Hey im loking ito buying a new car(but still keeping my G2) I have narrowed the choices down to these:
1.Audi S4
2.Audi A4 1.8T
3.Honda S2000
4.Lexus IS300
5.Acura RSX Type S
6.BMW 330xi Sedan

The RSX is the cheapest one(and the only one I can finance instead of lease) and plus I will be able to stay in the Integra family. Now for my actual question: I was wondering if there were any turbo kits out for production yet(not prototypes)? Or do you guys know of anywhere to get better internals so maybe I could go all motor instead?
Thanks

Mmmmmmmmm... S4 :)

Like the S2000 a lot to. However, it seems like you are being wise and thinking of putting your money to the best use (buying, rather than leasing), so go with the RSX. I'm sure you will be happy with the car. I do not currently know of any turbo kits, however, IM sure its just a matter of time.

How is it that the WRX is not in your list? It will basically smoke every car on your list. Take it for a test drive. You will be amazed. It is basically the car I wanted before I bought my GS-R (7K cheaper, love my GS-R). I was one of the biggest WRX advocates before I bought my Teg. And like I said, Im not dissapointed in the least that I bought my Teg, but put opinions aside, minus the 6 speed and the Leather, the WRX will smoke the RSXS (WRX 0-60 in 5.5). I do love the RSX
, but if it was me I would be a WRX owner in a sec. oNCE AGAIN I LOVE MY TEG AND I AM NOT LOOKING BACK!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS TEAM INTEGRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome list! Except the new A4 is not fast enough (unless you get an upgraded engine) or as nice looking (body) as last years model. Think the other models may handle better too (less body roll).

I would say S2000 or the WRX like 8ball917 mentioned, but.... leasing sucks. Better to own an RSX-S than rent an S2000. That's just my $.02 anyways.

Greddy is supposedly coming out with a turbo kit quite soon, I love my type s but it is true for a bit more money you can get a WRX. The WRX is a freakin monster! If you want the luxury stuff like leather, climate control, and nice stuff go with RSX, if you want bare bones screaming HP and performance go with the WRX.

OH MY GOD! I totally forgot about the WRX, and I saw a phat white one yesterday and was like damn...I forgot about that car. Im seriously going to consider that one, seeing that it is only $24,000. The only thing is that I really wanted a luxury car.(i know, the rsx isnt fully luxury, but its close and the wrx is no where near luxury) I dont want to lease because I cant see paying all that money and then having nothing to show for it. And I dont like the new A4, I like the old bodystyle too. The new ones look too much like the A6.

i saw the first turboed rsx on the east coast that speedline brought out not too long ago and that sh*t was pretty bad. after seeing that i was very close myself to getting an rsx until i found my gsr.i do not regret getting this one cuz its my baby but if you get an rsx and turbo it you'll be sitting pretty!

About the ITR...I love that car more than anything, but I want luxury, and as we all know the Type R is a straight up race car. I wont be getting the car until probably April/May because I want to wait for the winter to end before I get it. So I have a few months left to decide. So if that RSX turbo comes out by that time, then ill get it.

they coming out with a new s4 in a yr, so wait for that...s200 is crazy with the finance and lease charges. a 330 sedan is kinda lame unless u want the coupe, and then u looking at over 38k out the door, the 1.8 is a good car, might have to hop it up again..the lexus IS is hot..and the rsx is another small car..make ur decision
