Hail to the "Launch Ramp"...

I originally wanted an RSX, but, after the test drive, it left something to be desired. It wasn't fast enough. I noticed this car across the lot, and I was immediately drawn to it. This car is so fun to drive! I am averaging around 30 mpg mixed, and the cabin is uber quiet. Freeway on-ramps are now known to me and my family as "launch ramps". One of the only things I don't like about it is the spoiler. Who thought that putting the spoiler across the CENTER of the field of vision was a good idea?!
The high-end torque!!! It feels like I'm jumping to warp when the tach reads above 5800. The exterior styling is not something you see everyday.
First and foremost, the TRD spoiler (come on, right across the back window?). Second, the position of the cup holders in the Manual transmission model are too close to the gear lever. You can't shift without knocking your drink over. And you can forget about passengers in the rear seat.
