    An auto Si wouldn't necessarily cannibalize the sales of the upper trim (touring) civics either, even with a lower price. It's all about demographic. The Si is bound to have more power, yes. But equip it similarly to the EXT trim that means people that want leather still go to the EXL and Touring models for those added features. Also, the Si would undoubtedly fall short in the fuel mileage compared to the regular civics. People who want more luxury, softer ride and higher mpg get the normal civics. People who want firmer ride, more power (at the loss of a few mpg) and value performance over added features would go for the Si. It's a different demo, someone looking at a touring wouldn't necessarily want the Si just to get more power if luxury and efficiency were their priority.

    And again, sad to say.. the si is NOT a sports car... sport injected does not = sports car... the civic is an economy car, even in Si form... it's simply a sporty variant. True sports cars are cars like the Prelude, S2000, NSX etc. It's not right to compare the Si to a real sports car as it'll fall short in almost every category of a true sports car enthusiast.

    And the Type R is absolutely the sportiest variant. It has the most upgraded handling and power output, and is by far closer to a true sports car than the Si has ever been simply for the fact that it throws most if not all of the "economy" factors of the civic out the window in favor of true pure performance.

    It's redundant to create a GT/GTR variant of the civic if the only difference between it and the Si is a transmission. They'd net more sales using the tried and true Si monicker that has way more notoriety and history attached to it. And no, DCTs aren't that expensive, not for cars like these... they can be had for roughly $1000 over the manual variant, just look at examples like the GTI, Veloster, and a few of fords models that use DCTs. Hell, just look at the acura lineup and it's easy to see DCTs don't add anywhere near 3-4k over a manual. My marketing view is far from flawed, it's what i do for a living. It's not as black and white as this car has more power and this one doesn't. It's the same reason the civic coupe has different features on it's trims than the sedan. Demographics are complex and varied. It's short sighted to assume that a civic touring customer would buy an Si just because it offers more power and vice versa.

    the other argument i hear is it'll eat up ILX sales. Well, that'll soon be a non-issue too as Acura slowly moves it's entire lineup to adopt its various AWD systems that aren't available on the civic, si, or type R models that'll stay FWD. Also, luxury cars are all about image or else audi wouldn't do as well as it does since many of it's cars are mechanically identical to their VW counterparts at least in some trim level.

    I would assume so. Unless there's been an update lol. I've been using that to fight the dealerships around me. Their reactions are hilarious.

    Would be cool if the ILX next gen had a coupe variant like the Integra or Rsx and it was AWD, Fun to dream ha. Also to me SI means Sport inspired. So it would be cool if you wanted an AWD variant of the new CIVIC and it was available through the next gen ILX and then it would inject some interest into the Acura brand. Also AWD type r variant available through Acura. This way they can start bringing in people to the Acura dealerships IMO

    I've run into instances where dealerships around my area have vehicles coming into the lot with no add-ons on them and claim that their MSRP is higher than the standard MSRP stated on this document. I show them this and it stumps the hell out of them.

    In other instances I run into plenty of dealerships that already have the vehicle on the lot, but they already souped it up with all these "protection packages" and other add-ons. In turn, they push this high MSRP on me (highest dealerships around me have pushed an EX with Honda Sensing is 28k MSRP), but then I remind them that the only reason their MSRP is that high because of said add-ons... Then I follow-up on how I'm not going to pay for them THEN show the document on why lol.

    I'm wondering how you're grouping a prelude into the "pure sports car" category. EDIT: did it again. This was meant for @RobbJK88

    Wow. Looks like the dealer lost a bit (not much) money on the car they sold me lol.

    No, no tax credit either... and depending where you live. You either pay more tax + toll fees or don't pay anything.
