Does the ride feel any different with the 18's on it? Also did the fuel economy take a hit?
The fuel economy seems to be the same I guess it depends on the way you drive your baby. :) the ride there is a little road noise from the new size/ old stock oem rims but I'm use to it from my 2014 civic si.

I gotta tell you man: I always hated those rims on the 9th gen Si, but they look ridiculously good on the 2016. I don't hate the Touring rims by any means, but I definitely liked the look of the EX-L/EX-T rims more. But man - these are sharp.

(Also, I lived in Minneapolis for 10 years - I have a ton of flight attendant friends. What airline do you fly with?)

What made you change from the '14 Si to the '16 Turbo? How do you compare these two cars in terms of size/fun/quality and etc?
The Si was fun to drive. I just simply fell in love with my new touring sedan.

Looks good man... really like the look but now your performance may be on par if its a Turbo considering you added about 15lbs per wheel.

I've had my fun in the Si, it's about the looks now. This car is far more pretty than my 9th gen Si. I drove on the lot seeing my ABM touring fell in love parked my Si and drove away with the touring. Way more fun in my opinion. :)

The new one is a better driver and way more fun? I like to hear that if that's true.

owned both generations yes the touring is more grown up now and has better amenities than the Si of 9th generation had. Rides much smoother too.
