19K for the Civic Si or 20 will get you into an entry RSX. Of course, while you're there, the Type S is only 23K....not hard to see why they aren't selling any. The FP? Completely rediculous....besides, most who want a "tuned" car want to be involved with the "tuning". That's probably half the reason for doing it.

Personally, I stay away from both. Insurance on two/three-doors is reason enough not to buy. Go TSX!

Well, most people stink at tuning, especially suspension tuning. Honda provides a fully tuned suspension package. Anyway, I highly doubt that Honda will sell many FP packages. In my opinion, the only upgrade you really need to get for a Si is the Hondata reflash.

Don't forget the wheels and tires.... The suspension is fine with me, a bit soft, true, but a good compromise. But it does need bigger wheels and tires.... 16 inchers for me.

I've looked into the new '04 tires and they're All Weather too.... I wonder why AHM keeps playing cruel jokes on us with their tire choices.

Tony, regardless of what you believe to be true, there is an entire country that exists outside of California. Some places actually get this stuff called snow. It's a frozen form of rain. Crazy, right? ;)

Oh, I think you should consider a set of SSR Competition wheels for the OTR. Lightweight, and oh so pretty.

Now don't be so harsh on me, we do get snow in California too.

My concern is that the tires that are going into Honda's nowadays are not that good in the dry nor in the wet.

For example, my 93 Vigor had good Bridgestones, then when time came to replace them, the dealer put in the new OEM Michelins which were bad.

My GSR and Type SH had Michelins, which although not great, were better than the ones that come in the RSX-S.

Oddly, it isn't that AHM is putting "cheap" tires.. perhaps they got a deal with Michelin on F1?

I've had my '04 SiR since June, since then I never had any regrets. It's the best car for the price (when, of course, you buy it at the end of the year with so many rebates, as for me, it was 4000 CDN$ rebate that motivated me...) Yes, I've considered an RSX, which I believe has a much nicer look. But, you have to consider that for almost for the same price, you don't get any goodies in the RSX... No sunroof, no cruise control, etc. And also, the interior as very cheap seat finish! It almost looks like an old Volkwagen! I'm not that old (31) but I love this car for all it does for me. It reminds me of the older civics I loved so much (1500S and the first Si), and since, at the time, I could never afford a brand new one, I'm now in paradise!

Also, the fact that there are almost no SiR sold around, everyone looks at my blue SiR wondering what is it. I like the looks. There are so many RSX on the road...
