I like the gutsy 4-cylinder/6-speed combo, and I think it looks pretty aggressive. I'd definitely own one in a blink of an eye. It's cool.

Agreed, but it's more $$$ due to the engine and size. The TSX, I believe, is great for its interior, engine and suspension. Too bad it's CAN$38.4k sad.gif ... I guess it's priced competatively, but it's just out of my reach. tongue.gif

The interior is even better in person, the handling is fantastic, the car oozes quality, and the six-speed manual is second to none. Frozen.

Are you getting "good" confused with "cool" again?

No, I just don't subscribe to the philosophy that faults inherently make a car cool, and that the lack of faults inherently make a car uncool. The interior is cool--I love how it feels, the color choice of the gaugues, the shapes, the textures, et cetera. I love how it handles. It wouldn't be cool if it felt like a pig IMO. I love the engine noise under hard acceleration, et cetera. The car looks awesome and feels awesome to drive. That's cool.

No, not really. Yes, some of the things I like about the TSX are somewhat objective--such as the awesomely smooth shifter, the high-quality interior materials, or the precise handling. However, I'm going to list five things that I said in my past two posts. Read them again. Do you insist that these are all objective?

1. "the car oozes quality" (not at all the same as "statistically, the car has a low rate of unscheduled maintenances").

2. "I love how [the interior] feels, the color choice of the gaugues, the shapes, the textures, et cetera"

3. "I love the engine noise under hard acceleration"

4. "The car looks awesome"

5. "[The car] feels awesome to drive"

Yes, really. Your exceedingly calculated analysis of every car pervades what you consider to be cool. If only dumpy FWD sedans are cool because they're well built, is a car like the Lambo Miura cool? Objectively, it was horrible, hastily designed, poorly constructed and had a propensity to randomly catch fire, yet most people would say it's Frozen.

I don't give a s--- about supercars either way, so no, I'm not going to vote-on-demand for you.

However, I gave the Mustang GT a frozen--same with the Buick Grand National GNX--and neither are "dumpy FWD sedans." So you're as wrong on that point as you are when you said that I based this decision off of ONLY objective stuff. You know, objective stuff like looks, sound, and feel... rolleyes.gif

And I never ever said that ONLY well-built cars are cool. I said that I don't agree that well-built cars are inherently uncool because they're well-built. Or that flaws make a car cool (a cool car can be flawed, but flaws don't make a car cool). That's a very different thing than saying that a car MUST be well-engineered to be cool.

And out of all the members of DS to go after for their contributions on the Cool Wall, why are my decisions the ones you decide to scrutinize? Look elsewhere on the cool wall and you see such stunning insights as these (note that these are the entire responses, not exerpts) :
