  1. Anyone get buyers' remorse over their trim choice? (1.5T vs 2.0L)

    As good as the coupe looks, the sedan is still extremely sexy imo. It's been awhile since I authored this post but my endgame is now gonna be a Modern Steel Metallic '19 Si sedan. I've got a guy at work who has a red SI coupe, and while it does look awesome, I STILL find myself gazing back at my...
  2. Anyone who sees snow, how is your Civic performing?

    I live in the snowbelt of the northern midwest, the only times I have had issues with winter (I have michelin x-ice tires) are: 1. When we got like 50cm+ in the course of one day, so at all times there was like 3-6" at least of dense, deep "get your car stuck" type snow. The city would plow...
  3. A question to Si owners

    Just a random thought, but you don't need to call them "females" lol, feels super weird. Like reddit-weird. Just call them women/chicks/ladies/whatever like everyone else. We got no issues calling eachother dudes/guys or anything. Maybe it's just me but calling them "females" comes across as if...
  4. Does any1 feel Honda will finally listen, and the 11th gen Si will be a huge improvement power wise?

    Actually theyre putting in turbos for fuel economy, don't kid yourself if you think the engine decisions they're making are for anything but emissions. Same for the CVT. Same as why toyota is using a launch gear now
  5. Any evidence that the 2.0 is detuned/overrated?

    I really hate this expression tbh, there's no elasticity in a CVT, and the sheaves don't even pull the belt: it's a belt made of metal plates and the sheaves/pulleys actually push the belt. There's no rubber band effect, that's not even a thing. The delay with CVT acceleration is due to the...
  6. Any evidence that the 2.0 is detuned/overrated?

    I have an EX CVT and it accelerates way faster than this, for sure. I have highwall mats as well and they add thickness, but mine are compressible so if I literally step into it I can still floor it. This does look like it's not being floored so your floor mats are probably not allowing that...
  7. Any evidence that the 2.0 is detuned/overrated?

    This isn't an SI thread, go away, no one cares, that isn't the topic of discussion here.
  8. FINALLY! Switchback side marker Amber at night and blink with turn signal

    Idk why this only showed now. I've been looking for this for SO LONG!! Thanks, whoever posted here!!
  9. 47mpg to the ski hill, 46mpg back. I love this car! (2.0L N/A)

    Drove 30ish km to my local ski hill and got 47mpg, and got 46mpg on the way back. Gotta say I really love this car and its efficiency! I run tuned on my 2018 EX, with 91 octane and an aem intake. Using econ mode, temperature was around -7c in the morning and 0c in the afternoon. This was done...
  10. Cops that Speed and ride your tail......

    yeah tbh i think hitting a deer would likely total a civic, especially if hit at-speed on a highway. If not, it seems to be at the perfect height to have ground deer splatter all throughout the inside of the passenger cabin so you'd probably need to replace all your upholstery anyways lol
  11. Cops that Speed and ride your tail......

    going under the speed limit is totally suspicious lol. Because only very few people do it, and those that do are usually trying to not run off the road due to being impaired. I mentioned in my initial post that bashed going less than the speed limit, that I would be assuming that conditions are...
  12. 2.0L CVT Lag on 2.0 EX No Turbo

    When you slam on the brakes your torque converter unlocks itself. You can feel this when braking normally too, around 10-15kmh or so you'll feel a change in how the forward momentum feels... Hard to explain but it's the torque converter freeing up. When you start accelerating your engine needs...
  13. Cops that Speed and ride your tail......

    Uh dude, you can be selfish without "a specific malicious intent". People are selfish all the time without thinking "Hmm, I'ma be a dickhead today!!"
  14. Cops that Speed and ride your tail......

    Way under the speed limit isn't a reasonable speed. If you're doing 40kmh in a 50kmh zone in the city at 6 in the morning when people wanna get to work, you're the asshole, not the people tailgating you. Fact is that many places in many cities don't have double lanes or passing lines, I can...
  15. Canada 2019 Sedans/Coupes are live. The 1.5T gone from all models but Touring and SI

    I was a fan of the engine feel tbh, that and it was cheaper, at a time when I was already paying more than i was expecting/hoping for a vehicle (Ford dealership made a very aggressive offer that was very very cheap and Honda offered basically no discount aside from the normal 750 rebate)...
  16. SO - What's the single WORST feature of your Civicx?

    It does for us push-start people.
  17. SO - What's the single WORST feature of your Civicx?

    Headrest isn't there to rest your head on. Just to help prevent whiplash. The manual indicates how it should be set up, but yeah it's just there to absorb shock from being rear-ended
  18. Cops that Speed and ride your tail......

    Yeah lol. That's the point of a vehicle, to get where you need to go quickly and efficiently. The only thing that frustrates me more on the road is people who brake before going in the turning lane, and then theyre half in half out of the lane by the time they're stopped. Are you asking to get...
  19. Cops that Speed and ride your tail......

    Do the world a huge favor. Don't go 40 in a 45 zone. Do the speed limit. If I was doing 50 or whatever in a 45 and came up behind someone doing 40 I'd ride their ass too lol. I respect people who do the speed limit and give them space. But if you're doing less than the speed limit (assuming...
  20. 11th gen Civic ?

    I'm aware of what you meant but Honda won't do things "just to increase responsiveness" if it doesn't benefit them in another way. They did turbo and CVT both for EPA emissions reasons. Toyota did a launch gear because direct drive is more efficient than a CVT during takeoffs and dead stops...
