Re: What should i do?

You're comparing three totally different vehicles there.

Firstly, you're on a Prelude forum, I can tell you 90% of members will tell you to go the Prelude. If you don't think you need four doors, then yes, go with the Prelude. IF you do need four doors, go the SRT-4. If you just wanna go fast, go with the GSX-R.

Re: What should i do?

I hate to say this ... but keep your 4g as a half decent gas sipper.

Get the SRT4. With minor mods on the stage 1 turbo (which 90% of them are) you can easily hit 13's flat in the 1/4 mile. With the stage 2 turbo (which are hard enough to find) I'm pretty sure its a 12.9 car STOCK. Stage 3 is too retarded rare to find so dont attempt.

My vote would be SRT4 (even though they are over rated ) with basic bolt ons. I know that no one on here will vouch for it b/c its up against a 5g 5spd lude, but an SRT4 is a quick little car.

Re: What should i do?

um hello... like everyone else said. you're on a prelude board, so of course the majority of us are gonna say prelude. BUT. if you want an unbiased opinion. i still say prelude. srt-4, reguardless of the fact its a fast car, its still a neon. and neons suck. its ugly, they only managed to squeeze 240hp out of 15lb 2.4L... cmon. LAME. yea they are easily modded. but ****, notice how you don't see any on the road lately. its cuz they're all broken.

the bike.... good choice. i have to agree with freddy, or justin, or what ever he likes to go by. hehe lol. great on gas. but i don't know, not practical IMO. that is, unless you plan on keeping the prelude and you just want it for a fun weekend driver or something to help keep the miles off the prelude.

prelude. hm.... you already have one. granted its older and slower.... but it gets better gas mileage. practical yes. stylish yes. excellent car for the money, yes. great track record.......... all in all, its a great car you can't go wrong with. need i say more.

so even the unbiased opinion still favors the prelude. granted i was a little biased against the neon..... but everything i said about it is true.

Re: What should i do?

The reason i want to get a new car is cause mine is old and needs quite a bit of work.
both upper ball joints on the front need replaced. has a fair oil leak. interior needs some work. engine has 189xxx miles on it. not great gas mileage at all. needs tires.
Could a Mod take off the srt-4 for me?

dude. A bike cant be drivin almost at all during winter if you live in areas with snow. Driving in the rain is one of the dumbest ideas ever. SRT4 is the best option there. Keep your lude as a decently agile car, with decently high gas milage. The SRT4 you can drive in any condition if need be, and they are pretty powerful with basic bolt ons (like I said before).
