Foam cut out passenger carpet
Hello all! I just got my new 2023 civic si yesterday from the dealership at MSRP!
While I was looking around the car earlier today, I noticed this weird cut out below the front passenger carpet. Is this normal for the 11th gen civic si? It shows the VIN when you pull it out.

Is the weather stripping on the 9th gen si coupe the same part for both doors? They seem like they are mirrored in design but i cant find a legitimate left or right side online to replace them, any insight?

2023.06.01 14:07 BigJeffAudio Big Sound Podcast Profile: DS18 Owner Sasha Susterman, Sales Rep Jason Martin, and “Mr. DS18” Rob Ferro

As we greet the new week, the Big Jeff Audio team is hard at work preparing for our next Big Sound by Big Jeff Podcast. This Thursday June 1st at 7:30pm ET we have another show filled with audio industry stars. Our guests of the night will be John Schneid with Dynamic Sales Marketing, a representative of Kicker, Soundstream, and Dynamat. We also welcome members of the DS18 team, including Sales Rep Jason Martin, “Mr. DS18” Rob Ferro, and Owner of the company Sasha Susterman.
Sasha started DS18 with his father in their garage in hopes to supply local shops with their products. His father Alberto told him “One day we are going to be a national brand.” Though Sasha wasn’t convinced at the time he soon knew DS18 could make huge waves in the audio industry. Today, the company provides equipment all over the world and has factories in Korea, Brazil, and China. From that first amplifier they have expanded their product line to over 200 high quality audio products. Now, the owner and some of his team will talk with Big Jeff about their journey and what’s next for the rapidly growing company.
Jason Martin is a territory manager for DS18 and is charged with maximizing growth with distributors and exploring new business opportunities in his territory. Jason has been involved in the audio world for many years but got his start in the automotive industry first distributing accessories like shift knobs, pedals, and muffler tips in 2000. From there he worked for various audio distributors before joining DS18 in 2016.
Our third guest from DS18 is Mr. DS18 himself Rob Ferro. Rob is the public image for the brand and can be found on many of the social media posts, PR and car shows for DS18. He found his passion for car audio as a teen; when he got his first car, he saved his money to install two 12” subwoofers. Now at DS18, Rob helps the company with research and development by keeping up with customers and trends.
DS18 is working on some exciting new product lines in the power sports space. They will be made available for some of the most popular powersports vehicles including Slingshot, SXS/RZR CANAM, Bronco 6th gen, and some new Jeep applications. “… Honestly I can’t explain how excited I could be!” said Ferro about the new releases.
We will discuss all this and more with our guests and give away some cool equipment. Watch the show on any of the Big Jeff Audio social media accounts to see if you can win. We are thrilled to have members of the DS18 team join us for our next Big Sound podcast this Thursday, June 1st. See you all there!

2023.06.01 04:17 BubblyProgress8182 Just joined the Honda club... 9th gen highs (and lows)

I just bought a used 9th gen SI, 70K miles. I drove it back home, multiple states away, and I can see why people love these cars. It handles amazingly well first and foremost, and revving this thing up coming off of off ramps and bends on the interstate had me laughing out loud out of joy at points.
I wish I could say this is a 100% positive post, but it's not. Let's just say in this first week of ownership, I'm now aware of the infamous 1st gear "Chewbacca" noise. It's become more apparent as I've driven around town. By this point, you can be sure that I've doom scrolled the 9th gen forums, hoping to find a clear answer on how to resolve this, to prove to myself that I didn't just waste a ton of money on a car that has well-known, persistent, unabating issues, but apparently replaced clutch systems on these cars often have the same exact issue reappear after about 15-40K miles. There are seemingly just as many "same issue here" posts as there are theories as to what exactly causes the noise.
While I've driven manuals enough in the past to be able to get around, this is the first manual transmission car that I've owned. I bought this with the impression that this would be a reliable yet sporty first purchase, after many hours of research. And my understanding is this mostly an issue that you can continue to drive on, but I can't help but feel slightly duped, and maybe even a little stupid for not catching this in my research or test drive. I really want to avoid taking it in already, as I will be making a few payments on this thing and they haven't started yet, and this would be a costly repair. So, I'm thinking for now I'm just going to try to isolate how exactly I'm driving when it makes that noise, and avoid driving that way as much as possible.
So, fellow 9th gen-ers, any words of encouragement? Can you talk me off this ledge? LOL.

