I think all the RSX needs is to be droped an inch or two and 17" wheels. I'd definitely wait for the Type-R. The interiors are nice in those cars. I've got to say though, as much as I don't like JDM front ends, jdmdc2integra, yours is definitely and arguement to the contrary. Nice car.

Here are a couple of pics of a great looking Type-R that change my mind everytime I go thinking the G3 looks better.





A shop around my parts has a near exact copy of this car, with the exception that it's a Type-S

but what everyone has to keep in mind is, maybe the rsx type r would be a model option, it won't be a true type r, They'll rob 20 horse power from it for the US version.

RSX= Like Em
Gen 3= Love Em
Gen 2= Love Em More

I like that one. I was wondering what the holes on either side of the bumper do. The one in the center is for the rad but what do the other ones lead to?

Here's another clean DC5

Why do you say that? Why did you come to that conclusion? The USDM version of the G3 TypeR was only 2hp behind the JDM version.

It's just my opinion but I don't think the North American market would buy a 200hp Type-R. Pretty much everyone on here and everywhere else is in agreement that a model option Type-R would suck a$$.

THeres a couple articles stating this, that comment comes from Japan itself and the US automakers, I believe there was an article in the Nov issue of Sport Compact. Theres also another thread arguing this point and i believe there were many people that also read the same.

If you want the new Tegs, I would suggest waiting for the Type R model once it is released for the US.

Other then that, I would stick with a 3G GSR or Type R.

What model do you have right now anyways? and don't be all down over the milage being 100k. If you take good care, Hondas can run up to 200k + fine~

The new RSX are just not that run and fast feeling compared to the 3G still, from personally experience so only IMO.

Or you may just get another car like a old 240sx and build a sr20 or something.

Whatever you do, good luck and do a lot of research since you sound like you are fumbling.

Yeah...I've decided to keep it....there's just too much $$$$ in it to sell it anyway!!! I think eventually I might start over...like new exhaust, intake, cams..ect.
Besides if I decided to get a wrx or something I couldn't leave the wonderful people of TI!!!! Thanks for all the support and suggestions...this site really is a family!!!
