    As many of you know, I lemon lawed the Z. So me and the wifey went out saturday to look for our future car. We ended up having to drive 2.5 hours into Fayetville Arkansas to pick her up though, in our 13 mpg Jeep.


    Here she is getting warmed up for the trip out...

    Stopped by the Bell to grab some burritoes.

    And then I realized that I forgot the extra batteries for the trip.... So I had to wait to take the rest of the pics when I got home.:rofl:

    We paid 300 above invoice :bowdown: which equates to $21,999 ( they paid sales tax too :coolugh: )

    OK, a little bit of a step back to go from a V6 to a NA 4 cylinder, but if that's what makes you happy.:hs:

    What is sad is that this car is almost nipping at the Z's tails in straight line acceleration.


    It's just in the curveys the Z would decimate the RSX..

    so what was the deciding factor on you getting that honda??

    you went from a 3.5liter 6cylinder to a... what? 2.0L 4cylinder?
    But most importantly....from RWD to FWD????

    why not consider...the RX-8?

    6.2 0-60 vs 5.4 0-60 = very respectable fo a n/a 2.0 I4 vs 3.5 v6

    The whole Idea behind this car is the fact that we are going to pay this off in 2 years.
