question on differences between models/regions

a couple of thing have come up in the last week including some posers ive had for a while

which ludes have the side markers in the bumper. i do but ive seen lots that dont.

i have markers between the door and front wheel. lots dont. ive had them out and the cut in the fender looks stamped out like it would from the factory not just a drilled hole for wires.

i was at a meet last week and from all the 5th gens with their hoods up i was the only one that had a heat shield with all kinds of japanese writing on it. no english. is this a jdm hood or something. i spoke to the owners and they hadnt seen one like mine.

im in canada and its a base model. thanks all for any enlightenment.

Re: question on differences between models/regions

I know the Japan vehicles came factory with side markers (between the tire and door) and I think Europe was factory with it as well.

The lights in the bumper are a different story, a lot of people shave those off when they repaint their car because they aren't necessary. Also, I know there is a JDM Bumper that didn't come with those.

The hood heat shield I believe was a factory option, and a lot of people get them now days to protect their carbon fiber hoods so they do not fade quicker or warp.

Re: question on differences between models/regions

All Japanese, UK, and European preludes have this style of side marker:



Heat shield? I take it you mean the brown material thats under the hood and not the exhaust manifold heat shield. The under hood material is again present on all JDM and UK Preludes, I can't speak for the rest of Europe as I dont own one of them


Heat/sound dedening:


After removal:

Re: question on differences between models/regions

Japan, Europe and Australia had no side markers on the bumper. They had side markers on the fenders.

The rest of the world also had side markers on the fenders with a few exceptions (Canada didn't have them, there's a few other countries that didn't have them as well)

USA has side markers on the bumper, therefore no need for them on the fender.

Both 4th and 5th gen Preludes use the same type Stanley side markers for the fenders (as one of the posters above mentioned).

Clear Stanley side markers also exist, rare as hell but they exist.

Stanley = OEM, everything else is fake.
