Default New Si (06 production?)

Check out http://www.vtec.net/articles/view-ar...icle_id=396413 !!

The new Si looks pretty swell eh? Observe the K20? powerplant, sweet
looking interior, 6 speed, the Nav option, the unusual maroon (like the old
crx si's, yeah!) color, AND 5w-30 on the oil cap. Dunno about the digital
speedo though. Yay! I want one, yep.

love that.

Who knows what the price will be. Navi option ?? I guess we are talking
about 25k or more when including dealer markups. Still like my 5th gen
Prelude more.

Yeah I have a feeling it's gonna take off like the 99-00 Si's, even today
they are fetching 75-80% of their original price. I certainly expect some
price gouging with this model. If I was to buy, I would wait until the 07's
and see what the demand is like then. Maybe you close with 25k, it
certainly is a lot of car (powetrain, classic lofty Honda redline, and lsd)
but I don't think markups will last too long, especially with the current
oil climate, I think the market will be a little soft for anything
performance, this puppy will take high test no doubt.

How much bigger than an Integra do you think it is?
I doubt it's significant.

I just wish it were a hatchback.
They're much more useful and versatile(for us one-car owners).

I wish they still made the Prelude and the Integra.
The RSX looks ugly compared to the Integra.

The exterior looks sweet. As for the interior, I'm not too keen on the
digital speedometer.

Any pics of the new sedan floating around?

The hatch is what sold me on the Integra waaay back in 1991 when I was
replacing my '82 Corolla.

With my job, I wanted carrying capacity, but I didn't want a station wagon
or a minivan. Toyota that year had no hatch, so they were out. The Civic
was too small. The Integra had a 4-door sedan, or a 2-door hatch. The hatch
it was. And I liked the styling and the engine.

Nissan had the 240SX, which I found really attractive on account of its
rear-wheel drive, but the lowest price I could get was $6,000 higher than
the lowest price from an Acura dealer.

I decided rear-wheel drive, as much as I wanted it, was not worth a $6,000
premium. So here I am.

I had two hatchback Accords,then I had two Preludes,86 and 90(90 trashed in
2 hailstorms),and then they made the ugly Prelude,so in 94 I bought the new
model Integra GSR.It was the 1st without the auto seatbelts,which I
despise.I would have bought the last model Prelude,but circumstances
prevented that.I really loved the Preludes I had. Handled like they were on
rails.I like the Integra because it has great power and great brakes.

Check out www.vtec.net, there's a ton of info and pics of all production
trim lines. I read the MSRP of the new Si is 19,600 and 20,300 with Navi,
what a bargain! Speculation will end soon, today, 9/1 Honda will release
all official info including MSRPs.
