Hey all,

First post. I am gonna get a rsx-s next week. dealer has the arctic blue and black one sitting on the lot. going in on monday to sign the papers for the blue one. can't wait!!!

just some questions. i am thinking of getting the type-r wing from the dealer (Cdn$500). will this look weird if i do not have a body kit on? i don't want to get the kit nor lower my car yet because its the dead of winter. if i do get the kit, its gonna be the oem kit.

can't wait!!!

Get the wing, but don't get them from the dealership. I bought my Type-R wing painted from some guy in Ottawa(trimking1 on ebay) for 260 CDN shipped to my house, 240CDN less then what the dealership is charging you. Took me a little over 1 hour to install.

wow... lots of different ideas. cool. yeah, i want to get the type-r kit once spring hits. the thing is that i can most prob get very good discounts from the dealership if i get everything now.

thanks for all the info!

personally, I think the wing alone looks outta place. It's so tall it needs the rest of the body kit to "even it out". Hope that makes sense.

you know I love it Stumpy!

I actually don't mind the Type R spoiler with nothing else...well the only RSX here that has it is a Silver Type-S that has the gunmetal rims along with it...so that actually looks really nice.

I'd do some DIY headlights and redded-out tails at least if I got just the spoiler

Personally, I think the the wing without the kit looks off. The wing sits too high. It makes the body look skinny. If there were a kit to make the car look beefy then the wing would add to the look instead of clashing with the car without it.

No kit w/ a Type R wing is fine,especially in a Type S model where the sideskirts are color matched,if you really like the wing might as well get it,coz ur going to get them anyway sooner or later,black out your headlights and if you could at least lower'em:thumbsup:

question about the wing. when driving the car...is it a bitch to see out the back window w/ the type R wing???
Well... it does block your view a little... and it also depends on your drop angle.. mine is sorta bad.. cause I have the backend lower than the front... so it brings the wing down even more.. I just can never see peoples faces behind me...
