    I have a 96 acura integra that i got last August. I completely changed the body (the picture will justify this statement). It has about 186k miles but yet runs great. No lie the clutch feels amazing being that it is still the stock clutch. My mother and I needed a car very fast because I was going to college and room & board was too expensive. (We got the car for 2700)

    Anyway my boyfriend has a 95 white GSX that I LOVE!! I found a 98 violet GSX for sale for 5000 and don't know if I should sell my car and get this one. I know my mother will probably be mad because I have already put so much money into the integra but I want a more powerful car. Since I cannot afford a supra lol:bowdown:

    Here are the pics of my car:

    and the beautiful white GSX

    GSX's are pretty hot. Frankly that integra is pretty eh, i'd take the eclipse over it in a heartbeat. You'll sacrifice a lot of reliability going from Acura to Mitsubishi though.

    If you think 5k is a lot to drop then you might be surprised with maintenance and such.

    How much money have you dropped into the teg?

    well it got hit in the parking lot of william paterson while I was sitting in it waiting for class. So the money from the girl's insurance payed for almost all of the body work. I spent about 600 extra

    I think people don't take you as an enthusiast because of what you did to the acura....

    DOT. You just made a decent entry-level vehicle look like a complete piece of ghetto fabulous shit.

    I hope you didn't pay for those ridiculous tail lights.

    Get the GSX, you'll be too busy paying for maintenance things to rice it out too bad.

    Regardless of all the hate in this thread, if you can truly afford the GSX I'd go with it. How many miles does the GSX have? Maintenace records? How many owners? Clean Title? Rebuilt Transmission or Engine? How are the turbos?

    Also look into insurance costs. I think GSX's require premium gas as well.

    Your integra would have looked decent if you didn't put the obnoxious tail lights on it and the side skirts/rear bumper look pretty tacky too. Simple visual mods usually do best.. Like a set of nice wheels.

    Not worth trading it. You won't get shit for a modified car, especially with 12 years and 186kmi on the clock. Just buy a new one if you want a new one.

    Oh, and I'm gonna need penny pics before I believe that's you.

    I say keep the integra, lose the sideskirts, taillights, and rear bumper. The front is ok. Get some decent looking wheels and do a 1" drop to the front, and maybe a 1/2" to the rear. If you can afford the GSX, get it as well. I've never owned an Eclipse, but 2nd Gen FTW, best looking of all.

    sell the teg, get a different honda with less miles and less shitty bodywork. an eg civic would do you good. just get wheels, and coilovers since you're an enthusiast.

    2nd gen eclipses look cool, but are shit. only good part is the 4g63.

    It's not my style, but it didn't look bad. Hell, at least the paint was all the same color and there was no aluminum wing hanging out in the back.

    If it did look like crap to anyone with a brain, then she's fortunate there are so many people in the world who never use theirs for anything.
