Hello to all here on the forum! I am a new arrival as is my Crystal Black Pearl Si Sedan. Needed a Daily Driver that could put a smile on my face, offer the latest technology in the category and be RELIABLE!

I want to give a shout out to my salesman Josh (908-456-0949) over at Hackettstown Honda (North West New Jersey), great shopping experience, no hassle and fair pricing. If anyone is looking in the North East, give him a call.

I just ordered some summer tires as the all seasons are average at best. I will say this, the suspension changes actually make a big difference from my seat of the pants test. I drove the 2013 many times and feel this is an improvement. If you are going to change the suspension, this will not be of any importance, but if you plan on keeping stock, it really helps.

Might do a few bolt-ons later (front strut tower brace, exhaust, cai, tune) but for now just breaking it in.

Great Forum with lots of info!

Thanks to all for the warm welcome! It really is a great car and I am having fun relearning how to drive a powerful front wheeler again.

As noted before, the spoiler on the sedan has not changed. As for changing the sway on a 13, in theory it should help, but I think the 14 is benefiting from the bar, dampers, spring rate change combo.

Looking forward to the summer tires which should be on this weekend. I will update once I get to push it along on a back road or exit/entrance ramp.

Will take away some of the body roll and the car will come around corners faster and also could improve some steering response.

I certainly noticed a difference with the Eibach kit. Don't skimp on tires. There is a big difference in how the cat handles depending on the tires you put on.
