, it just feels off.
I found a...
I would have preferred it high like the the RSX aspec/Type R.
The pedestal spoiler on the Si sits to low, would have been better off as a decklid.
Go high or go home.
Even better, go wingless.
Also the Si spoiler reminds of the S2000 Cr.
All of those colors are great choices.
Here is my opinion on all of them.
Grey - Urban camouflage, blends in with the streets/concrete. A good compromise between the brightness of white and the darkness of black. Makes me think of area 51 and aliens.
White - Bright, futuristic, fresh, its a...
Perhaps not a modification per say but an upgrade?
My 3m Crystalline Cr 40 film.
No more fishbowl appearance, superior heat rejection/protection for my interior and skin, pirvacy from prying eyes, and a classy appearance at 40% (not to dark to look suspicious ie 5%, not to light to feel...
