    ok guys last thursday night i was driving kinda fast and when i hit my brakes, they locked on my and i swerved into a fire hyrdrant. luckily it didnt do much damage but i need to replace the front end. my friends suggested a 99-00 but i dont know how much itll cost and they say its a bolt in process and only thing i would need to do is cut the fender and weld the radiator support. which conversion you guys think i should do or should i just restore it to stock(DX trim)?

    The Si front doesn't look any different from the DX front... and as far as I know, they are the same. Maybe the bumper lenses are different, but that was a change between 89 and 90.

    I would go with the SiR front end if you could pull it off. The curves of the 6G front just don't look right on the more angular CRX.

    the Si has the imitation air ducts; while the dx has none.

    I don't know though, because my 91 HF has the air ducts as well, maybe a 88-89/90-91 thing :shrug:

    Maybe. I'll have to go back and look at some old pictures.

    Nope, my 89 Si didn't have the ducts. Maybe it is a half generation change.

    The 88 and 89 crx (all models) had a bumper without air ducts. The ducts were added for the 90-91 models. It isn't trim based, its year based.
