For you 5sp people--
If the Accord V6 was available in 5 sp, would you have still gotten Prelude?

For the SS people--
If there was no "SS" mode (just straight boring auto D4), woudl you have bought Accord V6 (or somethign else)?

I dont think i would have bought lude if it was straight auto.

If the Accord V6 came in a 5spd I would've gotten that. I love my car but I wanted more low end grunt and a real trunk when I got my car. Originally I had ordered a silver Contour SVT but I waited over a month and finally gave in and bought a 'lude. I don't regret it a bit but I'm sure I would've been happy with the SVT as well.

Excellent question, Ed!

1) If the Accord V6 were available in stick, I probably would NOT have bought it when I bought the 'Lude. But NOW, after owning a 'Lude for a little over a year, I would seriously be considering a trade!

2) If the Prelude only came in straight auto, I would NEVER have bought it. I would have either waited until I could afford a CL, or else settled for a 4 cyl. Accord coupe.

(Hmmmm, what's wrong with this picture?)

I definitely would have considered it. The V6 Accord has a sweet engine, and of course I would welcome the cubic feet the trunk has to offer. But when it comes right down to it... the reason I bought my Prelude was because of performance and exclusivity. Accords on the road are a dime a dozen! Anyone who drives a Prelude immediately falls in love with its handling! And you can't beat its low stance either. The moment you sit in it, you know you're in a performance oriented car. Also, don't get me started about the transmition! How did the guys at Car and Driver describe it.... it has a WD-40 shifter! And last but not least, you've just gotta love that high reving engine under the hood! The biggest in its class!

Considering things..i would have liked the accord V6 stick..if there was one made here.. but looking back... I should've just bought a cheap ride around car and save the rest of the money for a used Supra or a used NSX or a S2000.

i'd still pick the prelude, the coupe is too big for me, plus i like DOHC VTEC

if there's no SS mode on the auto, VTEC would be more diffcult to engage, while the V6 coupe is a better buy with loaded standard features, it'd be a tougher decision, i'll still go with the lude cuz it handles better, and i care about this more than pure acceleration. there, a totally biased opinion from your prelude fella

Maybe you missed the point of the question. We're talking about if the accord was available in a 5-speed.

Well, if you would have posed this question before I drove an Accord V6 I would have just said no. But since my gf got an accord V6 and I have now driven it, I would have to say that I would really really consider it. A 5spd Accord V6 would be pretty nice.
