To everyone who helped stop me from buying some knock off rims. Just my luck my 2000 Honda Civic SI got a blown out engine on the way back from schoolyesterday and the new engine will cost $6,000 to fix. Anyone have any suggestions on what car to get next? looking to spend less than 15K due to the fact thatI have to use this SI as a trade in to get out of my current loan with the bank.

Here are some pics...enjoy

Before the G35 and M3 comments come...

Get a new Civic Si sedan. Not the fastest thing of course, but it gets the job done, has potential, and its a four door. I know damn well sometimes you wishyou had a four door while you were driving your car.

I noticed that my oil presure light was blinking so I took it in to a shell gas station for an oil change next thing you know when I get back from class Idrive off and 5 minutes after I started driving my engine blew it's load on the freeway. LOL


I luckily pulled over to the side of the freeway and by then it would not start back up. Just finally was able to mechanic today and that's what theyquoted me.

the great thing about hondas is that a problem like that is so cheap and easy to fix. no need for a new engine, you can just swap in new parts that will giveyou a little more power

Get on a Honda forum and ask local people about yards or shops that sell engines. Or ask around my area. There's also many websites you can go on and havethem ship it to the shop you'd have swapping it in then you just gotta pay the shop for labor + towing your car there. Cant trust all sites though, manyare shady.
