Default my personal feelings towards the RSX

well, i was out all day junk yardin with my buddies in Charleston today. UNfortunatly i came up dry but i figured i would. Got a lot of Neon parts and a part for my buddys 300Z but other then that nothing. We were at this point pretty nasty ad dirty but since Charleston is long drive from Myrtle Beach I just had to stop and check out the new RSX. Well, my first impression is that it sat up too high. I am not usually one for lowering cars but i feel it would add to the looks of this one. Seats, real nice. Appears that they would be....even though leather...ggrrrrrr would be very supportive and not have you sliding all over the place. Didnt really want to take it for a drive cause we were tired and sweaty but i was impressed. Like the wheel set up for sure. The salesman was really impressive, which in my experence is uncommon. He was telling me after talking awhile how they arnt adding any features until the buyer wants them....stuff like spoiler, sunroof shade. Says they are making a killing with the spoiler cause everyone is wanting them. Well, once i get a chance to drive i probably wont be disapointed but im in no rush right now. Still loving my 95 with 110K on it

i drove one, it's i-vtec is much more potent than the vtec that i should have gotten back in the day....

the 6 speed is VERY functional, not just 5 speed plus overdrive.

in my opinion, it definatly needs a 1.5 - 2" lowering, but i still don't know if i can get used to the body. my first impression was Toyota Echo. Not a good 1st impression.

Overall, nice car though

I was really impressed w/ it. I hated it in all the pics but seeing it in person changed my mind. I am going to sell my Prelude and buy one.
