  1. 2022 Si compared in new WRX review

    Car looks a bit gross on the outside. Interior is just OK. It may well have a nearly a 100 whp advantage with reflashes compared to a reflased Si. Would be a lot of fun in 10 years if they’re going for a song and you can find a car still stock. Much larger motor and a certainly larger turbo...
  2. Everyone loves the 11thgen 2022 Civic Si : Straight Pipes review - “Perfect Civic!”

    I’m interested in how the hot reflashes turn out. The different turbocharger and exhaust side VTEC might make some some higher numbers up top. We already saw how the late Sis with the lower gearing did a negligible change to instrumented tests. This looks to carry over the lower final ratio. A...
  3. Everyone loves the 11thgen 2022 Civic Si : Straight Pipes review - “Perfect Civic!”

    I mean… I jumped ship on the 9th gen forums over to CivicX and ranted and raved how much better the GenX was over Gen9. The power train, chassis, seats… substantially better. I’ve commented over on ClubRSX too… to give folks my opinion on the differences. I also thought the RSX had some...
  4. Everyone loves the 11thgen 2022 Civic Si : Straight Pipes review - “Perfect Civic!”

    Yeah. I really liked the Mazda 3 I test drove in ‘15 in a lot of ways… but hated the “glued-on-tablet” look they had. It was the first car I test drove like that and more and more cars are going that way. Aesthetically the 9th gen Si I ended up going with that had a integrated infotainment was a...
  5. Everyone loves the 11thgen 2022 Civic Si : Straight Pipes review - “Perfect Civic!”

    It is interesting that there are so many overpriced 10th gens on lots right now. At some point in the next year, I have a feeling there are going to buy a batch of them for high prices and supply will start to catch up and those 10th gens are going to collect dust. The thought of someone paying...
  6. The definition of insanity

    Yep. That’s where you essentially have to get $20k in a private party sale to equal around 18.9k for the trade… because I’ll make up that $1100 in not being taxed the $18.9 trade value when put against the value of the new car. Even if you owed the full 18.9k value…even if you had zero equity...
  7. The definition of insanity

    Yeah. I contemplated getting back in one of a couple old cars I wanted and was looking last night. The last thing I need is another 20+ year old car at the moment. Sure want one though. Things that should be $2500-5000 are generally $5k-10k so fun throw-away cars are kind of hard to come by. I...
  8. The definition of insanity

    Yeah. I thought getting 25.2k for my 4 year old, 41k mile Si was insane. I’d love to know what they’re going to try to sell it for… 28k? 30k? They’ve got to turn a profit on it.
  9. VTEC.. is this for real?

    I did like K20A3 base-RSX with its wild VTEC. And by “wild VTEC”, I mean completely-unnoticeable. The A2’s VTEC however… 👍
  10. Would you get manual in an ugly color?

    You had me at, “Would you get manual…” Yes. You can’t really see the exterior color from the inside of the car. You would notice, and miss, the lack of a manual transmission however.
  11. Question ... Please - torn between 2022 Civic Hatch LX or 2022 Accord LX?

    I’d expect, dollar for dollar, the Civic in a desirable trim may have a lower depreciation (thus higher resale) than a base Accord. I sat in an Accord when they were new for ‘17 or ‘18 and didn’t like it compared to the Civic… it didn’t even take a test drive. To me, they’ve blown right past...
  12. 2022 Nissan Z

    I’ll give one a look but it wouldn’t replace the Si as the fun-slow car… and I’d probably have to liquidate the 300zx. It’d be redundant with another Z car. I’d keep the truck for truck stuff and the Odyssey and Civic as vehicles the whole family can fit in and serve similar purposes. I’ve...
  13. 11th gen development nickname?

    I’m guessing “New Accord” Accords would be “Avalon Fighter”.
  14. How would you fix the 2022 Civic Si?

    There was a bump in there somewhere. I remember driving an ‘02 with 227 I ended up passing on and eventually getting the first RSX. Years later my friend took for for a ride in his (then new) ‘14 or ‘15… maaaybe ‘16 that was 260-something. 268 sounds right. My wife has test drove a newer WRX. I...
  15. How would you fix the 2022 Civic Si?

    Add back the gen X missing options. Add vented seats which is something I’d love in a car and never have had. This car would never get memory power seats, but I’d pay extra for the option if it were available Make the infotainment not follow the trend of “tablet-nailed-to-dash” and have it be...
  16. 2022 Honda Civic Si pricing announced!

    Still realistically priced given what everything else is. Back in ‘17… I got mine under invoice in the 23k-range. I have a bad feeling even if 27k is in-line with the times, finding cars under MSRP to say nothing about under invoice may be a challenge. Closer to 20k the Si was a great all around...
  17. 2022 Honda Civic Si World Debut! 🌎

    Yeah. That was a real heartbreaker. It was one of the few newer cars that I was interested in. I liked the older 3s I cross shopped my gen 9 against back in ‘15. I just thought they were gutless. They cured the power/torque issue and then broke the car for me with auto-only.
  18. 2022 Honda Civic Si World Debut! 🌎

    Yeah. I test drove a CPO CTS-V Sport… thinking it was going to replace the GenX. It was about 35k and they offered me 22k for the Civic at 3 years old and 30k miles… when I’d spent 23.5k total. I was so pumped and figured it was a no brainer. Car had too many issues as a CPO and, like it’s...
  19. 2022 Honda Civic Si World Debut! 🌎

    I remember when Chevy dropped the SSs by 25% of MSRP that final year, I was interested in buying one in manual. There wasn’t one so far as I could tell w/in 400 miles for me to see. Piles of manuals. The fact it was a 4 door manual sedan with a LS3 was the whole draw… suspension was good too...
  20. $15k price markup on 2022 Civic Hatchback Sport Touring!

    Yeah… that’s a throbbing negative.
