It's alright. It's a nice car but after thinking about it, I wouldn't trade up to one. I don't think the car is drastically different from the auto at all. Not in speed, handling or anything. I like the new tails and mirrors but I hate the rims and the new body-colored parts so styling neither a plus nor minus for me. The shifter and clutch are great, just like they are in all Honda products. The gear ratios are good and the car is definitely a little more powerful. I would dearly miss my springs/sways however. The LSD is nice but it still can't make up for what springs/sways do for the car. Plus, I've been in a 4-door mood for awhile anyways. I'd rather have a 6spd TL-S but even if (when) that becomes available I still don't know if it will get me to trade up.

Hello Acura... if you're listening, I'll take a 2004 or 2005 3.5TL Type S with 295hp, 250 lb-ft and a 6spd manual. I KNOW you can do it. So just do it. Thanks :D

I agree that its isn't that different. Its just a different driving experience. A 6 speed TL would be nice but I doubt it will happen. I don't think even the Legend sedan was available with a stick.

I agree with you.

I test drove one today, and it was nice, but it isn't worth me trading up for.

I will pay mine off and leave it be and get another new car to go along with it in a couple of years, probably a sedan of some type.
