Default Difference between Acura RSX and Acura RSX s-type?

I really like this car so I'm thinking about getting one. I've been looking into them and keep seeing a regular RSX and RSX s-type but don't really know what the difference is? Also what's better a manual or Automatic? And is this a good car in general?

Any help will be appreciated! Thanks in advanced (:

Also what is the best RSX like year wise which one will you guys recommend?

the Type-S coupe benefits from an additional 46 hp and a tauter suspension just that and a some changes in the interior!!! the RSX-S of 2003 is ok but i would prefer a manual one!

Im an Acura tech ,this is one of out most solid cars ,really a shame we don't make it any more! S-type has a little more power but requires super unleaded ,the standard rsx does not require super ,it comes with a 6 speed manual only! the standard rsx has an auto or 5 speed manual..we had some trouble with the 6 speed manuals ,there was a bulletin for a grinding issue when shifting .since it was a bulletin and Not a safety recall it was only done if the car had the problem .. it was a big job that Basically requireding us to remove disassemble transmission and replace synchro`s and gear sets ,,very big job...personally i would recommend the standard rsx with stick or the auto trans, thats your prefrence , best of luck.. and all years were great cars,,
