How about a VDub series?
Christopher LikeaBoss Reber Dec 13, 2012
A supercar concept series would even be cool. I'd love to see an article on the Volkswagen nardo
Serge Pankratov Dec 13, 2012

Aaron Crisp Dec 13, 2012

Tyler Tarbox Dec 13, 2012
So far part 2 has been rice icons. Except maybe not the Integra
Sivert Grande Dec 13, 2012
@Christpher Agreed
Zach Gathercole Dec 13, 2012

Christopher LikeaBoss Reber Dec 13, 2012
A euro tuning icons series would be nice
Christopher LikeaBoss Reber Dec 13, 2012
Besides the riced out pictures, I really like this series. I want to see an article on the 3000gt or sentra ser spec v

Nvrm found the skyline article.
Brian Johnston Dec 13, 2012
This is better than the last two in this series but not on my list of import ricers. How about a skyline article
Matt Piccolo Dec 13, 2012

Rice!!! Lol but there's nothing wrong with that
Coleman DuCharme Dec 14, 2012
You can't say something is crappy until you get a better look. I'm not a fan of this build myself, but I'm not gonna call it crappy based on one picture.
Devin Babyn Dec 14, 2012
I have such a love hate for this car. 2nd gens are damn ugly. 3rd gens have one of my most hated front ends of all time. If it was RWD I could get over it but since it isn't I just can't get past those issues
Frederick Perez Dec 13, 2012
Front end conversion
Tyler Tarbox Dec 13, 2012
It's just crappy build quality from whatever tuner did this one.
Matt Piccolo Dec 13, 2012
Yea what is up with that? I've never seen that before?
Patrick Schalk Dec 13, 2012
That gap looks pretty bad
Byakka Hirakawa Dec 13, 2012
Only thing i dont like about these is the space around the front bumper, even mind dose that And the motors r really tightly in there Unless u wanna work on the tranny,
Justin Routh Dec 13, 2012
Hey look carbuzz finally got the message. These pics arent too bad today
Matt Piccolo Dec 13, 2012
First good car I this series! Looks good minus the stickers
William Downs Dec 13, 2012
Your not kidding Matt, shits rediculious
Matt Sutton Dec 13, 2012
I dont know about anywhere else, but here in south jersey there are crappy integras everywhere. I see at least 10 daily.
David Guerrero Dec 13, 2012
Only problem here are the decal choice
Nick Schnee Dec 13, 2012
Couldn't agree more.
Carlos Eduardo Gaviria Dec 13, 2012
This ones are actually not as bad as the pictures they used for the celicas and the eclipses
Taylor Garry Dec 13, 2012
Here we go again

Alex Medvedev Dec 15, 2012
Alright
Kaine Bingham Dec 14, 2012
It'll look better with fluorescent pink tribal stickers.. Oh and those ones that go on the door it goes faster.
Coleman DuCharme Dec 14, 2012
Thankfully it doesn't have a flimsy fiberglass kit.
Theo Hubbard Dec 14, 2012
Tastefully done
Zach Gathercole Dec 13, 2012

Or because they still need grip at the rear, doesn't matter of its fwd, a big problem fwd face is sudden over steer of the rear end under breaking and and turns after a heavy breaking zone the back becomes lighter then the front and becomes unstable,thats why racing teams will put larger rear tires or spoilers on fwd cars depending on the series rules
Coleman DuCharme Dec 14, 2012
It's front wheel drive, and I'm sitting here wondering why the rear tires are so big. Unless they did some kind of drivetrain conversion..
Victor Pitts Dec 13, 2012
Much better! I love the Type-Rs
Lou Guerrero Dec 13, 2012
That's what I'm talkin about. Race em.
Alex Medvedev Dec 15, 2012
Clean
Author Norman R. Colson Dec 14, 2012
Green rims, white body ewwww
Thomas Lepage Dec 14, 2012
My favourite body style of the Integra. Love how they matched the rims and the roll cage on this one. Clean.
Frederick Perez Dec 13, 2012
Rectangle lights=jdm
Serge Pankratov Dec 13, 2012
Wow pretty clean id say. Spoon sticker is unnesessary imo.
David Hicks Dec 13, 2012
CE28 wheels with Spoon brakes... Ah FIT
William Downs Dec 13, 2012
Fwd cars benefit from a rear spoiler, down force is down force, keeps the back end in check on fwd cars... there not just for rwd cars
Miguel Jimenez Dec 13, 2012
The spoiler is useful? It's FWD!
Braxton Omgbased Booker Dec 13, 2012
Clean as hell
Jon Ashley Dec 13, 2012
the honda version is definitely my favorite. something about those rectangle headlights with the grille.
Byakka Hirakawa Dec 13, 2012
I c alot of them with multi colored wheels aroud here Iono wat the deal is, mines not like that Corse its still runnin on steelys, lmao
Puneet Dass Dec 13, 2012
I saw a type r very similar to this the other day. Even the green wheels even. Very few of these around now in my country
Matt Piccolo Dec 13, 2012
Not liking the spoiler, but other wise it looks great
Drew Humphrey Dec 13, 2012
The spoiler is clearly quite useful
Markpaul Chohan Dec 13, 2012
Take the spoiler off and you got a nice car
Tyler Tarbox Dec 13, 2012
This one's not terrible
Description: The second generation introduced Honda's F1-derived VTEC variable valve timing technology. This was not only the first Integra with the technology, but also the first Honda to use it. This was th...

Serge Pankratov Dec 13, 2012
True that. AND they got a pretty good punch when you stomp on that accelerator, for a four banger. Id say better than most engines under 2.0 liters
Thomas Lepage Dec 13, 2012
B18 motors made this car IMO.. Easy to maintain, cheap parts and is still a good little motor today.
Byakka Hirakawa Dec 13, 2012
Honestly Ive drivin a vtec and mines a non vtec, and i gotta say, i like the non vtec better All around power

You gotta love that high red line.
Miguel Jimenez Dec 14, 2012
@Michael so you're the guy who drove his Veyron into the lake.
Michael Montefusco Dec 13, 2012
Yeah. My last six veyrons got low in blinker fluid so I had to throw them away.
Byakka Hirakawa Dec 13, 2012
Hate it when i get low on blinker fluid
Braxton Omgbased Booker Dec 13, 2012
Tein coils FTW!
Michael Montefusco Dec 13, 2012

Who needs technology! Pfft!
Lou Guerrero Dec 13, 2012
I think people make lots of cars handle worse for the sake of stance but the ITR is especially prone to upsetting the balance.
Description: Tuners still worked with these cars, and as we mentioned, Car and Driver still praised it in stock form. But the car was no longer the icon it had been when it was powered by B-series engines, and it ...
