Pros

Turbocharger, performance, etc

Cons

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

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!!!!

My Most Fun Car — This car was as well made as all but my Audi. The Audi was abnormally smooth for it's age. Otherwise, this car was the best. It too was a manual transmission and I think it's one of the better looking cars of the late '90's. Mine was this same color. Acura calls it "Stealth Grey" but I think it's more of an eggplant color. The 1.8L 4cyl was pretty strong for the time and I put in a cold air intake that extended to just inside the front passenger wheel, which gave it a little more punch. Ran this one to about 140,000 miles before selling it.

Pros

clean, low mileage, good price

Cons

automatic!!!

25

Teggy — The biggest problem with my car that i dislike is that it is automatic. The car performs ok for 4 cylinder but could be better. I got a good price on it for only having 50k on it so the cost wasnt bad. The exterior is clean along with the interior. It gets good enough gas mileage and is boring to drive.

Pros

lightweight, loud, fun to drive, lasts forever.

Cons

Not much space inside. not for the tall people.

Solid Fucking Car — First off you gotta be a honda fan that likes to mod. Better off finding a GSR or Type R version of the integra, it puts out a lot more horsepower and torque than the LS. Insurance can be high. It gets amazing gas mileage, if oil os changed a lot and engine is maintained. FIND THE TYPE R.

You can get to 70 mph in second gear :]]]

Cons

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!

Fun, Economical, Everyday Drivable — Really great car. Sounds nice with AEM short Ram intake on it. brake pedal feel was much improved after Brembo slotted rotors were added.
