Genuine Motegi or not??

Hey all, new to site and looking to buy a 1997 2.2 vti motegi.

It has the motegi kit, red top engine, full beige leather, 4ws, vtec stickers on sides.

It doesnt have a motegi badge on back though...

Without being at car is there anything else it should have as a motegi model?

Cheers, Jase

TBH, I'm not sure many of us North American luders will be of a lot of help to you. You may want to check out preludeuk though.

Honda Prelude UK :: Index

Those guys actually get to see motegis, unlike us here in the states.

Hi, the Motegi kit was an optional bodykit that all UK 5G's had the option of (even the 2.0L). The 97-98 UK Preludes came with the black top 185bhp H22a5 engine, only the 99-00 manual Ludes came with the red top 197bhp H22a8. Not all cars that were spec's with the Motegi kit came with the badge on the back (it was an optional extra). As said the Motegi was essentailly a body kit upgrade (you could get he Motegi suspension that is lowered by 25mm, but again not all Motegi's have this). The Motegi 5G's are mechanically idential to regular non-Motegi Preludes.

The only Ludes to have the red interior are JDM SIR's.

Re: Genuine Motegi or not??

i found this on wikipedia i dunno if u already knew about it but here it is

Motegi Prelude featured an OEM Honda body kit, 17" Honda alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension and a Motegi badge on the boot lid. All of these items were optional on non-Motegi models with the exception of the boot lid badge.

^^^ this.. SiR's are the only models w/ red int. otherwise know as TYPE-S SiR.

one thing to add to the Motegi.. it did come with the optional motegi honda prelude 17" wheels ( i think if not 16") and it came in a strange metallic yellowish color, that only the motegi color code recieves.

The whole point of it being the Motegi edition, is not just the lip kit, because that lip comes on the TYpe-S version of the prelude too..

the motegi specs are not only the engine/susp. set up, but the wheels, the type-s lip kits, and the paint. If it has all those, along with merlin's input, you would have a geniune Motegi Edition Prelude.. it is a possibility that it was one of the ones that came with Gold Edition badges also..

Re: Genuine Motegi or not??

The Motegi has noting to do with paint or engine, all colours were available for all 5G's. The Motegi front lip was only avialable on the Motegi, the Motegi sides are the same as the optional sides available in the US & Japan.

Like everything in the Motegi kit, bits were avaible to buy without having to purchase the whole kit, thats why you see cars with the lip kit with out the lowered suspension or badge. The 17" twinspoke wheels were avaiable for any VTi Prelude, they are present on all 99-01 UK VTi's as at that time the Lude got given a short ratio gearbox. For example, my 2000 VTi as it was when it left the factory:



Sorry this is big:

well.. i stand corrected but i don't know much about the VTi.. i figureed The Motegi color codes, prob were given to the Vti also.. but i didn't want to go as far to say that cause im in the US.. Yes 17" twinspokes are available.. but considering they come with the Motegi "M" symbal on the center cap.. leads me to believe that they were specifically made as a part of the motegi version.. but of course they were made available as an option for the others.. that just wouldnt be fair to us!!

"Prelude Motegi

Honda also released a special edition fifth generation Prelude, called Motegi. The name of this special edition derives from the ‘twin-ring Motegi’ motor-racing circuit, located in Haga District, Tochigi, Japan. This track was built in 1997 by Honda as part of their effort to bring the IndyCar series to Japan.

The Motegi edition Prelude featured an OEM Honda body kit, 17" Honda alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension and a Motegi badge on the trunk lid. All of these items were optional on non-Motegi models with the exception of the trunk lid badge."
