I rest my case. FYI: "affect" is a verb and "effect" is a noun. I am just jealous because you have a top line Civic."Local" roads? Not everyone has a lack of respect for those around them. If anything I value others lives more than my own but that's how depression is. Who are you to say what I do with my own life so long as it doesn't effect others? There's a huge difference between a connecting highway and an area with houses/ populous near the road. I didn't come to be scrutinized for my actions. And you seem to assume immaturity from me from the fact that I have driven fast on a highway as if most Si owners have never done so themselves. Maybe speeding is just more common in my state but it always seems the majority of people speeding are out of state.. Hell it's not even like that's how I typically drive, never did I make it out to be that I push the car to its limits or act as if I'm on a track when I'm not.. But I live near no tracks, have no wish to drive this car in the state it's in on a track and thus the occasional exertion of the cars ability isn't something I should be grilled for. Thanks though for assuming I am a certain way; in turn you honestly just make yourself out to be an ass even though that appears to be what people here are looking on me as. I wouldn't have bought the top of the line Civic if I didn't intend to drive it how it's intended on occasion..
