    I assume your NSX is the slower gold one then??

    I presume you've only recently purchased it and if so how are you enjoying ownership of it now??

    Yep, mine is the rubbish NA2 one .
    I've had it since September and really like it - particularly the gear change and the way the engine delivers its power. I had a 997 and Ferrari f430 before and I prefer the NSX - much more usable and engaging even if ultimately a little slower in a straight line. I prefer older more mechanical cars.
    I don't commute but I'm using it as my daily car. It was very dirty until just before the run. Roof over even when its cold.

    There is absolutely no such thing as a "rubbish" NSX in my opinion Jemt1234, everyone one of them is a mobile treasure piece. 👍

    Your car certainly cleans up well and it's great to hear that you're using it as an everyday driver. That would definitely be my idea of everyday driving heaven.

    Just in case you didn't realise there is an in forum joke that the fastest NSX's ever made were always the red/black combo. Several biased debates have been had but even our in house ultimate forum Guru, Kaz has said as much. 😎

    Also I nteresting to see that you prefer the engagement in the way it drives over your previous 997 and F430 (that's what I find you fall in love with most) but had your NA2 also been in red you would have found it faster too. 😂

    Hopefully we'll see at one of the occasional meets we have throughout the year.

    Anyway, enjoy.

    Really interesting -T/colour combination.

    IKWYM - the NSX feels 'alive' even at boring traffic speeds, whereas many cars only feel special if you're going very fast, which traffic conditions and the Blue Meanies prevent.

    I find myself irresistibly attracted to cars that nobody else buys. The NSX is a classic of the genre because nobody buys it and yet its a fantastic car. Its got a wonderful compactness and simplicity and unpretentiousness to it. Honda rudely continues to make them whether we like it or not, even though there can be no commercial logic in doing so I thoroughly admire that. Rowan Atkinson
