i got a pic of one in the showroom, but for 90 grand?? yeah, it's the most liveable supercar, it's as easy driving as a civic, but for 90 grand for a honda? i don't know about that. i saw a 996 targa drive by, and i was wondering if i'd rather have the 996 than the acura. yeah, i'm positive i would. that thing was hot, and the glass roof was : :

it performs on par with the M3 and Carrera though. it has 290hp. and there are rumors of a hybrid NSX coming.....

yeah but the NSX is like double in price compared to the M3. Is the NSX lightweight? is that why it performs great?

drive the car...its awesome - then judge. I still dont think its worth $90k but its a great car. Just because its Honda doesnt mean it drives like a Civic guys. ITs like saying that the Audi RS6 drives like a VW jetta.

you gotta admit, the styling is very attractive. i like it a lot. i was suprised how narrow the tires were though. up front they were 215, in the rear they were 255. that's pretty small for a car this caliber. and they're 17 inches. i assumed they would be 18's

there must be a reason for those size tires, maybe it's the optimal performace since the car is aluminum or something.

optimum rim size is really dependant on the width and wheelbase of a car, plus the suspension geometry. I'm sure that 17" is plenty for an NSX. hell, 16" is optimal on my miata.
