I just picked up my 05 RSX type S. This
car has some new features that greatly
improve the vehicle over the 04 model.
The new headlights and tail lights look
much sharper, and the lowered body adds
not only cosmetically, but aids
tremendously in the handling department.
New for 05 are 17" 5 spoke wheels that
look outstanding. They have also added
a larger exhaust tip, which sounds like
a formula 1 vehicle. So much fun to
drive revving the vtec up over 8k.
I'm a previous Civic SI owner, which was
stolen, and wanted to step up to the
next level. This car does not disappoint.
8100 rpm redline, and new lowered body
A bit more torque would be nice, but
certainly fun exactly as it is.
