I like the I-VTEC gauge so you can see when the VTEC kicks in.

Nice toys and interior stuff but with the ass end of a camry and a face only a drunk mother could love I'm not a fan I would pick the 11s over this one if I had to chose but I don't thats why I have a gti.

The '12 is a big loss on the looks front and I think the 2.4L motor is way too "pedestrian" considering the heritage of the car. It's just like how the 1.8T and 2.0T motors always feel more aggressive and "fun" than the VR6s and the manual is more fun than the DSG, even if it's technically slower. The 06-11 Civic Si's were great cars, but like most great cars, the marketing department of it's maker has a really hard time not messing with things.

If its the K24 that was rumored to be thrown in there, probably a good bit.

I used to have a 2007 Si before my GTI and the rumors and reports on the new generation were coming out saying the exhaust manifold is cast into the head of the car. Meaning that headers/turbo manifolds are going to require a new head before they can be replaced which is a huge restriction on them.

the i-MID also includes a unique power monitor mode, which shows current engine output as a percentage of peak horsepower.

This is silly. Probably just shows 201hp when you have your foot down to the floor.

i'd take a slightly used 2010 or 2011 SI over the new ones. 2.4L with only 1 cam that has VTEC... not realy what i would call an engineering feat that the Si was always supposed to represent in terms of NA performance/fun...

From what i have heard.... it seems like that echaust manifold is integrated into the block as well. What a joke
