You actually paid upward of $30K for a Honda Civic?

I'm looking for a weekend Cayman but i would have considered an Mugen Si as a little diversion for sometime at that price. Bargain * 1,000,000.

THe dealer I got it from had no idea what this car was, I was lucky and found it only listed as an SI, But the color made me think it was a Mugen, it was and I bought it quick, even got them down a little from the low price they had it at, lol.. The closest price to this in the country was like 20 and change, and double the miles.
If you seen my other posts I been looking for a long time, patience paid if I think.

Awesome deal!!

Reminds me of when I bought my 2004 Ford Lightning with only 28k miles on it and the dealer (Nissan) didn't realize it had upwards of ten grand worth of real good quality mods on it. I snatched it up for only 23k...back in 2008 they wanted 31k for it..yeah right.

I hope your son enjoys it, did he ever get a chance to test drive an E36 M3 sedan?? Did he pick this or did you?? LOL...I'm curious, I'll be in your shoes one day.

Plus I went on a rant on your other thread....

Awesome!

Just tell him to be careful. Mugen parts are like crack to Honda people and they wont hesitate to steal them. My buddy in LA said the local dealers stopped leaving Mugen civics on the lot because they would get stripped over night.

He should not even say a thing like that, especially when you are buying him a car. A car is a car when you are a teenager.

Sometimes its a good thing there are clueless car dealers out there, lol.

Congrats on the epic deal, and you are one cool parent to get that for their kid. Best of luck with the new car.

I agree, but I asked for his input, he followed with "any car, is a car im happy.

He is a good kid.

The Civic Si is a great car, and a Mugen for $17k is a no-brainer. I'll bet your new Powerstroke didn't even know that car was back there .
