Perhaps modernize the interior a bit with a touchscreen interface or something, but other than that I'd be totally fine with the NSX just as it is!
That's how I felt until I got a ride in a supercharged NSX. Now I'm gathering parts. Build thread to (eventually) come. (now diddy's going to laugh at me, I've been planning an install forever at this point). PS I've been gathering parts for ten months now, LOL. Plan is for SC with meth/water cooling. Luckily, a Comptech SC is essentially a bolt-on install.

I will hold onto my NA NSX for a while. Until I ride in one like Bob and then all will probably be out the door. Maybe Bob will get his installed before NSXPO and it will be his I ride in Get that thing installed already.

The same happened to me just like Bob. I rode in a friends supercharged nsx then drove mine home. It was during that drive home I knew I had to get one. They should have come from factory with them.

But yeah, basically. CTSC at low boost is low enough risk that Acura dealers were installing them back in the day. Yeah, it's not like a turbo NSX, but with a CTSC, you can keep up with a Ferrari 360 or other early 2000's supercar. Further, you don't have to worry (as much) about blowing up your very rare C30 or C32 engine.

I got my new coilovers and cups installed. I had to order different size cups since I switched coils and also had to get my system rewired. there was much to be desired from the way the first guy wired everything up.

my brand new rears finally came in, work vs-xx and I got a projector (Morimoto Mini H1 7.0 projectors) upgrade done to my headlights. I finally got my lights back, I only got the low beam projectors replaced since I barely ever use my highs I left those oem. the nsx comes with oem projectors but they're pretty old and outdated tech so even with my hid kit they were no match for the headlight tech out now. from what I've seen on other nsx owners cars that have gotten this mod its a world of a difference on the light output going from a 1995 projector to a 2019 projector. they also replaced the fluted glass housing and replaced it with clear polycarbonate composition on the headlight housing. the wheels are actually getting taken apart next week to have the bolts and lips chromed. polished lips is just way too much upkeep I don't want to bother with. chrome is so much easier to keep clean.

Looking good man. Glad you are sticking with gold wheels on the red looks so good.

I am sure the headlights will be a huge upgrade.

Your wife has been begging you to buy one of the greatest if not the greatest car of the 90s. What are you waiting for sir get on that.

It is still to be seen if the market is going to do but I thought by now it would drop back down a bit but it really hasn't yet so wondering if it might not.

yea, that's what i've been monitoring, back in 2015 we were looking pretty heavy, and took a break, came back and prices had skyrocketed. Additionally, the biggest factor holding me back is that it's limited to 2 seats. I legit don't get in a car of mine without kids (wouldn't have it any other way)...it's the main reason I bought the turbo instead of a viper. That said, i could fit an NSX on a lift in the garage above the impala (still park the turbo outside).

There was a local one available about 6 months ago we went and looked at, went back and thought about it and dude sold it unfortunately.

Bummer on it selling so quickly.

Understandable about not being able to take both kids but you could take 1 of them with you I want a kid so I can share my car hobby with them so I understand your desire to do the same.

I'm really surprised myself, I expected it to climb because of the new one. but to fall off after about a year.

if you find another one you're interested definitely don't wait around because all the nsx's at a decent number always sell pretty fast.

The turbo right now has 3 car seats in it...and the roof rack has a stroller, 2 skateboards, 2 scooters, and my daughters "motorcycle"
