    03 Si, K20 engine.. underestimated.

    I was on my way home from work today and all the sudden this Si does a ricer fly by out of no where.. im thinking to myself..woah he must have some balls..(thinking it was Si engine) .. so we got to a stop light and then a old stang 4.6 joined the mix. Turned green and i was ahead of both by a good 3 cars until around 85 i felt him pulling hard on me. .and as we hit 95 he creeps by me and keeps pulling.. and then shut down because of a turn. The bugger was quick.

    lol

    They are economy cars. Built to be reliable, get good gas mileage, and get you from A to B.

    Lets try to keep it that way guys.
    All show and no go . . .
    Your car looks fast, but why's it so slo.

    Yup, before the bottom end let loose. Then he goes into detail on how he got beat by a cavalier or something because it wasn't driveable

    Last time I checked, the imprezza was marketed as an economy car.

    Sorry guys, but I have to say something. This is ridiculous. Honestly, the only Civics I've ever seen that I DIDN'T like are the egg-looking hatchbacks from the '90s and the new Si. But even then, the only thing I can even think about dogging them on is the way they look. A friend of mine drives a very sleeper white 94 hatch that runs 12s, and you'd never know it. And guess what? It's reliable. It gets him from A to B even in snow.

    I really get a kick out of these kids whose only defense against a nice car is "It's still a Civic." or "It's still a Neon." Ever driven a Civic? One of the most reliable cars ever built, inexpensive, easy and cheap to modify, and they're decent looking. What's the matter, kiddo? Jealous?

    Same point as the Honda...I was just making a point. Honda owners don't think their cars are crap, WRX owners don't think their cars are crap and Porsche owners certainly don't think their cars are crap...its a food chain, depending on what level you're on determines how you look at cars.

    We should all stop fighting over this stuff. We all have a love of cars. No matter if it's a civic or a muscle car.
