Not Happy Getting a new motor. You lads probably won't be impressed



Putting a deposit down on this badboy tomorrow.

Black Honda Integra DC5 for sale in Dublin : €7,200 - DoneDeal.ie

I looked around for alfas in my price range but i just couldn't live with the depreciation on a 6 grand alfa.

You'll be glad to hear that there still will be an alfa on the drive. The missus is on the lookout for a 147 at the moment so i'll still be around here and driving an alfa 40 percent of the time. Hope you all aren't too ****ed off lads.

hope you can live with a revvy four pot after the V6 dude... I'd say it'll be liveable

but am I just thinking in alfa money or is it a bit steep for a '01 with that mileage? looks the nuts though and those recaro's look mint.

Nice one Baz, that car will keep you smiling. Comfy enough and plenty fast. Stick it in 6th and you will be suprised how economical it will be.

Dont forget abiut your local Honda parts supplier

No need for that!

I suppose it's stripped down. It's the "type r".

As for the price. Thats the money they are making believe it or not, also black ones command a higher price than the awfull white. I am not paying 7 grand either. I decent bit less. The difference in price betweek japanese cars and Alfas is huge. I have always wanted an integra tbh and you all know i get bored of cars very quickly so it will probably be for sale in 6 months.

No Red Bulls tonight... unless some vodka is being thrown into them thanks to the misery my 5 pot is giving me
seriously though, good luck with the car but i think a Fiat Coupe Turbo would have been a bit cooler

Cheers man. I never liked the fiat coupes and tbh the integra is the perfect mix of sport and practicallity for me. The back seats are big enough and i am ordering one of these for the little lad :
