I'm a long time Honda guy, I have a turbo-charged civic in the garage, I shopped long and hard for a new car, and the new GTI just had it all. This point was proven when I came upon a modded 2007 Civic Si Coupe about a month after I had purchased the GTI. Civic had exhaust, intake, at least (based on stickers). I let him go by, changed lanes and came back around very noticably like (had been waiting to come upon a new Si). He manuevered next to me and we gave each other the nod.

I pulled away from him in 3rd at about 45-55 MPH, continued to pull away all the way through 5th. Slowed down and got the thumbs up.

I made the right choice. As for my civic, with all the money I put in to it, yes it is faster, but stock vs stock on the new ones, GTI kicked Si's ass.

Nice... I love me a nice turbo'd civic... What year? What engine?

Hatch, sedan, or coupe?

I love the early 90's hatchbacks.

So i street raced my friends brand new 08 civic si. the turbo let me pull away quick, but with his v-tec he caught up. So i guess the GTI and the SI are pretty evenly matched. but i just dont really like hondas

Raced a brand new Civic Si Friday coming home from work. I was surprised how quick it was - dude was about a half to one car length behind me the whole time, and I'm running Revo Stage I. I think my problem was that I spun my tires a bit (wet road) and hit a pothole. Still nice to make the kill though. ;)

Not quite sure if the Si was modded or not. Sounded like it was stock, but it was a bit of a threat. Raced an old fart can 90s-era Civic with mods on Saturday. That was a destroy.

Civics are definately nice cars - used to have a 2003 model - just no comparison to the MKV.

posted a few times, but I have no means to start crap...

And as far as rice status... I have an rx7 that's louder than any civic I've ever heard and I'm resonated with dual mufflers... Am I a ricer?