TLDR - 9th gen I just bought is fun as hell, but has infamous 1st gear "Chewbacca" noises. How best to proceed? Thanks!

2023.05.31 15:30 spriggan4 If we had a 12th gen Si. What things would you want from it combining things from the 8th, 9th 10th, and 11th gens?

Gonna make a concept for the 12th gen civic si. The one thing is i want to combine multiple things from the last 4 generations. So what are your favorite things from the 8th-11th that you like and things you didn't like?

2023.05.31 12:00 cykrus_ What should I look out for on an 8th gen Civic Si?

I’m 16 and I’m going to be working over the summer so I can buy myself an 8th gen Si sedan. Anything I should be looking out for?
Also, if I am able to get one, what mods should I put on it first? I’m looking to get mods that will promote the longevity of the car and also make it have some more power in the future (turbo?).
I’m looking to do more performance oriented mods prior to visual mods because I’d like to work on the interior and engine bay before I start slapping on exterior mods that I’ll have to take off anyway to do the internal mods, would rather do that later.
I know a lot of people say to get a short ram intake/cold air intake but should that really be the first thing I mod it with?

Awards/Honors
List all awards and honors submitted on your application.
#1 AP Scholar with Distinction.
...yes, that is it. I couldn't find what awards I won in Science Olympiad and otherwise did not compete
Letters of Recommendation(
Briefly describe relationships with your recommenders and estimated rating.)
Physics and Biotechnology teacher (yes, you heard right, I submitted two STEM teachers while applying for a humanities major):
ngl these were probably both pretty average. I struggled with pretty bad anxiety (which I talk about more in the additional information section), so talking to teachers was extremely scary to me. I did good in both their classes and was a good group leader, but I didn't do anything outstanding (6/10)
Additional Recommendor-Piano Teacher: I read this and it was short but sweet (9/10)
Interviews(Briefly reflect on interview experiences, if applicable.)
Stanford (6/10): This was my first interview and therefore, it was pretty mid. I was super nervous and I think that was very clear when I anwsered the question. But the interviewer was very nice and I think she genuinaly liked the questions I asked.
Duke (9/10): This went much better. She clearly liked my anwsers and gave me frequent compliments. We talked a lot more about personal stories.
Cornell (1000/10): The interviewer was a ball of sunshine. She was so vibrant and really seemed to like me. I could definetely feel that the interview was non-evaluative because she was clearly trying to persuade me to go to Cornell (and it def worked). She wanted me to email her if I got accepted and she would invite me to Cornell alumni parties and things.
Essays(Briefly reflect on the quality of your writing, time spent, and topic of main personal statement.)
Personal essay -- Talked about learning ASL and the Deaf meetups. Discussed how it helped me come out of my shell and realize that fear is not something to fight; rather, it is better to acknowledge it and continue despite it. Writing my personal statement was the hardest essay I had to write and it casued me a lot of stress and anxiety, so I didn't think it was that good. But everyone else that read it loved it so idk. (8/10)
**Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)**Acceptances:
EA:
University of Maryland w/ CIVIC Program (I was disappoined I didn't get into the honors program, but got into a community service based community) (4.5k/year)
RD:

University of Washington w/ Honors (7.2k/year) - ATTENDING!!!

