they r more faster too, the si have gone from being a mediocre factory performer w/ a huge aftermarket to being a great performane deal straight "out of the box". i dunno if i like the new styling though, but watever.

The performance of the new Si is supposed to be something like 210hp. Which is very impressive.

Why did they make the Si 200 hp 6speed when the RSX-S is already there? They are going to compete against each other, why would honda want that?

The RSX is being axed by the 07 model year. There is still distinct differences between the RSX-S and new Si. For one there is a lot more luxury in the RSX-S than the Si (leather and whatnot)

Same price (under $20k). Without navi that is. Navi adds on another $1700 or so.

197hp according to the new rating system Honda has adopted. On the old system it would be close to 210hp though. Seeing some preliminary dynos though of the new Si...it looks as they are putting down CLOSE to 190fwhp ( which is about 225 or so crank hp).

They continue their giant lead with the Civic even more-so now. It'll be harder to pickup a new 06 Civic than it was an 05 Mustang when they came out! My local Honda dealer I'm at a lot of the times said they have already gotten 130 orders for the 06 Civic (And it doesnt come out for a few weeks). And yes, dealer markups will be rampid for a while.
