    I have a Dyno Blue Pearl Si coupe, and I'm looking at trading for a Dyno Blue Pearl Si sedan.

    I think the Dyno Blue color really pops on the Si model - I get compliments on it daily. I'm not crazy how it looks on the non-si models, but it definitely is a head turner while not being "too" extreme.

    I have to tell you, Rallye Red bores me to tears I think it washes out the taillights and just looks cheap. No disrespect to anyone who has a red Civic, but red has never done it for me.

    I normally hate white cars, but the white Si sedan for 2013 looks really sharp. The Sunburst Orange is a really nice color too if you're looking at a redder car - its not as orange as you might think it is...more burnt orange with lots of darker red tint to it.

    I won't do black ever again - the Civics paint is notoriously soft and after one winter, my rocker panels looked 10 years old even with regular washing. I like the grey color, but its pretty common.

    Some people think Dyno Blue is too 'flashy' but I disagree - its clarity and depth changes depending on the lighting. On bright, sunny days its got a deep pearly, cerulean blue tone to it, but on overcast days, its got a subdued, paler blue to it.

    Bought the Taffeta white, non-Nav, only complaint is the tiny screw hole centered in the front bumper from the license plate bracket.

    Agreed fully on the Si blue, should've went more toward the Accord blue. ^^

    It's the exact same color on SI & Non-SI, unless you are referring to the other shade of Dyno Blue that went out on some '12 models.

    I know they're the same (minus the variances in Dyno Blue Pearl I and II on the 2012s), I just never liked how it looked on the non-Si models from a personal perspective. I was a bit annoyed they allowed it to become a non-Si color. I actually liked the Atomic Blue Pearl color from the 8th gens.

    I know the cars aren't that different aesthetically - the non-Si from the Si, but I just like how the color looks on Si's better. I know that's weird haha.

    No I feel the same way. I got PMM Si sedan and love the color on the Si but I don't think I would of got PMM if I bought a non Si.
    Also wish Honda offered more colors in the Si like Crimson red and Kona.
