Are you looking for an Automatic or 6-Speed Manual version? What's your budget?

8-10k is a decent range for a Type-S Auto.

Since you’re in the salt states, you may find one for 7-8k. But not with detailed maintenance and accident free..

Maybe with an uncracked dash though.

I had an AZ member screw me over when I was looking for a 6MT Type-S last November.

He got cold feet about selling AFTER I bought x2 International one-way tickets to JFK. I was cordial, though he stopped communicating with me.

Dont buy the 6MT KBP in the Blackmarket.

And that is just from pics. I would steer clear. Probably got oil and trans fluid dripping

For an automatic Type-S? You may need to reconsider your price.

You may be right but I donít see many with that low of miles and looking almost brand new.

If I was looking to spend $10,000 on a used car I donít see any more reliable than mine and with all the options. Not to mention fully kept up with documented maintenance and clear title.

There were 1300 of the 6MT Type-Sí produced in 2008 by my calculations. Why sell a rare piece of Honda history?

There have been many sold within the last year in the same condition as yours, and with similar mileage as well. That said, if I recall correctly, $8,500 was about the max.

I think youíre right. Planned on keeping this car for a while longer and havenít paid much attention to current values. Then Tesla comes out with free autopilot on the Model 3 and tax rebate goes in half this July so Iím pulling the trigger on the Performance edition.

Got to say I have loved this Acura though. Still looks good after a decade and runs like new. Few cars today can say that.
