    Think it was fitted a motor bike first, known as Hyper VTEC.

    The first implementation of DOHC VTEC was in the Integra XSi with the B16A.

    Hi!

    I bough a Subaru 2.5 years ago...but still love seeing 5th gens with tasteful/subtle mods brings back good memories...

    I agree with the social media comments..majority of people have a smart phone these days...people post and the posts disappear after a day or days later...I don't really have the urge to spend money on mods anymore. just want a car with decent looks and power.

    I'm still around,been ages since i've got back on though,i have used FB for one post and don't see it for me,i don't do much FB in general more just keeping up with family and friends etc.
    Seems to be going that route sadly due to the next gen of owners and convenience of the Android phones for access.
    I have noticed alot more abbreviated posts though on FB as you would compared to oldschool entries which i don't like,some people don't have the time to proper post up a thread or fully comment or explain themselves,shame but thats the way it's gone.
    Forum anyday for me,i don't even have an Android phone,no rush for me there either!

    Agreed, i haven't modified a car i've owned since the S2000, just no urge to modify anymore. Certainly nothing beyond wheels and maybe suspension if i came into some money.

    I'm more into classic cars these days, i'm spending more time looking out for classics to speculate on than i am looking for a prelude to modify and go cruising in. I'll get myself a runabout, then a house deposit comes first, but once i have a house i plan to do some classic car speculation rather than modify 15 year old Hondas.

    It'll be good once you do.... especially with how much 3G experience you have under your belt.

    spot on

Back then Preludes were worth comparatively a lot, 5th gens were going for 15-20K, where as now you can pick up 5th gens under 5K. It's a different demographic buying the cars now generally speaking.

    Now they are a first car, something to be owned and driven but really not many people are going to start sinking big dollars into a prelude given a) owners are likely to be P platers and b) it is such a huge percentage of the overall value of the vehicle.

    Until preludes start to become, and i hate to use the word since it implies the value increases, 'classic' or at least desirable as an old car with character, the forum will be pretty dead.

    cars like that should be kept in the PA community.

    Wow I haven't been here for, well, a couple years now. Still got mine, it's had a couple small car park bingles and what not now.
    I too have hit the point where I care a lot less about modifying now. I'm looking to sell mine and get a new mazda or something soon.

    Anyone know anyone looking for a prelude? lol

    I'm considering selling my Prelude, too. Not that I hate it or anything, just that I'm looking at getting another car soon (DC5R, CTR or S2000) but I feel like keeping my Prelude as a daily because I still love it too much.. lol.
