nah, I'm leasing the TSX for 2 years (...maybe should have bought it)...saving up for a M3 sedan when my lease is up.

TSX is a great car BTW (got a black one) Only beef I have is the VTEC crossover at 6k when redline is 7k. WTF?? And when you shift at 7k you end up at 5k and off the VTEC. :shrug: Nice power, nice engine sounds (especially VTEC), quick handler, glad I got a manual. Nice shifting action, not rubbery at all. :up: Tight brakes. Only wish it was RWD.

:evil:

what are your overall impressions of this car? Have you been able to drive a W202 C230K? What were the differences? I myself own a 2000 C280 Sport (W202) and love it to death although it can get kind of cumbersome at times. I found that when I first got the car excessive body roll, excessive squat under acceleration, and a bias towards understeer plagued the car. This was all corrected with much more aggressive shocks and springs that lowered the car 2 in. How was the steering feel of your W203?

I loved my car as well. I really like how it's setup. Steering feel was not bad - it's got a nice weight to it, not much roll or squatting really. I drove the car home from work using backroads which included a canyon section and I really liked how it performed there. Only thing I didn't like were the front seats...could have used more support...which they added from 2005 onwards. I actually drove next to a red C63 on 101 west for several miles...nice car, but can't get past the current design.
