I wouldn't buy anything from a dealership where the guy couldn't answer every question you have about the car. The price is a bit high also. Not sure how much cars usually go for in Australia but the AUD to USD is pretty similar and $6500 here for that car is way too with what it has.

Re: dose this look good to you? or a rip off?

First of all, yes...that car has been lowered. And I really like the color. It looks to be in good condition, but you can't see anything in those low res pics.

As far as the price goes, they are our of their minds. It's about 3 times as much as they should be asking. A fair dealer price on that would be around $2000 US.

Re: dose this look good to you? or a rip off?

The car looks pretty nice, because except for the radio and the wheels, it does not look like it was abused in its operation or its operational configuration by some rev happy tart who likes to screw around with the cars mechanicals. Also at about 133k miles, that car may have a few good years left which is a plus.Before buying don't forget to look at the frame rails under the car to see that they are rust free and strong in addition to the other usual checks.Also take the time to verify that the tires are the right ,because if they are not ,the car will not function ideally on many levels.As far as the price is concerned, its obvious by his asking price the guys looking for a sucker. I would just go to him and offer him a fair price and see if he will take the bait!


Tire sizes for a 1991 Prelude si 4ws from the Tire Rack web site.
195-60 R14
195-55-R15
205-45-R16
205-40-R17

If the tire size on the car is wrong ,then I would not buy the car because the wrong tire size would be a clear indication that the previous owner was a nit wit .


note : Its a SI 4WS so that = WIN

Re: dose this look good to you? or a rip off?

i agree fully with ScubaSteve, if the dealer can't answer every question you have about the car, then they're probably someone you don't want to be dealing with. 133,XXX mi. is pretty low for a 3G Prelude, admittedly...but the price is outrageously high - equivalent to almost $6800 USD, and no one in their right mind charges that much for a 3G unless they're a complete idiot, or they're assuming you are. talk him down to a more reasonable price - somewhere in the neighborhood of $2900 AUD would be more acceptable, the car is in good shape with low miles - but if he won't take it, walk. you will be able to find another one in comparable shape with out getting bent over on the price from someone else, i guarantee it. good luck!
