It is amazing how all us oldtimers from G-S have flocked here, and there are literally none of the G-S veterans still over there.

Interesting -- I never realized that it was that low.

Aside from the sheetmetal and overall design, it has a partial undertray and other aero items: spats, etc.

When comparing it to the Integra (0.33 Cd), it seems to hold highway speeds with less throttle input, come to think of it. I just thought it was the throttle-by-wire being more efficient about it.

Too bad it has a huge 4 in it. BUT, better than the trend of having a 6-cylinder in this segment. They certainly had better not do that with the '09.

Well, you responded to that point and made me nervous, so I went out to double check my memory... and I wasn't making things up!
