I actually like the aftermarket halo head lights. I don't get bitched out by other drivers and I have great output. I do want to get better HIDs put in them from DDM Tuning with 4200K. Right now I have only 6000K HIDs. Fog lights have 3000K which need new HIDs too.

Nice car!

My brother has a Prelude that he bought brand new with 7 miles on it in 2001. It has over 250k now and is still running very strong. It's been super reliable and is a ton of fun to drive.

Yeah, it's an amazing car. I love it. Right now, I just had to replace the clutch on it and trying to get the transmission in the small area is a pain in the arse. I wanna buy another one. The 4th generation Prelude, while still keeping the 5th gen. I wish the US had gotten the LSD transmission and there were better and more aftermarket parts for the car. :(

We've had more than our share of LDS transmissions here in the US.

Oops. I meant LSD. Not the drug. xD
