ok i want to sell my civic come spring and im starting to save money now to add on top of it so i can get a nicer ride. i want to stay within the 4-5000 dollar range. i was thinking an integra 2door, or just stick with the ek hatch but get a 99-00 one. whatever i get this time will be a 5speed. any opinions on what i should look for?

which one is better is a matter of what you want.

the integra will have a higher stock horsepower no matter which motor it has. the only motor that ever came in the 99-00 ek hatch was the d16y7 w/ a whopping 107 hp.

on the other side of things I think that the ek hatch looks 3836585939212804 times better than integras.

also keep in mind that no hatches ever came with power windows, locks, steering, etc. that was one of the main reasons I sold my hatch and bought a ex coupe. so if you want any of that stuff, you will either be doing a ex electrical conversion, or getting the integra or a coupe.

Hatches are where it is at man. Seriously. I can understand you wanting a slightly newer car with a 5speed. Automatic simply blows in hondas and other import cars.
And who needs power windows?Psshh. Lazy man button right there. =P

great for tolls in hectic traffic... or when you're driving alone and suddenly decide you want all of the windows down or up.

You ever try rolling down the manual passenger window while driving 70 mph? ****'s dangerous

i would like to have a fast car however i dont really want to race. it would be nice to blow past an ******* who wont let you pass on those "ok to pass for 1/2 mile" kinda deals. i mainly want a daily driver

my hatch is basicly stock except for a few minor bolt ons and it came stock with power steering... 97 civic hatch cx..

ek hatches look ****** shweeet lowered, i know that, thats why i want to keep the hatch, everytime i look at my car, i think to myself i cant believe i bought this myself. this is the newest, and nicest car my familys ever had and its all mine bahahahhaa

but on the other hand, who wouldnt want to rock this?



or this..
