Ebay is your best source for those. Search 'Honda Inspire' for window visors. Don't know about the lip. There is a member parting out his car. He has those visors for much cheaper than ebay. Check out his thread in photograph section..

Edit: Here is the link to his part out..

Welcome

I have photos in the photo gallery. No one ever posted in my threads except Tony.

There are many things that you can do to your TL.

First, clean it.

Second, think what kind of them do I want to go with.

Third, start with simple mods (i.e. Debadge, fog light mod, LEDs, clear bumpers, intake resonator removal, Inspire tail lights)

Fourth, think okay what kind of suspension should I go with and that answer will be... most likely shocks and Ground Control coilover sleeves.

Fifth, enjoy your car because it is a really nice car to have.

It's the Value Sports lip available only in Japan for about USD$1500 before shipping.

~Cheers~

P.S. No one drives the 1G. It's why I like it.

Parts are really expensive because the car is older and they stopped making the parts. So now that the parts are rare, the price is higher. Also the only parts that we can get for our cars are shipped from Japan. So you are looking at like $60+ for shipping almost every time and then the price you are paying for the product.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how much you pay as long as you are happy.

That is because a lot of those cars are also rice mobile and turned to shit. Just like any car, there are people that make it look nice and then there are people that make it a rice mobile. Also it depends on how many are manufactured and how much they went/go for now.

well i dont want manufactures that makes body kits they just make it worse, all i want is manufactures that can make these cool lips and cool stuff for our cars, maybe if we contact some manufactures and we give them a good a good quantity of customers(us of course) thay may start a production, what do you guys think?

Hey Tlin do u think manufacturers dont make parts for our cars because it's probably too expensive or there's just not enough demand? I mean if you look at the difference between oem honda and acura parts youll see a huge Diff. Because look at all the parts available for the 90-2000 accords and look at how many 94 accord cb7 owners have their cars nicely modded even though they drive a 14 yr. old car

You can thank Sad and Ridiculous, and the fact that your motor was the exact same motor in the Evo III, and its derivatives were in MANY other DSMs.

There weren't many of these cars made thanks to the trade embargo in 1995.

I will keep the truth about CBs and their popularity to myself. It will be seen as racist.

But mentioning CBs and CDs, look at that year range; 10 years of the SAME parts almost ALL fitting. We've got 3 years for the UA3s and 4 years for the UA2s. Most things don't fit any other platform. What makes more sense economically?

~Cheers~

lol go90go i know what your thinking about the cb part..


Where I was going comparing the Cb's and our Tl's is that look at how old those Cb's are and they're still considered as nice mod cars by some. But when it comes to the 1g with all due respect to the ones who think otherwise i think its a DOPE car to drive thats not ancient you know

There def isn't enough demand for parts. We could get people to say that they would like parts, but how many would actually dish out the cash? That is the problem. If people would do it then there would be more parts.

Many of the Accord suspensions and parts are interchangeable so that is why those parts are still in existence. Accord suspensions will fit on our cars. It is just a matter or finding what you want. You can get GC coils for about $250 I think and then shocks for $200-$700 all depending on what brand you use.

The 3.2 also has interchangeable parts with the Legend. IMO we can have VERY, VERY unique cars. No one will look the same or have the same parts. Yes we all may look a like but no one else on the road will look like you after you mod.

You can also come up with different mods that no one has ever thought of or even work off of mods to make them better (ie. the fog light mod). How creative you are trying to get is the question. So think outside of the box and don't let it look like But always remember, the mods that you do, others may not like so be ready to take criticism on here because there are always critics. I will be the first to say that I have been a critic and almost everyday. :critic: When you give your opinion you can help the OP improve or just piss them off.

There are def a good number of mods that can be done even though we may not have tons like other cars do.

Also I would love to have a 3.2 bumper. It would make my car complete sex. You will find something just be patient.
