I traded my 97 SHO for this CL-S. I
was pleasantly surprised by the
acceleration and handling of the CL-S,
but a bit disappointed with the minor
03 face lift. Where are the driving
lights, and the new wheels are a bit
boring. While I really enjoyed my SHO,
I've not really missed it. I do miss a
few features that the SHO had over the
CL-S, things like auto locking doors,
auto on-off headlights, and the
combination lock on the drivers door.
But these are all just nit picks.
Acceleration and handling, Seat
comfort, heated seats, in-dash CD
changer, solid build quality (so far),
interior layout and design, and did I
mention the seats?
Needs a bit more head room, lots of
wind rush noise when sunroof is in the
up position, no auto lock feature for
the doors, no auto-on option for the
headlights, needs a telescoping
steering wheel, and the 03 style
