Too bad the front end is so ugly.

Good numbers, though. However, give me something that is lower tech and easier to modify. 220 is a very good number, but with the way that engine management systems are evolving, getting much more might be quite difficult.

Also, I highly doubt that car will see US shores in that trim.

Oh well, at least Honda is moving in the right direction with more powerful engines.

I did too, but the 5Gen's front end has some edges on it at least.

The front end on this car just curves down to the bumper. There are hardly any edges on it.

The lights look like a mix between the new 3Series BMWs, and the current Civics.

Well, in my opinion even though the integra is based off the civic platfrom I would like that honda could make it look better than the new civic. I do however like this pic better than others that I have seen. Any idea on the price of the 2002 ITR? 25-27k?

at first glance, i thought *EWWWWW*...

Do the sides come up that much normally on Recaro SRII and SRIII's? Do the SRD's come up that much? Every pic I've seen of SRD's did look like it came up that much.

I like the front. Hella better than current
Ludes. I'd not be surprized to see in it
US shores. I'd not ditch my lude though; the
car is too light; it's based on civic -what
do you expect? It'd be a cool buzzer but
I'd tilt toward CL direction a bit and lude'd
be still a better compromise.

I don't like that half-ass wing-west skirt
on the front. Stock-lude skirt on the front
would've been better.

Yeah, same with me on the 5th gen. Ugly at first, sexy now. But I already like the looks of the RSX. Maybe its the CP035 lookalike wheels. I think it just looks sleek over all. I wonder if theyll put foglights in those two holes on the bottom sides.

Now picture it with the wide mouth body kit you KNOW is gonna come out for it. Then itll be ass ugly.

On price, i think the RSX is going to cost more than current integras, so I figure about 29k for the new Type R version.

I just think its funny how Acura must use letters instead of names, RSX, versus Integra.

I prefer names to letters.

I guess this is Acura's several year long attempt at making their Hondas sound more expensive or classy. Copying Lexus and Infiniti, which use letter and number combos.

Funny how Honda of Japan has stuck to using names. I wish they would do the same here.
