Not enough information. If the Acura is as nice as you say it is and the '82 supra is as shitty as most are, I'd trade.

Good car, nothing special. They aren't worth much. The trans will probably fail if it hasn't already.

I wouldn't trade any lower mile or very clean mk2 for one ever.

FWFW I daily an 06 TL, which I love....but its a common GOOD CAR....not much else....hardly a future classic.

The Acura 3.0/3.2 motors are interference type engines, a high mileage motor will need a timing belt, Acuras' parts alone will run you $300-$400 at least, dealer cost for R&R for a timing belt is $1400 (my daughters car is a '99 CL 3.0) shops will charge $800-$900. And the auto trans in these cars can be suspect if proper maintenance wasnt performed since day one

IMO a Supra as a daily driver is very economical compared to the Acura...for example just to change the power steering belt you have to remove the serpetine belt AND the front motor mount...

Positives, great mileage on the freeway 28mph+ lots of power, drives very nice, plently of bells and whistles, heated seats, auto AC, moon roof, leather, LARGE trunk...

Cons expensive to repair, and parts too...

man.....I knew I could count on all you good people for honest quick answers !!
valued my car @5500 his at 2200 cash+trade.

My car needs nothing to drive for a long time, his...well, as you say, timing service, tranny etc. etc. I JUST FOUND OUT THE EXTERIOR IS GOLD :throwup:

Thanks again, I have always been fascinated with the Acura cars, just have never researched or owned one.

I am way dangerous when bored
