    These are the following differences an Si has, I copied and pasted from another post.

    • engine output increased to 205 HP @ 5,700 RPM (SAE net) and 192 lb-ft torque @ 2,100-5,000 RPM (SAE net)
    • higher maximum boost pressure (20.3 vs. 16.5 PSI)
    • lower compression ratio (10.3:1 vs. 10.6:1)
    • higher-capacity MHI TD025 turbocharger (9-vane vs. 11-vane)
    • helical limited-slip differential
    • larger front brake rotors (12.3" vs. 11.1" vented front and 11.1" vs. 10.2" solid rear)
    • two-mode damper system with normal and firm settings
    • SPORT mode replaces ECON mode - increases suspension damping, reduces power steering assist, increases throttle sensitivity, and raises the activation threshold of the Vehicle Stability Assist system
    • 235/40R18 91W tires vs. 215/50R17 91H
    • 7% stiffer front spring rate
    • 18% stiffer front upper damper mounts
    • 7% stiffer front stabilizer bar rate
    • 32% stiffer rear spring rate
    • Solid vs. fluid-filled front and rear compliance bushings (rear shared with the Type R)
    • High-stiffness rear upper control arms (shared with the Type R)
    • 26% stiffer rear stabilizer bar rate
    • Si-specific seats with thicker side bolsters, non-adjustable headrests, and stitched "Si" logos
    • red interior stitching, gauges, and Display Audio color scheme
    • black headliner and pillar trim vs. gray in EX-T
    • front and rear facias similar to the hatchback
    • center-mounted polygonal exhaust outlet
    • higher-flowing intake system
    • 23% higher-flowing exhaust system
    • aluminum clutch, brake, and accelerator pedals
    • carbon fiber-look interior trim
    • 10% shorter shifter throw
    • leather-wrapped, aluminum shift knob
    • revised shift linkage
    • increased rigidity of shifter bracket mount
    • 450-watt audio system (same as EX-T coupe vs. 180-watt in EX-T sedan)
    • additional items in Driver Information Display including G-force meter, turbo boost gauge with PSI indication, lap timer, throttle percentage, and brake pressure
    • leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift boot, and shift knob
    • premium fuel recommended
    • tire repair kit including sealant and a 12-volt inflator replaces the compact, temporary spare
    • vanity mirrors are non-illuminated vs. illuminated
    • EPA fuel economy ratings of 28/38/32 city/highway/combined vs. 31/42/3
    • optional summer tires
    • stronger rods

    At the end of the day you are obviously a car guy. Get the Si.

    All prices MSRP:
    LX Coupe - CVT Only $20,650
    LX Sedan - Manual $19,450/CVT $20,250
    Sport Coupe/Sedan/Hatch -
    - Coupe Manual/CVT $21,450/$22,250
    - Sedan Manual/CVT $21,150/$21,950
    - Hatch Manual/CVT $22,250/$23,250

    My favorite out of all these is the SI Sedan, which you can prob get around 23K. 2nd favorite is Sport Hatch Manual, prob $21K. 3rd favorite is Sport Sedan Manual, prob 20K. There are so many choices I can't keep track AT ALL.

    Kinda in the same boat here. Been shopping manual coupes, and the local dealer has a leftover 18 LX coupe 6MT for 18k. But I really do like the 19 sport models. I loved the Honda Sensing when test driving. And the armrests don't have that funky, scratchy fabric. More like fake leather, which is an improvement. Anyway, not having Sensing is almost a deal breaker. If one could get a 6MT Sport Sedan or Coupe for 18-19k it would be hard to turn down. Maybe by the end of this year?

    BMW most have some serious mark-up to absorb a $9k loss or maybe they're banking on getting you into another lease since you're business owner.

    I'm not a fan of the 1.5T, but $3k difference for the Si is tempting. In Canada, it'd be more like $9k difference (mainly because Canadian LX has android auto, Heated seat and 6MT).

    I like the fabric on my 6mt Sedan. after 90k, it still looks like new and no inching. Also, would hate the plastic stuff on a hot day (I suspect the fabric stuff is more expensive then fake leather). Also, US no-longer offers 6MT in LX trim, so you're going to spend noticeably more then $18k to get a 6MT.

    I think an 18 LX Coupe Manual for 18K would be a good deal but you should be able to get a 19 LX Sedan Manual for about the same price. Still, if you must have the Coupe Manual maybe the 18 is worth it?
