The rear 3/4 view has some nice crease lines which follows the
family traits of the CL and TL.
There are no side moldings on the car to ward off door dings.
Just be careful when parking your car in tight spaces. The fender bulges are very slight so the
car does not have a muscular look to it. However, it looks like you can still
fit pretty large aftermarket wheel/tires under there.
These are not the stock wheels. They are 18" Konig
wheels which the dealer put on. The side skirt looks just a little tacked on, but it
flows well with the car.
These mirrors are bigger than the Integra, but Acura cites
that they are more aerodynamic and produce less wind noise. They fold forward
and backward of course. In my opinion the
black plastic molding which the side mirror is attached to, should be painted

The optional rear wing is a slightly larger evolution of the
standard wing on the Integra GS-R. Not shown here, but the RSX's rear glass does

Perhaps Acura is using a higher quality glass now which does not cause the
The rear view emotes a larger car feeling. As always, the gas
filler door is on the driver's side.

The rear badging is nicely subtle and the red S gives a nice
contrast. The partial circular scoops below the taillights remind people of the
same scoops on the Integra's front headlights. This is also repeated on the
Since the rear wing is optional, the center mounted brake
light is integrated into the rear deck lid.
This view is similar to the Integra, except that the moonroof
seems to be larger and that there is more hoodline extending backwards. You can
see that gas mileage remains good at 24 City and 31 Highway.
