    I want the RSX-S really bad, but the fwd part really annoys me

    everything else is perfect
    -6 speed
    -amazing interior
    -pretty fast
    -GREAT LOOKs
     
  2. you want an rwd/awd at a price lower than the rsx-s? Get a wrx?

    Hey... paying less than 12k for a car with 400 rwhp isn't exactly a bad deal.

    :squint:

    I get nothing but compliments on this car. I've had 2 people offer to buy it and several short stoplight conversations with people who like it.

    Fuck domestic haters; hell fuck anyone that has blind loyalty to brands imports/domestics or whatever. I tire of that bullshit. :down:

    you think that is pretty fast? Even if you have NO intent on buying one, atleast go test drive an ls-1 f-bod, 03 cobra, or c-5 - they are in your price range, late model used...

    It sounds like the RSX-S is your only choice, homeboy, based on your requests.

    i have an intent on buying one, but i was just wondering if there was anything better

    my dad owns a f250 truck
    and my sister owns a mustang (v6)


    so its not like i hate american cars at all, i know those are faster but RSX-S is pretty fast compaired to other shit (civic/prelude etc.)

    That should spark a little interest toward a very fast car, that looks nice, and is pretty cheap. His car in hot rod magazine not to long ago.

    The mustang owner's story about his choice in the rsx is right on the money. The car is by no means a monster at the drag strip, and there are PLENTY of faster cars at or cheaper than it in its price range. But to a lot of people (like me) it's the perfect blend of practicality and fun.

    Few things you NEED to do to your rsx though: intake/hondata ecu reflash and change of tires. I'd also suggest lowering it a little to get rid of the wheel gap. That's it. Done. No need for a loud ass coffee can in the back.

    Every now and than I look at the times the wrx's are putting down, and see how I compare to them at the local autox's. Yes, they're faster than me, for much cheaper. And yes, come snow time, they can kill me. But I love my rsx the way it is and couldnt pick a better car for me at the moment.
