I have had this car for a week, but have been lusting ever since it debuted in 2004. My wife bought it for me as a birthday present, and I have been ecstatically behind the wheel every day. The car handles the twisties with minimal body roll, and the engine is eager to rev. The steering is precise, and Honda does the best shifters in the business. The interior has the quality of cars costing 10K more.
Shifter, handling, XM radio, bluetooth, and supportive leather seats.
More power. Pop the RDX engine in here and SH-AWD and you would have a true Beemer beater.
