    Getting back into a Prelude

    Hi gang thinking of getting back into a Prelude and a proper vtec Honda after getting rid of my 3rd gen prelude for a more practicle CL9 Euro a couple of years back.

    Here is what I found. Bad: 300 000km +, Speedo nil op, faded paint, RHD CV boot needs replacing, leak in clutch master cylinder, leak from rear main seal, engine drinks a bit of oil (300 000km not surprising), SRS fault light on, intermittent engine light, under tray broken, interior needs some lovin, nil service history with current owner. Good: Price neg, Engine feels strong considering kms and vtec comes on strong. near new front tyres and good tread on rears.
    My wifes TJ VRX Magna is pretty tired so maybe give her my Euro and this could be my wheels. Rego only just expired so I could re-register it in ACT without an inspection and tackle all the little issues at my leisure. Thoughts?

    Nice find !

    For $800 ? not bad.. interior looks pretty intact and comfy even after 300+Kms

    If you were to buy it and restore then depending on how fussy you are with the restoration you might end up spending enough to equal the amount of buying one at regular market price.. if that makes sense. BUT it could be good fun and you could put it up here

    Managed to negotiate the price down. So I'm back in in a Prelude. Happy days
