As you become
slaves readers of Uncrate, you'll learn that we love Hondas — and especially Civics (we've owned no less than five between us). Our current favorite (until the 2006 Si comes out this fall) is the Civic Si with the Honda Factory Performance package (HFP). While it only slightly perks up the 160-HP engine, the HFP package adds a hatch spoiler, a complete underbody kit, a lowered suspension, and 17-inch gunmetal color alloy wheels. The interior gets the carbon fiber treatment, an aluminum shift knob, and red highlights that scream Type R (the holiest of Hondas). Unfortunately, the HFP package will add about $4,000 extra to the Civic Si base price of $19,320.
