LX with a SWEET 6 Speed!
History
I wanted a Sport with a manual for some time. You cannot find them used around here. Not at all. After a year of crawling the lots we found a lowly LX with the 6 speed. We *love* this car! It was under eight months old (since initially purchased, that is) and it was repo-ed for whatever reason. It had a few blemishes in the paint on the rear bumper cover because the moron at the dealership used too high a setting on his heat gun when popping the dents in the cover out. Other than that and one divot in the hood paint it was like a new car. It had only 6,000 miles on the odometer, so it was still a new car, to my way of thinking, minus that huge depreciation monkey waiting to mock you when you roll off the lot that first time.

The car is wonderful. It is much better than our 2010 except that the front end needed aligning shortly after purchase and now needs it again a year later. (Could be our crappy streets or something may not have been properly torqued by the horrible shop creatures at the dealership. We have an excellent Honda dealer in our area, but the trip out to them for stuff like this is a three hour roundtrip drive. No, thanks. I do all my own work now, anyway.)

The highlight of this gem of a car has been the manual gearbox. Outstanding! I drive this car like I stole it pretty much every day, even after a year of ownership.

Wheel and Tire
Pirelli Centurato P7 All Season Plus tires. Slightly different size. MPG is showing a loss of 2 or 3 with the new size. I need to see if I can somehow recalibrate it to account for the difference in OD. The MPH is still accurate, perhaps off by 1 MPH.

The alloy rims that came on it were not the ones in the ad on AutoTrader.com. I was pissed about this, but they had already sold the ones in the photo. I got them to knock off some for that, and I will be buying rims at a later date.
