Grassroots Motorsports LIVE! on Tuesday, October 10: A Look Inside the New Honda Civic Si

Join us live in the shop for Q&A while we examine Honda’s sporty coupe.

The question is, the specs line up with the Fiesta ST, but the price lines up with the Focus ST.  So is the extra $$$ worth it for a stock Limited Slip?  If's its in HS, definitely!

Sadly, yes, no Civic Si hatch. The Civic Hatch Sport is a neat car, too.

For a daily, I think the Si's exhaust is fine, no?

Digital speed but yes, it has a tach, water temp and fuel gauge.

I tuned in last night to the show, nice work as usual! I've been eyeing these lately for a potential replacement for my trusty-but-aging 2012 Mazda 3. It was cool to see the car on the lift, and JG pretty much answered all the random questions I had about it. Even trivial stuff, like where the oil filter was located, was covered. 

If you guys need anyone to do some "winter testing" with a new Civic Si, I'm about a mile from the New England Motor Press's headquarters. wink
