  1. Considering 2.0 6M sedan or SI

    My Si insurance is about the same as the Sport hatch, but mine didn't have Sensing so that could be a factor. Definitely worth it imo, you get so much for a little money. Resale might be better too.
  2. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    Maybe, but I've never bought the idea the Si hurts Type R sales. A detuned 2.0L Type R probably would negate a Si hatch, but I think they'd not detune it, just decontent to drop the price a little, like the Sport Europe gets.
  3. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    I agree, the gap from Si to Type R is too large ($11k?). They need a Type R with modest wing, cheaper 19s, lose the nav and stereo etc. Maybe even detune it if you want to sell it $5k cheaper.
  4. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    If you put a 2.0T in the Si, you have to change all kinds of things - you need more cooling, better brakes, suspension changes, body stiffening etc - by using the 1.5T in the Si, Honda barely had to change anything vs the rest of the lineup. That allows them to sell the Si for $2k more than a...
  5. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    225 hp Si hatch w/ LSD and LEDs for $27k, perfect. Yeah, if they can reliably get the 1.5T up to 225 hp, that's what they'll do for sure. They don't want the Si to be $30k.
  6. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    While I prefer the hatch, the hatch ST has the moonroof anyway which I don't like, and no LSD, and would have been like $2-3k more. What I really want is LSD, LEDs, and no moonroof. Yeah I know, Type R. :)
  7. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    Rather than tuning the 1.5T further, Honda should design a more efficient and cheaper 2.0T for use in the Si.

    taxi driver? Didn't know they existed anymore post Uber.
  9. Photo request - Aegean blue + silver wheels

    I ordered silver wheels for my winter set today. Rial Bavaro 17s. My Aegean sport had two sets of black wheels so i want to try silver with my blue Si this time.
  10. Lanewatch not working

    You can turn the stupid thing off? Sweet.
  11. Need 17" winter wheel/tire setup for Si?

    THanks, I saw that brand but knew nothing about them. Can't go wrong with German wheels for $140! If I didn't like the stock Si wheels I might go for the OZs for summer, but I really like the 2020 wheels.
  12. Need 17" winter wheel/tire setup for Si?

    THanks man! The other wheel on Tirerack I like is the 17" OZ HyperGT GLT, but that's $360/wheel, which seems really nutty for winter wheels. :oops: I also hate to buy such an expensive wheel in a small size, but don't want to risk 18s in winter.
  13. Need 17" winter wheel/tire setup for Si?

    I need a winter set for the new Si, thinking 215/50R17 snow tires, maybe Nokian or Continental, and 17x7.5 wheels. (it's hard to find 17x7 on Tirerack which seems more ideal). Anyone know a good website besides Tirerack for viewing wheels? Are 215s ok on 7.5" wheels for winter? Leaning toward...
  14. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    Nice, I think I could have gotten an SE w/ Perf Package for as low as $26k if you refuse the 0%. It's a friggen steal really, especially with 2020 DCC/Fender-equipped cars at $37k. I test drive a GTI three times, could never pull the trigger, not sure why. I prefer the Si for some reason.
  15. How often do you get the urge to impulsively trade/sell your Si

    I saw a white Fit Sport in the showroom when I picked up my Si, kinda wish I needed another car. Sweet little car for $17k.
  16. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    I think a GTI resale is so poor and Type R so high that it would cost the same over the life of the car. Unless you buy a used GTI at close to trade in, then you might make out.
  17. Is the power on the 10th gen Civic SI enough?

    So you've never driven on a track, that's what I figured, lol. The part that needs upgrading is you, not the car. Guys who've actually been to track days have seen it many times, a guy shows up, is really slow and blames the car, spends a ton of money to upgrade it, is still slow, so trades the...
  18. Help Me Find/Buy an SI

    What I did to find my blue Si (purchased last week) was first use Truecar to generate a deal ($2100 off MSRP). The dealer refused to honor it, but i emailed around a few other dealers that had Si's in stock and a couple did honor it. If you find a receptive dealer, tell them to find you a blue...
  19. How is SI in the snow without snow tires.

    Don't bother with snow tires on a leased car in NJ. You'll be fine, the LSD will help.

    Yes, I think an Si hatch is very likely, since hatch sales have far exceeded expectations. I think you'll see an Si hatch with a midly updated 1.5T, rather than a 2.0T. It won't compete with the Type R, and will fill the void of the Si coupe. I think the Type R is a hatch because it's a far...
