Not on ClubRSX....which is the only relevant forum on the topic.

Great looking RSX! I had the same color and everything. There are days when I think I sorta miss my RSX... then I hop in my e36 which is being transformed into a race car and completely forget about it.

That being said... I'm sure a Honda will hold up better over the years than my e36 which seems to be falling apart slowly. Guess it only helps pave the road for more mods.

As for the red badges... they look great in my opinion. An Acura is a Honda everywhere else in the world.

Thanks, it's definitely a great little car.

How do you compare it to the 335?

They do!

And the little "M" badges inside non M BMW's add at least 20whp for each little "M" badge.

Rice or kraut?
You decide!

Well mainly the fact that I'm a guitarist and my amp is pretty big, but I could actually fit all of my gear in the RSX. With my BMW, the trunk doesnt open wide enough to get my amp cabinet in it, so I always have to have other guys in my band take it for me. Ends up being a hassle but it always works out. And other than that, just the maintenance, but the BMW is worth every penny so it's all good. Enjoy your new BMW

Here is a pic of my old RSX:

Nice car and even better engine. Unless you get an M3 E9X, unfortunately you won't ever find a BMW engine that is as fun as this NA 2.0 I4, assuming you prefere NA over FI. Well, that is my personal opinion, I really wished ther was an S2000 Coupé!


Best wishes!

I don't lol.

The 335i has a completely different feel. It's heavy, less engaging and quiet. The RSX was light, nimble, thrashy, and torqueless--- it made for a fun car but not a very refined daily driver type of car. Which was fine for the time while I owned it because I was in high school to college. I think it would drive me insane now though. With that being said I'll be looking for more a compromise between the cushy 335i and my track prepped M3 for my next car... maybe an S54 Z3 M coupe or something.

Is that two different cars, OP, or did you update the front to the refreshed version? I don't see many RSXs anymore...used to see them all the time.

Beautiful car. I love the sound of Honda engines. VTEC is so damn addictive.
