Did a lot of research/test driving before buying my 2008 Civic Si coupe. I test drove the GTI, Cobalt SS turbocharged. Both the GTI and Cobalt SS turbocharged seemed quicker. The Cobalt SS turbocharged is most certainly quicker. Still both the GTI and the Cobalt SS turbocharged are 3-5K more in price. Both also cost more to own/maintain.
Researching problems found that the Civic Si had its fair share. Specifically the Civic Si has a third gear issue. I did find the TSB for this and made sure the Civic Si I bought VIN number was not included in the suspected list. Granted this does not promise anything, but it better then doing nothing. None the less, if the problem comes up, I have a offical TSB from honda explaining/forcing them to fix it.
So far, I love the car. For 19,500 it is worth every cent. It is not the fastest thing out there, but is is certainly quick when it needs to be. It will not beat no high liter V6 or any V8, but keeps up with any 4 cyclinder. I would state its performance similar to that of my 2005 Cobalt SS Subercharged. The only difference would be the the Cobalt SS Subercharged made its power early while the Civic Si makes its power late. If the two raced, the Cobalt SS Supercharged would pull off the line first, but the Civic Si would catch up and at the post 60mph mark and blow by. The Civic Si handles great. The LSD makes a lot of difference. Even with low grade tires, the car still holds the corners better then any of the competition I had driven.
The interior dash information layout takes a while to get use to. Still, I like it. The seats could be a little wider for my large back.
Overall, on a one to ten scale, I give the car a high 8.
