but maps don't direct you to the nearest chinese restaurant - you also missed out on the trip computer, calculator, and calendar

I added picture attachments to the first post...I can't seem to upload stuff to my website right now. Grrr!

Any ways, last night was the best car buying experience I have ever had and got an excellent deal ($27k)...I was in & out in less than 1 hour. However, CarMax screwed me on the value of my EP3 so I had to drive the EP3 back home while my wife drove my new TSX home (80 miles). Doh! It only had 2 miles on it when we drove away...I enjoyed viewing my car as I followed and chatted with Joker on the phone during the semi-long drive back home. :)

So, I finally got to drive it today and LOVE it! The sound system ROCKS for a stock system! I'm sure more positive comments are to come...stay tuned. :D

Smooth. Nice. Welcome to the world of rear wheel drive. You are going to love it!

Don't let go of the civic yet! Lighten it up and dominate the Autocross.

Reguards, lynxster and the Dixie Duster

The TSX is front wheel drive ;)
LOL, yeah Lynxster there is only 1 Honda with rear wheel drive i.e. the S2000. Lynxster is an old college friend with a WRX. :)

In that case we forgive him.
Maybe. :D

Welcome, Lynx!

P.S. How about telling us about the WRX? Unfortunately we don't hear too much about it on here.

You-all are so sweet -- I have to get some tissues . . .

Stats:
- Front dropped 1.5 inch (Prodrive)
- Front camber -1.4 degree (max allowable in stock)
- Stainless-Steel cat back cannon style sport silencer (STI branded)
- Estimated HP = 257 @ 6000 RPM
- Oversized Cusco (Japan) rear sway-bar
- 5MT with short-throw
- Turbo meter
- Compass mirror
- 6 CD in dash changer
- Alarm

Notes:
- Over-steer took a back-seat after the sway-bar.
- Body dings keep adding up. Thanks SUV cunts.
- The HP estimate (257 @ 6000 RPM) is due to the sport silencer alone. Really. I put it on an removed it a couple of times and there is a difference. 30 HP dropped my jaw but that is what all the literature states. If you have not yet discovered turbo, any turbo, I suggest that you visit a dealer and try one out.
- Just measured the camber with a carpenter's angle and a level. Rise over run.

How about that Lemons 24 last weekend. Outstanding. I watched so much of it on speed-channel. GTS class: Corvette 1, 2, Ferrari 3.

Re:
I looked at the TSX web site and did not see the engine-drive type listed. Why is that? That is a basic spec. I am finding that if it is not listed, then it must be FF. I was just playing with that FR.
