This site...

WTF is this web site doing to me?! All this morning I was thinking about trading in the Si for a GTS. Thankfully I've now come to my senses. grin

I'm just pissed off with my car right now cause my 2nd gear problem is getting worse. It's a common problem with the new k-series tranny's though, so hopefully it'll all be fixed soon enough and I'll forget about the GTS completely.

My lugnuts require more torque than my Honda produces.

you should definately trade the Si for a GTS, the GTS is faster, and just all around better

No I know where I am, and I fully expected to hear everybody say get a GTS; that's why I started this thread, just for fun. I have no problems with any of the other responses; I even laughed at that picture you posted. "honda suck" is not a very useful comment though, and "you'll definately be respected more"...what is this F&F?

just get a cadalliac escalade and put some 24 inch spinners on there. get a banging sound system. put on a nice throwback with a matching pinwheel hat, and go drive around. you'll get respected for sure.

If I had to drive a (non-S2k) Honda, the Si wouldn't be a bad choice. It does have some perks. Mainly, there are so many aftermarket parts that the windshield could be the only stock part left on the car if you wanted.

The Si is obviously a different class car than the Celica; it's not really a fair comparison. It's like putting our car up against a G35... the price difference is about the same as between a Si and a loaded GTS.

exactly...respected more because Honda's are nothing compared to some Toyota's...
and because the Civic has the worst publicity there is and is riced out all over...whenever anyone sees one, the first instinct is some dumb kid or person driving it..has a bad rep thumbsdown

Okay haha...so then why did he use that for his argument?


first off, it's GM, not chevrolet...GM owns like a millon different car companies so yea, their sales will be higher...

Toyota is two companies - Toyota and Lexus and they are number TWO...

Ford is comprised of a few also like GM, just not as many and they are three...
then you have Honda...
the argument is that Toyota outsells Honda and there is a reason for that...quality, design, what you get...
obviously, toyota does something better than Honda

Haha. Okay, what's your point.


his point is that you're saying if you want to get a SS and go to a camaro forum and post the same thing you did here...you'll get the same response...they will say Camaro and that Honda suck...

Wow...I admit you make some very good points with your posts. (I'm not saying that sarcastically either)


In response to your first post: Yes I can see how Civics have a bad reputation on the streets because most are very poorly customized, but I don't really think I carry that reputation with me because...well my car is stock.

In response to your second post: Once again, good point. I did not think about how big GM was before I made my statement about buying a Camaro.

In response to your third post: Yeah I'm sure I probably would catch heat from some people for going on an F-Body forum and saying I drive a Civic, but I don't think that's what Beans meant with his post, and I still don't understand what his point was.

All three posts are well said. thumbsup

it's cool man. See, I have no problem with Honda's at all really...there is just a bad rep for some of them and when I usually see them, there are stupid people driving them...not calling you dumb or other people like that, it's just what type of cars people like thumbsup


I would just recommend a GTS over a Civic for a lot of reasons...but you can do whatever you like man thumbsup

No offense taken.


Hey I'll be honest, I like Celicas just as much as the next guy. My brother actually has a '91 Celica GTS which, even though it's a 13 year old car, it's still pretty dang cool. I just happen to LOVE the Si (I'm not just talking about my Si either, I mean all generations of Si) and as it is, I'm happy with my car...and by the looks of your sig, you're happy with yours thumbsup
