Just wanted some opinoins on this, curious to what people would do.

My mom has a 98 Accord EX 4 Dr -5 SP w/Greddy Shift Knob and Intake. I was always interested in it. So my question is....

Would you rather drive a 98 Accord 5 Speed, or 99 Prelude SS??

I'd rather get a different Prelude. Accords are the anti-fun...

Well since it has a greddy shift knob, DEFINITELY go with the accord :tongue2: J/P.

2doors > 4 .. go w/ the Lude

The accord. I like 4-doors with 5-speeds :D

And I wouldn't be caught dead driving Automatic in anything but a truck or full-size sedan.

That's 6 Lude, 4 Accord. Alright guys thanks. Funny thing is, it also has an HKS bomb muffler on there when she bought it. She was mad when they installed the stock muffler after.

the 98-02 accord coupes are very nice, i always told myself that if i never got a prelude then i would get a 2dr 5spd accord, they look luxorious and sporty at the same time.


yesterday i saw a v6 2dr 5spd accord, with rims, tinted windows and a aftermarket exhaust, almost looked as nice as my lude.

A 98-02 V6 5-spd? I didn't know that existed.

...I own a 99 prelude (5sp) and 98 2dr accord v6. The lude is my car show and the accord is the beater. I was really shocked to find out that my accord MPG wise ran circles around my lude. I often make a 400 mile trip to Stillwater,Ok to see my GF and I can go about 420 miles b/4 I have to fill up the lude. But the accord (no joke) was square dead in the middle of half a tank and 1/4 a tank, after 425 miles. (just food for thought)

But to answer your question, I'd rather drive my lude any day!

My dad's 98 Accord V6 gets 32 mpg on the highway. My Prelude gets like 28. The Accord runs on regular, too.

Yet another reason for me to pick up a second car.
