Default Well, I might not be driving the bonneville much longer...

With all the recent issues I have been having with my car, and the lack of solutions to them, I have been seriously considering the next step in what I want to do. I finally decided today that it is time to get a new(er) car. Just too many issues still outstanding on the bonneville that I don't have the time or money to deal with.

Part of what made this decision was that a car that met my criteria came up for sale and I could not pass it up. I have committed to purchase it and will be getting the loan and the car next week hopefully.

Here are pictures from tonight:







1996 Acura Integra GSR
4 door, 5 spd 4 cyl B18C1 Engine.
108K
adult owned and acura dealer serviced.
Was my friend'* parents car which is part of the reason for getting it. I've know the car for 2 years now. never driven hard. I have been looking for a 5 spd car with 4 doors that is good on gas, and this fits. Still using premium, but getting 35 mpg instead of 16-18

What do you guys think? I'll be trying to liquidate my other vehicles/parts in the near future as well.

It should be awesome. Won't have much for a stereo yet, so I am just going to color match the interior to start until I save up for it.

I'm not buying this thread as far as I can throw it.

Cool lil Teggy, the only one I really like is one that a girl at work has, 97 with a 2003 front end, lowered, tinted, with stock 16" chrome rims, and its ALWAYS clean.
