Old member new Ride

I am happy that I got an SI...it was between 08 Accord EX-L or 09 Civic SI....

I got into an accident and had to get a replacement....well, it feels like March of 01 when I first got my Civic all over again...

the US civic has rear independent suspension. Your thinking of the Euro civic with the torsen beam suspension.

US civic

Looks independent to me.

Looks good. The first time I saw those SI rims, I didn't really like them. They look ok imo now.

Re: Old member new Ride

rims are growing on me...besides they dont stand out like older SI rims.....

I signed up for the 8thcivic.com as well...and retro is a must...I don't know about Quad but having fog lights as standard is pretty nice...

Re: Old member new Ride

Honda's wheel choices of late makes me puke in my mouth.

I do like FG's though, so good choice.

Re: Old member new Ride

had my first oil change at 5900 miles consistently getting 29-30 mpg...
the new rims are hate or miss....cops don't really pay attention anymore compared to bright red civic that I had before.

Re: Old member new Ride

Mmm nice, I went about a month ago and test drove the 09 Coupe SI for fun. It was like a thrill ride compared to what I'm use to driving.
