Stay away from 3.2CL (01-03) & 3.2TL(99-03). Although these cars are very nice they have major transmission problems and have been the subject of a lawsuit ( ) . I have an 01 TL that I love, but as soon as my extended warranty is up on the trans I'm getting rid of it.Sorry this doesn't actually answer your question, but If you are thinking about buying either of these models I thought I'd warn you to do your research. Good luck.

Ok, these are all trims on an integra.RS is rally sport, and is the base model, which is the "stripped" model, or the type-R shell. It comes in an auto or manual, and has a B18B1 (USDM) Non-VTEC motor. 142hp @7000RPM.LS is the one step above, and is pretty much the most "preferred". Stands for luxury sport, and has power everything. Has auto and manual, comes with some "LS meshies" if i believe. Comes with the same B18B1 non-VTEC. 142hp non-VTEC @7000.GS is another step above LS, and is pretty much the same as an LS. Stands for grand sport. Only difference is that it has leather and a spoiler. Same B18B1, 142hp NON-VTEC @ 7000.SE stands for special edition. Same as a GS, except it had a rear badge that said special edition. They turned it into a GS.Now the GS-R is probably my favorite teg, aside from the TYPE-R. Now excuse my language, but for all those dumFREAKS out there who posted just to get points...GS-R stands for grand sport racing. GS-R has all the features, EXCPET has an awesome B18C1 (USDM) DOHC VTEC (this basicially means it gives you a boost at high RPMS)(VTEC is the bomb) DOHC VTEC motor, 170hp @ 8000RPM. Also only comes in a 5 speed.Type-R is the highest of the line. Stands for type-racing, and is hellah cool. xD Has a DOHC VTEC B18C5, 195hp @8200RPM. A red stitching and black interior. Awesome? Comes wiht a red valve cover, and has some cool additions like a 5 lug bolt, and an "ITR" spoiler.I hope this helps dude. Oh yea..and...DB7 - Integra 4 door non-VTEC (RS, LS, SE, GS)DB8 - Integra 4 door DOHC VTEC (GS-R)DC4 - Integra 2 door non-VTEC (RS, LS, SE, GS)DC2 - Integra 2 door DOHC VTEC (GS-R & Type-R)---DC5 - Integra 2 door DOHC VTEC K20A2. (Known as the Integra Type-R DC5 in japan, or an acura RSX-S here)*EDIT*Acura is the same thing as Honda, except an upscale brand. So if some dumbo comes u p and says "Haha Honda badges on an Acura!" Tell them fo eff off ebcause Acura and Honda are the same, except that the "Honda Integra" is sold outside North America, and has a sexy JDM front. (96-present) In Japan, they still have the INTEGRA in production, except its the Honda INTEGRA Type-R, which is the RSX-S here in america, and has an 8200RPM redline (INTEGRA-R)
