I have seen a lot of interest on forums for an Si version of the upcoming hatchback. I sent Honda an email asking that they consider it.

If you want one, let them know! View attachment 2488 View attachment 2488
I'm glad you posted this. I followed your lead requesting a stick shift Si hatchback that I WILL be buying if Honda will make it.

Honda offering both an Si Sedan and Si Hatchback would be great for them as an A/B test to see which model everyone actually prefers. But if they don't, would any of you be making your own Si Hatch? With a Hondata FlashPro update we should be able to make Si power.

I'd be really interested to see if anyone gets a response from Honda. I've never sent an email like this to a manufacturer.
This was the email response I got back:

"

That looks like one of those generic automated responses they immediately send back as a way to confirm they received your email. Do keep us posted on an actual response because that should happen sometime soon!

I'm honestly not anticipating a further response. It will take a lot of customer input to get them to move on this. But every bit helps.

Unfortunately that is true. I have a feeling they will be quite hesitant, otherwise it would've been done with the 10th gen after all these years. If they don't and the idea is dead in the water, up for making your own Si?

That $700 Hondata tune is a great start along with a limited-slip diff.
