One benefit of the ASpec Tech over the Si, at least on Michigan roads:

"The adaptive dampers that were standard on the previous Si aren't offered on this car. That equipment is instead reserved for the new Integra A-Spec, which is essentially an Acura-badged Civic Si with leather seats. Here, there's no comfort mode for our aging backs and growing bums."

That's a pretty nice advantage to have over the Si. I remember when they brought those dampers to the Si people were really liked them.

I read on a few forums that people didn't use them much before it was just two settings, and the firm setting was too firm. If you're gonna do adaptive dampers, I think it's good to have three modes...an every day mode, a mode for bombed out roads, and then a sport mode for when you feel frisky. Just two really loses out.

Yeah that's true, a third mode would be good to get the right balance.

Do you see it as a deal breaker for some people?
There are comparable cars on the used and even new market, so I think people won't hesitate to try those out.
