    '15 Si owner got 10 gen coupe

    Kept the Si and have touring coupe. Hard to believe this is a Civic.

    dashes are different but I like both.
    Steering is almost as good as Si. Both well weighted. Feel is meh but need a Cayman for that. Still like the steering overall in both.
    body roll (hey it's a Honda) still there like Si but Not a deal breaker.
    Torque- Si has none . Coupe has tons. Now a turbo convert.
    Ride quality in Coupe is outstanding.
    Sound-music - who cares
    Sound -engine. Hear is what got me- luv the Si sound at all levels but this turbo has a growl when you lay into it.
    tranny-hate CVT then bought the Coupe now love CVT. Putting tranny in sport mode and hammer it-excellent push.
    no paddle shifters to "play" shift but would be nice.
    Handling- coupe as good as Si.

    Cannot wait a it to drive the 10 gen Si after seeing what this 10 gen Coupe can do.
    i hope against hope that the Honda crew offers a DSG like auto in Si in addition to the stick.

    Good review, I just drove a new one recently as well and have previously owned a 12 and 15 Si. It is astounding how nice the new model is inside and the ride is fantastic, much more firm than I expected and the CVT always keeps you in the power band making it feel very quick. IMO a home run for Honda. Congrats on yours!

    How much longer do you think Honda will make us wait before the manual transmission 10th gen turbo coupes come out?

    ~Sure you could buy an Si and leave it stock, but that would sorta be like paying for a prostitute just to talk~

    How do you like your new WRX? How does it compare to Si? Thanks.

    It's a very fun, strong car. I traded my 12 Si for a 15 WRX back when the new gen first came out. Biggest smiles ever driving that thing but it had a lot of new gen issues. Wouldn't start sometimes, knocked BADLY on the stock tune, wouldn't go into 1st or reverse sometimes etc. That's when I jumped back into a 15 Si. I missed the fun badly of the wrx though, got a FP and tune immediately but still couldn't love it. Fast forward a bit and after some recalls and the updated 16 release, I got a 16 premium. Zero issues this time.

    Compared to the Si it is tons faster on the bottom / mid rpms, bout the same up top. Corners very flat, crazy fun on dirt / gravel roads. Downsides, it's finicky, needs a lot more maintenance, every part needs a tune, loud on the road, not as nice of interior and certainly won't be as reliable in the long run.
