    I will list why everyone hates them...

    Big
    Heavy
    No balls from the showroom
    Really bad suspension (where the dual wishbone suspension?)
    Ugly
    Did I mention big...

    Reason to get one...

    The RSX type S engine can fit in it
    They respond pretty good to boltons
    The seats are nice

    That is about all I can say.

    Your ass should just get two different cars, Rex with motor swap and then soemthing daily. this makes things really easy.

    I/H/E is always a good start. Jackson Racing's new blower did like 206/125. That seems shady for being 2.0 liter and ivtec. An A2, R, or TSX swap down the road would be tight.

    i live in ct and i can get one arourd here for that much but if i wanted to get one it was going to be brand new. i think since all the replys im going to get a 5th gen ando a ls/vtec swap. that will be cheaper and smoke the shit out of the 03. also i selling a crx so if anybody wants to trade a 5th gen h/b for a crx let me know!

    I learned my mistake about buying a brand new car. Don't do it unless you have tons of $$ and just want to do it to say you got a brand new car. Get an off lease or demo or something like that, you'll save so much money.

    buy what you want to buy because you like it. dont let anyone tell you not to buy a car unless they have experience owning it and they can tell you from first hand experience any problems with it
