For the Canadians out there:
Test drove a 5-speed in Absolutely Red last night at Erin Park Lexus. (They had also taken delivery of a Sportcross in GGP the day before but it wasn't yet ready for testing out.) Anyhow, the 5sp also had the Dunlop SP9000's on them. Sweet ride, but I was surprised when I managed to squeal them when I threw it (not really that hard either IMO) into a corner. I've run old Conti Sport Contacts and Pirelli P700Z's in my 8 yr. old Civic and have rarely gotten them to squeal so not really sure what happened. (BTW, TRAC was on).
Planning on 2002 5sp. in MSM in mid-October if all goes well.
