As a former GSR owner, was psyched for the RSX Type S, and it's a sweet car, almost perfect - great interior, seating position, weighty responsive steering, heavy solid brakes, nice shifter, and handles great. BUT, I can't get into FWD cars anymore - you power out of a turn and have to fight the wheel, that sucks.
Car doesn't understeer too much at the limit, but it's kind of weird, like the car can't decide if it wants to hang the tail out or push.
The IS300 or a BMW sounds better too, in fact even the old GSR or Type R sounded better, more racy.
Best front driver ever built, IMO. WRX handles a better, thanks to AWD, but for normal driving and quality, the RSX is better.
