    i have a white acura rsx... 2004...

    I want it to look less girly. I feel the shape it is seems to be a girly car. I dont wanna change the color cause there are zero scratches or dings. nothing is wrong with the current factory paint... so why waste the money? but what can I add on to make it look like a guys car? and in what order?

    I was thinking Rims and then lights

    or bodykit then rims.

    or even just rims and maybe a new muffler. Idk. any ideas?

    You could boost it. the sound of the BOV will make it a little less girlie.

    What kind of money do you have, and despite my non-rice taste, if that's what your into, then go for it. If you're into that stuff, I'd say go to a customs shop, have them order/install a high quality poly-somethingoranother body kit, and have them paint it. Then, maybe get some 17's or 18's, like I said, if that's what your into.

    Blow off valve - releases built up pressure in forced induction applications when your foot lets off the throttle, like when you shift.

    Body kits are expensive. Good ones anyway, I don't recommend fiberglass. My buddy had a local shop do one on his civic a couple years back, ran about $1200 installed/painted. Rims as well, larger ones anyway, are expensive. They retail at local shops for usually between $500 and $800, which whill probably get you a 15" -18" set of rims, with tires.

    Lower the car and set it on some gunmetal or some other dark colored wheels. The stance will make it look agressive and the wheels will make a nice contrast with the white paint. A subtle lip kit will also give it a nice look.

    is it a base or a type s? personally, i would drop it, 17's or 18's, maybe an ITR wing and a CF hood? or you could always put on lambo doors, an unmolded widebody kit, chrome dubs, and dual exhaust:headsmash:

    I'd do a drop and wheels before you add anything like a bodykit. Maybe a tasteful, factory-style spoiler as well (if you don't already have one). Also you could look into eyebrows for your headlights. That would make it look more aggressive.

    i saw a very clean white rsx on the freeway the other day.

    Type R lip kit, Bronze wheels, CF hood, and a GOOD exhaust will clean it up nicely.

    saw a bone stock exterier with a greddy turbo pushing 350hp last summer. a big fmic takes away the girlyness of any car.

    looks like mine did when i first got her. the biggest thing you can do is paint the headlights black, i have different rims now but you get the ideal

    Yes, start it off by installing a blow off valve, that will make it a mans car. :D

    And one of them is a Supra? Post pics. What kind of work do you do?

    As for the rsx, listen to 99sidude and brutal. They have given some of the best advice.
