Icon2 Trying to decide....HELP ME!

I have a silver 97 prelude and i think i want to add a front lip. any suggestions on which one to get? i sorta like the Greddy one, but im just not too sure...

here's my ride http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3149285 check her out.

also any suggestions for a bolt-on cat?

and fog lights that dont cost $200+ dollars?

I'm a poor college student :(

Re: Trying to decide....HELP ME!

you can prob find some USDM fogs for sale on one of the forums for about or under $200. keep your eyes open.

and for the lip get the GREDDY lip.

and being a college student is a good reason to be broke!! lol

Re: Trying to decide....HELP ME!

if anything buy the ones without the amber insert inside of it, that way you wont have the amber insert (obv) but also if you chose to take it out you wont have that dark shade inside.

Re: Trying to decide....HELP ME!

thanks for the offers guys! unfortunatly, new tail lights arent on the top of my "want-to-buy" list right now. Im more interested in my exhaust, fog light search, and front lip search. but still, thank you for the offers :) i love this site!

as for the emblems, if you just want the original ones, you can get them at a dealership (may be pricy). If you dont mind getting them used, try and check junkyards to see if they have any leftovers that are in good condition.
They also have the Red emblem honda signs that are nice too. Ebay has them for cheap sometimes.

Re: Trying to decide....HELP ME!

i would not advise getting the GReddy front lip they break very easily. i know it says urethane but trust me they break easy i shattered mine. try and find something in ABS plastic.

Re: Trying to decide....HELP ME!

yo... zbucy... as far as cat... are they strict on inspections out there..??? i would just go straight pipe and put a defouler in place w/ the secondary O2 sensor. as far lips go...
i did break mine... but i also fixed it. but i bet you can find a cheap oem or even a type s somewhere. sorry but 400- for a two lips is not worth it IMO. ask bill to look around for you he has been pricing out lip kits for months ... i bet he came across something.

Re: Trying to decide....HELP ME!

bahhh this thread is so old...

anyway, i do have to do emissions test here, which requies a cat, so i just went with a shtty obx high flow cat for now and a skunk2 catback and a ractive header


as far as lips go, im going to go for the oem kit before i paint the car this summer. i gave up on all the other ones
