ive never sen a black rsx i bet they look niece tho i'd fo with that, black carz own in my opinion = )
there's a black one down the street with a full wings west kit... very sharp. I'll get some pics for you. I love it.

only thing most people wont agree on is the aluminum wing it has. but it honestly doesn't look too bad... I just wouldn't have gotten it on such a beautiful car.

knavekid always with the rare colors... doesn't that make your car more valuable? Nice!
Either that or it marks it as being the oldest, like a '94 gen3. I'll have to check out the Redondo Red Pearl and compare it to mine. It looks about the same in the photos.

here's a black RSX Type-S for ya. it is my bud Chris Dye's (founder of clubRSX.com & c2tuning.com), & it ran a 13.1 w/ a 100 shot. & it's COMPLETELY gutted. he also has a white RSX which is more of a show car.

The newer red looks much more deep from what I've seen. I think the difference is pretty noticable.

I just saw the new Redondo Red Pearl color today. I dropped a friend by Courtesy Acura in Longwood to pick up his '88 Integra after some maintenance. I pulled up next to a new 2003 RSX and got out to compare the colors.

The Redondo Red Pearl is just a little bit darker and has less magenta in it. Unless you see them side by side, it would be hard to tell the difference.

Everybody gave me crap about getting a Firepepper Red Type S. they all asked why not the black or the blue or the silver.

For the longest time, I wanted the Arctic Blue Pearl Type-S, but every time I saw one on the road, the color didn't impress me or stand out in any way. Then one day I saw a Firepepper Red Pearl RSX on the road and it looked so sweet. The color really stood out and looked great. At that point, I started going back and forth on which color to get. I didn't really decide until I was at the dealer, ready to buy. I decided that the titanium colored interior really looked more luxurious and rich, compared to the black, and I decided to buy my first car that wasn't blue since an old beater that I drove in the late '70s. I do not regret my decision. And now I have a color just as rare as my SSBP GS-R was, based on two FRP RSX models for one year and one SSBP Integra model for two years.
