...around here (Regina - hi Mike), 92-95 Civic owners are inclined to think they're still worth 10K CDN! Then I looked at old Consumer Reports mags for sporty cars in the $6K - $8K range and saw the NX was rated very well. Hmmm...40 more HP, T-tops, "handling reminiscent of the Miata", reliability, boomin' stereo, alarm, all power options, and gnarly good looks to boot for less than a plain ole' Civic...gee I wonder if I made a good choice? Added bonus I didn't know about when I bought it: you can hop this thing up like crazy! Catch y'all later...

I know the feeling Rian... I was mainly looking for Prelude/Civic/CRX Sis when I was used-car shopping last fall, but, I'm sorry, the cars aren't worth $8k. Hell, even average '88-91 Civic Sis go for $5k here! They just aren't worth that!

Talking about this makes me realize how incredibly lucky I have... for $5400 plus about $1500 in work, I have a car that would probably just barely lose to a $23,000 2000 Civic Si. Life is sweet

You've got more mods than me though, don't you? I've only got an HKS intake and a dent-bent 2-1/4" exhaust...

I was pretty encouraged when I beat a 5.0LX until 6500 in 3rd gear though... I think the 5.0 driver was a wee bit surprised
