As stated in the title this car is so much fun to drive. I spent months researching for what I call a "pocket rocket" and the Civic SI fills the bill with 2 thumbs up. The engine definitely revs high and I love Honda's V-Tec DOHC system that takes advantage of the upper rpm range, and it's not bad off the line either. The six speed close ratio transmission is so smooth I've never missed a shift. Gas mileage is good considering what it is (it's great if you stay off it but it's hard not to put the car through it's paces). I love the dash instrument layout (as many have said it's set up like a sport bike) and the seats are very supportive and comfortable (I'm 6 3" and am very comfortable in this car, I don't even have the seat all the way back and have plenty of leg room!). The Nighthawk Black Pearl paint is beautiful, it has a blue pearl in the paint that sets it apart from any other black paint. So far no complaints in quality but of course only time will tell. I would recommend this car to anyone, it's so much fun to drive!
It's ok not 100%
