Have you driven an S2k? They might be a Honda but they're still a pocketful of fun. You do have to work the hell out of the shifter to keep it in it's powerband, but I've also never driven a car with...

Throw in a PBR with lunch and I'll drive it up myself.

I've been loving the weather this week. Only problem is I'm having a hard time staying focused in the office when it's 75* outside.

I'm not 100% sure but I think you can get a print out to tape onto the trunk that shows you the proper spot to put the badge. I have no idea where one would find that print out though. :dunno:

I'd still just call it a hatchback. It's too bad the "3-door" name is already used for 2-door hatchbacks because that'd work perfectly. I never got the 3-door/5-door thing. You don't call a sedan a...

I can't really tell you from personal experience, I've run both sizes but I'm pretty sure all my 235s happened to be all seasons and all my 245s have been summers, so obviously they stick much better.
