My First Prelude (no pics)

Hey everyone ! I just got my first prelude today. BUT idk how i feel about it :(. The owner told me it has an aem intake, dc headers, blox full racing exhaust. I went to get it smogged today and I was told the headers might be an illegal part. So now I may have to get the smog bypassed for $150. Also, the car is dropped low and I can't even park it in my garage or something underneath the car scrapes across my driveway. Im hoping my first impressions of this car dont last too long...

See if the car has coilovers so that you can raise it to get in the garage. Lets see some pics of the car...

Re: My First Prelude (no pics)

Most dc headers are carb legal from what Ive read. Have you tried going to another emissions testing site? I may be wrong tho.

TRUE DAT!!!

you shoulda done a little more research BEFORE picking up the car. I know everyone else here loves a shiny set of DC Sports headers opening up their H/F series'. I'm ALWAYS down for a slammed ride But that just may not be your cup o tea?? You've just gotta work out the bugs you don't like about that specific car and I hope you don't give preludes a bad rep. I've owned mine for a week and I'll have to say... I love it :D

Lets see some pics man!!!

SORRY EVERYONE! Scratch that... I love my prelude. I wanted a perfect car, but theres a joy you get when you fix up all the little mistakes. $200 smog. $65 to fix the a/c. $110 12" ma audio sub with black maxx amp. And small simple fixes like replacing the inside door handle. replacing missing screws. repainting the front lip. etc etc. Im now prepping it for a complete paint job. Heres a picture !



The picture doesnt show all the minor defects of the exterior. It is mostly on the front and rear bumpers. Im going to repaint the whole car white, but the roof black. Type M rear add ons. idk what else, but it will be a very exciting project. Yesterday was Day 1 and i lens painted my tail lights and started sanding the rear bumper...

Also, there are coilovers, so they are adjustable! However, I am now used it. I actually wish I could lower it even more, but the exhaust already stands lower than the sideskirts. It isnt a problem when i'm driving. I just wish I can park it in my garage :(. I believe I will start updating this thread with my cars updates on this paint job project. SO STAY TUNED!
