My friend Jeromy is looking into a 99 Acura Integra. It has some mods to
it. Rims, Front kit, side skirts, screwed up tint, old coloration. You
can't tell if it's light blue or silver. The car was originally green. It's
OK but, it's not impressive. It's missing the back body kit. It's an
automatic. The dealer wants $7,300.00. I think it's not worth that much.
What are your views?
I'd give it to him if he included the rear body kit at no cost... it just
looks TERRIBLE without it.
but amazing with it.
BUY BUY BUY BUY, those are the best years they had, cept its a 4 door but no lack in performance, great deal too :thumbs:
Waste of money. 4 door auto, with modifications of unsure quality. Pass.
Shut the hell up Oomba :banghead:
I think you need to shut up. I didnt even say anything about it being a Honda. Dont dismiss my non-baised points, too.
You said unsure quality, recap, Acura is tied in with Honda, so what do we say about quality and reliability, ding ding ding, you guessed it, its superior
run a carfax, that might give some insight on the reliability
That's my point to him as well. Jeromy wants to paint it, put lambo doors on the front and suicide doors on the back, complete the body kit, add neons, and really rice it up.. I keep telling him you don't rice up 4 doors.
I said the modifications were of questionable quality dumb****, learn to read.
Hmmmm....I would try and get him to come down on the price to saaay...$6700 or a little below that. I would have to say that the automatic is a turnoff for me, as well as the 4 door body.
hey hey, that's not necessary
We are talking to Oomba here :wink2:, and you should have clarified because it seemed like you were dissing the quality of Integras and Civics
I dont know how I couldve made that any clearer.
I forgot, 99integra is aloud to flame me, but not the other way around
And when did I say anything about Shivics in this thread? Or any mention of them at all by anyone?
based on my experiences working at a car dealership as a car detailer (and bsing alot with the used car manager) dealer prob only has about 5000-6000 in that car if it was an auction car because used cars at auctions are going pretty high right now and they are tough to get. if it was a trade in he prob only has about 3500-4000 in it because the used car manager always gave about half of what he would be asking for it. IMO id offer about 65-67 if he wanted it.
Screw dealers, use Autotrader, Automart, and Autoextra
Okay yes, I do have a tendancy to read things over to quickly, but why do you post in the asian cars section IF YOU DON'T LIKE ASIAN CARS??
You dipshit all of those are now filled with dealers, look in the newspaper for private party shit :banghead:
Oomba's just an idiot, hondas and acuras are frikkin awesome cars, hes just jealous he doen'st have one and has to drive his moms 70 nissan stationwagon everywhere. i bet of all your posts 95% is flaming or degrading asswipe
And I hope you were talking about Oomba and not me, ay? :ticking:
Well he did say "Oomba's just an idiot...." so i think he was talking about you :screwy: lol.
the integra is sold
I like Asian cars, I just dont like Hondas.
Autotrader, and I think Automart/Autoextra's websites have private party sellers.
Yeah Stem, I'm really jealous of 110 horsepower Hondas :roll:
What about Hondas with 1,510 hp?
If you don't like honda's then you don't like the NSX, Integra, S2000
You're getting very close to being a dumb***, please don't contradict yourself. Just leave him alone.
Lol, using that against me eh :wink2:
Yup, before this thread goes into an exponential decay.
lol 99teg you just automatically attack Oomba the one time he was just throwing his :2cents: in. And why does everyone here worship Honda. Plz stop acting like Hondas are God's gift to the car industry in an arrogant fashion. I like S2k's just as much as anyone here so plz don't flame me.
Hey, he is a duche bag and when ever he states his :2cents: then it becomes ignorant and retarded
I think we should calm this thread down a little, too :wink2:
Good luck :roll: Oomba's still here :wink2:
As I said...calm it down mate, both of you :thumbs:
I aint even sayin shit. 99integra brought arguments in here for no reason
How bout you go back to your little forum :thumbs:
i can't believe i'm saying this :ticking: but i'm in agreeance with Oomba a four door auto isn't really the best car if he's looking for something sporty or to tune and cars with mods done by previous owners are usually a good sign that the previous owner was probably hard on the car. There are plenty of other cars out there, i'd tell your friend to hold off for something he's completely comfortable with. Don't get it if he's questioning the worth from the beginning
Ugh, do I really need to say this, automatics are good for quick launches if you are looking at drag racing, and manuels are good for just about anything cept in my opinion is good for driving around town and racing. You tell me, what is wrong with a 4 door? Mine was, and it was faster than a lot of them out there
what do most people with autos always ask for advice on? the cost of converting an auto to manual. And I didn't say that four door cars suck or anything but IMO coupes are sportier looking. You are right though, most of the four doors did have a little more power to make up for the extra weight
i'd go with the runnin' gear from a 4dour and drop it into a 2dour coupe,
lol. my engine and gearbox are from a 4dour excel and it offers about 5hp
more stock along with a longer gear ratio (i got the diff to) and a 2way
4dours and station wagons are the best things to hype shit from!
Autos are only good right at launch. After that manuals take it
Good point, you should tell all the Formula 1 teams that :thumbs:
Besides the fact that those are really expensive auto transmissions ment for racing, they arent as much fun to use. No stock auto trans is going to out-shift a manual.
true, and for most imports, it'll stay true. But for many domestics (and
some imports) modding the automatic is as easy and inexpensive as changing
When you do the mods in a typical shift kit (like those sold by B&M, TCI, or Art Carr), the internal pressures are changed, as well as teh timing of th eshifts. By increasing pressures, you speed up the shifts to nearly instantaneaously, and the internal clutches and bands grip tighter with no slippage, delivering as much power through the trans as a manual does. Combined with the torque multiplication of a torque converter, you can get outstanding launches AND get faster shifts than a manual, as well as never having to let of fthe gas or lose power to the wheels during a shift.
THios makes a good modded automatic an excellent choice not only for drag racing, but for corner carving, as you can choose teh gear yourself, shift when you want to, without haivng to slip the clutch, miss a shift, and use left foot braking to your advantage.
It always amazes me that so many people will go on and on about the potential of a car for moddig the engine or suspension/brakes, but think the transmission can only be the way it came stock. They'll add a $300 ignition controller and $200 air filter setup, but won't think to spend $50-100 on a shift kit that would dramatically improve performance.
a riced up automatic......not thinkin it's worth it...whats under the hood?
YET AGAIN! Chris teaches me something else about cars! yay! thanks Mr.
i didn't know that shit like that was possible with an auto trans, thanks for explaining it.
my opinions is its not worth it, but if he wants it, then get it. i'd rather just get a 4 door gsr if it comes to 4 door integras.
She said its gone now, no need to reply anymore, arguements could somehow break out cause or differing 'opinions'
my bad...didnt really read all the way...just read the first couple of replys.
Sorry, i dont mean to be rude. I know it seems that way, i thought it'd maybe help others from maybe wasting their time or something else starting (enough wars around here already).
