Which one would you choose?

These are my top listers, and personally It's a close tie between the Teg and the GTA, but what would you lot go for if you had to choose either of these 5 cars?

:homo:

dc5 all day long,

When you say mk1 civic are you on about the ek shape type r
which is from 1996 I think?

If so I'd also love one of them, but teg still takes it imo.

If I could find a clean one :rolleyes:, Integra, no question.

However if I was looking for a Hot hatch and more of an everday car, Cupra

Plus you got access to host of mod to push through that bullit proof VW lump......and, 4Motion transplant 8-)

A clean one?

I'd take the 'TEC wagon, you know I would. I'd have a DC5 if it was to be a daily or a DC2 if I didn't have to put up with it everyday. I'd take a JDM FN2 over both though. Mmm. They're awesome!

Lowish mileage preferable, as with never tracked :rolleyes:

:lol: :lol: :lol: Don't know much about Hondas then? Nor JDM imported cars then. Get any fresh import and it'll be less trouble than any other second hand car you'll find!

I'd love to have an Integra. In White.

Prefer the look of the DC2 though, not as 'fat' looking.

200 + revvy N/A horsepower and great handling.

An interesting and little publicised fact about the 1996-2001 DC2 Type R is that Honda lost money on every single vehicle sold, even though extra dealer markups sometimes made for excessive dealer profit. Honda produced the DC2 Type R for homologation purposes to meet FIA certification of the motor and the chassis changes to make the car more competitive in N-series and World Cup racing. The details required, hand tooling in early versions and finishing the product through the use of various small fabrication shops in Japan made for increased costs in manufacture that could not be made up in the list price of the vehicles. Honda (and Acura in the US) deemed the car important for the marque's image and important for the racing programmes of the era, and the parent company therefore accepted a financial net loss on each vehicle sold


That's the sort of company I'm talking about 8-)

Fully agree with that statement, but if you knew anything about the Integra, you'd realise its the exception the the rule due the the abuse the tend to recieve.
Copes with the abuse better than anything else but they tend to be bought by the hardcore
