    just buy a usspec one. it will cost half as much, and you can still hit up a drive through.

    If you are going to import something and go through the hell that that entails, you should get something that is only available in japan.. something that would be rare here. Otherwise, why bother?

    Yeah. I wouldn't bother for something as retarded as an integra. It would have to be something not available here at all. Skyline, Pulsar GTI-R, etc etc

    depending on how much money you have...

    you can buy a supra here for lets say 50% of your money and sink another 50% into mods

    or

    buy one from Japan for 100% of your money and have a stock JDM supra....


    Why am I even replying to this thread lol.

    go import a Civic Type R and be happy.

    Because everyone and their mother has one. plus smog over there is much harder then here, when a car gets higher miles it cost that much more to keep it on the road.

    Sometimes you can find them on Autotrader depending on where you live. There's usually a couple dozen on ebay at any given time. They're not really that common cause they didn't sell particularly well here, due to their being overpriced in their performance bracket.
