Yep.. I shoulda gotten an S.. I have the base 5 speed.. its still pretty quick tho!

But the S's rims are gorgeous, that extra horsepower amazing, and the mods actually worth it.. I think it would have turned into a money pit though.. so I like to think the price to power ratio of most base mods keep me from dropping all my money on my car.. I'll probably get CAI.. and thats it.. if I got an S I woulda went after a nice race header, ws exhaust (I don't like to be loud really), cai, and k pro, and I think I'd be pretty set.. then probably some Tein drop.. damn the S's look superb.. but at least I'm saving on gas, insurance, and total cost ;p

Welp, I can only look forward, this is my first stick shift car superb one at that, I wonder what my next car will be?!

I started having second thoughts as well. Felt like I should've gotten a type-S, or at least a stick shift. But I was planning on only keeping my RSX for 3-5 years. So what's the point in spending more on a type-S (and on the gas) when I'm planning on upgrading later anyway.

Good idea, only get an intake as far as power mods go. Save ure pennies while u build up ure anticipation for a faster car and then get someone fast in 3 or 4 years.

:iamwiths: And put a nice drop on it, along with some other exterior mods. As far as looks, you can make the base look just as nice. Enjoy

Yeah. What's the point of spending more for only the extra speed of the S, when the S is falling behind in the sporty compact class anyways. You would end up spending more on the S and still get spanked by a cheaper Mazda Speed 3, Dodge Caliber SRT4 or Neon SRT4.
