Wow really? A girl I dated for a few months had an RSX-S and I always thought it was one of the most bland boring interiors I had ever seen.

I second that. I test drove an RSX when I was looking to buy a car. Needless to say, I bought the 3. The interior is dull, and the car itself is just a fancy civic. For north of 20k, you might as well get a loaded 3 with Navi and Xenons.

i like acura, i really wanted one over my 3, but the insurance would cost 330 dollars a month. i didnt feel like spending all of my earnings on the acura... need some spending money.

I heart Acura RSX's... i want a Type-S with a Type-R wing, and a lip kit or buddy club kit, lowered, cybernationmotorsports turbo kit~~~

But a 3 and an Type-S 0-60mph time is close i believe.

no, not close. The base rsx and the 3 are close. As for the interior, I like the rsx's but it's very hard to find a HU that fits and looks nice.

I previously owned a '02 RSX-S, now I have an '07 3GT hatch. I'd have to say the 3's interior is nicer, but just a bit.

RSX's advantages:
Nice HVAC layout
HVAC & Stereo tilted toward driver
Change drawer by window

3's advantages:
Steering wheel audio controls
Center armrest with storage
More adjustments for driver's seat
More convenient cup holder location

Also, the RSX had a much stiffer suspension, but with crappy stock tires it couldn't take advantage of it. The 3 corners much better. The RSX 2.0L engine is much nicer & refined than the 3's 2.3L, quite a bit faster too. Get it up to 6k RPM and it really moves! RSX also got better gas mileage. But overall, the 3 is easier to drive since it handles a lot better, much more control.

I like my GT's interier more than that. Granted it nice though, I'll give them that but the 3's interier is pretty much what sold me on getting the car so I obviously like it :lol:

kspec, how can you determine its the hottest interior pic with a 400x300 pixel shot of the AC KNOBS

come on man, you've made some dumb threads before but this one takes the cake. at least give us some other shots to support your statement.
