Just bought a type S yesterday and brought it home. As it sits is how I got it.

124xxx miles, 17" Motegi wheels, AEM CAI, I still don't know what it's dropped on but it's not stock lol

Have no idea what I'd like to do with it yet but either way, don't have much money to start messing with it yet anyways (story of a broke college kid)...When I get some money to throw in it then I will

Check out the pix, leave criticism/suggestions if you'd like...

Mileage? Price?

Very nice. If I ever upgrade my EM2 to another Honda, it will definitely be an RSX.

Very nice pick up for the price. These look great with an oem rear wing. I don't like the rims, but your ride has a lot of potential.

Not digging the wheels IMO

Thanx for the comments, I'm not really feelin the wheels either. Something about them, maybe the color or maybe they just aren't for that car, idk. Retrofit/HID's hopefully coming soon, and when I get the money, hopefully a paint matched wing. Maybe change the wheels back to OEM or nicer. Oh, and fog lights. Not promising it'll happen tomorrow, but cosmetically, those are my priorities...

LOVE the interior.


You really dont need to do much to make these cars look good. If I were you id buy 05-06 wheels and sell off the ugly Motegis. And more of a drop lol.

Yea these motors last a while if they're maintained right, mine is also an 02. In the mean time, I'm taking simple precautions (drain/fill tranny, oil change, flushing the brake lines) basically getting it to where I want it before I do anything else with it.

I didnt mean it like that :roll:

Lame interior, non painted side skirts, small muffler, 160hp, VTEC-E, long gears, 7000 redline, 5sp, etc etc. If im going to have a 2.0L motor it BETTER have more HP that 160 haha.

Premium = same interior
It's gearing is SHORTER than the Type-S through the first 3 (EP3 gearing is shorter still)
Same torque but produced lower in the rev range

You forgot that the Type-S has bigger brakes though, which I think are the real big difference.

OP needs to black out those headlights.

Never really been fond of blacked out headlights, but now that I think about it, i don't think it'd look too bad. I'm definitely doing something about those headlights, it's starting to bother me to look at them constantly lol. I've been contemplating the idea of a silver/black theme, trying to keep it clean.

nicoyita1 you should drop a supercharger in that thing and get coilovers and some sticky tires and run auto-x with it i bet you'll surprise alot of people there

I dunno whats with DC5 people and black outs, they dont even look that good except making cars look like they have black eyes.

Have you tried looking into CTR style head lights for it? You know with a slight dark chrome, thatll be sick.

If I had that car with no money, id buy some used Function and forms, clean up the head lights, put on a paint type R style lip, 02-04 fog lights, and slam it on 05-06 -S wheels.

You speak my exact thoughts. Meanwhile, I went to the honda dealership and got a serpentine belt, oil, filter, mtf and also bought some ngk plugs...Today I plan on taking necessary maintenance precautions before I get started doing anything. And I'm looking to trade my wheels for some 05-06 s wheels and maybe powdercoat them black
