Honda Prelude Accessories & Parts

The Honda Prelude, Honda's highly successful two-door coupe, first appeared on the scene for the 1979 model year and slotted right the lineup where the S800 used to be. For over twenty years, the Prelude went head-to-head with the Toyota Celica, as the two coupes seemed to duel over bragging rights both in the US and abroad. When it debuted, the Honda Prelude was outfitted with a 1.8L inline four-cylinder SOHC engine capable of 75 horsepower and mated to a standard five-speed manual transmission with a three-speed automatic available as an option. In 1981, the engine was upgraded with a new catalytic converter. Second-generation versions of the Prelude were released in 1983. This time around it was equipped with a 1.8L 12-valve fuel-injection engine that produced up to 110 horsepower. Also new for this generation were such parts as pop-up headlights and painted steel wheels.

1988 welcomed in the third generation of the Honda Prelude. This time around, the Prelude showed off new exterior accessories and a bevy of other changes ti the Honda Prelude parts, including four-wheel steering on several versions of the model. The engine was once again updated, this time to a 2.0L inline four-cylinder SOHC configuration with a 12-valve sidedraft carburetor capable of approximately 104 horsepower and 111 pounds-per-foot of torque. For the 2.0 Si, horsepower was kicked up to 135. Engines were directed through either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission. Honda unveiled the fourth generation of the Prelude in 1992. The base S showed off a 2.2L SOHC engine (135 hp) while the VTEC setup made its debut for the Prelude in other variants, offering a hefty kick with 187 horsepower and 153 pounds-per-foot of torque. Pop-up headlights were discontinued in the model and were instead replaced with sleeker, angular headlamps while a steel sliding sunroof could also be had.

The fifth generation of the Honda Prelude was introduced for 1997. A slew of engine options were available, with the US offering the 197 horsepower VTEC configuration. New 16" alloy wheels were included in most packages. As for the car's exterior and accessories, the body-shape was vaguely reminiscent of the third-generation design, although it showed off a sleeker and overall more aerodynamic look. Coming into the 2001 model year, Honda decided to discontinue the Prelude from the lineup. Although it is no longer assembled, the Prelude has gone to remain a popular car for performance enthusiasts, as it has enjoyed a revival in the aftermarket industry. During its time on the road, the Honda Prelude received numerous awards, including being named to Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best List (1984, 1985, 1986, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, and 1998), a Consumer Guide Best Buy (1998, 1999, 2000), and the Best Coupe by Automobile Magazine (1999).

One of the premier rides for getting your own style involved is of course, the Honda Prelude. Seen by many as the ultimate customizing canvas, the Prelude enjoys a stellar reputation as being both a performance machine and efficient street-model. The sleek exterior catches your gaze as it breezes by. Engaging, menacing, and tastefully modern, the Prelude has instilled its own legacy for this generation's automotive culture. When it is taken care of the right way and dressed to impress, not many others can rival what the Prelude is still capable of. Period.

