The NSX has been an awesome car for over 10 years with not too many changes made by Honda over the years. Have you seen the New Honda NSX-R? Its very beautiful and fast. Here's some pics to make you drool too :wink:

I think you are right. I heard from a Ferrari owner once that Ferrari's need to be fine tuned very often. Ferrari for weekend driving and an NSX for a daily driver, now that would be the life. Japanse and Italian cars are some of the highest quality cars out there though. If treated with T.L.C., both will be very reliable.

I've seen the Mini a few times on the road. Since its made by BMW now, it should be reliable and have good craftsmanship. Personally, I think its okay. Alittle too small with not enough performance. The USA needs the Civic Type R. I like the previous generations Type R better, but we need one in the states. Bring one over, pretty please :D

Love The Recaro Seats! :D

I've seen a few Mini's on the road too. Unfortunately they were all being driven by old, bald professor types, trying to look hip.

I like small cars, but damn, the Mini is too small. It would be like driving a gokart. I'd hate to be driving one if I was in an accident.. :cry:

Those lucky Brits! I demand Honda bring over the Civic Type R. I have read rumors that Honda might bring over a civic hatchback with the RSX's Type S Engine (200 HP) and call it the Civic SiR. If this is indeed true, Honda sales would go up. But I really want the Integra Type R. :wink:

Damn. Things have sure changed since high school when I had my Corolla GT-S. I do want an NSX, though.

This guy Bob Warfield has some cool toys - cool dude, too.

I'd love to have an Alex Zanardi Edition NSX. Hell, a "regular" NSX would be awesome.

Called in sick and stayed at home today. I haven't watched MTV in years. They got a segment called Cribs. I've come to a crossroads. I'm quitting my job to become a rap artist...gunna buy me some sweet rides. :wink: Heh!

Whaddya say, BuddhaTB? NSX with Red's hydraulics and McLean trophy cruisers?

Damn...I can't believe the cars they can afford on that show. Sheesh.

I totally agree with you F1pilot. MTV Cribs is like the best place to see some hot cars on TV. Rappers have some crazy cars and homes.

99% of All Rap Videos Contain Atleast One of The Following:
1. Hot Cars :D
2. Hot Girls :D

Hell yeah! I'm not sure who the artist was, but it was some "DJwhowhatthat", but not only did he have cherry muscle cars, but he had the new Aston Martin, and was testing out a new Stallion. Of course, there was another guy on there that was going to buy a new Bull.

Here my humble butt is debating getting either a USED 4Runner or Stealth TT. 8)
