I have found this to be the case on many forums I lurk on .

    Those few who have driven it, and are not overly enthusiastic (though in many cases still seem to be pleasantly suprised by it) often as not come from a non sporty/high revving Honda owning background.

    I am glad to see that you guys so far have found what I did andtake the new car for what it is, not a compromise, but a car that offers all the fun elements of the outgoing EP, but with the improvements to steering feel, chassis stability that make it more fun. And that the extra toys, far from watering it down make it even easier to live with.

    For me once we have finished the finance on the wifes car (in about a year). It will make the new G ride choice a little more interesting...


    ...second hand NSX, S2000 or FN2.....(I just cannot see me leaving Honda tbh).
    spot on G.

    its even more free revving / more fun [ tbh too much more fun that one tends to drive too worrying fast ] / easy to live with / more toys / better design [ in and out ]...........my wife loves it and is forcing me to buy one !!............but i am undecided still.

    have tested the ford ST back to back with the FN2, and
    will be testing the subaru also.i am leaning towards an oldfashion dash and 4 wheel drive with that lovely flat 4 sound.

    G you have a subaru, what are your thoughts ? are they just as reliable and sensible running costs ?

    I think I will be test driving one of these on my return from Iraq...

    It seems to get some great reviews off people who have test driven one, Though i dont think it could tempt me away from the DC5

    Pics in magazines really don't do it justice until you have a walk around it
    Was really impressed by the interior, will get some pics up later on

    Sorry to say, good drive or bad drive is irrelevant to me. The front looks mean, the interior looks nice, even the side profile looks ok... but this just looks really really ugly (to me) (photo grabbed from JDType-R's site):
