Listen to Oomba, he's the only one that has posted correct information.

Other useful info is that all RS's come with rear drum brakes and lack proper rims and sideskirts.

Unless you're doing a complete re-do of the vehicle, I'd buy a GS.

And you can tell an RS because it always has black door handles.

Let him get a taste of his own medicine Integra.

Anyway it would have been cool if the Eclipse made it to the UK.

You could also get a GST Spyder... just a thought.

I have not driven a 2.4L Spyder, but the extra 25% displacement should amount to some very nice low-end torque.

I'd stay away from the Spider and 3rd gens. Theyre bad news all around. Besides, convertables are heavier then their coupe counterparts.

I will definitely agree with part of that. I've never heard anything particularly bad about the 2G spyders (reliability wise), but I've never payed a whole lot of attention to the spyders either. They are heavy and I've never really understood the whole Eclipse spyder thing. I would recommend a coupe if you're remotely interested in performance.
