Sold the TL recently, loved it most of the time while I had it and still think its one of the best sedans Acura ever made. Definitely got the styling right on this one.


With that, joined the eurogang with a B8 S4! (excuse the shitty pic for now)

Fully loaded with sport diff, should be fun and quite the beast after some money gets dumped into it

Curious what made you swap cars? Coupes are stiffer than targas? ITB's are awesome?

to be honest with you - when i was shopping for my NSX i was sticking strictly to 91-92 NA1 in either white, red, or black mainly for manual rack, potential ability of changing gearing (95 they changed it a bit so its more of a pain in the ass to change up the gearing)

i was never too fond of the NA2 front - i didnt like it nor do i hate it but it doesnt look nearly as good when modified (while retaining stock body)

the white na1 w/ na2 conversion popped up for sale for a good deal and i decided to give it a try and jump on it - seeing how i could always do na1 conversion down the road since its cheaper than na2 conversion

after driving it and tracking it - i knew immediately that i wouldn't want to put too much more money into this car as i wanted shorter gearing (for track) and a coupe

i've looked into bracing the targa but after talking to other targa owners who have owned a coupe + targa w/ bracing - it just isnt better

thus i decided to sell my white na1/2-r after my friend told me this na1 coupe in red was for sale

this na1 already has everything i wanted - shorter jdm type-r gearing + fd, coupe - and bonuses like C32 rather than C30, ITB + other suspension related goodies

i've enjoyed driving my na1/2 for the short time i had it but after test driving this red na1 - i cant go back to it

Thanks for the feedback. I knew the stiffer coupe would be a deciding factor since you'll track it and I forgot all about the manual rack on first few model years. I've never driven a non-P/S version but can I assume that the steering is still fairly light considering the weight bias? So it's the 5 speed mated to the newer C32 engine with shorter JDM gearing and FD?

Those ITB's must scream!!!!

mmm to be honest - i converted the white nsx to manual rack since the p/s rack was leaking

i wouldnt say its light - seems like typical car w/o powersteering

however on the track w/o powersteering the amount of feedback you get - is ridiculous

yep 5 speed mated to c32

New Revscene member here. I've been lurking for a while. Just picked up a 2006 Competition M3 with the 6-speed manual. Got it from the second owner who had it for 10 years. I've been looking for either an e39 M5 or a Comp M3 6-speed for a long time and finally found one. It's a blast to drive.

^^did you just buy this off CL? I was just thinking that this was about as nice a spec M3 as you can get.

Great job - bring it out to some BMWCCBC cones days in the spring
