    Ok, so, i'm looking at a '96 integra (Special edition [the one below GSR] w/ 160k - $2650 -Automatic
    Minor rust on back quarter by the back bumper (about the size of 2 flashdrives, small flash drives)
    other than that, it looks like some one tapped the bumper a little, nothing major.\
    Oh yea, it needs tires too... i forgot about that (well, the treads were like 1/2 inch, is that normal? i know nothing about tires)

    So:
    1. good deal? it bluebooks for $2,750 And what if i can talk him down to $2,000 - $2,300???
    2. It's not rusted all the way through, what do you guys think it will be to fix (like how much)?

    Honda make decent cars. Im getting 700kms a tank on mine, granny shifting.

    1/2 inch seems a lot of thread for dry roads but if you drive in snow i guess you need alot.

    Dont bother with a kit, just get front and rear lips for it.

    Don't you (or your family), have a mechanic you trust? That you can take it to, and have them take look at & give you a valued opinion & estimate of valued price?

    Honda/Acura makes good cars in general and it won't be any worse then any other car of similar age and type.

    That said, watch out for the transmission, they have the nickname 'glass boxes' for a reason. Test drive it and make sure it shifts smoothly.

    Not a good deal. Tires will cost a couple hundred, which puts the cost above BB value.

    I have a 98 Integra GS (which i think is the same style as the one you are looking at) And I have had 0 problems with it, the mileage is a little less then the one you are looking at, 130k, Like vedya said I would try and talk them down for the price of the tires. And if you can get a mechanic friend if you have one to look at it, I had my uncle do a quick lookover, and that convinced me and my dad. Good luck, great car if you do decide to go with it, I love mine, though i do not condole the use of an automatic transmission ;)
