This is my first Acura vehicle in a
long time (last one was a 1997 NSX
which I still own) and though I've not
even had it a week, the car is
wonderful! My other car is a 2001 BMW
330Ci so I can offer direct comparison
to them. The Type-S's sonorous, rev-
happy V6 is AWSOME...the the 5spd auto
is no manual, it's not bad! The Acura
blows the BMW away as far as standard
features go. As far as driving, the
Acura isn't as fun to drive nor is it
as tossible as the BMW but overall is
much more comfortable. The build
quality is good, but the interior
materials are nowhere near the quality
or as appealing as the BMW's.
The in-dash changer, the engine, the
in-dash changer, the engine, the nice
bright gauges, the engine....
The sunroof is way too small when open
and the quality of the plastic isn't
great on the interior. The copious
amount of Honda Accord switchgear is
blahh. Steering is wayyyy too light,
and the brakes are a bit too weak.
