Nice car. Good to see you dumped the VT seats. Those are slippery.

A lowered VT with the stock lip looks fine.
But if you want to, you can modify one from a late 90's accord, renault laguna (cheap) or a civic coupe between 95 and 99.
actually i didn't dump them.. it's the original seats.. but i have the KS model that is made for scandinavia with special heated seats :)

i'll check out your tips on the lip

I think the console with those heater switches would be awesome for 'cool points' at meets, but it's also more invasive than my current setup.

this model to me is yet another example how the automakers and politicians like to screw the usdm market... nice car tho totally jealous.
Politicians really have nothing to do with what models are sold here, though some government agencies are involved. CARB, NHTSA, EPA and IIHS all play a role.

You also have to remember that when the CRX was introduced in the US, the idea of a 'premium small car' was absurd in this market. Small cars were supposed to be penalty boxes for broke bastards. Honda was just being realistic when making decisions about what models to sell here. Apparently the SiR/VT would have cost in the 20's when a dx was 10k. Though Car & Driver would have loved it, I doubt the sales would have been there. The KS model with heated seats and headlight washers was exclusive to Northern Europe because of their cold weather.

I know there are plenty of other examples where the US doesn't get the great cars, but the fact is that we have more automobile choices than any other country in the world. Usually the cars we complain about wanting are higher-end models of something we do have, which gives all of us that opportunity to import parts and make something unique. :p
