  1. hmm...no picture.<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. yea can you saw r!ce. i think they should just bring the stupied type-r over.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. true people have different tastes. some people have poor taste. but then again that's my opinion right.

    ANYHOW...in socal quite a few of the honda dealers started offering this instead

    AEM Fuel rail (i dont see the point of this one since its not making 300+ hp)
    coilovers i think
    an intake and exhaust
    and better wheels 17'
    i think a better spoiler

    again this is only in socal, not nationally done, but i think that's better than this.
     
  4. The brakes and suspension are a pretty great way to get faster times at an autox, where decelerating can help you as much as accelerating. I bet this is a fast car around the cones. I dont like the spoiler and such either, but this will definitely have an advantage around the autox.<!-- Signature -->

  7. its is just an appearance upgrade. to me this car is not worth the money.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. I'd rather get the 03 tiburon.

  10. why do you even bring up the mustang. its still overpriced. you can do better modifications yourself for less money i bet. besides i can barely see any visual enhancement that appears really that much better. i'd rather spend it on real performance not a bunch of plastic. the only thing worth keeping is the wheels.
     
  11. Performance Upgrade? more like.....

    ... Appearacne up grade, Sill over priced and id rather Keep my $14k 97 GST over this. This a nice rip from the Celica ACTION package that made the car slower <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">.

  16. This is a sad excuse for an upgrade.<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. hmmm first of all, what kind of a moron takes a tiburon over this? you have to be seriously insane, this has more power, better acceleration, better handling, MUCH MUCH MUCH more upgradeability just because it is a honda, will last longer, made with better material, and although it is in the same class as the shark, it outclasses that shitty ferrari look alike.

    And a mustang... the key word is CHEAP, its a wanna be sports car, i would much rather buy the WRX and ABUSE the fugly mustang with a 2.0 liter subaru, IN YOUR FACE muscle car fans.<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Yes i agree with the guys who said performance over "Look at my car" job. And yes suspension and brakes will make it handle better and so fort but what i'm talking about is some more HP, like the wonderful world of turbos and performance gagetry.

  19. Hmmm...The Tiburon Isn't that bad but whoever takes a Tiburon Over this must be blind
     
  20. Re:

    This car is lowered, suspension is stiffer, bigger wheels........
     
  21. Preludes are still better
     
  22. I love how everyone seems to think they know all about cars and then say this upgrade is looks only. Let me educate you fools who do not understand how racing is. You need to rake a lot in a road course. Hard. Repeatedly. Often. This will demolish a stock system, causing fade and basicly either killing your lap times or putting you into the styrofoam. The package here is to a large extent eathetic, but make no mistake, this car is much more track worthy than the standard car. So if you think this is no "faster" than stock, get a clue. It might not be a good value for people who dont drive anyway and think they know how to build a 500bhp car, but it is good for the market its targeted at.
     
  23. I agree with you. But you do know that in reality this package is solely for the purpose of making money. I highly doubt that Acura designed this package for 'driving' enthusiasts.
     
  24. I totally agree. I'd be first on the list for an NSX Type-R (... if I had the money, lol).

    btw: the quote from Mononoke-Hime is "Are you selling soup or donkey piss?", not super donkey piss... at least in the Enlgish version... I can't speak Japanese, so I wouldn't know the origional quote, but I'm pretty sure he's not praising the quality of donkey piss...