  • Generators
    Portable Generators: Superstorm Salvation For The Household
    With storms and weather events that intensify with every passing year, power outages lasting for extended periods of time have become commonplace - a problem that's only going to get worse in the future. When power outages hit, hot water heaters, heating systems, kitchen appliances, basement pumps, security alarms, and other items that use electricity as their lifeblood are rendered useless. You're left literally powerless to control your environment against extreme temperatures, and you have no way to stop flooding and property damage that tend to go hand-in-hand with heavy storms.
  • Garage Accessories
    Lifts & Ramps Safely Bring Your Vehicle Up To Working Height
    The odds are that if you clicked on this article to read it, then you appreciate the idea of working on your own car. Perhaps when you pass by a professional garage or shop, you're a bit envious as you glance in and see service bays filled with lifts and other equipment that make certain repair jobs easier. Professionals use lifts for a good reason - they allow you to perform almost any repair at a more comfortable height so you can see clearly, apply torque easily, reach for tools faster, and have access to areas normally inaccessible with the vehicle on the ground.
  • Custom Hoods
    What Are My Choices For Custom Hood Materials?
    An automobile hood is one of the body panels on your vehicle with the largest surface area, and it's the one panel you'll be looking at every minute you're behind the wheel. Considering this, maybe you find it as odd as we do that many vehicle manufacturers have chosen to make modern hood panels flat and boring, thanks in large part to the search for low wind resistance.
  • Sunroof Visors
    How To Install A Universal Sunroof Visor
    Sunroof deflectors install on your vehicle's roof in front of the leading edge of the sunroof itself. The rounded, upwardly-curving shape they possess redirects air so it flows up and over the sunroof opening instead of into the vehicle. Because of that built-in curve, most deflectors extend over and effectively cover approximately three to six inches of the sunroof opening at the front - blocking sun glare that would normally beam directly into your eyes.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Rain Guards: In-Channel vs. Stick-On
    Rain Guards, also known as wind deflectors, window deflectors, or window visors, are an underrated automotive accessory - simply because it's difficult to know just how effective they are until you experience them. However, once fitted on your car or truck, it's hard to imagine how you got along without them. Deflectors improve your vehicle's aerodynamics when the windows are down, reducing annoying wind noise. Deflectors also allow you to drive in the rain with windows cracked for ventilation without getting wet. And when blistering hot summer days roll around, windows can be left cracked in a parking lot without being noticeable to potential thieves.
  • Bug Deflectors
    The Age Old Debate: Do Bug Deflectors Work?
    The effectiveness of bug deflectors has been a point of contention between believers and non-believers for a long time. Some insist they work wonders, while others swear to the contrary. Because lots of testimonials supporting both points of view float around the internet and through word of mouth, deciding what to believe can be difficult. Before doing that, it's important to understand the thinking behind bug deflector designs.
  • Sunroof Visors
    Sunroof Visors Let You Enjoy Fresh Air No Matter The Weather
    According to recent statistics, over half of new vehicles sold in the United States are equipped with a factory "sunroof", "moonroof", "panorama roof", or similarly-named panel which allows part of a vehicle's roof to slide open. It wouldn't be a stretch to say almost 9 million cars and trucks leave factories so equipped each year. And the reason for their popularity is simple - sunroofs are great! They make it possible to enjoy fresh air, warm sun, and cool breezes right by our heads while driving our four-door sedans, SUVs, and minivans. We get a taste of the convertible life without giving up 98% of the practicality we need every day. At the dealership, most buyers see a sunroof option on the checklist and immediately envision blissfully taking in all the joys of Mother Nature while driving their future car. Mentally, the forecast is sunshine with no rain - a powerful enough thought to make the extra cost of a sunroof seem well worthwhile.
  • Wind Deflectors
    How To Install Rain Guards | In-Channel And Stick-On
    Rain Guards, also known as wind deflectors, window deflectors, or window visors, improve your vehicle's aerodynamics when the windows are down, reduce annoying wind noise, shield you from rain spray, and allow windows to be left cracked in a parking lot without giving notice to potential thieves. Going forward, we'll refer to them as "deflectors" in this article.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Water Sports Equipment
    So you've got a kayak, canoe, surfboard, or stand up paddleboard you can't wait to use. Before you can do that, however, you've got to find a practical way to get your toy to a lake or ocean - safely, and without damage. While these watersport items embody grace and fluidity in the waves, the truth is they're extremely cumbersome to transport on land. If you find yourself scratching your head trying to figure out the best solution, we've created this article to cover the many rooftop carriers for these items that we offer.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Rear Window Deflectors | Made To Shade Your Truck’s Back Glass
    Have you ever driven your pickup truck and found that the sun glare coming from the rear window is a real nuisance? It's difficult to block the sunlight from streaming through that location, especially given that your vehicle manufacturer was not thoughtful enough to provide fold-down visors for the rear window area. You could fashion and install some kind of curtain, but that would only create a greater nuisance by blocking rear vision.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Do Rain Guards Really Work?
    If the air conditioning system in your car no longer blows cold air because performing costly repairs isn't feasible, you've probably become familiar with the cooling off method some describe as "460 Air Conditioning" - signifying 4 windows down at 60 miles per hour. You play around with just how much to open each window in order to create a balance that maximizes crosswind and minimizes unpleasant, ear-popping buffeting inside the cabin. But no matter how hard you try, you and your hair still end up disheveled. Hopefully you're not going to a place where that matters.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Storage Solutions | Cargo Boxes, Bags, Baskets
    Maybe you've got an SUV with three rows of seats. They're great fun when 6 or 8 people are along for a road trip, but most such modern vehicles utilize every inch of interior space in order to fit that third row. Consequentially, there's virtually zero room for cargo when seats are in the upright position. Or maybe you have a similar problem with a compact hatchback, or even a minivan. Your vehicle may have fold-flat seats that make carrying cargo easy, but what good are they when you need to bring passengers with you? You can't ask adults to squeeze in between duffel bags or sporting gear, and you can't ask them to hang on tight and surf on the roof either.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Winter Sports Equipment
    Skiing and snowboarding are not inexpensive hobbies. After purchasing skis, poles, shoes, clothes, lift passes, and even lodging accommodations, you've shelled out enough money that it becomes tempting to skip spending more on a rooftop carrier. But if you've ever jammed all your snow gear inside your car, you know how chaotic, slushy, and awkward that can be - especially if you're trying to make room for friends and luggage. That's why we offer cleverly-designed rooftop carriers that won't break your bank in the Ski & Snowboard Racks section of our website.
  • Spoilers
    How Easy Is It To Install a Spoiler Myself?
    Rear spoilers are one of the flashiest yet cost-effective exterior additions you can make to your ride. The right spoiler will transform a plain-Jane family car into a sports sedan, and upgrade a sporty car into a one-of-a-kind race machine.
  • Spoilers
    Will Adding a Spoiler Make My Car More Aerodynamic?
    A simple way to answer this question would be with a "yes". However, the science of properly managing airflow to create beneficial automotive aerodynamics is, quite literally, more complicated than meets the eye. The word "aerodynamics" brings to mind visions of a vehicle in a wind tunnel with a smoke wand illustrating how smoothly air flows over it. But true automobile aerodynamics involves a detailed study of how the motion of air interacts with all areas of an automobile. One term that gets the most attention is "coefficient of drag" (Cd), which is an overall measurement of a shape's resistance to airflow.

