I saw a beautiful Integra parked in Manhattan today (W. 74th St.), purple or violet or something like that. In perfect shape too. I was walking along and in a real hurry and stuff :D but I had to stop and look. I don't do that very often for a car. Chicks yes :D but not cars.

I've never seen any Acura in that color before. I wonder if it was a "mod."
Anybody know if Integras ever came in a color like that?

sounds like your talking about Super Sonic Blue Pearl. It came on the gsrs (can't remember what years)
not my car

If it's not that color it was custom.

If you mean the car that appears on the page that comes up right away, that's not it. The color showing up there looks really like just blue to me, very similar to the Arctic Blue TSX. This one was a definite violet-purple, probably closer to violet.

GREAT pics, AC!

And well done, Tony -- ya got me!


Those pics from AC really tell the story, although I must admit it's a shocker that what looked so violet out on the street can look so "Arctic Blue" in some of the pics.
AC's pics really show the difference between the two colors though.

....and the Teg really does look different in AC's two pics of it. The top one looks blue, the bottom one looks violet.

Tony, I wonder if he might be right.....
(i.e. that Dark Violet Pearl is another color)

I googled this phrase:

Integra "Dark Violet Pearl"

....and 33 matches came up, with the exact phrase "Dark Violet Pearl."


FWIW here's what the first google page looks like:

The dark violet blue was only made for one year. Availible on the '00 gsr (I had to look up the year, it's even more rare then the ssbp) so that could've been the color you saw also.The ones that have the color flip to them are the '98, '99 gsr's Super Sonic Blue Pearl (commonly just typed as sspb for another google search) color code B-90P.

couple threads.

http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=833539

http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=750923 (theres a pic on the 2nd page of this one that really shows the purple)

guess we have no way to know which one you saw :D

I'm betting it was the one that EPD said.
I was never really convinced that the other color looked like what I saw, but I realized it was possible.

BTW I wasn't very scientific about that "google research" -- I shoulda also looked how many matches come up for Integra Super Sonic Blue Pearl.
FWIW, it's only 24. If you combine SuperSonic into 1 word (which google suggests), you get 72 more. So it looks like both "SSBP" (which is what I think Tony meant, rather than SSPB but who's counting :D ) and "DVP" were Integra colors.

Also BTW, Integra SSBP gives 117 matches.
Integra SSPB -- 5 matches.
Integra DVP -- thousands, but it's something else.

Definitely a SSBP Integra you saw in NY. I had one -- actually TWO -- a '98 GS-R that disappeared from my work parking lot --while I was inside working -- four months after I got it. Replaced it with a '99 gee-zer -- same SSBP color -- ok, call me crazy. Thankfully was able to hold onto that one for 4+ years. Always had to be careful where I left it though. That car, in that color, attracted A LOT of attention -- both good and bad. Anyway, my point is that EVERYONE thought the car was purple -- from the day I bought it! Under lights at night, the purple just popped! It was a helluva factory paint job -- and turned lots of heads.

I used to miss that car -- until I replaced it with my '04 TSX.

Speaking of which, I mentioned on this site a few weeks back a rattle/ticking noise coming from the rear deck of the car . After some unsuccessful attempts with my dealer, I called Acura Cust. Svc. They took immediate notice of my complaint, and located a dealer in my area that they claimed could fix the problem. The rattle was identified in the rear strut tower -- as has been noted before on this site -- and although it took 1 1/2 days, was found and FIXED! It's gone! There are other rattles in the car -- particularly the front doors -- but they are slight. The one in the shock tower was absolutely BRUTAL. But its gone now, and I am now beginning to fully enjoy my TSX again. Amen.
