I would go with the Honda as well, mostly because it is going to be a better built car, chaning the transmission takes about 5-7 hours and is not hard, it would take alot less time if you had a lift of course but it's a tiny transmission, I've done two of them and there is nothing weird that you curse at, just unbolts and bolts back in.
Off the top of my head for the CRX I don't know the gear ratio, but you could put a transmission with better ratios in and improve your gas mileage that way, for that sporty feel you would have to down shift of course, but you have that option.
