I can overlook a slightly flimsy interior if I can find a mechanically solid M3. And I think the exterior looks fine.



If I find an M3 I will have it inspected thoroughly. And the ITR is like a...

I think I'd rather have the TSX than a Mazdaspeed 3.

A couple of people on another forum suggested the E36 M3. They said with a cooling system overhaul and replaced suspension components, it's a...

I owned a 2011 A3 sportback 6MT. Had an intake and Stage 1 tune on it. It was fast and hell (when the front tires had traction) and had a great interior, but I sold it at roughly 25k miles. Had...

I barely know anything about the older Focus SVT models. They seem pretty similar on paper to the EP3 Civic Si hatch, except the Focus has a 5 door option. Basically just an economy hatch with a...

Well I am an enthusiast, so I tend to lean towards enthusiast cars. A Legacy GT would be amazing, especially the wagon. Kinda forgot about those. But how is the reliability? I would keep it mostly...

$10k DD

I currently daily a completely stock 1999 Civic Si EM1 coupe. It's a good car, but I realized after only a few months of ownership that I want something with 4/5 doors and more torque. It's fun to...

Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge! Based on all the above, I think I'd better steer clear of the E36. I don't mind putting some extra time and money into a 2nd fun car (my S2000, which...

Out of curiosity, how much have you spent on maintenance on it so far? I'm looking for a new DD to replace my '99 Civic Si coupe and wondering if an E36 is viable when it comes to reliability and...

Technically not true, since the old Civic Hybrid and the newer CR-Z come standard with manual, although their hybrid systems are somewhat primitive.

Well, compared to my S2000, the new rumored one will surely be quite a bit heavier (3000+ lb) and lower revving (8k rpm on a production turbo 4 banger isn't really feasible). True on the AWD;...

Even if these rumors end up being true, which I think is maybe 5% likely, I just don't see the car appealing to the same kinds of drivers that the original S2000 did. Hybrid, AWD, likely no...

I voted V12 but on second thought I think I prefer V10's almost entirely because of two engines: the 4.8L 1LR-GUE in the LFA and the 5.7L 980 in the Carrera GT. Both sound absolutely demonic at 8000+...

I've driven this route a few times (with a caravan) and it's fine as long as you stay within the speed limit and on the right side of the road. As long as no one drives like an idiot it will be fine.

Not a fan. The side profile looks just like a 2013 Civic sedan. I'm curious to see what the hatch will look like, if there is one.
