Hello ppl,About me:So i owned a 2009 lancer ralliart and wanted to drive a stick, so i moved on to an 8th gen civic and gave my brother the ralliart.-2009 Lancer Ralliart -
took the vinyl off( too ricy lol)-My 2010 civic has I/H/E here is a video -
-civic tunnel run
After a year i decide to get something faster, so i got an evo x here is a race between my brother's ralliart and my evo
-mods intake exhaust and tuneEvoPros- Fast, AWD, Handling, appearance, that is about itCons- Gas,Insurance,weight of the car,Slow off the line unless you burn the clutch, maintenance, and moreSo i decided to go to a 9th gen civic si b/c i missed my 8th gen civic si, it was fun and fast.So far, i love the 9th gen civic so much more torque. V-tec>turbo, i love how fun it is going up to speed with v-tec better than a turbo. Thus keeping my car all motor :). Also this car is so much lighter than my evo which makes it fun to drive. I don't go to the track a lot just do a lot of street racing so i love how light my civic is :)Can't wait for Flashpro to come out, til then i will remain stock hahaMaybe i will slip in a mod or two lol

Nice! Welcome back...the si isn't the fastest car but for the daily commute and just having fun on the street, its hard to beat. To me its like when I was a kid driving a go kart around. The si is a go cart for adults....by age that is...

I actually like the interior a lot more than the 8th gen, the only complain is sliding arm rest, cup holder cover, small handle bar on the door (can't put phone in there anymore), and lastly no extra pocket for the center console. I usually put my glasses there. That is the only negative. For rev to 7k, i don't really care, more torque haha and bigger engine. :)

Fuel econmy doesn't bug me. Rather have more power and far worse fuel economy.
