Summary:

Animal

Faults:

The VTEC was giving trouble kicking in, but this turned out to be because it became low on oil. It seems excessively using VTEC when the car is not fully warmed up, burns a hell of a lot of oil.

Water leaks into the boot from rear light clusters.

Brake fluid warning light/hand brake light comes on when I dog the engine; must be bad connection in fluid reservoir.

General Comments:

Considering my previous car, this was always going to feel like a bullet.

I couldn't be happier than at around 6000rpm when the VTEC kicks in. There's an induction kit as well, so the VTEC wail is even more pronounced. And boy does the Integra move.

Only bad points are high cruising RPM; it could use a 6th gear.

Noisy ride when cruising, & poor fuel consumption due to high RPM.

Handles great.

Not sure about the older models, but I have a 96 integra type r (b18C engine) and vtec doesn't even engage until the oil is up to temperature, yes the car will rev past 6000 rpm, but it doesn't change cam profiles. as I said not sure about the older models, but on the newer ones it's a safety feature to protect the engine.

I have 93 Integra si vtec and with an ACT clutch kit, a skunk2 intake and an AEM filter. My brother has a standard ITR b18c. Most powerful atmospheric cars ever.

But rotary engines turbocharged is just something else.

Yes something else... the turbo rotary engines need rebuilding every 60000 miles and take a specialist to get it rebalanced costing a fortune! You don't have to rebuild a Honda engine unless it's highly mistreated.

Summary:

I'm loving it! The low rider!

Faults:

Absolutely nothing!

General Comments:

The best car I ever bought from a japanese import dealer.

This car is seriously quick and handles like it's on rails.

The chassis is so good that no matter what you do this car will not broadside, once using Pirelli P7000.

1994 Honda Integra GSR 1.8 vtec petrol

Comfort marks 6 / 10
Dealer Service marks 4 / 10

Faults:

Aircon.

Front and rear bumper not properly assembled.

Some plastic parts from cabin fell out after the car is 1 year old.

General Comments:

Overall, quite a good semi-high performance car but its cabin design and tailights looks bit too dull for a car of this class. Also with additional space in the cabin especially in the rear, it will be a better car than now!
