Icon2 Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

Hey guys so here's the deal, wanting to get a body kit for my 4th gen Prelude, but nothing over the top (i definitely DONT want anything ricey) just something thats a bit different from all the other preludes driving around, something more modest hah.. Something that can also improve my running temp? Thanks guys!

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

I would suggest whatever BK you decide on just make sure that you install it with quality work. I think that what makes things about BK's Ricey is if its installed poorly, when lines dont match up, to obnoxious, and not painted! lol. Unless you design one yourself its gonna look something like some one elses lude. Wish you luck with your BK. Also make sure you get a good quality BK and not a cheap one cause there hard to take care of.

Get a lip kit. It's cheaper and cleaner IMHO. Just my $.02

Agreed. The most common piece of advice that u'll hear about a body kit is gonna be not to do it lol. Lip kits are half the cost and really enhance the body lines. Its ur car tho so do what u like. Just sayin as far as advice on which body kit to get ur pretty hard pressed for answers bc %98 of ppl don't like them

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

Well where do I get lip kits? And what do they actually do? It's mainly the front bumper I'm not entirely impressed with, I just want to make it look a little more bulky at the front? Thanks guys for the input

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

U can find lips anywhere. Ebay (be careful there are a lot of knock offs). Really just depends on which one(s) u would want. the Wings west race series or WWRS is popular but hard to find. Also Mugen kits look really good but ur gonna have to sell a kidney to pay for it n good luck findin it lol. As for front I personally love the spoon replicas and the whole kaminari kit is really nice too. Downfall to the kaminari is that the front is fiberglass not polyurethane so it'll break if ur not careful. aero kits are cool too but also hard to find. Just search 92-96 prelude lip kits and see what u like bro

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

your not gonna get much advice from anybody on any forum about body kits man, its not 2001 any more body kits are expensive, ugly, break easily and ruin the look and body lines of the sexy prelude.. just get a lip kit, jdm lights, rims and lower and call it a day =] just saying

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

the best body kit i know (and TRULY LOVE) is the buddyclub half bumper. OMG it changes the total appearance of the front fascia.

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

Alright sounds like a lip kits the way to go then, ok so how much would a lip kit cost? What do they include? Can someone send me links to pictures of lip kits? I don't really know what they are that's all :S sorry guys just wanting your input

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

IMHO you gotta think of it like this also, If your looking for something different for your lude and EVERYONE is recommending a LK cause they have one, where does it make sense to get a lip kit like everyone else? Just sayin. I like both but rock a BK

Re: Body Kit Adice Prelude 4th Gen!

im not against the BK (if its done right) but for DD and if you plan on lowering, i wouldn't do it just because it is high maintenance. but if you've got the pocket book to keep it up and not let it become trashy, then i say goffer'it!!! then you'll get a +1 from me for being different and not fallowing what everyone says. sure lip kits are sweet IMO but the only reason i don't rock a body kit is because i'm broke lol, so i'll just stick with my PU lip haha!!
