Thumbs up Need Opinions



Okay... another dumb question from myself... considering this is a Bimmer sight /// but here it goes... Honest opinions people!... whatz best ... i know it depends on the kinda driving i plan to do.. but .... ACURA INTEGRA 94'....or....BMW 318is 91'??? i'm just kinda stuck ... need some reassurance (assuming both cars have just about the same amount of mileage)

speed they are probably close to the same. my friend has a stock non-vtec 2000 teg and my car can hang with it pretty well. handling the 318is will smoke it same with braking. if you drive in the snow alot the fwd teg will be nicer than rwd though. tegs seem smaller inside than a 318. i dont know for sure if numbers prove this, but it feels that way to me at least.

if it's GSR integra it will smoke 318
I dunno I've never driven 318 but I think any integra should smoke 318, integra is so much lighter.

i guess it all depends on what your really looking for. the bimmer is a lot nicer in quality and prestiege. and id say faster than the LS,RS and probably the GS model,,, but im positive that the GSR and Type-R will be much faster.. mods for the integra are alot cheaper, but you can get leather and all power options on a 318 (i think).....besides if your going for the looks BMW is the way to go, you just cant turn heads with an Intergra now-a-days. IMO id go for the 318.......

Yeah... as it stands i think i'll stick to the 318is... good looks, good perfromance... what else can i ask for? but what i'd really want on it is this thing i saw on a 318is a while back... its like a spoiler on the hood,, i dunno what its called though >an added piece that fits on the hood just over the headlights.. it give's the car that "aggresive" look .. i love it. i really don't think its part of the skirt package but i don't know...

hmm.... "eyelids" .. could be it.. but i don't know for sure.
I would call it more of an "eyebrow" ..lol.. well the best way i can describe it would be its almose like an extension of the hood over the front just a little.. like maybe an inch or something...i'm workng on finding a pic to post...... most common on the 318's like 89 - 91
