I prefer not to hear a wail from the engine behind me. Sure it sounds nice when you're initially driving it but it will get annoying after a while.

Well that depends who you are, a lot of car guys I know want to always hear it or as much as they can since no matter how long they own the vehicle for it always puts a smile on their face. It's your place to escape.

Are you sure you should be purchasing the NSX then?

Yup. I like what I see so why not? Not going to be making any modifications anyways.

It might just take having to get behind the wheel of one, going for a long drive on roads you'll be likely to go on, then deciding.

Nothing beats that experience.

Doubt the Acura dealership will let me test drive one off the lot with it being a high ticket model.

If you are serious about it and actually have the money to own one, there's no reason why one of them won't.

I think anyone who is serious about buying a supercar would want to drive it before buying it. I don't think that is unreasonable. As long as you are serious they will try to make it happen. Plus the salesman can sell you on the car as you drive it.

Just read another review from motor authority and they said that the wail when you pin the throttle can be heard very well in the cockpit but it is lacking a bit from the outside. Seems like they pipe some of the sound into the cockpit.

Which review is right?
