Good whatever the hell time it is /o/.
I will be buying one if these or a tC things in a few days. The models range in price from $3800-$6500.

I've done the background for the models in general not for specific cars yet. I'm leaning toward the Prelude honestly.

What I really want you guys to do is...convince me otherwise. Or at least make me think more about it.

Responses from OP won't be me bitching at you about "Muh feels". You guys are honest and that's what I would like. Could you do that for me guys?

All cars are Manuel Transmission BTW.
>>
Its a Accord Coupe with a engine that sucks gas, burns oil (whether its a quart every 200 miles or every 2000 miles is up to luck), and isn't very quick for a new car.

Get a manual tC before all the benchracers rush in and ramble on about 10 year old magazine articles and how its the best car ever made. The tC is newer, more reliable, safer, simpler, and costs almost the same.
>>
Well you tell Manuel that if he wants to talk to me he can transmit messages himself!
>>
When you say tC, do you mean a relatively new one or something from a similar year to the Prelude in your pic?

Heard lots of good about Ludes, mostly bad about tC's.
>>
>>14214241
Thanks m8. I have yet to be able to get actual oil burning numbers. Luck eh?

The tC does have that swanky sunroof going for it, along with that newness factor. Just so we all know this is a gen 1 tC. I am not keen on the styling if the gen 2. I will admit that gen 2 is a better car however. No sour grapes here.
>>
>>14214247
the tC is alright though
>>
>>14214247
Gen 1 tC poppa bear.

Hondas burning oil is a meme, They're no different from any other car in that regard

Prelude is slightly faster, handles better, but its an older so it will be a little less reliable
>>
>>14214243
That guy is mad lazy yo. You gotta hustle him.

I could smoke the fuck out of this in my 1994 EG hatch

H/F-Series naturally burns oil due to FRM liners. On top its a 15-20 year old Honda so there's further oil consumption through valve seals and rings.

They honestly are overrated meme cars. You're not going to turn it into a sports car due to its weight, it'll get low-mid 20s mpg because its heavy and Hs are thirsty, it has a 1/4 mile time in the low 15s-high 14s so its not exactly race car material either. And on a lot of them by now the ATTS is broken/worn out (not to mention, its not a replacement for a real helical/gear type LSD and larger swaybars, otherwise Honda would've used that technology in Type Rs).

Its just a Accord Coupe with VTEC and nicer lines. I'd get the tC if you can find a nice cheap one. Celica GTS/Matrix XRS/Vibe GT/Corolla XRS is also a very nice car as a practical sporty daily. Depending on your area you could also raise your budget to $6-9000 and find a nice 06-11 Civic Si too.

>>14214290
Preludes burning oil is not a meme anonkin. All their threads and forums have shown the opposite. Hondas in general this ain't it. Just the two cars in this thread.

I want truth here!
>>
>>14214324
And it's not even out of place this time.
>>
>>14214329
Thanks champ.
>>
>>14214329
what's wrong with the third gen prelude?
i wish i lived in your fantasy world where 5g preludes are in the same price range as scion tc, celica gts, matrix, vibe, corolla
>>
>>14214484
Texas?

Third gens are just too old mate.
Celica GTS's are trashed. So are a bunch of other things. I got three clean preludes $3800, $5400(negotiable) and $6500.
Scion $5000(carpet flooded):/ $6000 for a solid example and 6700+ for good ones and Civic Si's.
>>
>>14214484
No one mentioned the 3rd Gen, and its worse due to having no parts/no aftermarket/no parts compatibility with other newer Hondas.

My fantasy world is newyork.craigslist.org/cto/

You can find a few Matrix XRSs for dirt cheap, $3-5k. Great cars too. Celicas are come and go. Scions are usually $4-7k. Preludes are $2-5k with the cheap ones having some kind of issue (JDM replacement motors that won't pass emissions, bodywork/rust, or automatics).

Vibe = Toyota Matrix with more plastic cladding and Pontiac badges = Corolla Station Wagon.
>>
>>14214484
5gen preludes are 3-5000 any day of the week...

Not even close, unless you're talking about the Euro R with H22.
>with a engine that sucks gas
I got ~27mpg when I commuted with mine, it's decent.
>burns oil (whether its a quart every 200 miles or every 2000 miles is up to luck)
Not luck, wear and abuse. It's fine if the car is maintained
>and isn't very quick for a new car.
Much faster than the tC and plenty fast for having fun.

>>14214329
>And on a lot of them by now the ATTS is broken/worn out
ATTS is pretty bulletproof and won't wear out before other major components. Also, that only applies to the Type SH.
>>
I really want to jew that guy down from $5400 to like $4800 or something. That would it put it 500-1000 less than le Scions.
>>
>>14214561
Thanks Pontiac!

Yeah, Vibes don't get love.

Also, my Mazda 3 hatch got swallowed during a Halloween flood...gonna get away from the hatchback life this time.
tC's aren't quite hatchbacks.
>>
>>14214574
About 27 eh? That's not too bad. Yeh, only looking at base models.

How long have you had yours?

5 years? Something like that.

Bought it when I was in college, was my first car.

>>14214674
you've had it for at least 20, because that's how long you've been on this board.

Do you come to PA/NJ often? I don't use it for commuting anymore either. Posted that picture before though

Well, the picture. But that picture is not new. That's all I'm saying.

Been a shadow lurker for a good while now.
