that jerkiness is actually one of the features of the tsx...called Drive by Wire. the electronic throttle control...you'll figure out how to drive it smoothly.

and going to change your oil in "a couple of months" ?

Yeah, Ive been day dreamin of the Viper Alarm/ Auto Start Combo... Very nice... and I thought he was Refering to an amp not oil before...

but anyway I changed the Oil at 2,000 Miles... Right over to Mobil 1 Synthetic, Recently Regular Oils been catching up, some argue its as good as Synthetic, Guess Im still a ploy to slick marketing, but I Trust Mobil 1... and wanted to get Synthetic Oil into the TSX Asap

Actually, I've always found the TSX's throttle to be silky smooth and very linear. The Audi A4, now that drove like it had a kink in the linkage.

8k is like the factory recommended time to change. I am changing mine soon, since I jus past my break in period, 2k......

Leaving them in doesnt mean it's better, becasue the collected metal dust from the engine need to come out, i don't think it will affect the engine TAT much, but I don't want those things floating through my engine.

I lot of folks with EP3 (K20A3) engines experienced oil consumption if they replaced the break in oil too early (before 5k)...myself included. I changed it around 2,400 on my EP3, so I waited to around 5k with my TSX (K24A2). From my experience it's better to wait with K-series engines.

No, oil comsumption...as in using/burning oil; something that usually doesn't happen till you have high mileage on your car.
