    Welcome to the forum!

    Mine had 3 kilometers (so just under 2 miles roughly). It was ordered in for me and I had to wait a few weeks for it to be built so no one had a chance to test drive it before I got my hands on it, lol.

    Welcome to the newbie club. First non-Nissan of my own. Family has had Honda's and I always liked driving them.

    I had 8 miles on mine. Put 30+ fairly hard miles on the CBP sedan I test drove - twice!! Sales guy encouraged the revving and hard driving being an 8th Si owner himself.

    My car rolled off the truck at noon, got prepped and I took her home at 6 the same day. Now, 4500 miles after just two months.
    bluestar gave me the clap.

Who here has bought the lowest mileage new si?
    We lost a guy for the sky active now gained one. Yay. Whats the be deal over the sky actives. I like mazdas but I'm lost to on how ppl are comparing sky active to.the si. So strange. Anyway welcome

    To be honest, they arent comparable in the least. I simply had originally planned on a gas friendly compact and non si civic trims werent cracking my list. Si just sort of threw a wrench in the works and won me over.

    Still, the skyactiv tech is pretty cool and I believe has a ton of potential. But for all that boasting of 155hp @ 40mpg, it felt sluggish like every other high 30's, lows 40's mpg car. For now the mazda 3 serves as a nice looking compact that puts some more competition in the 40mpg category. It just isnt this combination of power and fuel economy Mazda would have you believe.
