Guys thinking of buying a Lude to be used as a daily driver.

However i have no experience with this vehicle.

Basically is it expensive to maintain? Is it fuel efficient? Super or premium?
Are parts difficult to source or very expensive?

Car has a F22 engine (not sure if f22a or b) (pbb series)

Always loved the look of these cars, need some replies soon, both my VRG's are down, one currently having a full vr4 conversion done and my daily driver (gdi) is having an engine overhaul, doing most of the work myself and time is an issue so i need something to get me around.

great on gas, once you drive like a human

can't advise on anything else really, except engine parts should be fairly easy to source because a couple of the accords also carry this engine. i've seen prelude front cuts in the bamboo randomly.

not much help but it's my 2cents

I always loved those preludes.. if the F22 you have there a F22b1 or B2?
B2 is non-vtec and is almost identical to the F20B2 that came in the local cd4 accords (including mine)

You shouldnt have trouble sourcing parts if you ever need...

F22B2.. Bulletproof reliability, ok economy, decent power.. SUPER easy to get parts for, especially if you have a link to import from the states..

enjoy and good luck.. I love those ludes...
