I test drove a Cobalt SS, WRX, used STi, and various other cars and happened to come up on an 06 Si and after driving it, I fell in love with it...many of the things I liked about my SVTF..N/A, handling, etc. made me want the Si and I'll tell you...not proud to say it...but my 06 Si is a lot better overall car then my SVTF was...it's also 4 years newer...but it handles better, is quicker, the shifter is the best I've driven...even friends with Foci who drive my Si can't believe how good it is and want one...

The last generation Si (160hp) was not much competition to the SVTF but, the new Si is a completely different beast...as for auto-x, I haven't had an opportunity to auto-x my Si but everything points to it being a great auto-xer..the new Si even comes with a stock Helical LSD....

The accident...
First off, glad that your son is okay! Wow, that looks nasty

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)
