What car to get?

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  What car to get?

Im sad to say...that im getting rid of my RSX :oops: because insurance is kicking my ass. BUT im trading it to get another car a little older... im looking at some Integras. Id love to have the Type-R...but yet again, insurance. I think what im gunna do is get an LS and do and engine swap and re-do everything to make it like a GSR or Type-R...but the insurance company will think its just a LS. I Love Integras so they are my first choice, but maybe you guys have some other ideas?

Yeah but think of this, if you get in an accident and it damages/totals the engine, then you would have to pay for the engine repair right outta your pocket. It doesn't matter if the car is an LS, they are actually very quick little cars but I would take the GSR :thumbs:

If you want an Integra, get a first generation LS.

well see the one that i really am looking at/want is a 97' (i like the body style) and i dont care about an accident and getting a new motor im getting a ls-vtech for 500$ (best freind has it) so thats not a problem, but the GSR is good...but insurance company say its high dollor...so i dont need that right now cause im looking to get a house. But the LS's, stock, have 142hp...thats not bad i can work with that. And they have a good bottom end and im going to drop a GSR head into it and a b16 tranny so ill be quick...plus ill do other stuff and all that.

Thats too bad, its a nice one :ohcrap: How about a 1994 Acura Legend LS 6 Speed w/ the 3.2L VTEC? :hi:

Thanx. I dont know about Legends... it would be pretty nice, but im liking those Teggies. Plus i think the Legends are kinda ugly :ohcrap: Plus... im just making sure... the intake that i got for the rsx, that will only fi tthe k series engines right? or would it fir onto an integra?

sucks to hear... is your rsx a type-s?

posted by  import_nation

nah, its non type s... i started to trade it in this past weekend for the type s...its a 50hp difference, but then again... the insurance thing comes back in even higher so i have to do with just an integra. I have looked around and hey, with any type of Integra its gunna be the same payments, so now my options have opened... GSR may be mine now.

i think insurance will still be expensive if you are choosing Tegras.

240sx is the way to go :thumbs:
