Re: Un-pimp your ride

I don't feel I need leather, but I really do enjoy it over normal cloth. I just usually don't get it because you almost always have to get a package with a sunroof somehow included (at least on a <$40k car). I am very very much anti-sunroof... so that never works. They also usually throw in an expensive stereo that I'll just be removing in the first week of ownership. Stupid packages.

i've driven both the older and more recent type-r, and they are a blast. my old company used to race a lightly modded type-r in a production series. there's no way my wife would let me put my daughter in the back, though!
Type R stands for Racing and S stands for Sport, hence R being more severe.

The DC-5 is the current version of the Integra (like the current version of the Golf is the MK v) and yes I am referring to the Type-R. I was at a meeting in Shizuoka today and there was one in the parking lot so I snapped a few piccies whilst we waited for the Taxi LOL - I:m such a tourist

Re: Un-pimp your ride

As a Honda fan, I see the same problem with the Integra DC-5 which has never been officially available here. I have a Civic Type-R, but I long for the Integra which is just a little bit tastier, I just can`t bring myself to buy a grey import

Re: Un-pimp your ride

R32's are pretty thin on the ground - i think you're in one of very few places that even gets the new one, jono.

Re: Un-pimp your ride

The Golf GTI is a nice car, but still suffers from the "Sloan Ranger" image it has had since the Mk I, a definite yuppie housewife mobile.

It`s the sort of car your girlfriend should have

The R32 on the other hand...

Re: Un-pimp your ride

myeh... i feel qualified to make a judgement on that, living in toronto (-30c) and sydney (+40c).

i'd still take leather if only because it's the closest i'll ever come to being over-run by biker babes.

Re: Un-pimp your ride

Leather seats are actually not a must have item. I have them in my GTI VR6, and they get extremely cold in the winter. Granted, I have heating in the seats, but it takes a while to kick in. I guess they'll also get extremely hot in the summer.

Re: Un-pimp your ride

yeah, i've been looking around for a new car for a while, and changing my mind every other day. the new gti is definitely on my short list, despite not being a very "grown-up" car (or perhaps because of that).

leather seats? must-have item.

Re: Un-pimp your ride

That new GTI doesn't look like a terrible car... too bad the leather seats forces you to get satelite (which I already subscribe to) and a sunroof (worst option EVER). Damn packages.
