I had a 2008 civic Lx that I used to go to work with...

Oh year it was manual...

I HATED THE DAMN CAR, no Hp, no Tor The tranni was stupid, it would take 2 to 3 seconds to kick in.

Above I wrote Had... This is why


My car was parked and woke up to this


This shows it from a different angle



But she did look pretty good


Now I ordered an 2013 civic si... I test drove it and tranni makes me smile. going to come in Polish Metal... Gray... I think its going to come in May if im lucky.


Mods were, Led drls, reverse lights and led every bulb inside, 20 percent tint all around. That's it, I wasnt going to drop money into a Lx.

Si, oh boy im gonna have fun... Maybe ill post pics of my Teg too, she had work done to her I was able to beat some beamers with her (they were auto and drivers didnt know how to drive, but a win is a win)

I just did a full race cat back and love it. Intake and hondata is what's next for me. There are a lot of things you can do I would take a look over at the bolt ons section

Sorry you hated the LX but if you want power a Honda is not the way, try Subaru if you want handling with power and a mustang for raw power.....

Welcome to the site. I think you'll be happy with the 2013 si. Did you get a sedan or a coupe?

I ordered a sedan, being built on April 24th or the 25th (I heard those days are the best to build a car on) and Finishing on 29th. The dealer said the car should arrive by May 15.

I was looking into an STI and EVO - one the car costs are too high. Plus I look at the STI and EVO as a spoiled brat car, I can live with the Vtec kicks in jokes and Ive owned nothing but hondas (95 Integra Ex (tons of bolt ons), then this civic lx (only lighting done) )

So for me to switch from honda I would be hard. The only other manufacture would be Nissan.

I test drove 2012 STI, EVO, Civic si coupe, 2008 G37, 2012 Mustang (I think it could have been the 13). I hated all of them except the SI and G37. I think I was bias...

Reason I didnt get the G37 people wanted to much for an used car that didnt have a black interior. So Civic it was.
