RSX Suggestions. please help.

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  RSX Suggestions. please help.

i really have 2 questions, my first question is, a few friends of mines own RSX's, we are trying to start a "RSX" crew (please dont laugh). so i figured i would join them, below are a few links to rsx i searched. my 2nd choice was, either get a car which is similar with the rsx or better! just aslong it is around its used price range. i am trying to avoid domestic cars, v6's, mid size or full size, and other cars which is above 20g's. so please feel free to leave suggestions.

now here are the links i searched up of private sellers around my area.

i would appreciate it if anybody can give me a few comments / suggestions on what to get. please base your decision by milage of car, looks, condition, and other suspicions just as if you was making a decision for your self. thank you.

None of the above. Avoid cars that have been modified if you are going used, theres a much greater chance that the previous owner beat on the car, etc. However, you are on the right track by only considering the type S.

Well Matt...good luck with your crew. But I must say, dont buy something just because your friends are. If you really like the car and you like how it drives... great by all means, join your friends. Test drive one of your friends cars if you haven't already. If you feel the car, go for it. If you unsure...dont, becasue then you could end up being misreable. suggestions...how about an eclipse, or a prelude. I got an idea, what if you built a car. Be different. I'vs always wanted to build an s-13 or a nissan sil-80. The only thing that has stopped me is the total lack of cash. Good luck with whatever you decide!!! :thumbs:

The first Type-S is a great choice.

I would go with the second and the third ones. They look to be the closest to stock.

Im not trying to be mean but you can get a car that performs a lot better than and rsx for under 20,000 . They are really fun though for a front wheel drive car (not my piece of cake). If you decide to get a modified one you should take it to your mechanic and have him check it out. It would probably be smarter to buy a stock one but by a modded one can really save you some money. Just be careful and never get in a rush to buy a car.

don't mean to be picky but 20,000 grand would be 20,000,000 :thumbs:

Get a beefy V8 muscle car and put their club to shame.

DC5's are tough, H20A's are strong, reliable engine's, personally.. i would go with the DC2 cause i like the way it looks, plus i like B18C5's, lol, still though.

what ever suite's you, like someone said earlier, go with what you want and don't buy just because you've got mate's that own the same type of car.

for those of you who are in america and have never heard of the term DC for the RSX/Integra, it's the JDM code, same as JZA80 for a 97 TT Supra, simple!

DC2 = 1997 Honda/Acura Integra
DC5 = 2001 Honda Integra/Acura RSX

DC5 has a bigger, better engine for high speed and potential
DC2 has a smaller, lighter, better engine for pick up..

both the DC5 and DC2 top out at around 130mph i think, i'm not exactly sure.


anyway, what ever rocks your boat, like it was said earlier, be different and invent your own ride... i know a bloke that got an EG-6 and had a DC2 rear put onto it and had the EG-6's roof cut and re-moulded to suite the fitting, looked alright until it was rammed by a fire truck..... biiiiiig insurance bonus there! :D he now own's HCR32 with an RB25DET pushin 420hp atw.
