Strive to be of value: Edward’s BB6 Prelude
Iman Machmud

We’ve been considering to put this BB6 Prelude to our site for as a Surabaya visit’s gift to you guys now. Owner Edward out of Surabaya-Indonesia purchased this Honda Prelude BB6 with very good condition, and for the longest time he was trying to decide whether to just mount a turbo on and makes daily his lady, or doing what he fortunately ended up doing. Sexy-fitted lady will be the common word that we like to use to describe this coupe. Alwafi and Daniel met up with Edward recently in one of the biggest shopping centre in Surabaya and this is what their captured.



We shall start from from those sexy blue stilleto on this stanced lady and work our way up. XXR 527 sit in 17×8.5, 9.75 all around wrapped in 205/40/17 tire on this coupe while the custom static suspension helps to brought this lady down to kissed the fenders. Ryan also made a custom camber setup to accommodate the aggressive fitment on rear side. We’re not sure about you but we would not mind daily driving this. But, Edward proved it though.


This isn’t the first set of wheels that have been on the car before I guess, and who can argue with that; the vibrant of tosca blue wheels contrast so well with the black body, make them stand out in a crowd, and draw attention to the fitment of this Prelude.



Indonesian security at those shopping centre warned us to get away from this place if we don’t have any formal permission to have shooting in this location.



Taking a look at the exterior, it is kept relatively simple and clean. But just our suggestion, keeping your rear glass off from those stickers would be great mate.


Edward wrapped his interior with the suede alcantara and gives them red-stitching accent to added more value to this lady. In several interior parts, Edward gives the carbon look to the details of this lady. Edward hopes that this interior will gives more contrast look while driving.



This stanced lady retains its sleek body lines and intended sophistication look with the addition of a OEM type S front lip, OEM side skirts, and an OEM rear ducktail; which only add to the aggressive nature of the car, without taking away from its factory appeal. The sunroof on the top of this car is an OEM part of this prelude.





As one of the SUBSTANCE former, Edward still looking to upgraded this prelude and would still learn further about best fitment to his lady. Thanks mate!!! See you soon.

She is risen – Albert’s Honda Prelude BA5 | part 1

There are few type as an icon for Honda toward Japan aesthetic than other brands. Debuted exactly twenty years ago as her born in Japan, suddenly this coupe has held our attention for several past of weeks. Considering the massive amounts of cultural change we’ve seen since the early 90′s, the Prelude BA5 serves not only as the iconic car for child’s obsession, but as a symbol of consistency for being difference if you set them up in this era.


The 3rd gen Prelude has always been a FWD (Honda typically) roadster with naturally-aspirated power, and although there have been numerous one-off creations by various tuners that have explored various other configurations, the formula remains the same as the 3th generation model that released few numbers in Indonesia.


On April 9, 1987, the third-generation Prelude was released in the Japanese domestic market and released later that year worldwide, being an 1988 model in North America. The Prelude featured innovative features for its time such as a 0.34 drag coefficient, roof pillars made of high-strength metal and its signature feature, the available option of the world’s first mechanical four wheel steering system available in a mass-production passenger car. (source : Wikipedia)


The third-generation Prelude was exclusively powered by variants of the Honda B20A engine, a base carbureted version with a SOHC 12-valve valvetrain, or a DOHC variant with Honda’s PGM-FI fuel injection and 16 valves. And have you ever heard about 4 wheel steering?

Probably you know about 4 wheel drive car, but how about 4 wheel steering? It magnificent technology drives by Honda in the past. In an active four-wheel steering system, all four wheels turn at the same time when the driver steers. In most active four-wheel steering systems, the rear wheels are steered by a computer and actuators. The rear wheels generally cannot turn as far as the front wheels. There can be controls to switch off the rear steer and options to steer only the rear wheel independent of the front wheels. And fortunetely, Albert (owner) found this car with immaculate condition. Means? Yes..the 4WS steering is still active until today.




Albert equipped his lady with the replica of Work Equip called ROTA Wheels. I dont know the Albert’s reasons why chosen this wheels. He said to me that this wheels are temporarily used until a set of brand new wheels comes up in front of his door. But who cares, this car sits perfectly on those wheels. She has very nice fitment that world nowadays called it by stance or hellaflush style.



The originality on interior side is excellent. Albert pretend not to re-trim his seat and leave them on their original leather. Bit bulky, but it made so valuable for me though.

Regarding to our plans, we would like to take a second session for this car next week. Unfortunately  Albert came too soon on last Sunday afternoon. When I talked to him, and listened his story about what ladies he have in his garage, I was surprised, and hopes that Albert will share more of his ladies in here soon.
