Icon7 Just joined the 4th Gen club... J-Spec BB1 Honda Prelude Si VTEC

Hey!

So after selling my filthy 'S' grade 89' Prelude a few months ago I have been without a ride. Until now. This is what I picked up:

Japanese Import 1992 Honda Prelude Si VTEC (BB1) -

- H22A 2.2L VTEC Engine
- 4WS
- ABS
- Traction Control (Yes actual factory, switch on / switch off Traction Control)
- Climate Control
- Cruise Control
- Rear Window Wiper
- Retractable Mirrors
- 136,000 KM on the clock

The car is super clean in and out. Looks like it just rolled out of Honda. All electrics function (bar an electric window and a small problem with the 4WS light). Has original everything. Not a speck of rust. Paint is fresh and clean. Engine looks brand new. Cambelt just done, registered and warrented...

All this for $2000 NZ (Approx $1400 US). Brought from an asian student who wanted a quick sale as he was returning to China.

I purchased it completely oblivious as to how special the BB1 model is and obviously the owner was just as blind as I was to sell it for the price that he did.

(Will try to get some engine pics up sometime.)

Nice pickup!! best of luck with the new Lude!

...there's nothing wrong with automatics, I prefer autos...sometimes you just want to cruise instead of shifting all day long.

Yeah thanks! The auto in this one is not so bad, esp. if you press the 'sports mode' button. The gear shifts change at where I would change them in a manual.

That's a damn good deal. JDM is dirt cheap (from what I hear) in NZ. I'm jealous.

BB1s are evrywhere in uk, its BB4 that are the sort after models here, you love rear wipers, lots over here take em off, Mines BB1 with 4WS removed. UK lot like the BB4 as its a tad lighter.

Just goes to show the grass is always greener on the other side.

Get some pics up, love snooping at other peoples ludes :)
