Just figured id drop in and say hi, ive been lurking around the site for a couple days now checking things out. I just picked up a brand new 2012 si sedan (sunburst orange pearl...i think? haha) on Tuesday afternoon.
I traded in my 2008 Scion tC (full exhaust, intake, coilovers, solid motor mounts etc etc). The Scion was a great car, but it was time for something new and a little more reasonable for DD duties (plus the trans was getting a little crunchy, like another member said happened to theirs.) . Vibrating at idle because of the mounts and going deaf on the highway with the exhaust was starting to suck too..
So far ive only put about 400 miles on the SI, but i absolutely love it! Im hoping it holds up as well as previous Hondas ive owned, but i dont see any reason why it wont. Plans are for the car to stay pretty mild, with mostly cosmetic stuff for at least until the warranty runs out. At this point the car has enough power for commuting with the occasional twisty back road, so i might toss in a rear sway bar and possibly yellow fogs and high beam bulbs.
Anyway, enough of my babbling, im glad i found the forum, and hope to get great info down the road!
