Personally i wouldn't take a b16 over any si model that was ever produced. That said, i love my b15, probably more then any car i've ever owned.

In order of fav. to least fav. this is the list of cars i've owned.

1. 06 b15 (current)
2. 01 gsr integra
3. 00 civic si
4. 88 t-bird (lol, not an ordinary bird here)
5. 04 rx8 (minus the gigantic ***** magnet it comes stock w/ i fell out of love w/ it and phukkin hated it by the time i traded it in for my b15).

integra gsr: ups- sexy, b18c1!, reliable, good mpg / downs- stock susp. was nothing special at all, insurance rates, no torque, carrying passengers DRASTICALLY reduced acceleration until about 7k rpms, stolen and chopped in 01-07

civic si : ups- looked good (imo), stock suspension/handling better then gsr, reliable, good mpg, fun to drive. / downs- my penis produces more torque, stolen and chopped in 04-07

rx8: ups- rwd, amazing handling/cornering, sexy head turner / downs: linear hp curve made it feel like your waiting for a boost that never shows up, terrible mpg , temp sensitive (doesn't like heat or cold), cramped in ****pit, no cargo space, unreliable....everything falls apart/needs replacing after 50k mi's.

b15: ups- TORQUE! going uphill or carrying a passenger doesn't kill acceleration like hondas n pulls nice in all 6 gears, good mpg, reliable (so far), brembos came stock, nice factory suspension for handling/cornering, roomy for a compact, looks nice (minor cosmetic mods help)....all around great car IMO. downs- perpetual feedback of stiff suspension letting you know of every little bump/crevice in the road annoys (sometimes), can't think of anything else negative to say lol.

Acceleration:

1. coin toss for rx8 & b15 (slight edge to rx8 if it wasn't hot outside...maybe)
2. gsr ( before mods, about the same after.)
3. si

Looks: (personal preference)

1. coin toss for gsr n rx8 (sexy)
2. coin toss for b15 n si (nice looking)

Handling/cornering:

1. rx8 hands down! (I miss taking corners hard in this thing)
2. b15
3. si
4. gsr (no suspension mods made it very roly poly and squatted like it was about to take a **** on take off).

interrior room / cargo space:

1. b15 (no brainer)
2. coin toss for gsr n si
3. rx8 (what room?, trunk made a suitable lap top holder)

Ride: (smooth)

1. gsr
2. coin toss for si n rx8
3. b15 (perpetual feedback of every slightest bump i hit occasionally annoys)

Reliability

1. b15, gsr, si wash thus far
2. rx8 and reliability do NOT go in the same sentence!

you are what you are because of the thoughts that dominate your mind.
