Honda Civic, Acura RSX, Coupe, Hatchback

I have been looking to purchase a RSx for about 3 months now(financial issues) and on the way to the Acura dealership i decided to stop by the Honda dealership. I test drove the SI and loved it! it is quieter than the RSX (i drove the Type-S) and the shifter is like butter (MHO). I decided the second i was on the freeway doing almost 100 (really cool sales person told me to take it to the max! gnarly) i was going to get this car. I got quoted for a brand new (comes in a week) black 03 SI with some protection package, wheel locks, mud flaps, fog lights, 16 in' rims and some other stuff for 17,500. I cant wait, if anyone lives in San Diego i recommend Pacific Honda. They are great at lowering the price and adding extras. Very happy, and i will agree with everyone else, i love the seats!

They lowered the price because they're trying to get rid of the '03 Si Civics...they're freshening the styling for '04 and it won't be so
"guppy-ugly"...so unless you're really in love with the looks of the current model or it's about price, go for it. But if you want a HOT lookin' Si for a couple thou more in a few months, wait.
#93 of 100 do you have information

that they are going to raise SI's price by $2K, or do you mean that they will give less discounts once the looks are improved?

Congratulations on your new Si. I like the shifter placement and action better in the Si also. It's an outstanding car.
I haven't heard anything about an 04 freshening. Although no matter how the car looked, I don't think it's worth MSRP ($19,500) without some more power.

Of course it will be more...the new styling is going to be way hotter than the current version (they'll redo the headlamps and front faschia...as well as maybe rear).
I honestly like the looks of the Si as it is right now...the thing that I do NOT like is the hard plastic dash...it is the same look as the Civic Coupe's but it has hard plastic instead of soft-touch (which i VERY much prefer). It also has a weird lower tray area just above the knees. I'm 6'4 and that bothered me when test drove the '02 Si. Anyways, they probably won't be as generous with the price for the '04...but like I said, if it isn't about $$$ then go for the '04 instead.

Go to Google and type in "College Hills Honda" and it should pull up their website. On that site is an update page. They've been reliable so far and that's where I'm getting this info.

every SI hatch since they began has had the tray in the passenger seat - great for storing stuff, but does often interfere with foot/knee space for the passenger!
