Summary:

The car is quick, strong and beautiful

Faults:

The air condition was not work, was disconnected, the worst was to put the gas on the air condition because it's expensive.

General Comments:

Guys, nobody knows what really this car can do before try it.

And I say that because I always heard that the car is fast and strong, but I only know what they really mean when I try it.

The first time I drove my "Little Toy", I came out with all my body shaking.

I could not resist and in the same hour I made the deal.

It was the best thing I ever done.

I own the car for 2 years and sometimes I still came out shaking.

I really advise to those who have one, to put a air induction kit and enjoy the beautiful noise and the power improvement, than go to the street and play with Golf G60, Saxo, 106, BMW like I have done, they won't believe what happened.

When you get to 5,500 rpm it's like you have release the devil and you can feel all the power in your hands it's like you have all 150 hp inside you, it's just beautiful.

I just love my car, and I will keep him.

Summary:

Truly the power of dreams..

Faults:

Very little rust marks on the sunroof, but nowhere else.

O2 sensors blew due to stainless manifold install.

General Comments:

The real spots car entry level. I've driven several cars with more power than my Rex and none of them putted such big a smile on my face.

Many of them have been trashed, so make a wise buy. I've purchased mine after looking to eleven Rex's. My dad tried her, and bought one for him and mum.

Beautiful lines, superb handling, very rewarding drive. The engine is stunning, I advise to install an air induction kit, makes the vtec sound glorious, and when it goes, it GOES!

Huge aftermarket parts, i've seen tuned cars doing the quarter mile in 11 seconds.

I would also like to point out that the mclaren F1 is not street legal in very few areas. Thus it is not a practical vehicle for anyone, but a millionaire or a collector. So it is no comparison to the CRX. Personally I am not impressed by 1/4 mile times. If you want to race me with your mclaren I will be happy to do so. Please don't cry when I beat you with a motorbike I bought for 300 bucks on the way to meet you.
