They are good cars, very reliable, good MPG, and decent power for the small engine. Well worth it.

Only downside is theft so make sure you invest in a good security system. Also doesn't hurt to change the ignition cylinder and door locks if you don't 100% trust the seller.

You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here -

DC5 Honda Integra are cars built for the track but very driveable on the streets, if you just want a daily driven car a DC5 would be a waste of money.. No point buying a car with a hyped up 220hp, 4pot front brakes, stiff chasis etc when all you going to do is drive it like a normal car.

if thats the case then any normal 2ltr car half the price of a DC5 would do. the Accord CF4 with a f20B engine would be a good car. its a sedan does not attract attention of the police has balls(200hp) 4 doors 2ltr engine, big boot. or if you want to go one better the Euro R Cl1 Accord would be the best (220hp) 2.2ltr engine, stiffer chasis, better brakes, suspension, recaro interior, LSD(Insurance is cheap too)

you need to think about what your going to use the car for more than anything
