Hey guys, what's up. I've been waiting for this board to come up for months now... I'm glad it's back. Anyways, I'm looking to buy a GSR this summer and I was wondering what you suggest I should be paying for one. I've been following papers, websites, and magazines for a couple months, and I see that 94-96 GSR's are running for 10,000 - 14,000. Does that sound reasonable? And what should I be looking at as far as milage goes? I would appreciate any help. Peace.

Interesting in having a GSR with extra 2 doors... :D
JK.
By the way, for 94-96 GSR, if you 're not in a hurry, do the search.
My friend has got 95 GSR in very good shape, $9800.
It was sold by owner and the lady owner, so definitely no abuse.
The car was well kept in the garage.
So, take your time looking.

My girlfriend just bought her 95 GSR for close to $10K, and it was in spotless condition.

Since a 94 is now 8 years old look for mileage to be about 8 x 15000 which is the average mileage each year now. That turns out to be about 120,000. That is alot of milage. You could look into buying a 94-96 LS and swapping in a B18C for about the same price you could get a GSR for. That way you could probably get a 94-96 car with a GSR motor with 30-40 thousand miles on it. Plus insurance is cheaper on a LS.

Hey thanks for the advice guys. I'm thinking about waiting for this summer, and hopefully finding a good deal. I wouldn't mind paying $10,000, if it's in good shape. As far as the miles on the car, I'm not going to even look at the car if it has over 60,000 miles. Wish me luck!

Good luck. Finding a 94-96 with the original motor with less than 60,000 miles is going to be some task.

It can be done.

Yeah I agree with you there, but if he likes the body of the integra I would recommend buying a 95 LS(because the 94's have the ugly black molding on the doors) and swapping a B18C or H22A motor in there. Your insurance will be less and you might be able to do it for around 10,000.

all ls's have black molding up to 97. h22a in a teg=shit for handling.

imo it's not worth the $$ to buy an ls and swap the engine for a gsr. the gsr also has stiffer suspension, rims, cluster, spoiler, strut bar, bigger lower tie bar, and best of all retains it's value. what i mean by that is if you get a ls and swap the engine, the value will still basically be the same, if not lower, because it shows you beat on your car. i know the things i listed aren't big but it all adds up pretty quick, especially if the car is going to be left stock.

btw honda's with 100K aren't a problem. this isn't domestic pos. honda engines easily stand up to 250K+ miles (friend has 88 accord w/260K, another friend has 94 hatch w/290K). they don't have problems with their engines even though the mileage is so high. a gsr w/100K can easily be found for under 10K. getting an ls and swapping the engine is not worth it.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm looking to buy one that is at least a 94, simply because I like the body style better. Sounds like you got a nice ride. I wonder when they are going to start a "Post Pictures of your rides" thread? I was thinking about starting it, but it would be kind of stupid because I'm not lucky enough to own one yet. ;) By the way.. I converted your $9300 in canadian, and it came out to roughly $124. I heard the exchange rate is bad.:D LOL. Jk.

Purchase of GSR

One of my friend recently purchased a savage title Integra 94 GSR red color for $8000.00

The car had 58,000 miles with some aftermarket intake and neuspeed sport springs.

The car looks alright.. paint job is in good condition.

Only problem I'd noticed so far is the hood won't close correctly.. You gotta slam it.

None the less I think the car is tat over price.. should be in low $7000.00

P.S. I drive 99 Integra GS-R, All black, AEM intake, RS-R exhaust,
Sprint springs. Check out my pic below.. poor quality but camera
works!

First off, not all LS's up to 97 had black molding. It was the early ones like 94 and 95. The 96's and 97's have color matched molding. Second, do you have a H22 integra? I wouldn't talk until you have one. The difference in weight is 75 pounds. It doesn't affect handling that much. Obviously you don't know much about cars when you say a engine with 100,000 miles on it is perfectly fine. I bet if you compression tested it you would think differently.

I think you should really do some research before starting your debate.

It doesn't matter what suspension a car has. I don't know that many people that are concerned about performance with stock wheels and suspension.

Any car that has performance parts is going to turn people away when buying it because it is a sign that a person is hard on it.

Yeah things like that do happen. I was looking at a 98 eclipse GSX a while back with only 20,000 miles on it. An old man owned it before. It still smelled brand new.

WOW! I wish I could find a GSR like that! Where was the dealership located?

Well, it depends on where you live...but that price is high for a salvage car. I live in the Bay Area, and here GSR, especially 2 doors are always in HIGH DEMAND. People pay above blue book for them. I got so sick and tired everytime I saw a gsr on the Internet or newspaper, there would be a couple of others buying at the same time who would offer above blue book. 2-door gsr Owners most of the time demanded above blue book themselves. Owners demand $10-$13k for 95-96 GSR with almost or above 100k!

So I settle for a 94 Integra GSR, sedan for $7500. The car had a little over 100k but the owner bought it brand new and she had ALL the maintenace record and it belong to the mature 30's type people who had 2 babys and need to sell this car. I could of got it for around $7000-$7200 but the guy just spent $500+last month on maintenance. The roof also needed repainting since they live by the beach but I know the owner of a auto-body shop who can do it for $150-$200. I also had to replace the timing belt and water pump. I know a owner of a repair shop...$400 including all belts(timing, ac, ps, alt), all seals, and water pump using factory acura parts. So not a bad price.
