Gianni's 2005 DC5 MM Type-S Build & Showoff

Here I am to introduce to you a new member of the family.
My 2005 Magnesium Metallic Acura RSX Type-S!
She has 103,000km's on her and is in pretty good condition.

During the course of ownership, I will update the thread to show my progress throughout the build and progression as my Type-S transforms from stock to ROCKET.

In the meantime......Here are some pics when i picked her up....
