I went from a 1993 Honda accord with 250,000 mi on it to this brand new 2008 TSX 6 speed manual. The car is fun to drive, love the interior, tame when you want it to be, and gives you that push back in your seat feel. Plus it is fully loaded. Your options are, with nav or without. This is what I did not like about the Lexus IS 250, you had to compromise on gadgets.
Particularly the shifter and clutch. I also appreciate the aux input in the center console. Love the drive.
Audio stinks. The stock audio on my old accord was better I feel. The audio just feels thin and if you have it on radio you really hear the static. I feel the power port in front of the shifter is useless because when something is plugged into it, it is bothersome.
