Default Who can tell me something about the RSX?

Ok so we have the Acura RSX 2002 - 2004 look and I got this 1 big question on my mind! What is the difference between the RSX(regular) and the Type S?! I want your suggestion and why. Thanks. THE RSX club shall live on!

Regular has 160HP. 0-60mph in 7.1 seconds at best. Top Speed is limited to 130mph. Offered in Automatic and 5 speed manual transmission.Type S has a 200HP engine. 0-60mph in 6.7 seconds. Top Speed is 142mph. The RSX Type S has an optional larger rear wing, Type S emblems inside and out, a higher revving engine, a 6 speed manual transmission only, a sportier suspension for better handling, and larger wheels.

these other answers are nothing compared to a test drive in a base rsx and than a test drive in the type S. they are two completely different cars, the rsx in general is nice but the type S just gives you more in every aspect of driving
