Yea the seats don't EXACTLY match, but they are TONS more supportive than the stock Acura seats. Very comfortable. As far as the intake, yea it is weird.

Yea it'* fast for a little guy compared to what i drive, it really sounds fantastic at 6200 RPM when the cam profiles change. All the way up to the 8200 RPM redline. Boy those little honda'* really scream. Oh and yes i know the 18'* are tough, but people have dynoed those stock axles to 400+ WHP on stock axles repeatedly and they can take the abuse. But believe me he drive it hard plenty. His brother has a 350z also, and his mom drives a Lexus RX330. Sister'* got an ML430 (hand me down from mom). There'* also a 1997 Altima beater, and a 94/5 talon TSI project car, fully built and turbo'd. His car should be really quick soon, turbo setup is hopefully on it'* way this summer.

Not really my kind of car but it looks pretty good & clean. Not crazy about the seats and I think that front grill is looking alittle bare IMO; almost like it needs and Acura badge in the middle.

Haro, With 18s its slower than us by far, probably 15.3 15.4

but with normal tires and Intake, headers and exhaust its as fast. 14.5 ( with a good driver)
