I would think it could, since the A-Spec package has no performance gains mostly appearance and a few suspension changes?

the dealership would probably put it on a base, what would the difference be if it was on a typeS than a base? its just one more kit for them to sell

One day while driving on the freeway, I passed Sterling McCall Acura. While I was glancing over, I saw that they had at least four or five RSX'es out on display in front of the front doors. From my perspective it seemed like the A-Spec package was installed on all of them and I could've sworn I saw an EBP out there too... It may have been a NBP Type S but it sure looked EBP to me... :dontknow:

What does Acura care, money is money.

I am sure they would install it on a base rsx.
I was referring to having the base RSX sold off the lot with a A-Spec package, if that does anything.. :drink:

instead of getting a base w/ the A spec setup why not just get a type S ?!
yeah i know man, i would get a type-s, but my parents are paranoid about the 6-speed manual, and they dont want to pay the extra insurance on it. its kinda out of my hands, as long as im at home :dontknow:

I think the A-Spec package would fit on the Base or premium since if you ever look to get suspension upgrades they always say 2002 and uo RSX and if you go to get say an exhaust it'll say 2002 and up RSX type S or Base. The A-spec pacgae would be nice to get but in my position I have an OEM kit on its way not and have the spoiler already. I'd be better off doing the suspension my way, or getting the package and reselling parts off of it.

no u can't have a A-Spec package on a base
Yes, you can. I have the A-Spec rims and tires installed on my base (click the sig). The suspension will also easily fit, as will the Type-R wing, and body kit. Any dealership will probably sell you the whole package, or Sunnyside Acura in New Hampshire will sell the wheels, spoiler, and suspension separately.

Of course you could put A-Spec parts on a base. Where most are getting at is, will the dealer put an A-Spec label on a base? No.

Its all depends ont he dealer.

DarkSoldier55 - The mods of the A-Spec are:

-OEM Body Kit (installing it by itself of getting another body kit altogther will not void your warranty.

-Type R wing (you can buy it seperately and replicas of it are very cheap, and it won't void your waranty)

-Titanium Interior Dash Kit (you can buy others - I have a Red CF 36 piece kit instead of the like 12 piece Acura kit and it won't void your warranty, also, you can get it elsewhere for cheaper)

-Enkei Rims and I think Yokohama tires (you can get nicer rims out there and for cheaper, and they won't void the warranty)

All of the above mods can be installed by yourself, have different, cheaper types elsewhere, and they don't void the warranty.

The springs are the only thing that Acura dealers might get picky about, however, Comptech parts (and sometimes Mugen) are supported by a lot of Acura dealers and they'll install and warranty it. This way you can get a lower car. E.g. one Acura dealer here supports Progress, Comptech, Mugen, Spoon and a few others. Another supports Mugen and Comptech.

Everything the A-Spec offers can be bought seperately and will be much cheaper than just getting the dealer to install the A-Spec.
