    They aren't that bad. Actually they are quite nice to drive, imo, although a bit heavy, tall and soft in stock form. Not an all-out performance machine by any stretch, more of a somewhat lively touring car.

    If you try it and like it, that's a damn good deal. And the '04 is the facelifted version, which I personally prefer over the earlier style.

    EPA rated mileage is 26/30 fwiw

    the shifter is very gay.

    Overall, it's a poor excuse for a "performance" anything... And if you want a decent daily, get a civic sedan/coupe... not the si.

    The shifter was my favorite thing about the car. If you drove it, you'd understand. It's placed closer than normal to the wheel so you can reach it quickly while steering with both hands. Old Alfa Romeos have a similar layout.

    Instead of starting a new thread i figured i would just reuse this one. What are the dealer prices for new civic coupes? I'm thinking about buying one new and I'm trying to get the research done so i can try to get the best possible price since toward the end of the summer dealers like to clear out for the 2007's.

    If the car is in good shape yeah it's worth that.

    Well MSRP on the LX coupe is 16.5 without options, invoice just over 15.1, price should fall somewhere in there but where exactly I couldn't tell ya. Don't bother looking for a DX, they only exist on paper (and why would you want one anyway?)

    Personally I'd much rather have a Fit than a 1.8L Civic. Lots of room, better gas mileage, cheaper, lighter, more fun to drive.
