    I have contemplated upgrading the Si
    But don’t know what would be worth it
    I’ve thought about a type R but interior feels the same besides the seats and I upgraded my shifter already so it already feels better than an R
    And even did the type r steering wheel, so getting into an R almost wouldn’t feel as special.
    I’m not sure
    But what are your guys’ thoughts?

    thanks!

    ND Miata, 2019+ if you can afford new :)

    Walks all over the Civic in terms of driving feel, engagement, and overall fun factor! It's also faster to 60 than an Si so you rule out the "it's slow" part.

    Only loses out in everyday practicality. I want one in a few years :)

    This was my upgrade while my car is going to be down for awhile. I know I just got I so I wanted to show it.

    I really think there is a new Honda sports car coming in the next few years. A new Prelude to compete with the Supra would be great.

    They need to bring the prelude name back. It was a great car for its time, but they need to keep it reasonable.

    If I was looking for a new reasonable vehicle, I would consider the 2.0 accord sport

    I always loved the preludes I had an 01 type sh
    From what I heard, they burn oil like crazy, mine did for sure and I knew of a lot of others that experienced the same thing

    I like them all, but my favorite was the 86-87 SI. I was in highschool at the time and I remember one of guys at my school had a red one. I also liked the 87 and then the new 88 CRX SI's

    This.

    If gas mileage is not much of a concern, its hard not to have fun with a big V8 under the hood, especially when it comes equipped with a stick. All of that torque will keep you grinning ear-to-ear.

    If gas mileage is a factor, maybe consider something like a V6 Mustang or Nissan 370z.

    Very nice HOG! I have owned quite a few motorcycles but its been awhile since I have gotten back on one. Nothing better than being on two wheels though. Be careful out there and keep the rubber side down!
