IS THIS AN SH? QUICK HELP NEEDED.

I'm considering going to view this Prelude tonight so I need an answer ASAP if possible.

http://www.redacrecars.co.uk/car%20d...%20DETAILS.htm

I can't figure out if it's an SH.


The giveaway is the wheels and gear knob.
However, there's a Type S stcker on the back and Motegi kit on it though so I'm confused.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Re: IS THIS AN SH? QUICK HELP NEEDED.

Judging by the wheels it looks like a Base, maybe someone just added the type S badge.

That's what I thought.

I just called the dealer. He tells me it's a BB6.

Re: IS THIS AN SH? QUICK HELP NEEDED.

BB6 is just the model number for a 5th gen lude.

Re: IS THIS AN SH? QUICK HELP NEEDED.

It says it's an Si-R, which means it has a s-spec engine, but true LSD tranny instead of ATTS. They came with the blades and painted sides like that instead of the straight 5's.

Re: IS THIS AN SH? QUICK HELP NEEDED.

Type S front lip, 180km/h speedo, I'd hazard a guess as it being an SiR. Not sure if it's an SiR-S, can't see enough, but buy that thing, fantastic car.

Re: IS THIS AN SH? QUICK HELP NEEDED.

Cool. It's advertised as an Si-R.
If it's a Type S will it definately have the red top engine?

Thanks for all the advice guys. I'm probably gonna get it tonight.
Hopefully I'll get a good part exchange on my old Vectra! :D

Real Type S aren't equipped with a moonroof. Plus that "TYPE S" badge looks like it came off an Integra.

-> real PRELUDE Type S badge looks like this:
