1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSReview
Erica writes:

Still Working On It — ROXY, as I call her, is (ATM) an Eclipse GS. Euro taillights, nice rims, blitz sideskirts, and BMX front bumper. Tinted rear windows. Soon, she's gonna have new tail lights, BMX side skirts, and a blitz rear bumper. She's also getting a turbo and a manual transmission, because she's an automatic right now. (I know, it's scandalous!) She just got some very nice MTX speakers,

Pros: VERY customizable,

Cons: Automatic, long first gear

Would Buy Ranked 1994 Acura Integra GS-R Coupe FWD better.
"A harder to find and more rare car available now days. Also love the VTEC b18 motor and the potential of the motor with upgrades and aftermarket parts. My Integra had a stock I4 1.8VTECH B18 motor with just an aftermarket Air intake, short shift kit, headers and exhaust and still felt just as fast as my eclipse with its 2.0 DOHC AEM cold air intake for alot more colder Air , Greddy Exhaust and headers for power/torque and HP, lowered Coilovers and Full body kit for downforce/handling, 17in Rims with wider low profile tires for grip/turning, Short shifter trans gear kit for tighter/ faster/ better shifting and the older Integra may have been faster off the line I believe but the eclipse wouldve probably took it on the top end and more than likely on the track too bc of the aftermarket upgrades for the handling, grip and downforce. The Integra had a more intense harder pull especially when the VTech kicked in that made it feel more like a racing import and made it alot funner to drive it was louder also still sounded good but the eclipse with its Greddy Exhaust tip had a deep powerful and overall better sound that I loved and it had a nice sleek badass low to the ground import look with the perfect body kit and paint job with blue neons underneath and 10% tints that made it look amazing and one of a kind for sure. Love both cars would buy the Integra mainly bc I didnt get to upgrade it like the eclipse. "
