After my 96 Corvette bit the dust with
only 60,000 miles I went car shopping.
Considered the Nissan Z and the
Infiniti G35 coupe but kept coming back

after long road trips. The CL-S is the
perfect compromise between luxury and
sport with Honda reliability. After

Heated leather seats, Xenon headlights,
great stereo, great road trip cruiser.
Rear wheel drive would probably have
helped the "front heavy" feel, but a
silly point now that Acura discontinued
the CL... will have to buy an 03 next.
