seems to be deader than Elvis.
Since I bought a TSX a few weeks ago, after carefully planning my 3-series ED trip for the past several years, I found this comparo only today and took interesting information from it.
Does anyone still look at the TSX vs. the 328? Perhaps all the 3-series people are going to the 335. I doubt it though, given the value-seekers (that'd be me) or the badge seekers (definitely not me) who want in for the minimum possible outlay.
Either way, my TSX (with all of 503 miles on it so far) has been a very pleasant experience, and I've had excellent luck with Asian vehicles over my 43-year driving career. The '09 TSX has gotten decidedly mixed reviews, so overall I'm pleased to have the one I've got. I'm very much looking forward to a 2000-mile or so road trip to and through the mother lode country in CA in the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to a positive bonding experience.
Pat, is it time to update the name of this thread? Or (as is always possible), am I just too thick to have found an existing 328 vs TSX topic?

Elvis Costello is not dead! He's married to Diana Krall, isn't he?

Krull? Wasn't that a bad B-movie horror flick?
And, really. What is so funny about peace, love and understanding?

Krull wasn't a bad movie. And I think Elvis had a cameo in it...

I drove an 08 TSX today. It seemed to have a funny hitch in the transmission, it was hard to go smoothly from a stop. It had about 4k miles on the clock and appeared to be meticulously maintained so I surmised this was a "feature" not a bug.
Does the TSX have the infamous drive by wire that upsets many in some vehicles? It was truly weird.

Automatic or manual?
I noticed that the clutch/fuel feed felt enough different on my TSX (that I've had all of 3 weeks) that I'm still getting used to it, but haven't killed it yet. I've driven lots of different manuals & it always takes awhile to learn where the clutch takes up & how the throttle responds. So far, I'd say the TSX isn't too different from most & better than the Lincoln LS it's replacing.
I'm through the break-in period & am getting on it more now. Seems smoother all the time.

Automatic, sorry, that would indeed be a relevant factoid.
I never could figure out how to adjust the side mirrors. There was a left/right stalk thing on the driver's door, but I couldn't make anything (except my fingers) change the mirror. I did not put a whole lot of effort in it, though.
It was a nice little car.
