Re: dash

You don't like the dash? That's what makes our cars stand out. The dash is universal throughout the 4G and there is no other "direct fit" replacement. If you don't like the gauges, you can buy the EL gauges and install them. It doesn't change the dash at all though, just the look of the cluster. If you hate it that much, make an aluminum dash or sell your lude to someone who will appreciate it.

Re: dash

LOL Randall! Indeed sir!


The dash WILL grow on you if you are a true 4th Gen Fanatic. It is like driving in a capsule. I have been test driving some other vehicles lately and none of them give me the same "comfort" as our cars do.

Re: dash

Agreed. When I bought nmy 92 last year at first I didn't appreciate the odd look of it. But It does grow on you. It is one of the things that sets our cars apart and I know if I ever trade ill miss it.

Re: dash

You know why I love my 92' dash? Every time a friend gets in the passenger seat, they look at me and say, "Woah! I feel like I'm in space bro!" and I always casually turn and look to them to say, "That's because my Prelude is a spaceship bitch..." :)

lol!
The prelude is a work of art. i think all the cosmetics in the interior and every gauge and button and instrument cluster flows beautifully and looks great kept stock, the way it was intended.
Yeah the dash on the 4g's is really kick ass looking. I also kinda like the new civic si dashes too a lil more refined than the 4g prelude. Either way! The 4g dash is epic ;)
Im all for people adding their own touch to their cars, but the 4g dash? "-____-" To each his own i suppose.
