2000 Honda Integra R 1.8 VTEC from UK and Ireland
A true super car at sensible money
The seats have suede squabs, which have started to wear already. The drivers being the worst, although clearly this seat gets used more than the rest.
This is a car truly for enthusiasts, but what a car for us!
Handles like a dream, point it where you want to go and hold on tight.
Performance is incredible for an "unblown" engine, although it is hard to get all the power down onto the road in the first two gears.
Comfort is not the point of the Type-R, however I find it a pretty comfortable car to drive, although it can be somewhat bumpy on rough roads. You don't get the handling of this car with the firm suspension, I know what I prefer. If it's a toss up for soft suspension or good handling, good handling wins every time!
What can I say about the noise, you have to hear it to know it, and once you've heard it, you'll be hooked too! Fantastic. 8000rpm screaming :-)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
