what car should i be looking at? both prices are very similar since most dealerships in socal have markups or options on the civic. the only reason why i am considering the civic is the HLSD. otherwise the type-s wins in every category.

Isn't Acura getting rid of the RSX?

if you really want the hlsd go with the SI, especially since ur considering getting it decked out with options, so why not.  of course there is something to be said for getting a car they may soon be out of production...

wait for the type-r.  

seriously though, i would get the type-s, there are more tuning options (if your into that)

Acura is getting rid of the RSX-S but who cares? It's still a really nice car for its price range. I can't see myself growing fond to the Si's interior.. it is way too "boy racerish". I'll have to test drive both again and make up my mind. The type-r is going to be pretty expensive.. rumors to be over 25k. I doubt many people will pay more than 25k for a civic.

personally i wouldnt pay more than 20k for a honda unless its an s2000.  but since you were looking at this class, i figured i would suggest some options.  between the two, get the rsx, like i said, much more tuning options, better interior, better car.  some say no lsd, the new Si is just as good blablabla... go with the type-s.

your main difference is the interior. And like you said, you dont like the civic boy racer interior.

A Civic Si is up there on most stolen vehicle list.  As for the RSX I don't know but I know its around there.

hope i'm not too late to offer my opinion.  i'd go with the type-s!  the car looks nicer and is nicer inside.  however, you should test drive both to make sure which one fits you better

I'm considering the Civic hybrid to replace my Mazda 626. Any pricing info?

I think the down side for buying a Type-S is that in the future it would be hard to purchase parts for it because it is going out of production. But the good thing is that you will never worry about the Type-S getting a facelift or redesign etc.. because you have the last generation of that model. For example, the Toyota Celica has been out of production for 2 years now and to people like me I still think the car is really new because there are no new models for the Celica. Good luck with the purchase, I really like the Civic Si's interior, very simple and clean.

i don't think there is going to be a diminsh product for the Type-S. Look what happen with the Integra? Besides the Type-S is going out from what I hear is that Acura is trying to go more upscale. With the New Civic Si it doesn't make sense to have the Type-S. The old EP3 was 160hp? and the DC5 was 205hp. See what I mean?
