I was never really a Civic fan to begin with but now having owned 3 of them a 93Si hatch, a 93DX hatch, a 96DX hatch plus a grown up Civic, a '97 Integra.... I've definitely changed my tune.

I guess what I really want to make noise about really is the fact that I still feel Honda gave up a good thing when they switched over to the mac struts. Then they effectively neutered the engine selections in base form.

I think I represent a very small minority that likes to tinker with their cars. 2 out of the 3 Civics I had, had engine swaps from Japan and the Integras. I can't deny there are a lot of RSX enthusiasts and 7th "gen'ers" out there but I suppose being from a small percentile, we don't see the new cars as being anything but rolling parts bins....regularly swapping their powertrains into the older chassis', despite being weaker and flawed in that regard.

Until Honda figures this out and brings us back wishbones.... I'll be saving my bux for a TSX. That or....*gasp* a non-Honda.
