I have been telling myself that if I stumbled in to a carbon grey 6-speed, that I would actually go talk to a salesperson. Long story short, my 2000 Accord EX/V6 is now on the used car lot and this is in my garage. (Man, I missed shifting gears!)

600 miles to 1,000 miles, depending on who you ask.

I babied the car until 1,000, some started red-lining after 600.

Right when my tripometer hit 600 miles, the gas pedal well..... was f'n floored to the damn floor. It hasn't broke down yet so i guess it was fine. It's a honda engine, its under warranty, and its reliabilty is up there so you don't need to worry about.

Had to drive to work in the rain this morning. Not happy. I'm such a wuss! But out of the 9 V8 Mustangs and 4 Honda's I've owned, this is my first brand new car.

It's just a car...It's just a car...It's just a car...It's just a car...It's just a car...It's just a car...It's just a car...It's just a car...It's just a car...

Hey sky, LOVE that TSX. That color is awesome...and it's a 6spd. So cool. I traded my 98 Cobra w/ 47k miles for my TSX 6spd and I also love my new TSX. Am I correct that your pic is of a Bullitt Mustang tearin' up the triple digits? :ben:

I believe that picture came from an '03 MACH 1. Probably better that I didn't get another Mustang. I got a ticket last year for going 105 in a 65 in the Accord. Can't imagine what would happen with the new 300hp GT.

I'm very happy I chose the TSX. Got the splash guards installed Friday and the M3 type lip spoiler is in the mail. Window tint is scheduled for sometime next week.

Got the windows tinted, the splash guards are on and the spoiler is at the bodyshop. If the rain ever quits, I'll get some new pix and post em.

BTW...anyone know the percentages of auto trannys vs. 6-speeds that have been produced?

Some lip spioler pix

Here it is 1500 miles later, here it is. With new tint, splash guards and the lip spoiler. The more I drive the car, the more I know I bought the right one. If I'd have bought the 05 Mustang, I would be paying $2.30 a gallon for a 15mpg car instead of $2.45 a gallon for a 27mpg car.

Here are the new pix.
:D

Wasnt sure if that was a Mach or a Bullitt, but the Aluminum didnt look very bullitt like

Congrats on the buy... Beautiful Car, Enjoy it
