May your 2nd generation CRX live long and prosper! I own a 1987 CRX-DX
which recently passed 160,000 miles: they are great little cars and
fun to drive.
There are several sources of aftermarket carpet sets for your 1991 CRX
Si. These sets are molded to the proper shape and overall size, but
you will have to do some final fitting and trimming.
Automotive accessory retailer J.C. Whitney sells the following carpet

I have not been able to find a brand-to-brand comparison of auto
carpet sets, but here is one car owner's review of an ACS carpet set
he installed his 1990 Nissan Maxima:

Another major manufacturer of molded auto carpets is:
Auto Custom Carpets
The World's Leading Manufacturer of Automotive Carpet
From what I have seen, ACC appears to have the most complete
information online that explains pile types, specifications, and
Molded Floor Carpets
ACC's downloadable PDF catalog
(http://www.accmats.com/pdf/ACC%20Catalog.pdf) lists a complete carpet
set for 1988-90 Honda CRXs (catalog item # 52836), but it does not
specifically mention 1991 CRXs. However, you can call ACC at
1-800-633-2358 to confirm that this set will fit your car.

CRXs in general, I recommend the "CRX Resource" Web site. It was
recently updated, so there is still some overlap between the old and
You will need to register (for free) to get into the CRX Resource

anything, except for the fact that everyone *loves* their CRX. ;-)

When you consider the general population of car owners, how few of us
ever need to replace our carpets? And if we do, the shop simply takes
care of it and bills us. There's just not very much public demand for
this type of DIY information.
From what I saw, ACS looked like the most popular brand of
after-market carpet sets. Photos of their products were being used on
several web sites, and they distribute to large retailers.
Any time you want to know more about your Si, try the CRX Resource
forum. Please post in Google Answers, too, even though I don't have an
Si (not yet, anyway).
The new BMW Mini Cooper (http://www.mini.com) looks pretty tempting,
though: I think my old CRX is starting to get jealous.
