The highest that *I* have heard was 12000 rpm off of a spoon motor.

And it's a Honda, so you know it will be there for you when you need it.


That might be nice, but that's not cool.

Thats probably it which is still pretty damn high for a 4 cylinder.

I revise my statement.

The last cool Honda was the EK series Type R with the B16B motor.

So you don't think the S2000 is cool at all? Anyway, glad for the clarification, because I just noticed something I found a bit funny:

Hondas can not be cool.

Also I expect a lot of maturity from this forum. LOL FORD. or LOL HONDA SUX will not be appreciated on this forum.

What reference are you making to my maturity? Hondas are not cool cars. This is an objective and factual statement. That's like trying to call a new toyota cool. Its just not going to happen.

I just don't see how "lol Honda sux" is inherently different than "Hondas cannot be cool." The grammar is better but that's it. And you yourself said that you wouldn't tolerate comments like the former.

"Coolness" is neither an objective nor a factual issue. It can't be measured like curb weight or horsepower. Coolness, like beauty, is purely in the eye of the beholder.

You have to realize how biased these words sound coming from the fingers of someone with the title "Likes boring cars". You have personally barred yourself from ever being any respectable authority on cool within these forums because of who you are.

You talk about BORING and UNCOOL stuff. "Omg what about safety." "Wow look at the economy figures on this vehicle." "I think this is a fine vehicle and will fufill its target niche with ease." I swear to god I need a pillow sometimes when I'm reading your posts. Face it guy, you're not a cool person. Fact of the matter is, if I could, I'd nullify your votes on the cool wall. But I don't have that power, and well, I don't *really* care that much.

Whether or not you have the same tastes as me is totally irrelevant. Though I'm sure you could just use the "ignore" function if my posts are that painful to you. EDIT: In case you missed the point, it's not my subjective take on the Civic Si that's the issue. You yourself, as a moderator, made a rule that you can't just make stupid statements like "Honda sucks" on the cool wall. Yet here you are, in this thread, making that exact same statement. Do moderators not have to follow their own rules?

And to re-emphasize: "coolness" is subjective. It is NOT an objective or factual issue. No amount of bitching, name-calling, or penis-waving can change this.

If you think the statement "Hondas are not cool cars" is a fact you're probably going to need a shovel to get your head out of your ass. Besides, weather somthing is cool or not is completly opinion in MOST cases. If everything was just cool or uncool and that was just the way it is then there wouldnt even be a cool wall. This is probably one of the most retarded discussions I have ever seen on the internet.

The sooner you come to terms with your own lack of cool, the better off you will be.

Uncool. Needs more torque and a less pudgy exterior.

Frozen.

200hp for 20k. 6-speed manual. Better than average looks inside and out. Honda reliability and quality. Can't beat that.

Only part I don't like: VTEC symbol on the side (not hard to get rid of, of course)

I don't think Honda's are cool, Honda engines on the other hand are very cool.

This thing looks disgusting. Honda F1 are bad enough to give Honda an uncool reputation, but they can't help themsleves with this. The regular Civic was designed to make young people more interested in it. Take the wing off this, add hubcaps and you're right back to square one, with the average driver age of this set at 55.

The average 55-year-old Civic driver wants an 8000 rpm redline, 43% more hp than other Civics, and a six-speed manual?

Im not saying that the average driver age of 55 is wrong, but I really find it quite hard to believe.
