Re: Prelude im looking at 1999

HELL YEAH MAN, nighthawk black pearl is THE ONLY way to go! Get a honeycomb grill, and your set! Then once you get it, ship me the sideskirts and rear lip for $250.

look at "the nighthawk." She is gorgeous. Don't you want something like that?

Re: Prelude im looking at 1999

The mileage is a bit high, but if the carfax is clean, and you plan on modifying a few things, then go for it. But, if you think the place that's selling it is kinda sketchy, and something doesn't feel right, then don't do it. Ask questions, and get it looked at by a mechanic. If all is well, then go for it. ASK FOR THE CARFAX!!!

Sorry, in my first post I got a little excited... I paid over 9 grand for mine, and that one is selling for less than 4 grand. Black is amazing when its clean, its just hard to keep it clean.

Good luck and only the best!

Re: Prelude im looking at 1999

Well there's nothing obviously wrong with it that I can see, if it drives well and seems to be in good condition, worth looking at (if you don't mind the mileage)

Re: Prelude im looking at 1999

At least check it out. But I'd be a little critical on it. I mean it has a random cai, which could hint to it being beaten, and with such high miles...I dunno but for 4k it isn't bad at all, just needs a grill and front lip.

Edit: oh and the features list on that post is ridiculous. Judging form that I'd watch out for B.S. from the salesman. Seems like the kind of guy that will tell you it has the vtech(yes vtech) motor 20 million times...just sayin, I'm sure being around pz you know your stuff, but I doubt the salesman does...

You mean it has a random SRI not a cai lolz. Had to do it sorry.

Anyway to the OP, That car does have a lot of miles, and can't be proven that they are highway miles. Definitely test drive it and look into bringing a friend(car inclined) or mechanic to come with you to look at it. Looks clean in the pictures, but you could be very surprised at what it will really look like in person.

Edit: Also has an aftermarket shift knob.
