    Thumbs up June COTM - **CUL8R**

    So i got the car all of two and a bit years ago, had to drive all the way to albury to find the one i was looking for. Bone stock i always knew the preludes sleak lines were too nice to mess with except my dream of the GReddy lip began an epic saga where no mods were enough.
    Took me about 5months of exploring various avenues and finally found my dream kit, all finally on the pool table at home i was as giddy as a school girl dressing up for her first date.lol. From there power was next in mind so i decided to test the waters with as far as i know, the first S300 unit fit in a 5th gen here in aus. Took many extra hours and a couple sessions to the casino to finally source one, fit it and tune.
    The car itself must be cursed, 5 hit and runs, 1 friend reversing into it stoned and one possum at 110Kph has left me going back to my boys at VFL master body works over and over and over again.
    Had a huge last 8 months where everythings going to shambles so ive just got mods on the floor, all intentions of a full rebuild one day...

    What's you're Favourite Mod?

    Definatly the GReddy front lip, the only genuine one here in Aus really makes the car one of a kind.

    If you had you're time to redo everything again what would you do or not do?
    The only thing i would change in my modifying would possibly be the exhaust setup, something straighter would be nice. Oh i woulda never got that stupid VAFC2 either! what a waste of money that was.

    How long have you had the prelude for?
    2 and a half years

    If you could have another Model Prelude - What would it be?
    BB6 SiR S Spec

    How long did it take you to decide what Mods to do?
    Not long enough, i jumped at my plans with all guns blazing, bank cards in hand and account details in the other.

    Where did you get your ideas?
    The very first pic i ever saw of a GReddy lip made me fall in love, DMT actually did a couple photochops for me with my dual exhaust setup and possible lip kits and i loved the sleak lines of the Mugen kit and the huge flush wing made me horney.

    Did you do majority of the Mods yourself?
    Anything i could fit i did, pretty much just the bodykit was left to the pros. It was actually too cheap to get brakes plus to do my breaks so they ended up doing the labour there.

    Do you have a name for your lude?
    No, my last car had was called Elanor(spelling?) and it was cursed like the one in gone in 60 seconds, dont want to risk anything like that again.

    What Mods did it have when you bought it?
    Bone stock

    Next Mod?
    Would love to fit the parts i have lying around.

    Future Aspirations for Prelude?
    Would love for a full engine rebuild building a monster NA h22a but reality of home loans ect. has now set in and this can only be a dream.

    How do you find the police are towards your lude? Any story's?

    They aren't too bad, only got pulled over about 10 times last year.lol
    One time i got pulled over because i didn't indicate, turns out my globe was blown. I then got accused for selling drugs coz it's "such a nice car for a 21 year old"
    I was on the side of the road with the whole inside flipped onto the nature strip for an hour, he found nothing but a dirty hand. He then got me to put the car back together and decided to try and defect me, he had no idea and i talked through most of my mods possible legalities lol.
    Was on the side of the road for 2 hours at 2am one morning when i had to start work at 7am lol

    Dont have all the pics i would love to put up becaust my HDD crashed a while ago, i lost some beuties! heres some anyways
