I've been shopping for a bit. Thought I wanted a WRX (I'm a Subaru guy) but Consumer Reports hates on the reliability for that car. I didn't like the Honda, the features were nice, but the red lights and all electronic dash I loathed. I also thought the fit and finish seemed a little lacking. I feel in love with the N the moment I sat in it. I love the quirky 3rd door. The test drive made my heart skip a beat, something the others didn't quite do (type R had great performance but too pricey in my book and I have too much grey in my beard to have that kind of spoiler). Made the deal and left my deposit last night. Today I'll pick it up. Can't wait. I opted for the blue in base model.