    Why Should I Order My Spoiler Already Painted?
    When you've finally decided on the right rear spoiler or wing for your vehicle, it can't arrive quickly enough. Then, you want it to be ready for installation as soon as possible so you can begin enjoying the benefits of it. Because we understand this, we offer the option of ordering spoilers pre-painted by our manufacturers before shipping. Based on customer feedback and experiences relayed to us, we strongly recommend you consider choosing this option, for these very good reasons:
  • Spoilers
    What Kind of Spoiler is Right for You?
    The function of a rear spoiler is to control the flow of air streaming over a vehicle and properly manage it when it reaches the rear where turbulence is most likely to form. A correctly designed spoiler will counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and it will enhance rear grip by keeping a vehicle's rear end planted firmly against the road - without causing excess drag.
  • Body Kits
    Lightweight Body Panels | Cut Pounds, Go Faster, Save Fuel
    If you're an automotive enthusiast who has visited our performance sections, it's likely that you know that reducing overall vehicle weight is an effective way to enhance your vehicle's performance, handling, and fuel economy. Naturally, there are different schools of thought on the subject of vehicle weight reduction.
  • Body Kits
    What Type of Body Kit Material Should I Choose?
    If you're reading this, you've probably decided the factory stock appearance of your car, while attractive, is rather staid and unexciting. You know that modifying your vehicle with a body kit is what feels right when it comes to adding a personal touch and making it your own. Maybe you're considering starting out slowly by adding a rear spoiler or front air dam, or going further with side skirts and even a replacement custom hood.
  • Body Kits
    Body Kit Installation | Weekend DIY, or Professional Shop?
    At CARiD, we understand how deeply the appeal of side skirts, rear diffusers, aero wings, air dams, custom replacement bumper covers, and other components included in body kits runs in the blood of automotive enthusiasts. We know, because we've added them on our own vehicles to enhance performance and to create uniquely impressive visual signatures.
  • Body Kits
    Are Body Kits for Show or for Go?
    Full body kits are inspired by the look and functionality of body panel refinements made to racecars after relentless amounts of wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic adjustments on the track. Careful sculpting of body panels with addition of air dams, skirts, rear spoilers, ridges and diffusers serves to control airflow around the car - yielding a lower coefficient of drag along with greater amounts of downforce that keep a car pressed against the ground at higher speeds.
  • Running Boards
    Folding Steps Make It Easier To Reach Your Pickup Bed
    Maybe you've struggled to reach the roof rack of an SUV during loading and unloading of baggage. Or, if you live in a winter climate area, maybe you've also found it extremely difficult to clear snow off your van's roof because the brush in your hand wasn't long enough to reach the center. Either way, opening a vehicle door and standing precariously on the floor with both feet just inside can easily lead to loss of balance and injury. Plus, there's always a plenty of snow that spills into the passenger area - no matter how hard you try to avoid it.
  • Bed Accessories
    Bed Mat, Bed Liner, Bed Coating | Which One is Better for My Pickup Bed?
    If you carry heavy objects, sharp-edged debris, branches, lumber, rubble, and equipment in your pickup truck regularly, you know it doesn't take much for this kind of cargo to leave scratches and gouges on the painted metal surface of your bed floor and walls. Odds are you've experienced this. No matter how gingerly you place items in your bed and tie them down, the unexpected panic stop that always comes up sooner or later still manages to create chaos as things shift around. Maybe you've even felt and heard a dreaded thump behind your seat after heavier items broke free and slid forward hard - leaving a noticeable dent in your bed wall. While these are problems inherent with any metal bed floor, there is a better way to carry cargo while keeping your pickup bed looking good.
  • Bed Accessories
    How Can I Carry More Stuff in My Pickup Bed?
