Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

2000 Honda Prelude

I am supposed to go buy this Prelude today, but I really hate the body kit they have on this car.

The price is quite good for the mileage and year, and the car runs and drives nice. The car is super clean, but this body kit is really not my style.

Does anyone know what kind of kit it is, and how are these kits attached? How are would it be to remove a body kit like this and get it back to stock?

Thanks, please help me out on this one. Even if this deal doesn't go through, there are lots of Preludes out there for sale with body kits and I am just curious as to what is involved in putting these things on so I can get it off.

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

Oh, if I buy the car, this kit is DEF. coming off...I hate body kits, and I will be selling the kit online. I also don't like the spoiler. They have 17" SH style wheels on this car and they will be coming off to be sold for stock fan blade rims.

The only thing I am concerned about is how to take the body kit and will there be tons of screw holes in the stock body? If so, then I am going to pass on this car and find a stock one. What do you think?

No all the mounting points used for the WWRS kit are oem meaning they are not visible and you won't see them with the lip kit off. For instance the front lip mounts on tabs UNDER the bumper.. so nobody will see it.

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

But if I take the lip kit off, will I need to buy a new stock bumper, or is the lip kit just a skirt around the stock bumper? ****! I really hate body kits, dont understand why people mess up a stock car.

I guess my question is: if I remove the body kits that you see in the photos, front lip and side skirts, will I need to replace the whole front bumper and side skirts, or does this body kit simply extend what is already there? In other words, will the stock side skirts be underneath this body kit, or if I remove body kit will I then have to go buy OEM skirts?

It extends you wont need a new bumper

the skirts are one peice though so if you take them off youll need oems (or just dont have skirts..)

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

I'm sorry boss, but this is really bugging me. Its a Lipkit. NOT a body kit. Body kits replace the entire bumper, lips are just additions. You will not need to replace the front bumper, you wont even know that the lip was there if they installed it properly. As stated above though the sideskirts will need to be replaced by oem skirts, same for the rear.

sorry it just bugs me that you keep calling it a bodykit when its not. lol.

SH wheels are 16" and are .5" wider than base wheels, The LIP KIT is double sided tape and a few screws...shoulnt really be some kind of hack job.

Body kits are usually bumper replacement..if the LIP KIT bothers you soo much, just go find another car.

It'll look really goofy unless you have OEM skirts and an OEM rear lip lying around, which it doesn't sound like you do.

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

Buy the car and take the lip kit off. I will buy the kit from you and trade you my stock side skirts and rear if you need it. Car is a great price and if it was actually properly maintained then it should be a great deal. If you dont like the lip kit that is just fine everyone has their own taste but I wouldnt pass on this car just because of the lip kit.
For real I will buy this kit from you and have oem replacements to trade.

It doesn't look bad at all, but what ever floats your boat. You'll get more looks with a nice lip kit like that than stock.

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

It's not a body kit..

Sell it to someone on here and get the optional lip.. It's not big and doesn't stick out.. Look on my member ride page and look at the silver lip kit I have.. It's oem.. Look at H and A accesories.com they are like 150 and are already painted

Trade the sh wheels for base wheels+cash and you'll make a lil money

If u don't like the spoiler then take it off and sell it.. They're like 300 something new.. You'll have to cover up the holes on ur trunk though..

U should be able to make a little money and get ur car looking how u want it.. I would suggest looking into getting 05-06 rsx type s wheels..they look they were meant for the prelude

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

I can tell from many of your signature pictures that you must like body / lip kits very much.

I don't have time for a bunch of bolt on / glue on / screw on kits to make the car look fancy. When I was 17, I liked this stuff, but not any more.

The beauty of the Prelude is in it's stock form. The proportions and symmetry of the stock body are grand beyond comparison. Lip kits and non-OEM parts ruin the balanced aesthetics of this fine Asian car.

There is absolutely no point / no functionality / no reason for aftermarket lips / air dam / body kits on any car unless it is a stock car being used on a track. For street cars, these bolt on accessories make the car look like it belongs to a kid and thus hard to re-sell.