Waitlists:
None

Rejections:
REA:
Stanford
RD:
Duke
Brown
Cornell
University of California Berkeley
Additional Information:None of my middle school friends went to the high school that I did, and I started experiencing extreme anxiety about making friends. I had already previously dealt with depression, and with the added stress I experienced frequent panic attacks. It got so bad that I wasn't able to leave my house without having an anxiety attack and I accrued many absences in freshman year. COVID and online school honestly saved me (who knew taking a person afraid of people away from the people would ease their anxiety lol). I was diagnosed with a Social Anxiety Disorder and was privledged enough to get therapy and medication during sophmore year, I started making friends in junior year, and by senior year I was functioning as a relatively normal human being.
However, due to my mental health issues, my extra curriculars and letters of recommendations definitely lacked. I didn't talk about what I went through in my application because, one, I was worried about bias and, two, it's none of their business. Due to my disorder, rejections already cause a lot of anxiety (because I worry that other people don't like me like the admission officers) and I knew that if I put something that personal in my application and then got rejected (which was likely because I was applying to highly rejective schools), I would likely freak out. I was originally disappointed with my results (although they were expected), however no tears were shed. After visiting, UCSD and University of Washington (I had already visited the other schools), the choice was obvious to me. The University of Washington felt so right to me and I'm so excited to attend there in the fall. I also have won two scholarships (one national and one local) since my decision, and gotten a high paying summer internship that I'm really excited about! Go huskies!

2023.05.30 05:48 thrillhousecycling The impossible car I want that may not exist

Currently driving a 2022 WRX, lease. It’s a wonderful machine! But still debating if I’ll buy it at end of lease or not.
I make good money, but the more I make the more I want to pinch pennies.
Recommendations for a cheap(ish), reliable, kind of fun to drive car? AWD is not a must and not really needed in the PNW. Manual would be great though! I’ve got a kiddo and a small dog.
Cars I’ve considered:
Thanks all!

2023.05.30 00:21 jediyodafan Inexpensive cosmetic mods for 9th gen Civic

Hi all.

I have a 2013 Civic EX and love it quite a bit. It's only got about 30k miles on it, so it's still a youngun. But I was wondering what are some fairly easy or inexpensive cosmetic mods for interior and exterior that I could do to spice it up a little. I don't need it to look super sporty, or try to look like a performance things. I just want it to look less generic. Any ideas?

What's your fuel efficiency on your 2006 civic coupe? Maybe even 8th gen civic coupe, as well? I believe they're the same engine (with exception to SI), but not 100 percent sure.
Just wondering if my 15 L /100km is considered high.

