Cool Anyone own a civic si?

I went from Toyota to Honda in 09 and loved the differences. Although my parents grew up driving muscle cars I dont think Ill be in a position to afford one or the fuel for one. I did however thought I could swing an SI as they seem rather affordable used rather its a few years old or upwards to 100k miles.

It looks like they get pretty decent mpg when babied and have power on tap when its needed. Ive tried to test drive twice after a crz and my local dealer has let me down in any way they can.

I tried both a crz stick and cvt, but felt slower than the insight I had at the time. The insight averaged above 55 mpg a tank and saved me a lot of fuel over the years I owned it.

Anyhoo, reading online it seems they say the SI is for a hormonal teen and for the grown up you should consider a Accord. I know you can get the accord with a v6 and stick shift, but the mpg looks like it tanks with that configuration.

So, just wondering. I like the versa, but I want a stick for my next car and some MORE POWER and I dont see a stick being an option in the Altima and I want a 4 door sedan.

Never had an SI, but I did own a CRZ and now my fiancee owns a 2016 civic EX-T (turbo) and from that I can tell you without any doubt that the turbo civic blows the CRZ out of the water. Her car would leave my CRZ like it was sitting still, and she still gets well up into the 40-something MPG range. Based on how quick the EX-T is the SI has got to be really quick. I know for her EX-T there is already a computer mod that uses all stock parts and doing nothing but the ECU change it brings the car to 200 horse, which is pretty crazy. Someday when its not under warranty I will circle back and explore that mod... by then she will probably buy a new car and it will become my car =D

Yeah, hondata has a tuner you can reprogram it. Not sure if you use pump or 93 octane fuel.

Never drove a regular civic either.
