    Hey man - Nice to have u aboard - your prelude was a nice car and I even dug the wing - to bad it got wrecked BUT you won't miss it that much if you get a rex trust me - as for insurance - the sti is quite a bit more than the plain wrx but here's an idea for you - I used to drive a 2001 saturn three door coupe - the wrx is about 500 dollars less per year to ensure! all wheel drive and full abs as well as all the airbags knock a lot of money off of it - good luck dude! - Dan

    Hey Buddy,

    I actually know you. I fill my car at that gas station all the time, as I live right around the block. I have the silver WRX with aftermarket wheels, and tint. Please drive my WRX sometime!

    Send me an email and let me know if you want to

    How did you manage to spin out on a highway in an FF car? Granted, that massive wing must take a good amount of traction away from the front wheels but still... Must be the naaawwz! Did your floor drop out when you used it, mang?

    Actually, I took off my wing prior to driving it and switched my rims back to stock. The Prelude is a TypeSH so it comes with a thing called ATTS. The ATTS acts as a Limited Slip Differential but only engages when the wheels turn. Well when I was coming around a bend on the highway (the road was really wet), and it bent a little to the left then a little harder to the right. Well the first turn was alright but when I hit the second bend my ATTS kicked in jerking the car hard right. Before I knew it the back end started whipping out then I countered steering making me go sideways down the highway. Then I began to head for the on ramp where a car was coming on. If I would of contiued to counter-steer I would of hit the car head on, making me t-bone him. But last minute I decide to complete my revolution and turn it full right, bringing the back end completely around and forcing me to jump the curb and luckily spin around the other car.

    At last check, Huey's is almost done with my black demoned and I should be getting it back within the next couple of days. They replaced my trunk (I instructed them not to drill any holes, not even for the lock, cause I sold my wing). The entire body kit was repainted, new underlights, and completely new back suspension. When it is all said and done total ends up to around $4000. Oh yeah, save the F&F jokes they're gay . But it looks like my plans for a WRX have been put off for a little while atleast.

    Oh and Brian I'll be giving you a call soon .

    I don't about cheap for these cars to insure. I just traded in my 04 mazda 3s which was 9-something a year to insure. My 04 wrx sedan now costs me $1600 a year! Big jump! By the way...I was told color doesn't matter anymore.
