I have now owned this car for 3 weeks and it has been a Joy. Almost everytime I drive it I can't help but smile. I can say with certainty it outhandles anything in its price range. It is so invigorating to drive that it is truely a joy to drive. The car is deceptively fast due to the highly strung engine. Its acceleration can only be described as elastic. It doesn't jerk your head back as a v6 car of the same power would. But its quicker than v6's of the same hp (6.2 seconds to 60). A downshift or two on the highway and your gone. My only real problem with the car is its boy racer (ricer) image. Alot of the time I will pull up to a stop light and every riced out car wants to race me. I enjoy driving my care fast but I don't like being associated with that crowd. But aside from that the car is a dream.
P.S. don't expect that your buying a luxury car just because its an Acura. This is a refined sporty car nothing more. It will give you the thrills of owning a sports car only more refined and easier to live with day to day.
