My Accord is starting to see the light, and I need a new car within about a month. I already read the FAQ about the Integra, and know that the GSR is well worth the money. However, I wish to spend about $5500 to $6500 out of my money on this car, and I can borrow a grand or two from my parents to pay back over summer if I need to (I'm a college freshman, so that's still okay). I know I can get an LS in my price range, but how much can I expect to pay for a GSR with less than 80,000 miles? All I know about Integras came from frantic research these past two days, since my transmission started failing and any input is greatly appreciated. What do I want to look for when buying one?

you can find 94-96 gs-r's within that price range, as far as what to look for i'd say good oil change record, not a lot of mods, and little body damage

There was a clean black 97 integra gsr w/ 87k on the motor for sale down the street from me. It just sold for $7800!!! I bought my 94 gsr with 112k back in 98 for $8,000. Even though the car had high miles, the original owner kept every reciept of maintenance, aftermarket parts, smog records, etc! Do a carfax on whatever car you become interested in, check for rust, ask for records/reciepts, check the motor our, listen for unusual noises, buy from an older person or a female if possible. Good luck on your hunt though! It really depends on the area you live in and the cost of living!

Thanks for the advice, guys. I'm going to fix the tranny on my Accord and sell it in good condition, since it might take a while before I find an Integra.
