Let's add to your list:Civic SI con: high theft rateRSX Type S con: high theft rate & ECU theft rate is on a major rise. Don't get me wrong, they're both nice cars, worth the price...........just not enough power for me.But if the 350Z is too much and a major drawback is it's a 2 seater. Why not add 1 more car to your list.Subaru WRX4 wheel drive, 230 hp, 237 lbs of torque. 0-60 is faster than the Civic SI and the RSX Type S. And you can easily find it for $22k right now.

go with the upscale honda. acura rsx type s should give the balance of looks and horsepower for your first car.

For your first car, you should get a beater so you really learn how to drive before spend a lot of money.

How about none of them...considering it is your first car and your only 16...you're just gonna end up crashing it into something anyways. Nothing worse then young inattentive drivers behind the wheel of a car they cant even handle.Get an older car that is manual so you can actually learn to drive safely first, then get a faster, more sporty car when you're ready.Think of your insurance too. They are going to make a killing off you for being so young and driving a brand new sports car. Odds are likely that your gonna get tickets or into an accident too and then the insurance is really gonna sky rocket!Another thing is...think about how your gonna drive. Your gonna pound the p*ss out of that car from stoplight to stoplight, so every other day you will be back at the gas station filling up or you will have mechanical problems from beating the crap out of it.There is alot more to driving than what kind of car you drive around, young grasshopper.Don't get me wrong though...I am not trying to discourage you...I am just trying to open your eyes a little bit...those are things you have to think about.Anyways....go with a Si or the RSX Type S when it comes time to make a decision.
