3rd Gen custom parts..?

Hi Guys
I'm writing from Ireland, I own a 1991 (3rd Gen) 2.0 16v 4ws Prelude.... In beautiful orginal condition...

But as for dress-up/add-on parts for the prelude on this side of the "Big Pond" they is nothing.... all the nice add-ons etc start with the 4th Gen's...

Can anyone please point me to any companies in the USA that sell "nice stuff" for my 3rd Gen

I'm thinkin of "Lexus" style rear lights...clear side indicator lenses etc etc....
Again at all to do with the 3rd Gen Lude

Any information and advice on the subject would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Ian

Dude, lexus style taillights look cheesy, tacky, and ricey. They make clean cars look ghetto. Keep the stock ones. My advice would be to keep the thing as clean as possible, and maybe get some different alloys, but keep it OEM. I'm a fan of the 'fat five' GSR wheels from 94 integras. They look great on almost anything. Basically, keep it looking 'stock'ish. If it looks like it COULD have come from the factory that way, you're doing it 'right'.

appreciate the advice Cash68...
As it stands the only Mod i've made is the wheels (17" alloys) which look great... but over here there is nothing for 3rd Gen Ludes...

All the mods and add-ons seem to start with 4th Gen ludes

I understand where your coming from... and I would what to keep her virtually standard... but I just wanted to know if the American market has anything for the 3rd Gen...as over here there is nothing

I would like to see if there is, so I can have a look

if you can or anyone else canpoint me in the right diection it would be apprecited

Cheers
Ian

If you look hard enough, you can find companies that make stuff for our 3rd gens.

Firstly, Lexus/altezza lights for the 3rd gen. do not exist. THANK THE GOOD LORD!!! ---Lexus/Altezza lights are so 5 years ago but i think you guys across the pond are fond of them...so just to let you know, the US trends are changing. We're ditching body kits, lights and silly wings. Now, people focus on performance more than ever... *sigh. Im old now


Here's a few companies who make stuff for us, still:

Tokico/Koni - for shocks/struts
Eibach, H&R, Neuspeed, Intrax, Suspension Techniques - for springs/coilovers
LSD Motor sports- www.lsdmotorsports.com/ intakes/exhausts/Clutches/Turbo manifolds etc.
Cusco - for front strut bars
Pace setter - for exhaust
Chikara/Hedman - exhaust header

Of course, you wont have aftermarket support like the Honda Civic has, or like the Honda spaceship...errr...i mean Honda Prelude 4th gen

Search around, check out my sig for a good chunk of information on 3g's.

Welcome aboard, glad to have you...let's all raise a pint for the 3rd gens!

The mugen wing, body kit and lights for the 3GP were the coolest, illest, most awesome items ever offered for our cars. I bet if you find some, you'll have everyone on here and all other boards licking your sack.

+1 for awesome apperance/aerodynamic items
