God damn it's been a while since I've driven a car and the last car I did have was my 2002 RSX.

For the folks who had an RSX, what did you progress to over the years?

I loved both E46 M3s. Great driving cars.

I really liked the E92 M3, but it lacked torque. Even with the VF650 kit on it. It screamed, but was gutless.
First time I test drove a stock E92 M3, I thought something was wrong with it. I asked the salesman if I could take it to redline and about 4800RPM is where it woke up.
I like torque down low and not having to redline it to get all the fun out of it all the time.
Had to downshift to pass cars basically.
The exhaust note though. OMG that was one of the best sounding exhausts.

well dude, I always loved Vettes........& if I was going to get one, it was going to be one of the really bad ass ones.


I really liked my Cobra, it was a super fun car to drive, but it was also very, very impractical.

I LOOOOOOOOVE my Vette. Ridiculous amounts of power, disgusting torque down low (& all the way through) & incredibly comfortable (compared to the Cobra)

Is the new NSX a dumb buy? I always wanted the old one and the new one looks so pretty.

If you have $150,000 to blow it's probably a great buy. They did a brief review of it on The Grand Tour, Jeremy Clarkson I believe was the one who drove it and he said it's on par with the supercars that cost upwards of $1 million (Porsche 918, La Ferrari, etc.)

I still drive my 2002 RSX. Still under 100k miles.
My other car is a 92 XJ with 160k miles.

They both have their uses. No plans to get rid of either. I haven't had a regular commute since 2008, so not putting on that many miles.

I've had about a dozen other cars ... 3 that I bought new.

Back in 2004 I made the decision to do more mods on the RSX rather than buy an old NSX. Can only drive one at a time anyway, and the NSX would have been so much more expensive to work on.


So why no driving for 8 years? Waiting for that self-driving car?

Manhattan ruins people who like to drive.

RSX to Jeep Grand Cherokee to Mazda 3 to Chevy Trailblazer. No more sporty cars as DDs for me, too small. Got a kid and another on the way.

Saw that episode. I love the NSX. If you have the money then it's worth it.
But realistically I probably wouldn't spend that much on a car anyways, unless I am making that much money in a month...

nah man, I got a 2009 Nissan Frontier with 126,000 miles on it now.

Will probably drive that thing till the wheels fall off, but I really like the new Silverado's.

Although I honestly can't see myself ever paying $40K+ for a fucking truck!
