Bought my red 5 speed in June 2005 with 129,000 miles on the clock. I now have 150,000 and I just love this car. I like the punch, the great corner- carving ability and the looks. Each time I walk past the car I just have to smile. I know the 4WS makes the car heavier and therefore slower than the VTEC, but the handling is so great it is worth it. I soon intend to use it as a track day car (while continuing the "daily driver" duties.)
The styling, the solid feel of the entire car, the Si engine (that can run well on 87 octane when the gas gougers raise the prices). The trunk is capable for a true sports car. Even the back seat is OK for some storage as I bought the car knowing no human over 6 months old could fit in it.
It needs at least 1 cup holder and a bigger glove box. I'd also like to see more after-market options.
