This is indeed one of the car's long suits. Not just more power, but the suspension and steering are different, so the handling is great.

cbdallas Really depends on your priorities. The Ti has more 'stuff' and the ride is a bit smoother, and of course there's no tiger under the hood...it's more of a kitty cat.

I got rid of a loaded Ti for an ST1 and I have ZERO regrets...but I prefer more engaging, 'angry' cars to luxo-mobiles. I wouldn't mind re-skinning the seats with that good looking Ti leather, but other than that I'm thrilled with the car. I don't miss the MFT at all, nor the DCT.

RonMaiden Plus the ST has been called the best handling front wheel drive car to date;I haven't heard that comment applied to any FWDer since the last Integra Type Rs,that's good company to be in.

Just the feeling of the thrust, the sound when the boost kicks in, the Handling, the Seats (I'm 6'4" 250lbs and i love them). Its just in another class to me. But i own one and am smitten, so maybe im biased who knows.
You're not wrong . While a lot of things look familiar the driving experience is very different. Steering, brakes engine,... everything is just more "alive".

It's def worth it, any throttle lag is gone it just plain hauls ass now. Send me a PM if you have any questions. I bought mine off ebay, received it the next day and saved about $50 buying direct.

I bought the ST2 which was also thousands cheaper than the CMAX (reasoning to wife), I'm loving the power and 6spd, and now with the Cobb tune even more. I do miss the auto dim mirror, back up sensors, ambient lighting, homelink visor and heated seats the Ti has.

The Seats were def a concern, I'm 6'1 220, they have either loosened up some or I have just got used to them but they are not a deal breaker. I do think they should have made the sides adjustable and the car would appeal to a wider demographic.
