Re: trade my m3 for a itr?!?!? (Comptechgsr)

If you plan on doing track events, go for the ITR. I've never owned one, but my roommate had one for a short while. They aren't very comfortable as daily drivers, and the theft factor is on it's own scale. They're not worth it if you don't plan to do track events, and even at that, it would be best if you keep it garaged too.

Re: trade my m3 for a itr?!?!? (AZGolf)

i kinda owned an itr before (well minus the bling and theft factor)..see above.

i know no matter what u cant change a gsr into an itr, but i had the
itr tranny,
itr brakes (plus nsx calipers up front),
some nice 300f/400rear lb. ft ground controls (other suspension stuff too).
and my 1.8 (1798cc)
was putting down 203whp/128 torque @ a bit under 11:1 compression,
no forced induction

What are your goals with cars? Comfort or performance?
M3 is pricey as a performance oriented car, the ITR would be much cheaper to run for track events and auto-x. If it's a daily driver, I probably keep the M3 for comfort. The ITR just like the WRX, gets a lot of attention from the ricers looking to step up for races.

As incredible as that ITR is, I would be very wary of the theft factor. A car like that gets all kinds of bad attention.

i'm gonna say no too.
maybe if it was stock it'd be a different story.

I say yes if you want it. No to that modified Type R though. Personally, why not strip your M3 and modify it for track use?

Re: trade my m3 for a itr?!?!? (Comptechgsr)

As you're a previous owner of an Integra, I'd say you're the best qualified to make the decision. From what I've found, even special performance editions of a car feel very similar to the lower powered versions...they just have a stiffer suspension and more power.
Is that what you want...your old car back, but with some added power, handling, a rougher ride and more style?

If I owned a Integra Type R I wouldn't be able to sleep at nights b/c some fool will try to steal it.

ESPECIALLY in Boston. I've had a car stolen up there (wasn't it the worst city in the US for car theft?) and a GTI vandalized. And that was when I was just visiting! I hate bringing my cars up there, even though I love the city.
A ITR in Boston? Hell no. Not unless you have an armed guard and some amazing anti-theft devices.

Re: trade my m3 for a itr?!?!? (dcomiskey)

ITR is a fun car and with a few mods, will outhandle the M3...
That being said, I'd rather have the luxury of the M3, plus i just think ITR's are shady..
but to the people that told him to be weary of theft... had you not seen the picture of his modded integra in the first pic? unless it got stolen, i think he knows the risks.
edit: oooo JDM front.. get it
heh.
