Well if Need for Speed Underground 1 is anything to go by then the Acura RSX = Honda Integra Type R. We have Accords in New Zealand, but they are called Honda Accord Euro, and are a different shape to that. that would be branded an integra here. Im pretty sure you can also buy new Preludes here, and i think the S2000 ended production/importation to NZ late last year. they are the only Honda i would ever buy.

there was an interesting article i read with the S2000 vs Mazda RX8 vs Porsche Boxter, and they could not decide on which was best, even though they are all aimed at more or less the same market, while being very different cars. I would have chosen the RX8 out of those cars. My grandperants chose the boxter. difference was they actually purchased one lol (Edit: the porsche boxter is a bitch to drive. the gearbox is not userfriendly at all, and it wasnt even the sport box. i kept changing from 1st to 4th, and then 4th to 1st instead of 5th all on accident.. that is how close the gears where! once you are in gear though, .... wow!)

i would get those cars if they had:
s2000 with turbo and stage 2 carbon clutch, on 245/45r18 rear 225/45r18 front.
rx8: 30mb(?) 3 rotor with turbo, the speed 6 gt 6 spd trans and stage 1 ceramic 6 puck clutch
boxter: has to have the sport package with the bembo 6 piston ceramic brakes.

my buddy (whos father is an Executive at Anheiser Busch) has an S2000 and i love that car, its got wicked pickup and is alot faster than i expected. It doesnt need a turbo, it handles great too.. no body roll
I wouldnt ever buy one new but if it was given to me i would drive it a few weeks before i sold it and bought a new m3

Dam. The answer is no guess your right.... sigh.
I really want one, but not enough to sell my dinan thanks though. I want to keep this one as the "nice/fancy garage queen" type and have the e30 as the project/nitty gritty/ sleeper type.

psh... not in my area.
Well I guess thats a lie but I have a couple things I am looking for such as:
Two doors
Manual
Less than 200k miles
FAIRLY mechanically sound(I want it to be in decent running shape)
and would prefer plastic bumpers but can live without. I was gonna buy one not too long ago then my dump e36 broke down and I had to drop 800 to overhaul the cooling system

i got 2 e30s for 850. the one that i was originally driving was from texas, absolutely no rust, but had a bent frame. the other one i got is the one im driving now which is a rust pile (which i paid 50 for). the delphin car had anywhere from 100k to 150k miles on it. you'll find one, but if you want a cheap one for a project you may wait a long time.

I had found one though from a guy here on the fest. PCE30 or something of the matter.
I even went and looked at it and drove it. Scheduled a PPI for it and then later that day my car took a hot steaming sh*t on my driveway and cost me 800 dollars. If it werent for that I would have a e30
