Red face Drove my Wife's TSX to work today

No wonder I'm in a bad mood! Ahahaha! Just playing, no bad mood, but I do feel like I "missed" something today, kinda an empty feeling. My wife is away in socal this weekend and I decided to give my car the day off and drive her car...Boring car, boring drive!

Well your car should be better for $10000+ more.

I hated my TSX! I only had it for a year. Everything about it is incredible except for how it drives.

It's a (non US) Honda Accord. What do you expect.

Didn't expect anything, just sharing some thoughts in off-topic this morning.

I love how the US Accord is faster than the TSX and costs less.

LOL! Fast as the Accord is, it looks like butt! I think the earlier Accords looked better than the new ones sans the Accord Coupe. The TSX looks much much better!! I was thinking that this morning...what if the TSX had the Accord V6?! ...random thoughts, probally too much torque steer.

Yeah I got the TSX for it's looks and then realized later that it was slower than the V6 Accord...that pissed me off.

I test drove the TSX as well.I figured for $10000 less with EVERY option it was worth a look..the Nav was impressive but it drove like a very "light" car, very bumpy like a typical "asian" car....I went straight to BMW to test drive the 330 again to make sure I had a good comparison..needless to say we placed the order that day..my baby is here and I could not be happier..there is noooo comparison...I do not feel guilty for spending $10000 more..the 330 is worth it!
