Been thinking of going abit mad this summer and purchasing a dc2 integra.Just running it through the summer then selling it on again.Always wanted a integra but carnt afford the long running costs etc.Is this a bad idea,What if i carnt get rid or end up loving too much to get rid or should i just leave alone and its a bit of a stupid idea.

Go for it. Be strict with yourself though and set limits, dates and amounts spent on it.

Note that car prices on the Integras will be highest through summer to September and then will dive. If you have a garage then it might even be worth hanging on to it if you get a good one and laying it up for the winter. Just do 6 months roadtax at a time.;)

Why not go for the S2000. as its gan to be a good summer you can go cruising with the top down.
yes slightly more expensive however

I think s2000 mybe out,to much money.Funny i said about buying a integra.About 6 months ago i was offered a integra minus the engine for 2k then i was gunna put the engine out of mine in but just couldnt afford so it was sold on.Anyway cut a long story short,a guy bought it and stuck a b18c4 in it.Turns out he carnt afford to run the integra and his civic.So hes offered it mi the first refusal.Wants close to 3k for it.Wonder what the insurance would be like with having the smaller engine less bhp.Do insurance places take a dim view of engine swaps.

They will charge as much as they can get away with. It certainly won't be cheaper. Chances are they will stick with the standard premium but don't be surprised if they ask for more money as the car has been customised.
