New Guy from N. CA (Bay Area)

I'm new and trying to get educated a little before I purchase an SS.

I currently commute with and periodically track both my Yamaha R1 and C5 Z06. I'm going to be starting night school in a few months and I need something fun with good gas mileage that I don't mind leaving in the school parking lot every night. So far I think the SS is my best choice.

I saw some tests online saying that Civic si's were nice sporty small cars. Then read more tests saying the SS is faster, if maybe not quite as nice. I test drove both and obviously the SS is way faster than an Si. Since performance is the most important feature to me I guess it's going to be an SS.

I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can about the car before I buy one sometime in the next few months.

If there are local Bay Area dudes that are willing to show me stuff about the car that would be a great addition to whatever I can learn from reading about it.

Thanks,

Dog
