The import tuner market will slowly over time start to realize there is no market for used cars, and they de-value them by modding.

It'* only a matter of time before some of them start to wise up.

...that usually happens when the 20'* come around. By that time, there are a whole new generation of ricers ready to take the torch

only indirectly. its more about thew eight reduction than adding horsepower. increasing the lbs to torque ratio, yo.


bc that fake carbon fiber gas cap is going to make a huge difference. even if it were real carbon fiber, how much weight would that save? not enough to make up for the 2 amps and the sub . . .

Cute little mirrors on it

I bet that monster cat fish of a front grill seriously reduces his slip stream (which was supposed to be enhanced by the mousy side mirrors)

WIN

That'* actually a pretty nice car..

It looks pretty cleanly done except the body kit.

I hate to admit it but I'm a sucker for a cleanly done Honda/Acura.




and.. the DC2 Type R..



there were some type r'* that were on the us marketin 99/00.. so.. they're really not impossible to come by, but very rare.
