DONT PANIC

 

I have owned this lovely thing for a short time yes..but...I think I am getting WW's penchant for short term ownership goalz. This was purchased from Ghosty of this parish whom lavished it with lots of attention, and, even in my tenure, I have too, fixing niggles and this car is pretty much A1. Seriously it is. 

 

Copy pasted some of the original listing below;

 

-electric windows, mirrors, aerial and sunroof;

-automatic gearbox with sport mode;

-four nearly new Evergreen tyres;

-new Monroe front springs, and KYB shocks;

-full size spare tyre;

-14" official Honda accessory alloy wheels; and

-a boot spoiler.

 

The 2.0 SOHC Honda F-series engine makes 130bhp, as also found in the Rover 600. It's great on the motorway.

 

Cambelt has been done at some point as it's wearing a Gates belt, not sure when, mind. IIRC these are non-interference anyway.

The car has MOT to August 23rd, and I see no reason it wouldn't fly through another. The trailing ends of the rear arches have some paint bubbling, but for a Honda product of its age it's minimal. The car is very presentable, and while not perfect, it's incredibly honest. It has been resprayed in the original colour at some point in its life.

There are a couple of small paint marks and a couple of scuffs on one or two of the wheels, but that's as far as it goes.

 

Make no mistake, this is the most tidy and well cared for Prelude I have seen/driven. I have had a few people comment and talk about how lovely it is. 

 

I have also fixed the speakers, at a cost of £90, they are all fully working now and wired in professionally. I fixed the trip computer so it works, and the door vents also now blow hard and clear! It also has brand new Bosch flat wipers all round, led sidelights front and rear, and H4 LED headlamps which are stunningly bright.

 

Only issue is a slight clunk through the steering, which I was going to get sorted some point this week, but, an impending purchase of a Teutonic tank means I shan't. However, do not fear, as the issue is a worn ball joint according to my trusty mechanic, as he had a look over and said the rack etc was fine and tight. The car really does drive so well!

 

I have priced it at a loss, and less than Ghosty was selling it for despite my fixes! It really has been well cared for and I would be surprised if you found another in this condition. YES I HAVE KNOCKED OFF ANOTHER £50 AS IVE JUST CONFIRMED THE NEW PURCHASE...so I need my space asap. Price is firm and fair given how much work has gone into the car, and the condition!

 

Location Cradley Heath, delivery possible for fuel/train ticket money.

I am mad. I've knocked off £50 so the price is £800 firm. Bearing in mind I paid more for this, spent a bit doing things up, that's a bargain considering the condition and work that Ghosty and me have put into it (more Ghosty though). I've done this only as I have just this second booked train tickets for friday and confirmed my new German steed..
