not sure why honda drivers swap for acura, prolly to feel sophisticated, but acura drivers swap to honda logos cause in japan there is no acura. Acura Integras are Honda Integras etc.

Edit: Quick answer, its JDM

I think is dumb as **** and what's even worse for some reason they think that such emblem adds a couple of hundred horses to the car. From what Ive seen JDM is built at higher specs than what is sell in our market, but whats the point of "looking like", for that might as well stick a 12" sausage in your pants a walk around like your a walrus . I just think is moronic, I dont want to hate on honda because they are a very reputable company but Ive always seen civics and what not as transportation vehicles nothing more than that and what really kills it is most of the population that drive such cars are Aholes who think they own the words- which also makes me wonder where the attitute came from.

There's a difference between an Integra with a Honda emblem (comes that way in country of origin) and a Mustang with stickers from Honda and Nissan models.

Acura to Honda, maybe. But there is no excuse for Honda to Acura. I think its just as bad as the Mustang if not worse. to u sir.
