I'm not a fan of black on silver, and really not a fan of black wheels. However, it's your car, and whatever you like should be how you do it. I do think the addition of the spoiler is a good idea however.

Re: Opnion on the changes im making to the prelude

I have to agree with Phantom240 on the wheels. Every time I see black wheels I always just assume the person lost their hub caps at first. But if you like it, then go for it bro. Don't let us stop you.

I think you should do wha tmakes you happy, and not worry about what anybody else thinks. We all have our own cars to make us happy.

Re: Opnion on the changes im making to the prelude

If ur talking about getting your hood painted black.....dont do it. Get a cf hood. If u have it painted black it will just make it look like u were too broke to buy a cf hood. Thats the only thing I would do differently

i agree, alot of people like to just paint there hood and trunk black and call it a day, on silver i really think thats a bad idea, CF has a lighter and cooler look that any regular black hood. if you have the cash, get a CF hood. also, i have the nordic mist colored prelude its silver on sunny days and i tried a black hood and trunk, its not all that great looking, as for the wheels, go with something that stands out more if you like. but overall its your choice and if it suits your needs then go for it

it depends on if he is getting the whole thing painted black, or just the area between the hood lines..

Re: Opnion on the changes im making to the prelude

I'm with everyone else on the silver and c/f. But I think you should get a set of rims that stick out more. Maybe some rota j-mags, circuit 8-10's, or save up and get some baller rims.
