Well I posted a previous thread, got locked as I put it in the wrong section. My bad!

I picked up a 2002 rsx prem model off an older guy who wanted it gone. Told me first $500 takes it, so I JUMPED on it. It has high miles 290 km but seems to be in good working order. I just fixed the power steering and plan on fixing some rust spots.

Any other suggestions to get some more miles out of this old girl? I will be using it as a winter beater as my 06 si is my summer fun. Pics attached.

I got 187K mi (approx. 300k km) on my base 03 manual and it still runs like a champ. Engine bay free of oil leak. I abuse of her delivering pizza though lol. Only bad now are my ball joints need replacing. The usual tune up (spark plugs, mobil 1 synthetic, check air filter), probably a new drive belt if you hear a squeak when the engine starts cold. I installed the injen cai tuesday, and whooo she roars! Sick Si yo:thumbsup:

what do you guys think?

So I've had my car for about 4 months now and I just wanted to start a thread so I can get feedback/opinions on what I've done so far. Any and all constructive criticism is welcome (just don't be a dick about shit lol). FYI this is my first thread that I try uploading pics, let alone a show-off thread, so if any pics don't come up or if I formatted things wrong, I apologize in advanced. Thanks for checking it out!

A couple pics of when I first bought the car in February.
2005 BOM Rsx Type-s, $14,600 with 67,000 miles on it with black leather interior. 100% bone stock, not on 05-06 wheels though haha :shady:





Installing Function and Form Type 2 coilovers and APEXI N1 exhaust.





Lowered a little more..


Most recently (literally 2 days ago haha) I decided to clean up the engine bay a little and make it look a little nicer. Decided to paint my valve cover gold, deleted my cruise control, throttle cable tuck along with a little fuel injector harness tuck. Not much, but a lot better looking for spending a total of like $50 lol:D

Before..


During..




All done!



Anybody have any tips on tucking away the spark plug wires?


So far this is all I have done with it, but I do plan on A LOT more mods in the future for this car! Full Mugen lip kit, type-r wing, OEM fogs, header, k-pro, supercharger and some more engine bay tucking. oh yea, and some REAL wheels! lol
thanks again for checking the pics out! :laughing::wavey:

same here, not a fan of the body kit but it's not riced out to the point it's an eye sore. rims are meh, but it has a nice ride height and it's clean. If you like it, do it, it's your car.
