Re: rsx S vs prelude SH

I'd say stick w/ur lude. Preludes look better imo. Dnt get me wrong RSXs r cool but preludes have better body lines. And I think they look sportier too. So that being said the only real reason for the trade would be for the k motor. So if that's what u want y not k swap ur lude?

Re: rsx S vs prelude SH

If it were a totally straight, bone stock, taken car of that someone could produce any kind of info on the history then yes...if an rsx is your thing....its definately not mine. This looks like a total boner that's trying to hose someone with a bunk car and he's too dumb to even properly sell someone on it. Or its a pile, he knows it, and he's padding his shorts with a C.Y.A. variety Depends.

Re: rsx S vs prelude SH

7K CASH ONLY? Yep, they're probably gonna mug you when you show up, so... 5-6 cars with people just in case. (or this guy doesn't live in reality) Keep your prelude.
