Makes commuting almost fun

My commute in the D.C. area would be depressing if it wasn't for this car. Instead, I smile and look forward to driving every morning and evening. Bought an expensive snow tire/wheel set to commute and drove through light snow with no problems. The hardtop is great in the winter and enhances the rear view. There is much written about not taking this car on long trips, but we much prefer this car over our other more comfortable cars because it is so much more fun! We took long trips to Canada, Connecticut, and Georgia. We are in our late 50s but may not be entirely average as we are used to touring on motorcycles. As my wife said, this is so much more comfortable.
Razor sharp steering, flat cornering, crisp shifting. Clark Kent turning into Superman when the VTEC kicks in. Proletariat image. Would've been too self conscious in a Porsche. Stability control - panned by machos, but BMW driving course convinced us of the value. True sports car with no fat.
MP3 connection for the radio. Honda, please don't stop making this car.
