    I am working a lot now since its summer so i need help on what to get. The next item im getting for my car is a cf hood, if you have seen my pics you will know why. No need and telling me I need to get stuff for my engine cuz im not going to, long story, pm me if you want to know it LoL.

    The List:
    CF Hood (where should I go to get one? online stores?)

    Springs and maybe struts. I was thinking Tokico Struts with TEIN s-techs.(Give me your thoughts though and tell me what you think I should get.)

    Wheels. This is what im really nervous about. I was thinking rota slips forever, but it seems all my friends want them to now so i think ill pass. I was possibly thinking rota gt3 in red. The specs I want though are 16x7, 5x114.3, and a +45mm offset(those are what someone told me cuz he said that anything lower than 45mm on my car will probally rub). I need your sugestions on rims those, badly.

    Extra Stuff.. GReddy front lip, oem skirts and back (possibly).. 00' front grille

    Thanks for the help guys. Im a new kid at cars still so i need all the help i can get.

    Rota slipstreams are just a knock off of spoon rims. A lot of people put them on civics, I don't think they would look right on a prelude... Those gt3's aren't bad, but what color is your lude, red? If the reds don't match, it will look goofy. My lude is nighthawk black pearl, and I eventually wanna buy Tenzo R Passion 5's in black with the polished lip. Greddy front lip is sweeeeeeeeet, but I think when I buy my lip kit, I might just go with an oem front. I love how it says "greddy" on it though. That's hot, but on a black car, you probably couldn't see it all that well, so I'll probably just go stock. Tokicos and tein s. techs sound good. I was also considering buying those tein springs, but my parking lot at work is shitty, so I don't know if I want to drop my car yet. I'd give you advice on cf hood, but I don't really like them. I think they are getting kinda played out. I like it when people paint the outside of a cf hood, leaving just the middle section cf (on an oem style cf hood) All I know about cf hoods is DON"T buy from ebay is what I hear. Oh, and you have pretty good taste in parts for being new.

    Word up. I can get the oem front lip for like 50 bucks painted though, so it's more economical for me to go with that. Oh, and it's only for the Nighthawk Black one before you ask. Sorry. Oh, and why don't you want anything for your engine? pm me.

    i like your list too, thats pretty much cosmetically what i want, i love white ludes, oem cf hood (dont know where from tho?) greddy or oem lip kit.

    for wheels i think slips are too common and wouldnt really suit the lude

    tokico and tein sounds like a good budget option, im saving for some tein coilovers just now

    anyway, have you thought about rota grids? i think you can get them in red
    gt3's could be good too
    red on white car is sick:)

    everyone likes to burn when you mention rotas but IMO if i could afford the real deal i would buy them, but thats not an option for me. so i would buy rotas because they look good :spitdrink:

    5Zigen Wheels have been known to be quite price friendly as well.

    Tenzo may be a little played out, but all of those rims are too chunky^ I like a more open design so the brakes are more visible. Not knocking anybody, just my taste is different than yours, I guess. I used to want 5Zigen copses for my crx, but now that I'm rockin' the Lude, I'm on this whole black on black thing, so I want a black rim with a polished lip and I like 5 spoke designs, so that's why I like the Tenzo Passion 5's.

    Yeah man I think some work emotion cr would me nice, not very expensive at all. 16" come in a really nice black, or the new gunmetal that would look sick. As far as shocks, I think every honda owner can vouche that they started on tokico's :) but stay away from s-tech springs, the ride is horrible and handling not too good. The tein springs are not made the same as there higher end coilovers. If you want some cheap springs like the tein, but better quality get tanabe. I can get you any of these parts at a great price if you need them. Including the wheels :rocks:

    And white cars do look sick on red wheels

    I've been having a hell of a time getting a CF hood for the BB4, should have more luck with the BB6... But I'll let you know who's I end up with and if I like the build quality or not... Right now it's between VIS Sebon and Fiber Images.

    I've had Tokico's for years... Blew up a set of Koni's and put my old Tokico's back on. So I've got a soft spot for the Tokico's... I don't have a lot of experience in suspension tuning... Nearly all of my friends refuse to ride in my car because it's so stiff... But I love it. Tokico seems to be a fantastic budget shock. Excellent build quality too.

    IMHO, painted rims look bad... Black can be OK... But I love shiny shit anyway so I can't really help ya' here.
