    So, 5 months ago I sold my EG hatch if some of you remember. I ended up spending those 5 months saving my money up and managed to pick this up today. It's a 1996 Acura Integra LS, 153,xxx miles, virgin (as far as I know, there are no mods), tan interior, black exterior, few dings and dents that don't bother me, runs great and it's quick, everything works, and it got pretty good gas mileage on the trip home. I don't have many pictures, because the weather and sun haven't given me much light/clear skies. Tomorrow if it's nice out, I'll take a shitload of pictures, but I'll stop boring you with text. Pics.

    January 22, 2012 - The day I went to look at it.

    She's a tad rough on the outside, and needs a bit of a tune-up to be perfect, but she's my new daily and I love it.

    Nah, i got it at a lower price without them



    Thanks.

    Yeah, doesnt seem to be any rust. Friday im gonna head over to my girlfriend's garage and jack the car up to check the underside. and i picked it up for $1800.

    Haha thanks. And at the moment, the only plans are a tune-up (plugs, wires, cap and rotor), oil change, air and oil filter change, maybe drain and refill the coolant, and possibly a tranny flush and refill. The fluid might be burnt, I have to check it. Then after that, its pretty much just saving for some new rims and stereo and whatever else I think of. I'm not going to touch the engine except for cleaning and maintaining it since its auto. Could use a good run of simple green if I have any laying around. I may want to do body work in the near future too just to clear some of the dents. Also, probably the first thing I do this weekend is I want to strip the hood and repaint it. Its fading and looks ugly.

    Yeah, it runs real nice. The shifting is a tad rough between 1st through 2nd if you don't step on it lol





    The bay is horrid. I need to shine her up first, and it needs a valve cover gasket I believe lol. I'm gonna go at it with a rag tomorrow.

    Also, the hour and a half it took to get home sucked without a stereo. Unfortunately he couldn't find the factory radio.

    Mine works perfectly, and i'm starting to think it's not a special edition lol. It does't have the badge on the back and the manuals (Yes, it had the manual and warranty book still in the glove box) only said "Acura Integra" on it, so idk. The only difference between the LS and the special edition is that the SE had leather seats, 15" alloy wheels, and a rear spoiler which is what's on my car now, so maybe it's just an LS, idk.
    But yeah, it's running a B18B1
    Thanks man, I like it too haha.

    Nice pick up! :thumbs up

    Nothing wrong with good ole maintenance and no modifications. That's where I'm at with my car right now though I do still have a small desire to modify it lol.
