HEY! I finally picked up my 2005 PWP RSX Type-S today at noon! I didn't go to school (I'm a senior in H.S.) so I could pick up my car; my parents said its ok :D I couldn't sleep the night before. This is my first car which I've been wanting/saving for for years! I'm 18 and today was the first time I drove stick :eek: Looks high but don’t worry, I ordered Progress Springs, CRSX Edition Intake, Gold Emblem Kit, Ings+1 eyelids and floormats.

*O yea, I named her "Candace" which means fire white/pure in Greek

1. I drove to Park Avenue Acura in New Jersey in the morning and they had my car detailed and saw Paul Epstein (my sales consultant) cleanin up my car a lil.

2. Shiny

3. Drove the car next to the SSM RSX that I test-drove while my parents signed the papers. :p

4. Paul set the keys and stuff on his desk

Wellllll, there was a problem with the keys. Park Ave. didn't have a PWP so they got it swapped from Wayne Acura but Wayne Acura gave the wrong keys which were for the TSX so we went to the Acura service shop with Paul and got one of my keys cut and w/e and the rest will be shipped. Got a lot of free acura shirts and other stuff. I got sad because one of my dad's friends thats an Acura Mechanic was like congrats, you're not gonna do a lot of stuff to it are you? And I was like not reeli (lying). And he told my parents about how some young guys did stuff and the engine chek lights or w/e kept coming on also cuz someone put an intake and it didn't fit right and how someone lowered their car and when they tried to lift the car for the wheel alignment they couldn't cuz the car was low. And my dad was thinking about returnin the stuff I ALREADY ordered..coincidentally INTAKE, PROGRESS SPRINGS, floormats, and the gold emblem kit..
Anyway, since my dad knew how to drive stick, he drove my RSX-S and I followed with the MDX and we went to Van Saun Park nearby so I could practice...WOWOWOWOW. I kinda knew the concept and I stalled about 15+times just trying to get the car to start moving. I let the clutch out too quickly all those times before I realized that I could leave the cluth half down or w/e while applyin a lil gas..I thought I'd be riding the clutch! Well, w/e I drove around and go the hang of it. since it was an empty parking lot..I was wonderin if I'm ready to drive back around where I live..New York City

5. Me- Not a good pic. o well. I’ll take another one


6.. Front ¾ View



7. Side View- Soon to be lowered. *My/My dad’s MDX in the back

10. Rear Type-S


11. Close Front


So I drove around the my place in NYC and wow. I stalled because of the stupid hills. Then some people drive like idiots and block my lane causing me to stall. One time I stalled some a$$h0le kept honking. The ppl in NYC suck. Wow, I don’t know if I’ll ever do well driving in NYC..made me think if it was worth it getting a Type-S. Someday I’ll drive well.

12. Well, decided that’s enough driving..prob. 4+hours. Started with about 40miles, now there’s 99 miles on the car.


13. Blurry interior shot


14. Engine shot- Red engine bay and Injen CAI soon.


15. I live in a condo so I got the RSX-S parked indoors next to my/my dad’s 02 MDX.


I had a pretty fun day besides the hills, other stupid NYC drivers/taxis and stalling. I can’t wait till I learn how to drive well so I actually see what the Type-S can do.

Comments welcome. :wavey:

Congrats on the new car! Seems like BOM and PWP are the most dominant '05 colors preferred by CRSX members!

Take a stick lesson and practice before you actually start driving your Type S on the streets, especially with all that snow :eek:

Whooo!! Glad to hear you finally got your car after waiting so long. Don't worry about those honking people, just ignore'em. =] When are you gonna have your Progress springs installed? Can't wait to see what it (and mine) will look like. Again, congrats. =] Just remember to learn to walk before you run.

Thanx! For the springs, I read that it'll be 2 weeks before they're released :confused:

Hehe, don't worry. You will pick up after a week. After 1.5 months, you'll be shifting like a pro. Just don't develop bad habits while you are still learning.

And unless you drive in traffic, you will won't really learn how to drive a stick completely.

Congrats again man. Come down to SJ sometime. I know it's far, but you gotta break your car in somehow! And yeah, we'll help you with the installs too. I just hope the weather gets better. PWP ownz. And don't worry about stallin'...you'll pick it up in no time. I know I did on mine and my clutch is still fine at 75K.
