Hey all: I just got a hold of the Jan. 1999 issue of Best Motoring VCD. Some of you have already seen this. It's pretty entertaining... It has a bunch of side by side tests like drag races and a course, in which the 2.0L manual Altezza goes up against an Integra type R, BMW 328i (I took some screen grabs of this), an Alfa, an Accord, and so on. It culminates in this huge race, and it includes a graphite grey Altezza and a TRD Altezza. It's pretty neat. An interesting part was when it was holding its own against a 2.5L Turbo Skyline. Here are the screen grabs of one of the drags for your enjoyment. If you want to see anything specifically I'll grab em. Later!

why the Chinese subtitles, bought in Hong Kong maybe? I assume that's the 200 hp Altezza 4 cylinder if it's beating the BMW.

Hey, there is another newer issue of Best Motoring VCD (Aug 00) which is about the Accord Euro-R. It compares with other Type R as well as different versions of Altezza.

Yep, it says it's the 4 cylinder 210 hp. There's quite a bit of talking in the VCD so I don't know if I could transcribe the whole thing. But here are some excerpts:

"When you see the four doors, you will be reminded that it is a coupe."

"Why is Civic so fast?"

"Danger! It will really crash!"
