So which all the information out there which car is better? I know these cars are rivals when it comes to performance, handling, hp, tq, n jus everything. It seems like they battle it out in exterior, or interior, not to mention that almost identical engine k20z3 compared to type-s k20z1. So to me I don't know which is better. Personally im a si fan but still need more information. So is Si > Rsx Type-S ???????

Performance is basically similar betwen the two, RSX has 201hp Si has 197hp, Si has limited slip differential RSX doesn't. Si has cool modern dashboard, RSX has caveman dashboard (compared to Civic). RSX has leath, Si have black alcantra mouse fur. RSX has cool hatch batch Si has notchback. RSX is discontinued since last year, Si redesign came out last year. RSX is coupe only, Si is sedan + coupe. RSX has cool Acura brand name, Si has Honda and Civic (you can't win them all). RSX has more mods because it's been around longer but that'll change. RSX has better looking OEM wheels (not talking about miniature 16"). RSX-s costs more in insurance than Si even though they're comparable. I'd go with the Si because it's newer, I'd go for a used '06 RSX over a new: Tiburon/Cobalt/Tc/Sentra SER anyday. I hate used cars because it's like you're buying somebody else's headache most of the time.
