    A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to go to the Honda dealership on a Sunday just to look at some used cars. While there i saw this Si and I had never really been up close to a new one. I had been thinking of getting rid of the 08 for a little bit, top of my list was an S2000 but its just not practical enough for me. I search autotrader all the time just to see whats around and I came across a dealership about a half hour away selling 5 '12's for $19,840 so I emailed the dealership I saw the red one at and asked them if they would beat that price and they said they would so I pulled the trigger.

    I beat the hell out of my 08 for 80,000 miles and it never gave me an issue so when i saw a good deal on a new one i figured what the hell.

    Oh and I had to go back tonight to drop off the down payment and the dealership is pissed. As you can see in the pic I dont have the original Si trunk because I swapped with someone. Theyre not as upset about the fact its not an Si trunk, but the car cant be legally sold by them because it doesnt have a 3rd brake light anymore. He said it shouldnt pass inspection without one but ive been passing for years.

    That's not your problem anymore. The deal is done and if anything, they should have said something the day you traded it. Its not hard for them to install an Si spoiler on that trunk. Was this done at Mike Piazza btw?

    It sure isnt haha Theyre probably going to have to order a full Si trunk. When i did the swap we literally unbolted, swapped, and rebolted the trunks. I had to open it from inside the car anytime i wanted to get in there, the key couldnt open it. They could still sell it that way but its not a feature most people want. With the cost of a new decklid for the 3rd brake light plus the body work to fill the old spoiler holes and add the Si spoiler its probably cheaper and easier to just get a new trunk.

    And yes Piazza Drexel Hill. You work there?
