This is coming from the point of view of an 18 year old college freshman who owns a tastefully modified 2000 Civic Si; no body kits or huge, heavy 18" wheels adorn my car, simply an extensive list of engine and suspension modifications. The specs aren't up on this car, but I can tell you that it's running the RSX Type-R's 200-hp 2.0 Liter engine in a 2500 lb. car. Not exactly a Mustang Cobra, but quite fast nonetheless. This car has about as much in common with the fat-tipped, stickered, winged '96 Civic DX's you see on the streets of your hometown as does a brand new Trans Am WS-6 with an '84 Formula, replete with screaming chicken graphics. Try not to judge all imports or import drivers by the actions of a number of R!ce Boys who know nothing about their cars and treat them the same way. This Type-R is a true sports car meant to be enjoyed by those intelligent enough to drive it correctly and take care of it well. Nothing hurts me more than to see a 16 year old behind the wheel of a dirty, scratched, dinged-up Integra Type-R (and we have plenty of these in my hometown). So bust on R!ce Boys and their gay cars as much as you want, but I ask you to not group true import enthusiasts with them--if you do, you are as bad as the R!ce Boys themselves.
