Rep: 10 Jebus is on a distinguished road
Default First car

Hey guys,
I recently turned 16 and I'm looking to buy my first car. So far I've been looking at 3 cars. The first one is a 2002 Acura RSX Type S with 122000 kilometers for 6500. The second is a 2000 Honda Prelude H22 with 124000 kilometers for 3000$. And the third is a 2001 Acura Integra Type R with 177000 kilometers for 6500$. Which one would you guys get and what are some other cars you'd suggest under 7000$.

Heads up -- both Acuras will have absurdly high insurance rates. Unsure about the Prelude.

That aside, I'd have the RSX Type S out of those 3.

You should be careful though -- both Acuras are pretty quick for a first car. We've been through the hoops trying to convince younger drivers to lower their sights for a first car so that when they inevitably crash or break it, you have some money to buy another one. With that in mind, I'd go for the Prelude. It isn't quite as fast but still a reasonable choice for a first car.

I was going to insure it on my parents name so it's cheaper. They all have around 200 hp. And my parents sometimes let me drive their 2000 saab 9-3 with turbo around town so these cars aren't really too much more powerful.

I would get the prelude over the acura. equal performance just less bells and whistles but half the price. The h22 is a pretty decent motor as well. You could also look at a cobalt ss, 240z, 300zx, sx240, and many others but remember all two door sports car will have higher insurance.

Thanks, I have recently started looking at 240's too. And since it's my first car i was thinking of doing some mods but only basic ones. e.g. intake, exhaust headers and fart cans i heard they add 40hp per inch.

You'd be surprised the things I've heard.