2023.05.29 18:39 Data_shade I traded my GR86 for a MIAT


MIAT

Hi, it’s me. In January I traded my GR86 for an MIAT. Since then I’ve put about 2500 miles on including no track days and no auto cross runs, only 3 dealership visits for manual transmission failures.
PHOTOS
Why did I get rid of the GR86?
Space. The GR86 was simply too big inside, I could fit my wife's boyfriend, and their two kids in the back with car seats, however my passengers were miserable in the cramped GR86 so I downsized to leave them at home. Now my wife's boyfriend and I can ride the highways and the byways, top down. Me being me, I just couldn’t resist paying markup to get into the MIAT ecosystem, free market foresight be damned.
Why the MIAT?
I realized this segment is ideal for me. Many people moan about MIAT not being fast, but I’ve won more red light drag races against prius’es than I ever did in my GR86. This segment gives me fun cars that can do it all, as a midlife crisis “working man’s” sports car DD and something for weekend fun with mostly no compromises. I went down the list of usual suspects. MkV SoupBruh: too expensive. No TooJayZed. No character since it’s a BMW. Impossible to see out of. GRolla: a bit small in the rear to fit me and the wives boyfriend on our drive in movie dates. The MIAT works best for this. I don’t need AWD as it’s a gimmick since I will never drive the car anywhere where AWD will benefit me, and any other excuse means I’m in denial. GolfR: JDM(Jerman Domestic Market) therefore it’s mid and only lames drive them. I also considered a BMW DCT F80 M3/4/5(With a drop, LTW’s and clears) but it cost 3 times what a MIAT does and that’s bad value for money.
The MIAT checks all of the right driving boxes for me and even has the option to pick up dudes at the racetracks, who after I flirt with for a while are able to forgive me for buying an automatic MIAT. Until now, I’ve always had a manual. I’m not a die hard ‘I must drive everything stick’ type person, but I always enjoy driving stick on the street but have said for a while ‘I’d prefer if my shifting hand was in my wives boyfriends pants right now.’ Of course the one box MIAT doesn’t check is looks. Not nearly enough dudes are looking at me in this thing. I still have no idea how to get them to notice me in my MIAT. I hope the NE ‘24 refresh of MIAT makes it more appealing to dudes. As I’ve owned it(for 2,500 miles), MIAT has grown on me a little. Much like if your friends have a shitty kid and you’re lying and saying ‘yeah nah it’s uh… cute’. I do enjoy the soft ride quality of MIAT, taking it easy on my backside, but not the lack of adequate roll protection from the factory. We all know I will find a way to flip this thing and if I do before I save up for my roll bar it will be game over. I assume this is to weed out bad drivers? It’s like they designed it to kill bad drivers on purpose.
Interior
The interior is not good. The Mazda infotainment already cracked in the corner. Large, sharp screens obstructing my fucking view. Huge condescending gauge cluster with 130mph listed as top speed, MIAT easily exceeds that. I hate how everything rattles and shits crooked. CarPlay doesn’t fucking work. It doesn’t even have custom modes where you can fuck up your steering feel, fuck up the engine/throttle response, fuck up the automatic shift speed, fuck up the alignment and suspension, and make the exhaust annoy everyone with the push of a button… it doesn’t have any of that. What it does have, is DRL controls, and traction control. Want the LED Fangs on all the time, or not at all? There’s a setting for that. Want traction control on or off? MIAT has a button for you. Want to be annoyed when on track? MIAT has a front facing camera that will warn you about weaving and potential collisions so your instructor will lose all confidence in your driving ability on account of these driver aids not being able to be turned off. Why? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Some of the plastics are hard and depressing. Compared to the GR86, the interior is all the same hard plastics bullshit and three knobs for climate control in the center. They might as well be the same fucking car. At least Mazda doesn’t push a MIAT app we must install in order to use the car, that way they aren’t back door spying on us and we can trust Mazda as a brand.
One interior-ish Quirk and Feature, it doesn’t have radar based adaptive cruise control. Not sure what current Gen cruise control tech has to do with interior, but I’m stream of consciousness typing this out so just go with it. No whiz-bang cruise control in MIAT is not a huge dealbreaker for me, as I don’t go on long highway trips in MIAT as my life is over, but cruise control would be nice.
Driving
I like rwd. I like fwd. I’m definitely in the ‘if you don’t like fwd, then you definitely haven’t driven good fwd at the limit’ camp(sorry). Do I drift every T-junction full oppo? Absolutely. If I had to mansplain fwd, it would go something like this: I think the equivalent driving experience, to get fwd to mimic rwd, is you gotta approach the turn gran turismo style, or, as I call it, a more video game-ness approach, use the guy in front as your arca brakes while you understeer your way through a high speed right hander, then the eLSD kicks in and you can lie to yourself and convince yourself that fwd could be anywhere near as good as rwd no matter what bullshit drive train nonsense is printed in the brochure. I sure as shit can’t feel the difference, and neither will any of you. This is getting less and less fun to continue. Why would anyone write this much about a subjective experience between two cars in different segments entirely? Ones a 2+2 sports coupe and the other is a 2 seater roadster. A more fair comparison would have been the RF at least. Or, I dunno, Camry TRD vs Elantra N...........
The Dealership Experience
Literally who cares about this post enough to read this part? I walked in, got my 19.9% APR at 84 months with only $9,500 markup over MSRP, didn’t get the color I wanted or the trim level I wanted, but hey, I wanted out of my GR86 and into a MIAT asap, and the dealership I chose that day did just that for me.
On Track
I cannot track MIAT as the transmission will explode and warranty coverage will be denied. I go through cars like pairs of underwear so I’m really screwing over the next owner by taking this vehicle on track, which is why I don’t do that, ever ;) my GR86 came with a free track day courtesy of NASA(National Auto Sport Association) but on the warmup lap my S*baru📷 boxer engine spat a rod out of the block only 45 uninterrupted seconds of driving after I initially heard the knocking, I thought I could limp it to the pits, but alas.
Whats next?
Nothing for a while. Just gonna pick up dudes at the mall and the track, feed them vegan avocado toast and hard kombuchas until they swoon over my MIAT. My mom said I should have gotten the Civic type R(or, FK8 for those who ‘know’ ;p~) but that car is lame and not as cool as MIAT. The civic is too JayDeeEm and “boy racer”(whatever the fuck that means) for me, I don’t want to give anyone the wrong impression that I can actually drive and not just shitpost like a narcissist on Reddit. I know that I’m an expert at driving the MIAT because I got a one month subscription to iRacing one time and set a few laps in their MIAT and I didn’t crash. As you all know, iRacing is the real racing simulator used by pros all over the globe. That makes me, vis a vis, ergo, Concordently, a Global MX-5 Challenge racing driver irl.
Cons, Quirks and Features
None. It is MIAT, and as we all know, MIAT stands for:
-MIAT
-Is
-Always
-The
TL;DR:
I'm the main character, thanks for coming to my TED talk, MIAT is always the

