LOL Nice ^^^

I've seen some pretty cool things done with the Raspberrys. The Sport edition doesn't have a touchscreen, so doesn't have actual "HondaLink", but it does have some of the features like the Pandora integration and such. They said there's the ability to add some more of the app integrations later, but as of right now no. There's no way to add a touchscreen to the Sport editions, even for navigation (not possible to add Navi). That was kind of a downside to the car, but it's really not bad...Honda charges $2000 for their navigation system, so I was fine not going that route.

Plus the Sport has more power, better exhaust (and good-looking dual exhaust), and a different suspension. It's also pretty much the only way to get a manual transmission, since I hate the way the CVT sounds/acts.
