    Getting about 40 mpg in the city, I'll know more about the highway FE after this weekend.

    These things are awesome. You should be doing 55-62 highway from what I have been seeing. A guy that works here at Honda bought one and gets around that.

    I'm going to tint the back half of it with some help from a coworker (Who has tinted like 100+ cars) in the next couple weeks. I'm thinking probably 25 or 30% on the back windows.

    The plans are going to be months out, maybe a year. I just took a huge pay-cut when I switched jobs in return for infinite job security -- so it'll be a while.

    Love that first pic, and is it just me or does the Navi look too far rightward?

    Nah, it's easily touch-able while strapped into the seat. I can't get to the glovebox without moving however...

    I dunno, I think I got a pretty good deal. 24200 out the door, and I was able to keep my vanity tags. :D

    Just wish I had a car that looked as sharp as your white one does now. :p

    It feels lower to the ground, appears to corner better, and I can feel the weight difference. With two people in it, it feels like the fit with just me. The lower CoG makes a huge difference, there's less body roll, but the car still is undersprung and underdampened for my liking. Maybe at some point I'll get some adjustable coilovers and get it cornerweighted and really setup -- but that's going to be way in the future. Like Q4 2011. I need to learn to drive the hell out of it first before I go upgrading the components.

    The handling characteristics are interesting... It's strange to describe, I personally think that it's not neutral handling, but every review I've read suggests that it is. Maybe my idea of neutral on a FWD car is a really lose rear end? Dunno. I'm thinking some negative camber might make all the difference in the world. And for $30 I can't go wrong.

    It responds well to inputs, and the Traction Control isn't overbearing like my father's fit sport. The tires could be better, but I think I just need to get used to not having 195mm of the stickiest cold-compound street rubber known to man (direzza z1 star spec.) I do have some 205/50r16 direzza z1's for the spring.

    It's a nice car. I'd take one over the fit, and even a civic Si any day. Everyone who looks at it comments on how it's a sportscar.
