Every once and I while I get so pissed off I have to respond to a post like this one...
Everyone enjoy their M's on the track, or an Autocross....the car shines there....
: : I'm not much of a Hype...err Type R fan and it just amazes me that R owners think their cars are on par or superior to the M.

: I read through some of those posts, from the so-called "used to be an M owner, now an R owner thread". Someone suggested that the ITR appeals more to the younger types, and the M to the older types. I agree with that. After all, the ITR is way less expensive... a new one costs about the same as a stock 95 M3 with 50K miles.
: I drove two ITR's before picking an M. My impression was that the ITR is a shoddy tin can, with excessive road and engine noise, loose handling, and boring Honda interior styling.
: The salesman made a big deal about the brushed aluminum shift knob... I guess that made it go faster or something, (just like one would on an M3).
: Sure, Honda's a good, reliable, affordable brand... so what?
