The 1.5T would have been a GREAT Fit Si engine. It also would make life in our HR-V much more tolerable. That said, the HR-V is too small, so I might trade it in for something else in the...

The gripe is that a car like the GTI is substantially faster than it was 10 years ago and the Si is not. It has also traded away a huge amount of character in the process. It corners flatter, but...

You can buy whatever you like, just like I can and I never said otherwise.

The funny thing is that you are complaining about me "slamming my opinions down your throat," but you were actually the one...

Yeah, but it wasn't stock. You can start to modify the others too.

I liked pretty much everything about the Si. Except the engine. It didn't help that I tested it in 95* Texas heat and the thing...

I disagree. The Accord engine is actually vastly different than the Type-R in this day and age. It is around 50+HP down on the CTR stock, and quite a bit of torque and the difference is magnified...

The open diff isn't too much of an issue on this car unless you are really launching the shit out of it. It corners pretty flat and had relatively wide tires, so it isn't bad in corners (especially...

I've thought about that Buddy Club BBK, but they are pretty spendy for what you get.

There is another kit that basically retrofits the stock RL calipers to the knuckle and then you use a bigger...

Younger generations are increasingly eschewing freedom for central control. They also don't seem to put the same priority on "freedom of driving" or the automobile as previous generations. Perhaps...

No, because the reality is that for L5 automation to work for cars, the number of variables will have to be managed. That means no random chaos, I.E. the lawmakers and supporters will push to ban...

It doesn't consider that for real L5 autonomous cars to work safely (and more importantly, for the public to buy into it) all other forms of driving would probably have to be outlawed. After all,...

Mine was in fact an OBD-1 from a 1995 Prelude manual.

Not sure if there were any major differences between auto and manual parts though.

That said, I have noticed that most FITV's of that vintage...

Time flies!

This car turns 28 next month and I will have owned it for 20 years in December.

This thing needs some love.

I guess they weren't kidding when they said "mild hyrbid" :lol:

We used to do 33-34 Highway pretty easily at ~80MPH in the '04 and '06, and both averaged about 26-27 City.

Surprisingly, the 2013 AT...

That's surprising. That really isn't much better (if any) than what we averaged in both of our 7th gen V6's. I am sure it probably does a little better with city MPG though.

The technical term for them is cannon plugs. You can find all sorts of them if you search for them that way. They are pretty standard in the aviation industry.

The 09 TL would have probably been a breakthrough product for Acura had it not been so ugly. I don't even think it was the styling as much as the proportions.

The problem is that it is competing against cars with bigger engines that are equally capable. It brought a Fit engine to a 2 liter gun fight.
