JDM 5th gen Prelude Type S being imported to Canada

Well now that its about to reach 15 years old, its safe to say it'll be the first one to land in North America? legally at least lol...(canada = vehicle has to be 15+ years old to be able to import).

Anyways thought you guys might like to see. And if anyone in western canada is interested, maybe buy it? please? lol, bring it to PZ. If I had the money id scoop it up in a heart beat...dayumit, hate being a poor student.

I'm pretty positive it won't be the first Type S in America legally. Sucks they took the whole Navigation system out and replaced it with that crap stock radio

If i'm not mistaken... they are legal to import as is.


Bumper supports, windshield, headlights and tail lights are the only things that MIGHT need to be changed to be deemed road legal in some states.



I forget his name on here- but on HT there's a member that recently sold his legit white type s (from florida) to a guy in VA. That's where it resides atm.

Re: JDM 5th gen Prelude Type S being imported to Canada

campbell has one as a daily driver in the us currently, and it's legit. I'm pretty sure there are more than just his.
brian also has two conversions.

Really nice. Though I don't think I'd ever get used to being on the right side of the car lol.

You probably can, but might have trouble with drive thrus or passing someone on the street, but other than that. Not really a problem I would say. You'll definitely turn heads though. I plan to do a RHD conversion, but if I can get a Type S, then I'll just sell my current one and get one.

left hand turns at major intersections would suck. Unless you have a passenger or wait for a green arrow... lol
