Thanks! The main two cars I considered were a previous generation BMW 230i and a Civic Sport Touring hatch. I also considered just getting another sports car but I would prefer to just have one good car. The 230i was nice but very different; in the end a nimble feeling and practicality won me over, the integra is bigger than the 230i but I think lighter(or at least get it). The integra felt fun at legal-ish speeds. The Elantra N was too ugly, I had a VW a while ago and it didn’t feel quite at the same level as the integra.
As for my 996, I swapped a different engine in to the 996 that was very similar(the old engine was done for good with a hole in the block) but from a slightly different model so it required some ingenuity; then over time I did suspension work and converted from AWD to RWD. I also did some mods to the exhaust and some other small stuff. It was a cool car. I miss it, maybe someday I’ll get a boxster, cayman or another 911.
