I won't even give you a clue, but I don't even think many of you would be squealing donor car.

At least I did not see a child seat strapped in the back. That has the Darwin stamp of approval all over it.

Does the fact that it is a Hyundai make it the worst Kia ever?

Hyundai's coupe powers the right wheels and has tarbo-booster.

Kia's is a properly-priced Civic.

I thought the "active rear steering" was a neat feature.

What was "best" was the owner supplied rear hub/bearing/rotor won't even fit that car. That was a 4-lug unit (likely off an older RD Tib or Elantra) and his car is a 5-lug. So much fail... so little time. That car needed to be take out behind the shop and put out of it's misery.

those are integra wheels. Had them (stock not painted) on my 96 teg. One of the lightest stock wheels IIRC.

Those don't look anything like factory wheels...

Not possible. GK Tibs (03-08) are all 5 bolt. (5x114.3) and NO integra ever came with that nasty wheel.

What was the 5-lug on the ITRs?

But the customer-provided rotor they showed in the video was 4-bolt.

DC2 Tegs could be had with 5x114.3.

Only the Type-R had 5 lug. If you've seen an LS GS RS or GSR variants with 5 lug then someone went through the trouble of swapping over to the type-r equipment.

This.... I've spent the last 6+ years selling parts and service for these vehicles. No Type-R came with those wheels.

Sorry, i have no idea what the wheels look like (websense), and i wasn't doubting you. Was just responding to the 5-bolt comment.

I never said integra's weren't available in 5-bolt, but they were such limited numbers and none were chrome, E36 M3ty looking 17's.
