Yeah, I driven one. One of my buddies just got a red one. OMFG, that thing is so cool. Fully loaded. And I love taking it into VTEC. Sounds so damn cool. I'll admit, spinning along at 8k rpm, in 2nd gear, is anti-social, but by God, it sounds good. Not happy with the torque, but the overall power is pretty good. My car will beat it off the line, but I can't match it in the top of the powerband.

they are even better w/ the 2.4 liter block swap from the acura TSX. In fact Sport compact car did a project on it and it was badass.

Yup I like them also....... very nice!! They look 'out of place' as a civic, sorta doesn't make sense but it looks like a 'higher end' car......

I'll probably never buy another FWD "Sport Compact" again, but that would be very very high on the list of cars I would consider... at least if there were 2-3 year old examples ready when I went to buy. Not worth the money new.
