Ok all, yes EXTREMELY belated (many apologies) but to formally give nitin_s1 the accolade he won last July :wtf: after a very close run vote with TazzmanianDevil94

(Basically nitin is just so special, that he gets a huge long build up to the announcement - that's my excuse anyway and I'm sticking to it!)

Small update.

Finally got round to getting the Type S gear knob refurbished. The pictures don't do it justice, it is immaculate. I used pride car customs - https://www.pridecarcustoms.com/, who treated it to brand new leather and stitching.

I also ordered new door/window trims from Honda for both front doors as the old ones had seen better days. I decided to go new, although expensive, I want this car to be as good as it can be.

One of my friends, who is more mechanically inclined than me will come round in a few weeks to help me fit them :D

Looks beautiful, as many of you all know, I've just broken my Lude, and it's cars like yours that make me wanna rush out and buy another but in white... Mine was black and I loved it, it suited me but over time the white simply does it for me that little bit more! Congrats!!!

Been offered a set of original Type S alloys. I can't decide whether this would be an improvement over my Rota Torque's or not :?: Help? :)

My main issue with them is that they don't fill out the arches much. I like the design.

I like Type S wheels, however I think your torque work so well. The Rota torque/work emotion is one of the best looking wheels since Chuck Norris invented the wheel.
If you dont fancy them I'll take them. I'll going to be selling my enkies to free up some money as workload as dropped off a cliff for obvious reasons.

@RattyMcClelland I am only considering them because they are OEM really, I think in reality, I would buy them and they would sit in the garage. Did you want me to pass you on details of the seller for the Type S wheels? Sorry to hear about your workload :thumbdown:

Does anyone know about the silver Honda badge on the boot lid? Are they are universal Honda item or specific to the Prelude? Also, how are they attached? Mine is loose.
