Acura Rsx question

hi there i was wondering if you guys can give me an opinion on something, i'm gettin a new car and its gona be a acura rsx, i'm debatin whether or not to get a type-s or just a low base model, the thing is the type-s is 10,000 dollars more then the base but everything looks the same for the base pretty much besides the leather and the moon roof, but the headache question is should i spend 10,000dollars to get something a lil more high powered the type-s is 210 horsepower, the base is alright to at 160horse power thats pretty good cuz i live in a small city, is there anyone that can give their opinions about this? which would you get? would the extra 50hp be worth 10,000 you think? or should i go with a base model? thanks for helpin me out in advance

There are many many many differences between the RSX and RSX-S...too many to list. The RSX-S is way more sporty and fun to drive than the base RSX. Now, is this $10k CAD? I still wouldnt think it'd be that much of a price difference in Canada on the RSX and RSX-S. Here in the states a base RSX is $20k and the RSX-S $23k.

The 10k in question cannot be CAD

3k US = 3,604.20 CAD

So it has to be somewhere else...

Get the RSX-S...you wont regret it...you'll regret getting the RSX....if you want an RSX...just get the Civic Si (current model...if you want)

34,000.00 CAD = 28,313.28 USD (RSX-S in Canada)

24,000.00 CAD = 19,985.84 USD (RSX in Canada)

Here's what you do...come down to the USA and buy the RSX for $23,570 (MSRP)

$34k for an RSX-S!!!! Even in Canada that's WAY too inflated. $23k seems about right CAD for a base RSX. You shouldnt have to pay more than $27k-$28k for a RSX-S CAD.
