ReviewWhat can I say that hasn't been said already? Most amazing 4 cylinder engine ever built (105 hp per liter), near indestructible 6 speed, effortless clutch, excellent brakes with pratically zero fade after heavy braking, recaro designed leather seats, extremely compitent suspension that exhibits both incredible stablilty when driving agressive and maintains a civilized ride on long road trips and still manages high 20's mpg on the interstate. Don't gripe about creature comforts. This car was not built for that. If you want fancy interior and power everything, buy a TSX or TL. The K20 engine responds VERY well to mods. An intake, header and ECU tune will have you outrunning domestic V8's.
Best FeaturesHard to pick one favorite feature because the entire system works together as a whole. The engine and transmission are incredibly smooth and potent and the suspension is amazingly balanced. I recently took a trip to deals gap, TN and outran road race prepared domestics.
Worst FeaturesThe bose system was a nice touch but should be an option. Also, this car desparately needs the limited slip differential that the Type R in Japan recieved. The brakes are good but again, Japan got Brembos!! Also, HID headlights should be a factory option! It's the only Acura without them!!! :(
