hey guys, I drove my buddy's brand new 2002 Acura RSX Type-S( Honda Integra in Canada and the rest of the world). I was very impressed with this car. I liked the fact that the redline is @ 8K rpms. The tranny is a 6 speed manual and has a short throw shift. It is one of the most smooth shifting tranny's i have eever driven with. The interior seats are leather wrapped dart vader seats similar to the ones in the E36 M3. Car really takes off over 4K rpm's since the VTEC kicks in in the high range. My friend is planning on doing a few mods like intake, exhaust, pully's, suspension and a body kit. He already put 18" ENKEI rims in a satin chrome finish. The car doesn't handle as well as the E36 bimmers on the corners. I took a turn on an on ramp on the expressway and i felt some body roll from the car. he really needs to lower the car soon. I drove the car upto 120mph and cycled through the 6 gears. I was very impressed but i think the bimmers handle much better IMO..

2 trailer park girls go round me outside, round me outside, round me outside
I miss my E36, but the E46 will soon be here!

I got in a race with one just a few days ago !! I was driving a slightly modified Toyota Celica GTS ! It was a pretty close race. We started @ a set of lights ! I timed my start perfectly and went though the gears smoothly and flawlessly!~ I hit every shift and we ran upto 160km ! He was a car lenght behind me from the start and ended up about 5-6 car lengths when we hit 160 ! They are really quick little cars ! They handle worse than the celica...........THE RSX has way more body roll :puke: :cool: :idea:

my roomate has a rsx-s with a tien coilover suspension, wheels, and an intake... the car will outcorner just about anything now... I would tell your friend to get an intake soon because the gains are amazing and the sound is even better. you hit vtec and it just screams
