    Well im looking around and theres a good amount of 4 doors with low miles and good prices. What do you guys think? I like the idea of people not having to be so cramped but it also does not have the same effect as the 2 door but at the same time i think any 4 door i get will have a better chance of not being a lemon do to the fact any one who owns a 4 door owns it for a reason, meaning there older then most and take better care.

    :cliffs: I didnt really want a 4 door, but theres lots of nice ones around.
    Do you really think i will be missing much if i got a 4 door.



    Basicly should i aim for 2 door or just GSR, and leave it at that. I cant decide if i should even consider the 4 doors when i see them. I do know that with the back handles shaved they start looking pimp

    i would not buy a 4 door GSR... its just not the same car...its heavier and doesent handle or stop as well....if u want an automatic then i guess u would have to get a 4 door but who cares about the people who sit in the back..if its ur car...u shouldent be back there

    its the exact same car only the B pillar is moved forward a few inches on the sedan to accomodate the door. I doubt there's a 100 lb difference between the coupe and sedan. It's his car, but the difference is he has friends, so four doors would actually be more worthwhile... another plus is if/when you get married/have a kid, your wife won't make you get rid of the car you put money into already because.... it's already a four door!

    Get the sedan, CAI, Intake, and a turbo kit.

    F0 D0= better sleeper :)

    I love my 4-door sedan! The sleeper look is a good thing. And if I really had to, I finally have a car that I can haul my friends around in. As my Si is usually a one-seater. lol.

    the 4door doesn't weigh that much more than your standard GSR, I think the weight was like 40ish pounds more.

    If you arent sure, then dont post such accusations. A 4 door, is more stable becuase of longer wheelbase and possibly wider.

    I found these figures on this website.

    2000 Acura Integra GS-R Sedan MT 2764
    2000 Acura Integra GS-R Coupe MT 2672

    2764
    -2672
    92

    A sedan weighs 92 lbs more than a Coupe. Give or take for the driver.

    not really, if it's a short ram intake you can probably use it as a filter for the compressor housing like the greddy kit so no rocks or other objects get sucked up.

    get a 95-97 gsr, oval combustion chambers = higher compression.

    im also sure it adds a few feet to ur stoping distance...so to say that 90lbs isint much....its enough to make a diffrence.....were not talking about muscle cars here...these little cars wouldent do anything if they were heavy....its not that hard to figure out...unless all u care about is ur new body kit and ur clear tailights

    92lbs = 92/100 = .o92 tenths off........... :p


    either way, I say if your looking for a tad different look without the hassle of every mofo on the street and a ride that has lots of potential, and the price is right --> go for it.


    Distant friend had a GSR Sedan with just a Drag Gen 2 kit "this was a while ago" but ran 13.2 on street tires. Not too shabby....
