    I think you've tried this before!

    The engine is one of the few things my car has going for it. Well that and it's comfortable.

    Makes me forget how boring it is on the outside <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
  2. Staying on topic, I like Toyota over Honda... but only slightly.

    Straying off topic, I think both companies have stopped aggressively trying to put out a strong sports car line-up. I think it has to do more with costs than anything. They both have an extensive line of engines which may hamper in their manufacturing costs. Nissan has done a good job building around their V6 line.
  3. Both have cars that sick out for me.
    Honda: Civic SiR Eg, Civic R Ek, Integra DC2 R, NSX, S2000
    Toyota: AE86, Supra Mark IV, first and second generation MR2s, Ijz Soarer, Chaser, etc.
    Overall, I would choose toyota.
  4. the only good/decent toyota was the supra, honda gets my vote
  5. LFA and NSX?
  6. Ya its got yamaha written on the engine of my tezza. Solid engine pitty thats its kinda boring to drive and doesnt rev out as much as i thought, mind you auto doesnt help. Vtec > vvti
  7. Did the Altezza get a different motor than the IS300?I don't really keep up on Toyotas but i thought the IS300 was a NA 2JZ-GTE?
  8. this may have been said already because I didn't read the thread but Scion = Daihatsu anyway
  9. Oh and I used to work for Honda and being familiar with the brand at that level made me appreciate Honda in a profound way.
    Toyota are just more...boring. I used to tell people that were shopping both brands, like comparing the Civic and Corolla, that if you enjoy driving, Honda is for you. If it's just about getting from A-->B with a cushy, floaty ride, Toyota is perfect.

    edit: I'm a huge Supra and 2nd gen MR2 fan (love the mid-engine layout and handles like a beast).
  10. not VVTi - VVTLI ftw <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  11. Correct. The Altezza RS200 has a Beams 3SGE while the IS300 has the n/a 2JZ.
  12. Toyota owns ~5% of Yamaha
  13. Honda. Although the maintenance (sp?) costs are getting heavy
  14. Lexus ES VS a Acura TL? No contest the TL is more refined and has a classy interior where the ES looks like it came from a Wal mart catalog.
  15. To bad they both suck now.
  16. HONDA!!! Smaller self owned company making better cars. More focused
