I am not a car expert. It took me 4 years to decide on my new car and Infiniti G35, BMW 3 series and Honda Accord were the final contestants. I did not look into Honda's much because there are so many of them. I was mostly interested in performance and luxury features as well the as price(of course!). Infiniti G35 and BMW 3 series are nice cars but personally I did not see a 10K difference between those cars and Honda. I testdrove G35 and its performance did not impress me that much. It is very loud! Honda Accord V6 has comparable performance for everyday driving since I am not planning to take the car to track. For 10K less than luxury brands, you get everything on a mid-luxury car-including GPS, moonroof, leather, etc etc. I have driven it for 2 months, do not have a single complaint. The car is very smooth to drive, interior has excellent design(for my taste). Honda electronics are very nice. The GPS voice recognition works nicely even for people with accents(!).
In terms of performance, the car is faster than(according to 0-60mph acceleration times from various web sites) Acura RSX, Mazda RX8, most Ford Mustangs, Toyota Celica, Mitsubishi Eclipse, BMW 3 series, etc etc.
The disadvantages are loud road noise when you go above 90mph(I do not know if there are any cars that do not make any noise when you go that fast!) The fuel economy in the city is 20mpg so if you are looking for a fuel efficient car in the city, you might want to consider the hybrid.
Overall, I strongly suggest to testdrive this car if you are looking for a sports coupe.
