what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

I'm on my way of buying a 5th gen soon enough and just wanted to see what you guys appreciate or don't like on your 'ludes !

I was also suprised there was no such thread around the web

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

i have a 4th gen and what i like are: no passenger airbag, simple center console with no extra pockets, long dashboard, exterior and interior styling, small backseats, easy to work on, rare to find/see, h/f series brute, unpractical...

so anything normal people don't like...

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

Never seen a white one like mine in my area, comfortable seats, amazing to drive, great overall exterior and interior look/ They should be a two seater instead of four seats and wished it was RWD, but FWD isn't that bad either.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

Pros: Performance, Handling, Styling, Rare, Easy to work on, Unlimited mods, It's a Frickin' PRELUDE!

Cons: Rear seats = non existant/engineering joke, gear ratios (geared very low).

Like the styling, the reliability, handling, and comfort. Dislike the performance (power) and being fwd.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

Dont complain about the rear seats. Thats one of the main reasons you own one. Honda wouldnt have put them on if it werent for insurance reasons. Two seaters cost more for insurance therefore less people would have bought them and honda wanted to make money so they put in two stupid, impractical seats. Feel free to remove them ;)

Def agree with the gear ratio con.. very annoying only being able to get up to 20 in first and having your engine roaring. Oh well

But i love my prelude, lots of power when you need it, nice looking. The only thing i want done is lowering it and get a front lip and some fogs.. after that its gonna look damn sexy!

Haha by summer najee I promise lol. Only cone I can really think of would be FWD. I think if it was RWD it would perform a lil better not to mention I wouldn't have to "drift" corners in rain I could just smash on it whenever n get sideways haha. Other then that the cars my baby. Literally lol. I eat sleep n breathe prelude.

I was going to say this my self...any 2 seater car will cost alot more for insurance.. i believe our ludes are what they call a 2+2 seater. We all know no one is meant to sit in those back seats. But it does give me some room to store a little bit of stuff for short intervals, and is handy alot of times. And one thing i realy love about my 5th gen lude which is quiet random and not very big at all. I LOVE how there is no windshield sprayer nozzles on the hood but they are under the hood. It just gives it one more tiny bit of style that i just love.

Handling? A 63/37 weight distribution is turrible. Lay off the crack.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

Pros:
I love how rare it is, people who don't know Honda ask all the time "is that one of them there civics or accords??" (Alabama accent), performance is nice for stock, handling is great.

Cons:
room for more than two people
I hate trying to haul around my two bros though. If your over 6 feet, those backseats become the bane of your existance.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

Gotta love the look of the 5th gen and the handling. One minor nitpick.. the cup holders.
I always have to alter my shifting motion with a cup in the center console. I sit lower than stock with the S2000 Seats.

She might get mad at me for this...but my girlfriend is now the cup holder. I hate a cup or anything being in my way while shifting. If im alone ill just throw the drink out or get something with a cap so it can go in the seat.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

I just love how all of us who own preludes just love them. I mean its a different breed isnt it?not your typical civic/integra crew. the fact that they are getting harder to find in good condition just makes it more special. these are hondas version of the old school muscle cars of the late 60s. i mean,not sayin they will be an all original 93 vtec selling for 100,000 on barret jacksons block but i think you guys know what i mean. any old school F1 fans will also remember that the late Ayrton Senna was involved in the promotion of the 4th gen vtec while he was still driving for Mclaren Honda.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

pros: quick, sexy, easy to modify, handles great, will out run v8's around my area who like to roll up at stop signs and look down their nose at the "rice-burner"

cons: cup holders are in a TERRIBLE place, automatics SUCK, can't fit an average size person in the back seat comfortably, either them or the person in the front seat WILL be uncomfortable, i dont have the money to mod, i live in an area that you just about CANT drive a lowered car without breakin somethin.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

i have a 98 base model. i love everything about it, how it drives, handles, looks, and the uniqueness of it. as for the back seats, i got rid of that problem with some dynamat, carpet and a custom panel all for around $40.
i wish all of them were made 5speed like the s2ks so we wouldnt have to spend money on a swap haha.

Re: what do you like / dislike about your 'lude ?

-I like driving it a lot. It's easy, the gears seems to match up really well making it much smoother than shifting my Neon.
-I like the gas mileage.
-I like the handling.

-I dislike the rattles mine has. (My headlights have broken tabs so they vibrate and there is something I haven't found yet that also makes a metallic rattling sound at high RPM).
-I dislike that my throw out bearing sounds like a cricket.
-The seat padding is a little weak for long trips.

cupholders? what cuphgolders? yeah I forgot to list what I didnt like. I guess the fact that mine has no cupholder. and the metal sunroof sux too. thats why I got glass one. also the fact that lots of interior parts are no longer abailable in black.
