The CRX, however small it may be, is a zippy little rocket that leaves the driver craving more and more road to test its capabilities. I had been the proud owner of an Si for nearly 8 years before its premature abduction some odd months ago. Though it had left me wanting something bigger and something faster, the CRX stayed with me through and through because of its nimble and driver oriented nature. Of course I had a few modifications to the suspension that allowed full control of corner balancing, and modifications to the engine that tweaked up the horsepower numbers to a more substantiated amount. Do not let the car in its stock form fool you; there lies a beast within!
Driver oriented nature in the USDM models: Manual everything! Windows, seats, transmission. These features also happen to be what I like the least about the CRX.
The japanese models really scored big with CRX owners in the states because of the extra options that "JDM" models had. Optional glass roof, power windows, cruise control, power door locks, power folding mirrors. It would have been nice to have all that in the US.
