HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :)~
Finally can get a MANUAL, with A/C and is a gen3 too! First of all, i need to thank TimmahR1 for his Car Buying Tech article! I've done my research roughly and finally spotted a pretty nice gen3.

Acura Integra 99 SE BLACK (Canadian Model: RS)
Kilometers: 89500km
Cost asked: 12499$CAD
I was able to lowered it to 11350$CAD (~ 8670$USD) (also asked him to sale it for 9000$ and i pay him the rest in cash, so i save another 200$ in tax) So in total, i lowered it about 1300$, 10% off! :)

Tested drive the car, engine was so quiet, it shift smoothly with no grid what-so-ever! Interior is clean, just like new. Exterior, well, the paint is faded a little, due to the owner parking outside everyday for 4 years, but i think some waxing will fix that.

Some scratches at the front bumper, was caused by a blown tire from a 16 wheelers... not too bad, i think it can be recover with some slight sanding and polishing compound. And a tiny spot of rust (3mm x 3mm, caused by chiped paint i think) at the rear left quarter panel. Which should be able to fix with little wet sanding and touch up paint too.

Overall, i am quite happy with the buy, right now i am getting the insurence up and a cheque for thursday... not to mention i have an exam on Wednesday! Arrg... everything is craming up at the same time.

Pictures will be available probably friday. :D~
Just wanna share my excitement hehe...

Update: I can officially change my icon to g3 now. :)
As promis, here is some pics! Just took it few minutes ago!
See album here.

Congrats. Good luck with her. Be sure to post pictures for us. What happens to your G2?
Nothing happened to my g2, kind a getting sick of the squeeking noise of the interior, loud engine noise, automatic, no A/C, rust starting to appear (the damn garage just gave it a cheap paint before i bought it i think).

My sister is gonna drive it when she gets her liscen this summer, is an automatic so good for her. Plus i tune up the car from 375km/tank (when i originally got it) to 480km/tank.

Is just that i need something better hehe... and i think i need A/C! I can't stand the damn summer heat! :) So there will be a g2 & g3 for me to take care of this summer. (gonna fix the hatch rust this summer on g2)

Peace~! *i am just so damn exciting right now*

Doubt she will ever join? She is not a car lover like me haha... and yes, one of the main reason i switch is because of A/C! :)
