Why thank you, the factory pearl paint only came on 90-91 crx dxs, I think the two colors made for the US market were torino red and celestial blue...

Anyway, good luck looking for the vx rims, I love mine, but you can use insight LRR tires on the HX rims, if you please.

No lie about the vx's the are hard to come by. I may just get the HF rims. I can find those for about $100 a set. Do you have a link that I can read up on the LRR tires?

Not the HF rims Jack, go for the HX with the Insight rubber. It is discussed here:

I got mine on Ebay for $230 and drove an 8 hours RT to pick them up. They were worth it for me. They went cheaper than normal because they were for local pickup only.

Mod's will help with the mpg. But its not the total package. Slowing down a bit more and load driving the hills with a FAS on the down side will help alot.

I dont load drive like krousdb or xcel anymore. But I do load drive. I have hills in my daily drive. I use to load drive them to the point that i would let them scrub 10 mph or better off my mph. Not anymore, maybe let them take 5 mph then top the climb and pull a 1 mile FAS.

Another thing that helps is bleeding on slight down hill runs. I have places on my drive where its ever so slightly down hill. I can ever so lightly let out of the gas and watch my speed increase and my mpg go way up on the real time readout in my ScanGauge. I can be doing 65 mph going down the hwy hit one of these areas and be at 70 mph and see a steady 60 mpg on my SG.

Hills can be intresting in the FE game. i would much rather drive them than ubber flat land. Where P&G and or bleeding are your only options to improve mpg. There just flat boring options and not worth my time or effort.

Based on what you have just described, I would say that you drive exactly the way that I drive. I don't loose more than 5 MPH while climbing hills and un slight downhills I also bach off to see the FE skyrocket. On the steeper downhills I FAS. Hills are your friend for sure.

Wayne's driving is much more extreme than mine which is exactly why he will always post better numbers than I will. I can live with that.
