What do you think?

Alwright, finally im going to buy a new car.

I had my eye on a Celica GTS, but now a guy offered me his car. Honda Civic Type R.

Both cars are 2002 models. they cost the same.

The Type R is faster, right?

I think both are european types, GTS is 193 hp, Type R is 200 hp

What would you guys do?

Get a Civic if you are over twenty and date pre-teens. Get a Celica if you are a pimp or pimpess. Not a word but I like it, okay? Just lay off. Stop hassling me.

Great choice. The good part is that you weren't swayed by anyone's opinion. You were your own person and made up your own mind. grin

I think I'll be the only one to say go with the Civic-R.

Try out the Intgera Type-R while you're at it. I like it better than both Civic-R and the GTS. The difference of power is really noticeable beteween the 3.

Civic-R

Integra-R

Look at those, they're so nice!

GTS. The Euro Spec Integra Type-R would be a better choice than a Civic.

Never been to Iceland, but if its like the rest of Europe, speed really doesn't help much on narrow roads, plus the Celi owns the R in looks.
