I'm sure I'm not unique, but I've been checking this site regularly since reserving my Integra on March 10th and just got around to setting up a profile yesterday. Although I'm new here, I'm no stranger to Acura.

Past (non-Acura vehicles excluded):
1989 Legend Coupe V6 5MT - Charcoal Granite
2002 RSX Type S - Desert Silver
2003 RSX Type S - Satin Silver
2005 RSX Type S - Blaze Orange
2011 TSX 4cyl 6MT - Graphite
2015 TLX 4cyl - White

Current:
2019 TLX ASpec 4cyl - Red
2022 MDX Aspec - Liquid Carbon
2023 Integra Aspec Tech 6MT - Apex Blue

Clearly I had an RSX addiction (LOVED that Blaze Orange 05). The current situation is a result of perfect timing, I guess. My daughter has her temps and with the used car market being insane, she is getting the TLX and adding the Integra to our fleet made sense. I've had it for about a week and I absolutely love it!

Historically, I haven't been a very active member of the various forums I've been a part of, but I always enjoy learning from other enthusiasts. Feel free to ask questions about my sanity or anything else if you're interested!

Congrats on the new Integra and compliments on that impressive stable of Acuras.

How would you compare the handling dynamics and overall feel of the Integra vs. your RSX's?

Dang, that is commitment. Curious about what you owned that wasn't an Acura; you seem pretty devoted, so I can only assume the bar was set pretty high! Welcome!
Hahaha thanks! Here are the non-Acuras:

1984 Nissan 200SX - First car. 84 was actually the year that Datsun became Nissan and the car had both brands on the trunk lid. :D

1986 Toyota Celica GTS
(Legend)
2001 VW Jetta 1.8T - First brand new car
(RSX)
(RSX)
2004 Honda Element - Cool for the utility factor
(RSX)
2006 Honda Ridgeline Sport
2007 Honda Ridgeline RTL
(All the rest of the Acuras)

Man, I loved the RSX... Especially the 2005 refresh. It was a great driver's car. Rev-happy and simple, tons of fun.

I would assert that the new Integra captures that legacy in a modern language. Tons more tech, obviously, but from a driving standpoint it's more similar than people might think. To be fair, I've only had the car for 10 days or so, but the limited slip makes a big difference vs. the RSX. As good as it was, the RSX understeer was real. I certainly haven't pushed the Integra too much, but you can really feel the diff pull the car through corners. Also, I turned off the rev match shortly after I took delivery and haven't used it since. Heel-toe downshifts are effortless and satisfying. Reminds me a LOT of the RSX.
