Final Photoshoot: Bye Bye DB8 GS-R

So the time has come to regrettably entertain the thought of selling my beloved DB8 GS-R Integra. Because of my long commutes each day, I spend a lot on gas each month so I have to get back on to a vanpool to save some money. And leaving the Integra parked at the vanpool is a sure fire way of having it stolen. And I don't want to leave the Avant parked at the vanpool spot everyday either. So the next best thing is to sell the Integra and use the proceeds to get a bike (looking at the Ninja 300) which would put approx $400 back in my pocket each month.

Anyway, long story short, I took the Integra out for her last photoshoot yesterday in hopes of using these photos when I list the car for sale sometime this week.

Enjoy!

Good luck with the sale. I'm sure you would have no problem selling it

Man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

She's a nice looking ride, no doubt, but rest assured, you will find a replacement for her down the road.

Life is too short to only have a few vehicles.....go through as many makes and models of cars and bikes as you can!

So clean. Needs a bigger exhaust though.

Fontana, eh? That's not too far from downtown l.a. Asking price?

Very nice. I've always like the Integra sedans over the coupes, but I guess I'm just weird

I'll be honest, the pictures hide the age of the car. There are dings on the car, but nothing major. Many of those dings could probably be taken out, I just never did it, because my long term goal for the car was to eventually get it repainted. And the front bumper has its share of rock chips and scuffs.

As far as money, the other part of keeping the car is the added insurance costs, maintenance, etc. If I can come up with a plan, I would love to keep this car, trust me.

NOOOOOOO! So tempting to get another one... There aren't very many 4 door GSR's left in this condition..

I understand though.... do you have any left over parts you need to sell??

I love it, I'm sad to hear that you have to let it go. One of my best friends still has his 01 GS-R 4 door...

His wife wants him to get rid of it and get something newer, but he loves the car too much. He bought it new when we were undergrads and it only has about 75k miles. He had no clue that is what is was worth until I told him to search for a 4 door GS-R in mint condition online. His only mods are an intake and exhaust...

Its value is one of the reasons why I am forced to sell. There aren't many cars like this that can fetch higher than blue book. If it gets stolen from the vanpool lot, I'll only see the blue book value from insurance which is why I have to play it safe, but damn I wish I could keep it.

Beautiful pictures and very nice looking GS-R. Hopefully you find a good owner for it cause it would be a shame to see such a clean GS-R get ruined.

I definitely understand. My friend was bitching about his insurance being so high and I found out he actually pays more for his GS-R than I do for my M3...

If I was in Cali I would GLADLY take it off your hands, repaint, and garage. That thar is a rare beast, or at least an uncommon beast. Your car will not last long on the used market.

Have I told people how much I love 'teggys?
