I picked up my Odyssey Blue 2001 mk1 172 yesterday and all I can say is "WOW".
At first, I had to get used to the sport clutch but Im now used to it and have been having a blast.
Only real challenge I had was a 3-up 528i but then again it wasnt even a challenge
p.s. I now know what all the 5k rpm fuss is all about.
