Would it be wise to be a Prelude now that they aren't making it, or would parts for the car just cost me a lot more?? I'm thinking of getting like a 92 or 93 Prelude but i'm not sure anymore, anyone got any advice?

Depends on what you are into....you ask everyone here and they gonna say get the 4th gen Si if you want to Turbo...get the 4th gen Vtec if you are going all motor...but you must be aware that 4th gen Vtecs are almost impossible to find...people that have them tend to keep them...there are plenty of parts for the Prelude...so don't worry about it....

I disagree...I say get 5th Gen. Not for any reason, I just thought we wouldn't be so prejudice against th 5th gen Murdah!!! :D
I say make sure its at least an Si. Vtec is sweet and is still very possible to turbo, just takes more $$$$

he said he wanted a 92 or 93...:) i'm not biased...

I'd agree with Trboh22 on this one...

Also, IMO the 5th Gen's are much faster and look better, no offense to any other gen's....

i think they look better (in some ways), but the 5gen is not faster than the 4gen VTEC... the 4gen wins by a little

TIME FOR SOME FLAME!!!

anybody catch a glimps at import tuner? 5th gen with itr front end... BEAUTIFUL... IMO anyway... but damn, that lude is hot. took me a while to realize it was a prelude... had to look towards the rear a little bit... put it all together... only thing i don't like about the 5th gen is the front end, and on the 4th the back end sooooo.... yeap... couldn't they just have mixed em both up.. wonder what that would look like... :) :: opens up photoshop ::

Both have points....

Anyone know the weight difference between 4th and 5th gen?

I like the look of each for different reasons....If I wanted a sleek sporty look (which I do and have) I'd go 4th gen, I really like the rounder lines and I think it is about four inches shorter than the 5th, from angles (the front with the wheel wells stickin out sorta like the s2000 wheel wells, mmmmmm)...if I wanted a sport/sedanish look with more squarish lines, I'd get 5th. Plus it's newer so 80% of people who aren't lude fanatics are gonna automatically assign the 5th more prestige as far as auto prestige goes too.

But apparently you've chosen 4th (good call) so get the Si and go turbo! No problem for parts.....anything goes wrong just upgrade it with aftermarket parts!:spawn:
