    Great car before it was heavily modded! No one is going to buy it for that much money with that many miles at that age in this economy full of layoffs happening! His mods are great but always depreciates a car knowing the fact that takes away from the life duration of that vehicle vs what it was stock! He’s better off keeping it or selling it at a much lower cost! 🥱

    Im Sure this has been discussed here but this Integra follow up’s big problem was it’s lack of rear trailing links resulting in excessive negative camber and a switch to front MacPhersons which some do better than others.

  • Wolfwagen The Alpha Numeric model system used to be good and had some consistency either to the size of the vehicle or engine. Now its just gobbly gook that doesn't make any sense. Lincoln was the worst since all their vehicles looked the same and all started with MK.
