I find myself driving this car far more than I need to, simply because it's such a blast to drive! The razor-sharp reflexes, the confident, solid shift action, the punch of VTEC when you crack past 6 grand (not to mention the banshee scream that comes with that)- need I say more? There is a surprising amount of leg room (more than my Accord), and the well-bolstered seats really keep you planted during spirited driving. While the storage space leaves a bit to desire, after a couple weeks I didn't find it to be an issue anymore.
Fantastic handling. Responsive throttle input- almost feels like revving a motorcycle! Excellent braking capability. The no-frills, driver-oriented cockpit - once inside, there's no doubt about its intentions. Fast-opening and closing electric top - very fast, in fact.
A touch more low-end grunt for punching out of those apexes - and for less dramatic getaways at the stoplights.
