    New to Prelude Australia

    Hey guys & girls,

    I'm Squalled, currently living in Western Sydney and drive a 1998 Super Marine Blue Prelude VTi-R, 5 speed. I have owned the car since the 13th of November 2013 and have been in love through the various ups and downs. I bought the car almost completely stock. Other than a custom axle back, aftermarket headunit, rear speakers and subwoofer.

    I was lucky to get the car with an original factory spoiler, front and rear lip along with side skirts. Since purchasing the car with a few minor issues, I have replaced all radiator hoses, one air hose, power steering pump and fixed some bumper damage.

    I have also purchased some modifications since the purchase including a K&N panel filter, new amplifier, new head unit (old was not working), genuine Type S strut bar (not yet installed only purchased last week), Skunk2 weighted gear knob, 50mm shifter extension, genuine JDM honeycomb grill with 'Prelude' logo, rear license plate and interior LEDs. and few little other mods here and there.

    At the moment my future plans are to get some suspension work done, get thicker sway bars, install the strut bar (if I get new suspension or find the strut top hats), a full exhaust system, installation of Innovative street mounts (picked up last week), Hydro dipping rocker cover.

    Stay tuned for pictures and updates

    If I'm reborn, does that mean I'm new?

    Squalled, I've seen a really lovely deep blue VTiR 5th Gen around Old Bathurst Rd a couple of times. If it's yours, it's absolutely gorgeous!
    Looking forward to the pics!

    Hi! My name's Tom!
    The other guy running around using my Avatar is a pig!
    I'm the nice twin! Dizygotic of course!

    I just l-u-u-u-vvv Preludes!
    Dying to get my hands on a pristine 3rd Gen!
    That's why I chase ambulances from nursing homes; wondering if the patient inside has a 3rd gen locked away in mothballs > then I suck up to him!

    You don't have to carefully read Tom's 1st post above to realise that he's not to be trusted!

    Hi my name is Tim aka Rodolphos Sorbet on PSN for F12013 which I never play anymore.

    When I'm not elbow deep in an FC RX7, I enjoy earl grey tea and and Formula 1.

    While I have owned several preludes, I have an strong allergic reaction to owning cars for more than 12 months and as such have lost count of how many cars and motorbikes I've owned now. In fact it's about time I sell my WRX.

    Please to meet you.

    Well Terry, if you are ever in Perth I could get you acquainted with a nice example.

    Oh Stahp Guys.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!

    Terry, don't live around the Bathurst area and haven't been there before. Wouldn't mind going though.
