Annoying things: The driver side seat belt adjuster has a rattle over rough pavement in anything but the lowest setting. No power lift for the hatch. No memory settings for the side mirrors or lumbar support for the passenger seat. AC/heating vents for the rear would have been nice. Wireless charging is very underwhelming/slow.

Positive things: Very fun to drive with good handling. Manual transmission is good. Zero regrets.

Love: Heads up display. Engine snarl. Handling. Stick shift is a joy. Suede seats are grippy and stylish. Sound system. Driver assist functions are really smart and nicely evolved from Honda 5 years ago. Adaptive dampers do make a diff.
Wish List: 12-way pwr pass seat, rear seat vents, ventilated front seats (suede traps heat and makes back sweaty!), base model with stick shift (I would have likely bought that and been as happy)
TLDR: Fave is the way it drives. Least fave is personal opinion on feature omission

I'm 2 weeks in and I love it. I missed driving a manual and this is a fun one to drive. Sound system is nice and the technology is easy to use. I was coming from a C Class so the things I don't love are a few of the added features I knew about before I bought (leather/ventilated seats, universal garage, better keyless entry). And those things are not worth an extra $5-7k.

I have about 1,000miles on mine. I like almost everything about it. It is a fun to drive Acura with most of the Acura amenities. I would like to see ventilated front seats. My one big complaint is trying to shift gears with my large water bottle in the cup holder (with a manual transmission).

I am waiting for my integra to come in (expected in early September). What is your favorite part of the car and least favorite so far?
My favorite aspect is the fun factor. My wife has a 2016 BMW 340i. It’s a very powerful car but the power goes to waste in the city where we do 90% or more of our driving. The Integra’s 234 horsepower (as rated by Hondata for stock Integras) seems to be perfect for aggressive city driving. I wouldn’t change anything about this car.

Love everything about it. Drives fantastic. I knew about the features it didn't have ahead of time (ventilated seats, garage door opener, even 200hp engine....) so I don't miss them at all and really would not have wanted to pay a higher price to have them anyway. With ASpec Tech most of the stuff you get is well worth the additional cost. I will agree that the wireless charger is not great, but, hey, if that's my only complaint then Acura is doing a pretty good job.....

Pros: Zippy, fun to drive, great mpg, awesome manual gearbox. I love the interior and so does everyone who sees it. Stereo is awesome and infotainment screen works well.

Cons: No programmable garage door opener button, no vents for rear passengers, if you choose the heated steering wheel you forfeit the colored/matched stitching.

It's a fun, great car, and I think it looks great! Hope your car arrives on time!

I'm just over 600 miles in after close to 3 months, and I have no regrets. In January, I was waiting on a 2022 Si, but was debating getting the Civic Touring with a manual transmission for the luxury features and convenience of the hatch. The Si, unfortunately, just felt a little immature/cheap. I admit I was underwhelmed by the Integra in the debut yellow, but I thought it looked incredible in the other rendered colors.

Pros: The sound system is incredible, and the interior finishes are every bit as nice as one should reasonably expect in this price point. There's plenty of storage, and the power is more than sufficient for real world use. If you get the 6MT, you won't be disappointed--it's a great gearbox.

Cons: Aftermarket options are still pretty limited, but they're coming along.

My least favorite things are fairly minor, but eat at me when I think about how cheap and easy it would have been for Acura to include/resolve.

1. Homelink is included with every other model and has been on older models for several years. How hard would it have been to slap a few buttons between the map lights? Even easier, pull one of the Homelink mirrors out of the existing parts bin and stick it on. In a car loaded with a so-called tech package, this is a glaring omission. I get adaptive suspension, limited-slip, and a heads-up display but no button to open my garage door?

2. I find the auto wipers to be way too sensitive. It seems like they flip from intermittent to the highest speed with no perceptible increase in precipitation. The wipers on my '19 TLX and '22 MDX are perfect. These are wacky. If there's a way to adjust the sensitivity, I'd love to know about it. I don't need hyper speed wipers during a moderate sprinkle.

3. My lane keep assist wants to fight me. More often than not, it wants to hug the lane on the right side, to the point where the little Integra on my dash shows the passenger mirror over the line. So when I'm running with LKAS on, it feels like I'm constantly applying resistance to the left to keep the car in the middle of the lane. Again, maybe something that can be calibrated, but it's annoying.

4. The quality of the stock carpet floor mats is abysmal. I'm sitting at about 1200 miles, and the spot where my right heel rests is already almost bare. This is less of a concern to me because I'll be picking up the all season mats soon, but again for a car at this price point the quality is super disappointing. Once again, using my '19 TLX for reference, the stock carpets are immaculate after 50,000 miles and are much higher quality.

If these features were on the cutting edge, or even just new to Acura, I'd be a little more forgiving. But they've long been perfected and should have been very easy to execute well here for little-to-no additional cost.

I replaced my front and rear carpets with Tuxmats. You should check it out.

As soon as I figure out how to send photos of my mats, I will. New to this forum, but for now, you could look up the mats for the Integra online. They are a thicker and more durable mat and in my opinion, a lot better than WeatherTech mats. The rear mat is on one large piece and has to be clipped to the plastic coverings for better coverage. You can spill anything on these things and it will clean right up. I have kids -- they are messy, and needed additional protections in place to keep the car looking nice.

I so wish I had another car so I could do the same. I heard the sound of fries crashing on the mats and I thought I almost died. I TOLD them not to drop the food and they freaking did it anyway. Like, the Integra is my new baby and I just can't stand the abuse it's already getting from my children. :LOL::cautious:
