How much have you spent on your RSX or plan to spend? I'm seeing if what I plan to put into this car within the next year or two is not as much as other members, equal or a lot more.

If you could, break it down to the parts and how much each one costed you then add it all up for a total.

i spent the following:

eibach prokit: $229.00 (not installed yet)
a-spec wing: $700.00 (includes installation from acura)
injen cai: $260

total: $1189

im not going to spend any more money on the car because I will be trading it in sometime in the near future. and I want to get another car so why spend money to make this car go fast when I trade it in for something FOR EXAMPLE

m3/sti/evo ?

i dunno i see it like u put average 5000$ for a turbo for a type-s you can save that money and trade in car and get a faster car with oem turbo out the box

dunno ...

I spent around $3,000....that seemed to be about right to get it the way I wanted it to look, quicker, and feeling better. I would have MAYBE put another $500 or so into if if I had kept it.

I set the cap at $10k, but realistically it might get to the point where I spend up to $15k (see sig for parts listing). We don't even have a race track in Hawaii anymore, so I may throw the supercharger plans out the window.

i plan to drop about 6500 total because this car will last me through college or at least senior year of college then ill probably return this car to bone stock, sell everything aftermarket and keep it as my DD and buy my new weekend toy car

If I ever looked at that number, then I'd probably jump off a cliff. And, I could put $10K more into it, easily. Frightening, but the sad thing is that I probably will...