There is no way anyone is going to convince me that these type of body add-ons do anything for the car. Any car dealer will tell you that they only make a car harder to sell, and most of the time these mods are done by amateurs and don't fit right. Ground clearance for a particular car is always hindered by these silly contraptions. Why? Because proper, normal ground clearance is calculated at the factory to allow for certain clearances to exist. Why? Because there is no reason to be dragging your front end every time you pull into the parking lot. It is pointless and lame. The car is not lower; the bolt on parts are too low to allow for proper clearance per manufacturing specs.

When I go to look at a car, I find something particular to dislike about the car before I get there. In this case, it was the body kit. I made sure to tell the owner that I didn't like it. Why? Because you have to be honest with yourself and with the seller. Did he get mad? No, he doesn't care - if I don't want it I don't have to buy it. But it always helps to be honest.

What I really want is a 99-01 dark green base 5sp Prelude in excellent shape with less than 130K, for less than $5500, with no mods or add ons, stock radio.

I won't be happy until I find that. I was thinking about buying this Prelude, and I still might, but the first thing I will do will be to remove all body & lip kit add ons and destroy them so no one else can use them. I will then engage myself in the rims and tires, hopefully scrapping these in exchange for some fan blade stock rims.

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

yea the only thing you will need will be the two oem garnish assembly side sills. They are pretty expensive for about 314 a piece from the dealer. If you get them from a place like hondaautomotivepart.com you can get them for 220 a pop. And whats nice is that they do come painted if you have a stock paint job. But dont be hating on the lip kits.

First you say: "Oh, if I buy the car, this kit is DEF. coming off...I hate body kits, and I will be selling the kit online."

Then You say:

My question is why would you destroy the lip kit? First off the kit is no longer in production and if the kit that is on that car is in fact authentic it could be worth a little $. Second I offered to buy them from you for cash and offered to trade my stock side skirts. Why cant I enjoy the aero pieces? Last, Lip kits were offered as a dealer installed accessory. Honda makes the lip kits and still to this day installs them on their new oem cars. The kit that is on this specific car is an aftermarket one but it was made by a top company Wings West. Also I sell new and used Hondas and if one comes in with a lip kit (like an 08 Fit Sport which went in one day) they are not hard to sell and do add to the cars value. I understand your opinions on the topic and while i do not share your opinions I believe you are entitled to them. However, you are being a little unreasonable by saying that you will destroy the lip kit.

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

But I usually like to engage a Prelude in a particular sense.

AS far as destroying the lip kit, I might repent of that and opt to go a more practical route, i.e. selling it. Apparently, there is someone who might come with the money tonight and buy the car anyway, so it might not be a problem.

I am also supposed to enter into a dialog with a guy who has a 1-owner black on black base 2001 Prelude with 5sp, and only 80K on it; the problem is that he is asking $9500 for that one. The best part about it is the fact that it has no aftermarket body parts on it, and even has the original stock radio. A true unmolested classic.

Anyone who goes in a does mods on these cars ought to take effectual care that they don't go so far so as to destroy the stock ethos of their car.

What I usually recommend when I am counseling with someone about a car purchase or sale is that they always go for the BONE STOCK example, and build cautiously from there. If I am going to look at a car with a counselor, then I usually ask them to include a similar warning or admonition to me whilst I shop; that I might not be seduced with gaudy aftermarket fool's gold; that I might be diligently engaged and with full engagedness of mind and spirit so as to not be swayed to an extremely modified example of a fine car.

I think your putting to much thought into this, geez. Take the LIP KIT off and just sell it and enjoy the car for what it is. It's that simple. Just because a prelude isnt stock doesn't mean it's not valuable and ****in sweet. To each there own homie.

Re: Trying to buy a Prelude...but I hate the body kit..please help

this thread so full of butt hurt its pathetic. if you dont like the car, move on. youre talking about not wanting to buy a modded car whatsoever, even though you were trying to mod out your accord to try to get more for it? its a LIP KIT, not a turbo kit, not some other crazy sh*t. id preferably want to buy a car with a LIP KIT, considering id be saving myself from spending that much more when id buy it anyway. youre also talking that your not "17 anymore" either. it doesnt matter anyway, because if you didnt buy that car already, the posting has been deleted. stop contradicting yourself too.

jist of it: dont like it, dont buy it. and get facts straight

THANK YOU!!!!! Lmao. I completely agree. Luckily that posting was deleted. I hope he didnt buy it cos I wouldve killed myself listening to this guy call a $700 lip kit a body kit waaaaaaay after everybody told him its not a damn body kit.
