yup i have that issue, unfortunately it placed tenth out of ten and also got the

worst overall grade. Then again, you see the cars it was competing with and

appreciate the fact that they even chose it to keep up with all these other cars. If

anyone wants it, I'll scan the article for everyone to read

I agree. But the fact they would put in in a competition with covettes, porches and and bmws...it was expected..still, even competing was an honor.

i don't get why the guy in the video said he couldn't see the speedometer when the Si driver seats allows you to move up and down and not to mention the steering wheel does move up and down and can be pulled toward you or pushed in.

you adjust the steering wheel and seats to the position where you're comfortable...not so you can see the tachs.

well it finished dead last so i wouldnt say it "can compete with cars twice, triple, and quad its price range". it was a comparison. i can write an article comparing my car to a three year-old on a tricycle, but it doesnt mean it would be competitive. the si's lap time was over 3 sec behind the second to last car (mini cooper), and its direct competitor, the mazdaspeed3 beat it by almost 5 sec.

two of my good friends both have recently purchased si sedans, and while they are very fun, they lack power and the handling is "sporty", not great.

I'm mad they didn't include the new G35 in the comparison. I wanted to see how it handles compare to the 335.