    Whether you use your pickup for work or for recreation, carrying a lot of equipment, tools, and gear means you're potentially prepared for a range of situations. But if you can't find exactly what you need and extract it from your truck's cargo area in a timely manner, you're really not as prepared as you think. Consider the last time you couldn't find something in your truck. Maybe a search through the entire vehicle was necessary in order to be sure the item wasn't in the truck before beginning a search somewhere else. How much time did that take? And how was your stress level afterward? Or maybe, perish the thought, you had to buy a new tool to replace one you couldn't find but knew wasn't actually lost for good.
  • Automotive Tools
    What Special Tools Are Available For Suspension Repair?
    Seasoned professional automotive technicians often say if you're using too much physical effort during a repair, you're simply not using the right tool. This is true, and a perfect example is repairing and replacing suspension components. If you've ever done this type of work or attempted to do it, you know it can be trickier than merely loosening and tightening bolts.
  • Grill Guards
    How To Install a Grille Guard / Bull Bar
    Grille guards, bull bars, push bars, and bumper guards all offer good looks and serious protection for the front of your vehicle against hard knocks found on roads and trails everywhere. One of the best things about these protective devices is even though they'll look good and keep their high-strength integrity for a long time, it only takes a very short time to install any of them. In fact, they can bolted on relatively easily, in most cases using simple hand tools.
  • Side Mirrors
    What You Need To Know When Ordering A Replacement Outside Mirror
    It's a dismaying feeling seeing side view mirror components damaged. Whether you know how the damage happened or not, you're faced with what might be an extensive, costly repair and the dreaded hassle of figuring out what replacement parts are necessary - or where to go for the repair. Maybe it’s only the glass that’s cracked, or perhaps the whole assembly is hanging loosely by a wire.
  • Off-Road Accessories
    Glossary of Off-Road Terminology
    If you're looking to beef up your 4x4 to take it off-roading, chances are you've been reading about all the ways it's possible to improve a truck and get it ready for the trails. There are so many different approaches to the subject and so many differing opinions, your head may start spinning. We know starting from scratch can be confusing, especially if you're undertaking something you've never been involved with before.
  • Grill Guards
    Bull Bars, Grille Guards, Push Bars | Protection Devices or Posers?
    Grille guards are sought-after accessories because they offer the rare combination of significantly boosting a truck's looks and adding valuable protection against front-end damage on job sites, off-road trails, and other tricky situations. Looking through the grille guard & bull bar section of our website, you'll see a variety of ways to protect the front of your vehicle. Because the expression "grille guard" has grown to encompass bull bars, brush guards, push bars, and bumper guards, we'll define these different styles and review the benefits each variation offers. Some of them span just the center area of your vehicle's front fascia, while others reach all the way from corner to corner.
  • Off-Road Bumpers
    Off-Road Front Bumper Options | Push Bars, Brush Guards & Skid Plates
    There's a saying that advises out of all the paths you take in life, it's important to make sure a few of them are dirt. But while dirt can be found most anywhere you leave the pavement, far more challenging conditions and obstacles lie in wait - some seen, and some unseen. Because no two people's definitions of off-roading will be quite the same, we offer off-road front bumpers for 4x4s that are designed to avoid scrapes and damage while handling a variety of tasks OEM bumpers can't. Heavy gauge steel provides extra strength, and angled corners and edges provide extra clearance. Steep approach angles that would damage factory bumpers become no problem - wherever boulders arise from ashes.

Great Upgrade While Using Less Power
Product looks great, works so much better than the standard halogen bulbs. I was planning on getting a fog light set but with the new headlights bulbs/Nite-Lux LED's no reason to get them. I recommend this product to anyone looking to get better night visibility with a great LED bulb. Product plugged right into stock harness and fits perfect in bulb slot. Also uses less voltage than standard bulbs which is great on your battery.
