blue89si's 1991 4WS2.0i-16 - update 1-25-06 - new brakes 56k beware

well i have seen a few people do this and i like the idea because i can keep track of every thing that i am doing to my car in one post.

today (Dec 10 2005) i bought a 1992 4WS2.0i-16 "Classic Edition". it has a B20A9, power door locks, power windows, power moon roof and power mirrors and ALB. it has a gray leather interior and a black exterior. oddly for all the features, it does not have cruise controll or A/C. i Am fine without the air because i am stationed in germany and it isn't unbearable in the summer. The odometer reads almost exactly 154,000 km which is about 95,691 miles. outside it is prety clean with only a few little dents which look like hail damage on the roof and trunk, a rust spot where the front left fender is dented and a little rust spot on the hood by the right headlight. there are a few scratches on the drivers door and the rear right bumper but over all it is not to bad. the engine has a little hesitation but i think it may be just the plugs and wires. if that dosent fix the problem, i am going to check the distributor. if any one has any input on that please let me know. well i am sure that i have forgot something but i have only had the car for about 5 hours so there will be plenty to follow.

here are some pictures that i took tonight when i got back before it got dark. i will post more when i get it cleaned up and in better light. please let me know what you think.




























thats right a real live clock door :mrgreen:


look guys a time machine ;)


ouch. this is the ugliest thing on the car. i really think i need a new one. what do you think?

i guess ill close with that. i have a few more but ill post better ones later. thanks for looking

I cant believe how clean it is. Where did you buy the car from?
i found the car on www.mobile.de there are tons of cars all around germany on there. there is a link on the bottom of the page to convert to english. i bought the car from a honda dealer called Autohaus M. Fugel. they are located in Chemnitz which is near Dresden.

our Lude is very nice. The leather´s seats are lovely.
the leather is prety good but there is a little rip at the left hand side of the sholder of the drivers seat and the oposite on the passanger seat. this car was owned by a smoker so it kinda stinks and the leather is prety dirty but nothing that cant be fixed/cleaned

is it posible to take the leather off to stich repairs (from the inside so that you cant see the repair? im sure i can fix it if i can get the leather off and back on but im afraid that i wont be able to get it back on agian corectly

if you take it to a fabric/stitching shop, they can remove it, fix or even replace all the leather on the seats and put it back on for you, but it will cost you.

i might check that out before the rips get to big. they are right on the seams so i dont think it would be to hard to fix.

That looks pretty good. But the real question is, are you gonna be able to bring it back over when you leave Germany?

im not sure. i have almost 2 years to figure out what needs to be done to bring it back. the army will ship it for free but im not sure how they work it if the vehicle is not originaly a US spec. there cant be that much that is different from a euro spec to a US spec but im not sure.

No way !!!! It is joke, isn't it. So expensive. You paid too much. For this money should be almost perfect with no dents, no rips on leaather.

It's emissions mostly. If you can drive the car legally in Germany, you can drive it in the US no problem since german vehicle codes are strict as hell. Will you be going back to Vermont when you come back? Either way, US vehicles have more emissions devices than JDM or EDM.

Nice lude though! :emthup:

that converts to 1600 UDS. i dont think its to much. the car only has 154 thousand km on it and it is in prety good shape. the leather dosent have any actual tears, just a seam that is starting to separate. i paid 1200 for my 89 and that had 233k miles on it (although the interior is in better shape). wait till i clean it up to pass judgement on it. most of the stuff that is wrong is a prety easy fix and shouldnt cost to much. ill post much better pictures when it is light out and i have cleaned it.

well im in the army till 2010 so i prob wont be going right back to VT but when i get out i want to. we dont test emissions there when you get your yearly inspection (at least i never have had it done on my '89) so i really hope i will be able to bring it back. im not sure about the seat belts. mine are not on the doors like the US ludes so there might be a problem there. other than that i cant see many hang ups. like i said before, ive got 2 years and thats if i dont extend.
