Pros

Lots of power, smoked the older M3's no problem.

Cons

Low end, not alot of power, no matter what you do. It is still a 4 cynlinder.

Great Car. — Great gas mileage, especially when I lived in the City back then. Must be a stick, any 4 cylinder vechiles in auto tranny is terrible. In general rule of thumb stick you have more control on the car than auto. Auto basically the car controls you. In the snow, forget it, auto tranny is the worst depending what you drive. On a little coupe like that, especially at 17, snow or not doesnt matter. LOL Invested over 10k on his car and boosted engine to 368hp with all custom engine work.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Turbocharger, performance, etc

Cons

Paint job needed, Shock going out, and in need of a stage 3 clutch....

85

Very Fast Fun Car.... — Well the car is super fast...It has a t304e turbocharger cranking out 10psi boosting the b18c1 to over 250whp....It does need a few new parts such as a rear shock and a new clutch (stock still not slipping but upgrade to a stage 3 very soon) and it is in bad need of a paint job. The interior is 9/10 very clean. I got about 32mpg before the turbo so it most likely will be a bit less due to my heavy right foot...the car is very fun to drive and when vtec kicks its awesome!!!!

Quick,fun, And Attractive — Great Car.. Really reiable. Costs basically nothing to drive if they have been maintained well. A really common car. The reliability proves why they are so common. Ive put 40000 KM on it since ive owned it.. not one problem. Highly recommened for a first sports car. Quick, economical, a blast to drive, and looks really clean with some rims

Cons

shifting is very harsh

My Only Child Xd — For the most part she's run really well, I've had to pre-emptively replace alot of parts, for an 11 year old car only having one minor part break on me is really not too bad!

What A Two Door Sport Hatchback Should Be! — Acura got the recipe near perfect with the Integra! It's unfortunate they made the corporate decision to drop two door vehicles from the line up and focus on sport utility vehicles. Their current design philosophy has polarized customers. For the premium price, Acura has not distanced itself perceptually from Honda as well as Lexus did from Toyota.

97 Integra — I bought the car to daily drive. I get about 30 MPG. It may lack some power but is a blast to drive around. I havnt spend much on maintenance at least nothing other than oil changes. The outside of the car looks pretty good that why I bought it. The interior is small is the only down side
