I bet it's the same exact button & connector, they just paint it with "sport" instead of the leaf.. keeps costs low for Honda!

I really wish I was in a spot to be able to consider this once it goes up for sale. All I ever wanted was an Si hatch. I need the practicality/space the hatch provides, but Honda decided it was Type R or nothing - since the sport isn't any faster than an EX or LX it's really not much of an upgrade in terms of performance... I would have bought an Si hatch without question. Maybe they will learn for next gen? Given the discontinuation of the coupe, one would think if there is a hatchback model they will make an Si variant. Or, one can hope!

Anyways, I wish you luck that you can find a buyer who's willing to pay what this is worth, especially with all the hard work that has went into it. Fantastic job, absolutely fantastic. GLWS!
It is the same button just painted sport can confirm lol. Just installed it today and works just like normal. Here's it installed:

Looks great man! I think I'm gonna grab one myself! Lol. Not a big fan of the leaf, and it may just mostly be the green. This looks so much cleaner! Plus I never use that button anyways.... 🙄

Thanks! Super easy install and only cost about $20, worth it for a subtle change

Pretty much ticked all the boxes now. MAPerformance shot a few of CH2 when I drove them down to Buttonwillow for Super Lap Battle last weekend. The setting is a little bittersweet, I can't track this car anymore if it's sold haha.

Highly recommend you swap the ECU, harness, and engine at the same time. Doing the harness with the engine out, is easy. The clips are placed intelligently, harness routes very intuitively.

Doing a harness with the engine in, requires skinny arms, long fingers, and the ability to work blind.

I did it with the engine still in the car. It was pretty bad, but after a lot of cursing and bloody fingers it all got in.

Oh of course. I would never try to swap a harness in-bay, that sounds awful. In regards to the harness, did you notice any major differences from the Sport to Si harness? I did a pin analysis on the ECU connectors and they are pin-for-pin the same. Just curious if the Si harness has additional connectors or anything. Also, do you get adaptive suspension errors with the Si ECU? I don’t know if the ECU or BCM is what potentially throws that code.

Hey, mate! You may have seen that I sometimes do virtual tuning with some folks’ cars on here.

The above pic is super good, so, I played around with it a bit. I went through a variety of ideas, but ultimately came back to simply lowering it, and some very tiny things here and there because it’s such a great look just as it is. Ultimately, I just did some paint changes. I can do other colors, too. JLMK. Great ride!

Look at the other pins and you'll see why you need the Si harness.

Thankfully, the 10th gen Civic is forgiving with regards to features being present or not, so I don't have adaptive suspension errors, CEL, or warnings about the heated seats, LaneWatch camera, etc. The only code you can scan from my car is a U129E for lacking the push-button start feature, but I don't really care about that (having key ignition is convenient when you least expect it).
