The car arrived Friday night, a day EARLIER than expected (after I switched transport companies, of course). The driver took great care with the vehicle and made it from Denver in about 29 hours. The car got a lot of attention on his transport as he traveled cross country; in fact, strangers were stopping by as he unloaded the car in front of my house.
Still getting my feel for the car; wow the handling is superb! Brian, I have not made any visits to VTEC land yet.
A few observations:
- Has anyone noticed that these cars are really low? My wife had her first ride today; she's pretty slender and athletic, but that first exit was a surprise!
- At some point I'll have to learn more about the audio electronics. I am fine with the Bose stereo, but it would be nice to hear music sourced from my iPhone 3 for long trips.
- I hear more engine noise than expected. Could be the style of carbon fibre cover that's on the car.... not to mention that we're practicially sitting on the engine.
- Still not sure if I like these Pro Drive wheels. Then of course, some guy in an Audi stopped and asked me about the wheels because he thought they looked great. I guess it's an eye of the beholder item. I'm more of a mesh-style, silver-finish fan. But they may grow on me..
The sun came out for a few seconds late this afternoon, so I pulled out the tablet and grabbed a few pics. Lousy weekend, given the rain, Tigers, Lions, and Wolverines, so the NSX brightened things up quite a bit!
