Most of the time when those arguments pop up, it's because of insecurity. Car choice is a matter of personal preference. There are some people who always seem to have the mentality of "Mine is better than yours" and "If it costs more, it's gotta be better". For others, a car is an extension of themselves. How they tune it, or customize it or even rice it out reflects on their personalities. Luxury isn't what Dodge was going for when they designed the SRT 4. Although I'm sure it will be comfortable to drive, they didn't over do it. I for one don't really need leather seats or climate control to appreciate my car. I will take speed over a sun roof or stock subwoofer anyday. If I wanted luxury, I woud spend more money on a luxury car. I'm sure it's easy for owners who spent alot on their cars to dismiss the SRT 4 as a cheap Neon that only girls drive. Here's a good analogy. It's like on the court, someone is better than you in every area. They can rebound, they can dunk, they have a great outside shot and they dribble circles around you. You respond with "Well, you're poor and those are last year's nike's." "I mean, sure you're better at the game, but I have more money than you and better clothes." Sure the SRT 4 is faster, but the Acura is more expensive, and we have leather seats, a sunroof and climate control. Only time will tell.