2023.05.29 14:23 Moist-Accountant-516 Potential added cars for Driver: San Francisco

Driver: San Francisco is one of the best open-world racing games I've played. I really appreciated its story, Shift mechanic, and car diversity, but there were unfortunately too few cars for me. I understand that Reflections didn't have a lot of time to model a lot of cars nor were they able to license from certain manufacturers, but just imagine if there were no licensing restrictions. Here's a list of cars that I think would've fit Driver SF.
2010 Acura MDX 2010 Acura TL SH-AWD 2010 Acura TSX V6 1971 AMC Javelin AMX 2011 Audi A1 1.4 TFSI 2009 Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro 2008 Audi A4 3.2 FSI quattro 2011 Audi A8 6.3 FSI L 2010 BMW 135i Coupé 2009 BMW 330i xDrive 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo 2008 BMW M3 Coupé 2005 BMW M5 Sedan 2010 BMW X5 xDrive50i 2008 BMW X6 xDrive50i 2010 BMW Z4 sDrive35is 2009 Buick Enclave CXL 1987 Buick GNX 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe Police 2005 Chrysler 300C SRT-8 2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 2008 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 2011 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Coupe 2009 Honda Civic Si Sedan 2009 Honda Element 2009 Honda Fit Sport 2010 Honda Insight 2008 Honda S2000 CR 2007 Hyundai Accent SE 2009 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Grand Touring Coupe 2011 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2010 Infiniti FX50 2011 Infiniti G37 IPL Coupe 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 2008 Lexus GS 460 2008 Lexus IS F 2010 Lincoln MKZ AWD 2009 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S 2010 Mazda CX-7 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata 1995 Mazda RX-7 2009 Mazda RX-8 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 2008 Mercedes-Benz C 350 Sedan 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG 2007 Mercedes-Benz R 63 AMG 4MATIC 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR 2010 Nissan Altima 3.5SR 2008 Nissan Armada 2009 Nissan Murano LE 2010 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL Hatchback 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP 2009 Pontiac Vibe GT 2009 Porsche 911 Turbo 2003 Porsche Carrera GT 2009 Porsche Panamera Turbo 2008 Saab 9-3 2.8T V6 Aero Convertible 2010 Saab 9-5 Aero 2012 Scion iQ 2011 Scion xB 2011 Scion tC 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5XT Premium 1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STI 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Sedan 2010 Toyota Camry XLE 2010 Toyota Corolla XRS 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser 2010 Toyota Prius 2011 Toyota Sienna XLE 1993 Toyota Supra Turbo 
As you can see, most of these cars are everyday USDM cars sold between the mid-2000s and 2011. I know the Audi A4 exists in the game, but I changed it to a 3.2 FSI model for it to be balanced with the Alfa 159. Let me know what you guys think of the list, and I may add more cars, but I want to be careful with the additions because I want to create a balanced extended list.
I don't know if the Porsches can co-exist with RUF, but the Panamera and CGT don't have RUF equivalents.
