If you do decide to sell let me know I’m in Florida looking for a type s in red lolI had no idea these cars were worth this much. Just looking at book value I figured my ‘red 06 RSX Type S was worth no more than $5k. It’s what I would say is very good condition with 119,000 miles. No modifications. Even clutch and exhaust original. Third set of tires have about 3,000 miles on them. It runs as good as the day I bought it new off I’ve actuallshowroom floor.
What’s wrong? The roof and trunk lid are fading a bit, which I hear is normal here in Florida. (For some reason the rest of the car including the hood never faded.) Most troubling are the clips that keep the right side of the lower rear panel and the right side of the lower front panel flush no longer hold tight (every once in awhile I give them a whack and that pops them back in close enough that nobody would notice)
Except for the usual door dings and minor chips on lower front panel the car looks great. The guy who runs the tire shop where I get oil changes always says to let him know before I sell it to anyone. Several people have come up to me and asked me if I wanted to sell it. To be honest I don’t want to sell it because I can think of anything within readon that I’d like to have. I’ve owned a lot of sporty cars, including three Corvettes, and this Type S RSX is among my all-time favorites along with my ‘66 small-block Vette roadster and a 1960 Triumph TR-3.
The other day was getting the oil changed and the guy asked again if I would sell it. I said there really wasn’t anything like it. Then I asked him about a Toyota 86 or Subaru BRZ might be a decent replacement, and he just shook his head and said”Not even close to this. Don’t bother.”
