I was actually having some buyers remorse recently... I have the sedan because of all the reasons listed above, but to me personally the coupe just looks so much better (especially the rear bumper)
Thanks for your post. I never saw a 2007 Si Coupe before and I thought it has the large fake vents in the rear bumper, just like the sedan. I just checked Honda site and confirmed. Yes, IMO, the coupe looks a lot better than the sedan.

I want to see (like a boss) more colors and a good MMC of the sedan and coupe. The white coupe looks good.

I bounced around between the coupe and the sedan

The only benefit to the coupe is styling.

I chose the sedan
I felt the coupe was too cramped for my liking. I often do designated driver duties and hated having to cramp people in my previous coupe. Sedan all the way bud;)

You let drunk people in your civic si!? just playing

Coupe styling wins hands down for me. however Zroger73's comment about the doors being shorter on the sedan are absolutely spot on. To add to his comment: the coupe doors feel much longer and they have a weird set of indentations when you open them, the first one hits when the door is not open very far at all, leading you to push it open more but the 2nd indentation is too far and more times than not in a parking lot will open into the car next to you (if there was one there) so you have to watch it.

Guilty as charged. Only if they are in normal drunk levels. Don't need no accidento in da civic! And yet another reason I didn't want the coupe. But, both of them are beautiful (again beauty in the eye of beholder). I honestly think that the design of civicx has been heavily criticized. Owning one, I am probably biased towards it. But, I wouldn't call it ugly or hideous as some have prompted to call this vehicle. I feel it's a vehicle of its time with a few positives in the looks and a few negatives(not enough to win the title of an ugly car). But, what do I know ? It's not like you are paying a million dollars for a civic. You are playing in the baby junior league.

Biggest thing for me? The lack of height adjustment on the shoulder belt on the coupe. WHAT THE F Honda. I adjusted that shoulder belt like 6-7 times on my test drive. Why does the sedan have it, but not on the coupe?

The sedan can pass for a bigger more mature car. More car and space fore your money. From a sporty looks perspective.. The couple all the way. It's a dope little whip. Plus it's small and maneuverable like my old gsr. Since I wouldn't be able to have both.. I'd have to go with the coupe in blue, red, white or silver

I got the coupe because as a young guy I like the sort of aggressive look it has compared to the sedan. The sedans spoiler is just sad.

I guess I'm in the minority in actually liking the sedans spoiler lol. But in all honesty I got the sedan for personal reasons, that and when I bought my 9th gen si I regretted it so bad that I chose the coupe over sedan back then, but as I got older things changed and so did my needs. That's why this time I chose the sedan. The only thing I hate about the sedan spoiler is that stuff tends to just sit there instead of flying off the back, leaves and such. And like others mentioned the sedans rear bumper is it's sore spot in my opinion, it's not as flowing as the coupes, the exhaust looks like it goes so well with the bumper whereas the sedan looks like it's just kinda hanging there, and the infamous black vent things. But as time goes on I really do love the car, more and more everyday and don't regret my decision this time one bit.

I too prefer the spoiler on the sedan.

Much more subdued, don't like the plastic pylons on the coupe.

I do like the monolithic tail light on the coupe though

Didn't notice the sedan had a spoiler, maybe cause I was looking at LX sedan. Must be an option on the LX sedan.

You're in the Si section homie... we all have spoilers
anywayss..anywaysss..I just wanted to shout out to my LX sedan fans who might have not noticed. I almost pulled on an LX sedan and boy would that have been a car wreck. Went from no spoiler to spoilers galore.
