    First pic reminds me of a Scion tC, and the back looks like a Mercedes I saw today, don't remember the model. Looks nice, though.

    I do not like the front end.
    Back end is a little better.
    I like the guage layout...simple, well lit, inobtrusive but only provides the basics.

    The rear 3/4 view kinda reminds me of an Audi. Always a plus!

    I'd probably consider it if I was looking for another compact.
    I still think I'm going for the Maxima around December

    I hope the style grows on me. One thing that I do like (according to a buddy of mine that works at Stoptech) is that the front suspension is a proper macphearson strut system now (where the tie rods connect to the hub). Of course, never as good as dbl wishbone, but definetly better then the current design of having a pitman arm on the strut and having the tie rods connect to that.

    Si isn't going to be that color, I think it's blue or red

    The weight went up, too heavy now...the EX pushes almost 3000lb. Its gonna need more than 140hp.

    NOt a huge fan of this car...SOOOOO glad I got my '03 civic when I did....the car went down hill. I DO like the engine for the Si though, but Ive already got a custom turbo on my car so its faster anyway! lol

    The biggest complaint for the ep3 was that it was too heavy...so they add MORE weight to the thing??? :nono: Honda needs to start thinking more

    the rear end looks great. Front end looks good, though not great.
    Interior...so so.

    But I'm sure the car will be very successful.

    I just wish the TSX had that rear end, instead of that plain generic EL lookalike rear.

    I just went to the honda dealership for info on the SI, said it will now be coming January 06 not December. No msrp as of yet, but said it will be around 21k-22k, fuck happened to under $20,000? I will still be most likely buying it

    everything is fine except it's way too heavy

    the beauty of the civic is it's weight

    u can make 400hp with pretty much any turbocharged japanese 4 cylinder
    so the fact they have a 2.0l in there versus 1.6 means nothing when the car weighs what it does.
    weight is a lot harder to lose than HP is to gain...
