Angry God Bless the USA

I mean I love the US, but wow we have crappy cars. I was all for a Si Civic but not really diggin the egg shaped new one. Come to find out my great neighboring country has a Si Sedan!!!! BUT NOT TILL AFTER I BUY a EX in the States. Man U can drink at 19 in canada and rock a Si Sedan! Thats just not fair! Why hasnt any car company realized that us people in the USA like sporty cars too?! Just because we dont have an autoban or use the euro or change the drinking age to 19, do we like bein stuck without options?!

Sorry to vent, just sad

No, hes right...we have an Si Sedan/EX Sedan whatever you want to call it. It comes with the 127Hp engine in it. I think it came out in the latter half of 2004.

As well, don't forget about our Acura 1.7 EL with has the same engine...but with all leather heated seats. mmmmmm

But they do control the drinking age Theres too many conservatives down there, its becoming very...regulated. But I won't get into that.

Here in Alberta, as mentioned above its 18. I've been to Greece about 11 or so times now, there the legal age is more or less if you can see over the counter and their rates of alchoholism are lower than the US, go figure.

and if you think Canada is so great live there but remeber one thing in America the sell gas by the gallon for about $2 in canada the sell gas at about $2 a liter sure thats a canadian dollar but if you do the whole metric conversion gas is alot cheaper in America

you want to know why canada gets the EL and the US dosent.. first in canada the Acura integra 4 door sold alot better then in America... for some reason Americans love their coupes... they dont even sell a 2dr civic in japan cause no one likes them.... so anyway the reason canada gets the EL is becuase they actually sell well in canada.. in America most buyers would say why am i buying a rebadged civic that only upgrade is heated seats.. Americans want power so in America we got the TSX or AKA the accord typeR sold everywhere else

Actually, the gas up here is around $0.75 liter, at least last time I filled up if I recall correctly. There being 4 gallons in a liter, thats $3.00/gallon, Canadian. Divide by about 1.25 to convert to American currency thats about $2.40. Awful near to the gas prices I was paying when I was down driving through California last summer.

I'm sure all the taxes on gas just help to pay for the lovely universal health care we have up here.

WOW! Did I just get bashed or what?! I obviously knicked a nerve or something with that post hahaha. A "*** dumbster"?? Really was name calling really logical for this post? Obviously it is from a lack of sex or something. Yeah so it is the same thing as an EX but with a different name? But the "Si has a Carbon-fibre-look centre panel and Adds to or replaces LX-G features." Oh well I guess all I need to say is people need to chill, the name is cooler then EX and stupid people (myself) wouldnt know the difference and could lie up a storm to idiot friends haha. All you Civic's or whatever they are called in Canada! Ill be in Windsor all summer so if ya wanna go bar hop because I can there, then Look for me hahaha

actaully, you should envy the Acura EL with leather instead, not the SI sedan

and yeah, I was consider adult at age of 18 in Montreal Canada...but come on, people still drinks at age of 15 in the US, no?

The carbon-fibre look center panel is actually kind of nice, when I still had my Vic I thought that it looked better than a lot of aftermarket CF-look additions.

Stop sitting there like it's hopeless.

We have a ******* government...there really isn't much stopping you from doing your part to makes changes happen.

I hate people who whine about stupid/unreasonable laws yet don't even bother contacting your local government official to express your concern.
Sure most of them won't even read or care what you have to say but your local assemblyperson should. Power in numbers apply also.

Go out and try making a difference instead of whining because mommy ain't gonna come to your aid.

This is aimed at all those who complain without taking action.
