    I've been doin some research into the next car i want to get and im keen on the Integra Type R 02>. I was planning a load of mods for my civic but then i thought it might be a better idea to concentrate on saving for my next motor. Has anyone got any usful info on integra type r's pros-cons.
    Or am i aiming to high? By the time iv got the money for 1 ill be 19 and the insurance is probably still goin to cost a bomb. Is there any other cars you'd recomend (preferably honda :p).

    Why not start out with the DC1 Integra This is a very credible car and should be cheaper to insure than the DC2. The DC2 looks fantastic.

    I think your decision to hold off is a good one because the cost of modding a car would be better spend on the Type R which is a much better tuning base.

    Concentrate on getting some No Claims Bonus in the meantime.

    the >02 plate is it not the DC5 ?
    this is only avalible as an import so insurance will be a bit higher couple this with the fact at most your going to have 2 NCB (if you started your insurance from 17).
    Go for the older integra, can buy them over her no problem, power is less than the new version so better for insurance

    Scratch the numbers from my last post - I'm going a bit senile. I was suggesting a 1992 DCwhatever! ;)

    Just to let you know, the Type R DC2 is group 18 insurance. I have 8 years no claims and i'm 40. Mines X reg (2000) plate and kept garaged overnight with cat 1 alarm and i pay £289 a year.
    I would say its worth getting one as they are getting scarce and will soon be a collectors car.

    What year did they make the DC2? Is this the JDM spec one?

    The DC2 was made from 1994 until 2001. However, this excludes 1999. The JDM spec used the B18C5 engine. The same engine used in the UK Type R. Personally I prefer the newer DC5s to the DC2s. I think they look better and they have the newer K series engines meaning they produce more power.

    Yeah 220bhp is correct. The S2000 uses an F series engine. They get 240 bhp out of them because they are Honda! Enough said. :lol:

    The DC2 is sometimes (although rarely) referred to as the DC4. I'm not too sure when this applies though. As for a DC3... there was never one made. As far as I can tell this is because the DC2 was also the DC4, so if the newer one was called the DC3, then it would be going backwards.

    Thats interesting and solves something I've always wondered about.
