My Acura — The car gets great gas mpg. The car is manual which i wanted for my performance needs. The maintenance on the car is slim to once every 4 months. The car is fun cause i can control what gear i want to be in, which makes it easier to powerslide.

5 Of 5 Stars — excellent vehicle, great performance and handling, no engine trouble so far, except for the ABS module which sometimes has a mind of its own. cost of ownership is minimal, except of the routine tune ups, great styling, and a great race machine

Good Reliable Car — good car, easy to sup up. Liked it a lot. Stock performance isn't amazing but thats easy to fix. Fun to drive. Cost of ownership is barely anything. The appearance isn't the greatest but hey...when you drive by the fuel pumps your laughing.

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

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.

This Is A Fun Car — Okay acceleration with pretty good bakes and good handling. The build quality was good. Not too many rattles or anything. The car was a bit pricey for me when I bought it but wish I still had the car. It got good gas mileage and maintenance was low. This car was really fun to drive and I really put it through some hard driving conditions.

Integra — I liked it. It was a fun car to drive, easy to maintain, cheap to repair and great to look at. The automatic transmission was pretty wack though. It shifted between gears randomly and it was kinda slow. The back seat was really small, but the trunk was massive. Sound system was great, no complaints really.

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!!!!
