Im 51 and this is the 1st import I have ever owned. The car is amazing! The ride is smooth and the road feel is taught, but not "stiff". You can nail the gas pedal and hear it just come to life like a wild animal or take it out for a quite cruise at 70 while playing Motzart. The body style is unlike anything else on the road. And the quality and attention to detail is unsurpassed at this price. The Chevy Cobalt Supercharged version is in the same price range. But look closely... it doesnt hold a candle to the quality of the RSX Type-S.
The sunroof I love along with the "feel" of the leather. Dash vents spin a full 360. The sound of the motor and it power band is impressive too. Love the michilens and 17 inch wheels along with the phat stainless steel exaust tip. And believe it or not the glass is much clearer than US cars have.
The BOSE system is just ok and needs upgrading. Steering wheel radio controls would be nice. A power drivers seat would be great. Perhaps another 50 ponys under the hood would make this a Mustang killer !
