TL;DR: I’m in love.

I’ll start this by saying I had originally ordered a liquid carbon with Acura of Bay Shore, but they tried to charge me a $2500 markup so I backed out and was able to find Island Acura selling this model for immediate delivery at only $1000 over sticker, so I pulled the trigger.

I’ll address one issue that came up at delivery: a front panel near the headlight was pushed in a bit too far and didn’t align properly. Dealer is fixing it Saturday.

Other than that, the car has been wonderful so far. This is my first time driving stick, and it’s been super easy to learn on. The shifts are super nice and the clutch is very lightweight. As much as people harp on the exterior styling, I think it looks really nice and the body lines really are complimented by the white paint in this case. As for the interior, the seats are super comfortable with the suede inserts, and the steering wheel is super nice (something Acura seems to have down to a science in all of their models). The power adjustability is really good for a car in it’s price bracket. The display is really responsive, and the HUD is crystal clear and as I discovered the other day, it links up with your CarPlay navigation to provide directions. Overall, the interior is more than good for a car of it’s class. Very well done Acura.

In the way of driving dynamics, there’s not much to really talk about: it handles great, shifts nicely, and for an inline 4, it has a really nice exhaust note. Once again, nicely done Acura.

Now, although most of this car fantastic, there’s a few things I can complain about. For me, the throttle responsiveness in sport drive mode is way too aggressive, and even a slight tap is pretty aggressive on you. Other than that, the car drives great.

Overall, this car is great. Glad to see them bringing the Integra name back in a car as good as this.

Photos attached are pre-delivery.

Congratulations on your new Integra @Nom771! The white and red work so nicely together. With how crazy markups can be $1000 isn't the end of the world. As more cars are on the road I think more and more people are going to warm to the Integra's styling. What do you think of ride quality so far?

No complaints about the ride quality, it’s actually pretty smooth. Stacks up well to other cars in the price range

Sweet. Congrats! I just saw a video on the Integra Facebook page of a white ASpec Tech with a wrapped black roof and mirror caps. Looks amazing. Any thoughts on something like that, or black badging, etc., for your beauty?

I'm considering buying one of the blacked out badge sets through my dealer. I like to keep my cars as stock as possible though

Congratulations!

I've got a liquid carbon/red on order but keep wanting to back out and go with the white/red. Such beautiful color combo.

Also, think this would be a very decent platform for learning a stick on. The demo I drove it was very easy to drive. Though granted, I learned on something much harder and generally think most people should learn on the harder ones first (makes everything easy).
