Secondly, I totally agree with your comment about the new Si! After test driving a 07 Si (it was a sedan but still fun), I fell in love. It handles awesomely, fun as heck to drive (yes VTEC is just as addictive as boost) & gets great gas mileage. We traded in a 05 ST for a 07 Si coupe & I wish we would have done it sooner then we did!
(Yeah, I know this is off-topic so sue me)

|turbovation||I like the IRL even if it is kinda...fugly looking. Regardless, as far as NA fit and finish is concerned, nothing can touch the new SI. It's the epitome of a pocket rocket IMO.|

|turbovation||^^Ya thanks for not bein like "american cars suck..HONDA RULES!". We are a generally accepting people who for the most part understand that Honda is a respectable company (at the very least)! As far as gearing is concerned..the SVT has got some crazy gears...long as hell in first, second and short in third, fourth, fifth and sixth. I'm just a TICK below 4000 RPMs at 90 MPH though, so it's not really THAT shortly geared. Ford motors are made to create torque, but the way Honda seems to get their tiny little strung out motors to put the torque down to the ground really does not make them feel that much slower. I drove an RSX-S for example, and was surprised when I felt like it had more torque than my SVT did in stock form even though the SVT was rated at 145 ft.lb and the RSX-S slightly less. I gotta hand it to Honda for the new SI though, they upped the bar a little bit. Unfortunately for them, Mazda and VW were happy to oblige! That is good for us pocket rocket enthusiasts though. I just wish Ford would follow suit. Soon Saturn will be better.|
