They are nice but I actually bought my 05' ST (non sap) over a 07' civic Si coupe.

I dunno... I just liked the ST alot more... Just traded the ST on a Mustang GT though so I've left the fwd scene for rwd! =)

I like the tail lights, but I'm not a fan of that design.

What happened to going SVT?

1st Mod: Remove pinstriping. 2nd: Cold air intake. My wife actually suggested the cold air intake lol And she wants darker window tint! haha I miss my ST for sure, it had more grunt from the 2.3, but I am slowly getting addicted to Vtec...yo lol

Sorry but you downgraded.
Why? lol

Could not find one of decent miles. Decided that if I were to shell out decent money it might as well be for a car that my wife and I both love. I first test drove one about a year ago, and fell in love, and now I have my dream car, yeah its no ferrari, or have SVT badges, but I love the style and the way it handles. [woot]

BOOOO!

I kid, the SI isn't bad. A buddy of mine has one and it's got decent enough power in there. Maybe it'll hold it's value until you can upgrade to a 2012 Focus ST and leave the dark side behind.[hihi]

That was why I went with the ST when I did choose between SVT, ST or SI... I wanted an 04 EAP SVT hatch... 3dr... BAD!!!!!

but my god if you cant find one under 118k miles and beat to poo poo... lol

The Vtec does sound good from the k20! Best part is... the k20 responds extremely well to bolt-on's!

Yeah I don't get it. The car has no torque and needs 50 more horsepower to be basically equally as fast.

If you get a fart can all of us are going to drag you into the street and stone you.

Dang! I like it, but any kind of power gains? I saw a vid on youtube of a guy who put on an exhaust system on his Si, and they dyno'd it before and after, and he got negative power gains. lol Its probably just more for show than anything.

It is addicting! lol Once I got my tC it didn't take long to fall in love with the VVT-i motor. When I was buying I was torn between the tC and Civic SI.

Car looks good dude! Don't mind the negative peeps. Haters gonna hate!

Oh. And check out Trubendz for exhaust. Or maybe Magnaflow.
