Default I just bought a 2003 Honda Civic EX and it says "RS" on the front grill. What does RS mean?

RS stands for Rally Sport. That is most commonly associated with the Chevy Camaro. The RS means nothing to Honda. The previous owner most likely just took a RS emblem for a Camaro and put it on their Civic. That is all.

in japan, hondas come in many more models and have way better EVERYTHING. better engines, better options, better models. so you have a civic with a RS on the grill. that's a JDM part (japanese domestic market) that the previous owner put on. it didnt come that way from a dealership in the USA. that means, that part was only made for civics in japan. from my understanding, they came on the civic ferio rs. its just a civic with a lip kit, spoiler, and a couple extra options. so its NOT a Camaro badge like some top contributor mentions and it doesn't mean rat sh!t like some moron said. it means rally sport to put it simply. being a JDM Honda enthusiast that i am, i would suggest NOT taking that grill off. its special and rare to be seen on this side of the globe. plus i think it looks nicer then the stock grill.
