I bought this car to learn manual because I plan on eventually getting a standard Beamer. Drove it off the lot that day after a crash course from the salesman. I don't want to go back to auto, and Honda has me impressed with the car; however, a stock tighter suspension and/or turbo would have made it an epic ride. Come on, Honda.
Also, if I turn it in for another lease, Honda may give me a really good deal on their newest Si since I take care of it and make my payments.
