Official: Type R Thread

Looking to go from STi to TLX but I also want a car I can still mod and have fun with. Had my eye on the Integra Type-R for awhile but going crazy trying to find a clean LHD. Trying to find one is like pulling teeth!

01 CW ITR
150,000KMs
Couple of small claims under $2000
No mods

Price is $18,000 and the seller states he won't take a penny less than asking. This seems like the norm from what I've gathered. What happened to negotiating. These owners are overvaluing the car like it's a collectible. I would be happy to buy one in the 9-12k range but $18k is absurd. Why can't owners be more realistic with pricing? 18K is S2K territory

Anybody looking to sell their ITR for a fair price? I know there's a bunch of ITR owners on here.

Sounds like you're more of a "GS-R" kinda guy.

lol overvalue? Move on if youre not willing to pay, if they get desperate enough they will drop the price. If you want it bad enough then you will pay the asking price

I completely agree with you - I was about to buy my friend's '00 CW ITR w/ JDM front a few years ago as he decided to move back to HK. He was asking $9000 from me - a steal of a deal for only 140k km on the odometer. That all went up in smoke when someone rear ended him as he was driving home one night and the car got totaled. (He was fine, but quite upset about it even to this day.)

Ever since then, I had hell of a time finding a LHD one in general. They're either out of my budget or had some ridiculous mods in them. But to be fair, it is what it is and it's simply a demand/supply game.

Good luck with finding one. They do exist, just needs patience.

It's not overpriced if people are willing to pay that.

Bone stock ITR's are very sought after and people will pay that kind of money for one.

Haha, unrealistic? Try supply and demand. These cars have now moved into collector status and everyone in the market knows it. Yes, prices are crazy nowadays but it is what it is. Our weak dollar isn't helping either.

This looks nice and reasonably priced: LHD USDM Acura Integra Type R w/ JDM Front End

I trust this is the ad you are referring to: Integra Type R

Ad for the ITR for $17500, I would have to call bullshit on the "valve adjustment on every oil change".

Unless the owner is doing all his own work and is anal about every detail of the car, this is a blatant lie. Not to mention, if the car is maintained and not beat to death it will not require a valve adjustment for a very long time.

Go buy a base Integra and mod it then. Clean ones are getting harder and harder to find. especially ones that have less than 200k. I don't think there will be any reason for prices to go down. Considering people ask $6000 for a Miata I feel the price is fair. lhd>rhd. You just don't have to deal with driving on the other side.

13.5k for a 200k without original front end, lol
18k for a US import, LAWL

OP has his frustrations misguided but so far the examples posted kind of validates his point

If i see a unmolested 97/99/01 then I can understand the pay-to-play price tag, but if a high milage 98/00 is listed well over $10K...fuck that, you're better off with a JDM import if it's not gonna be your daily.

and if you daily one then get ready to lose a ton of sleep over theft paranoia

to be honest the ITR will surpass the s2k value as time moves on. Limited production run is one of the many reasons. As time goes by the ITR will be similar to the E30 M3. A true driving experience you wont get from modern cars.

I think for 18k you can probably buy my coworkers. Spoon calipers, hood, front lip, entire car freshly repainted, LHD under 100k iirc

Following the theme from the last thread, you should probably write the owner a Haiku explaining your feelings towards his suggested price

I would like a clean LHD all original ITR for 9-12k but it ain't gonna happen. That ship sailed a few years ago.

If you plan to mod and drive the car you may consider higher mileage or a car with an accident to get your foot in the door. Just get a full inspection, maintain and enjoy.

For anyone not paying attention, desirable manual (esp 6spd)cars that provide a fun driving experience have been going up in value. As mentioned in other threads, E30 Edit: E36 E46 M3 E39 M5, S2000, NSX, ITR, air cooled 911, GT2, GT3 have all gone up in value over the past few years. Likely a combination of demographics (the generation who drooled over these cars can finally afford them), USD exchange, and the cars coming to market that do not provide the same fun and driver feedback. (There are some exceptions such as BRZ/FR-S/86, Cayman, Miata etc)

Is this the one that Ben @ A&J restored? I remember hearing about one he was working on recently.

Spoiler!

Nope, we purchased it off someone else and restored it ourselves. Although it wasn't too much work, just welding a few things and a fresh coat of paint

^That ITR originally belonged to Ben a few years ago. He rebuilt the motor and drove it for a bit until it was then sold to another local. After that, the car was wrapped matte green until it was then sold to the current owner.

Side note, that's my old spoon hood lol.

In regards to the ITR price going up, there's just nothing you can do about it. It's all about supply and demand right now. The demand is certainly there, if not more than a few years ago and the sellers know it. Give it five more years and we'll be saying that $16k for a ITR is cheap.
