  1. General RSX Discussion
    Currently I have a SSM and I'm going to paint it. I absolutely love the Milano Red RSX's I see on here, they look soooo sexy especially with white wheels :D What I've also heard is the nightmare stories of it turning into a Milano Pink. Does this happen very easily, or does this only apply to...

  7. Wheels & Tires
    So I'm having trouble deciding what to do regarding wheels. I didn't want wheels at first because I thought they were a lot of money that I'd rather put towards something like a SC kit or suspension parts or something. So I thought about powdercoating my wheels but couldn't decide black or...

  14. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hey I'm contemplating returning my Injen CAI that I just got, tried to install it once, no luck. I can still return it here right? I'm fearing hydrolock, I'm one of those crazy drivers that don't really slow down (much) for speed bumps, rr tracks, nor puddles, and I'm scared one day of ending...
  15. Car Care RSX
    Well here the situation... I have a 03 abp-s. Its in beautiful condition for its age. You can tell it was well maintained by the previous owners. Anyways, the previous owner obviously used bathroom towels on it because theres swirl marks all over the thing. You can see them unless its in direct...

I was going to the dealer next week to purchase my dream car but now I am not so sure after reading about all of the tranny and assorted problems everyone seems to be having...
  19. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I live in AZ and im not worried about hydrolocking because I wont drive in the rain. But I was reading in a post just a few seconds ago and he said something about, " would if a rock went up it, and into your motor." Than he was saying explain that to the dealer and about your warantee. I go to...
  20. All Motor RSX
    there ya go...you will not hydrolock, I promise. the warning at the bottom about driving too fast would only be if the snorkel was facing straight forward. if anything, when you hit a puddle your car will die cause it isnt getting enough air and that is it.
