Hey Dude!  Hope you don't mind me posting this back to the list. (for 
the rest of ya' - Jaret & I had identical RSX-S(es) down to the color.) 
  But... the seats (tho nice) were made for fat Americans, and not as 
grippy or bolstered or narrow or firm as the SE-R.  The steering had 
better feedback, but I didn't like the shifter as much.  It probably had 
higher grip than my B13s, but more understeer, and while it was a blast 
to rip on, esp when the VTEC kicked in, it was annoyingly torqueless in 
stop & go traffic, and my modded SE-R would run an even or marginally 
quicker drag race with it (have time slips on both.)  I always envied 
the seemingly dirt cheap bolt-ons the Honda guys had available, compared 
to the Nissan world. But when I got the thing there was major sticker 
shock!  $1200 for an ECU flash?!  $900 for cams?!  Yeow!  They're 10 
year old cars now, so maybe it's gotten better.

Not driving anything fun now a days, so....
