Im trying to decide what car I wan to get when I graduate. I really like the looks of the Civic Si, but word has it that it is quite lacking in the torque department(and because of the compression of the engine, adding a turbocharger would not really do much i think....). Also, it only has 200 hp. The Z has 300, and is only 3000$ more. The Z is also slightly smaller, and I really like driving small cars.
Does anyone have a good word for either of these cars, or a small car with similar performance in the price range?
I really like the mazda speed 3! so roomy yet quick... and decent looking(not compared to the Z tho but i really could care less at attracting girls with my car... at the moment at least ). Has anyone driven one of these? I am really interested. When I drive these days i usually have 3-4 friends in my car.
