    02 NSX - Should I keep OEM Parts

    I bought an 02 NSX in perfect condition from FL with 16k miles on it. The owner has done some modifications but kept every part taken off the car. For example:

    Downforce front chin spoiler & side rocker panels
    Seibion TR rear spoiler
    Stance coil over adjustable suspension
    HKS computer monitoring system in Honda Nav Pod
    Savinni's 20's in the rear and 19's in the front
    iPhone hookup cable - factory radio
    Push button start

    I have ALL the original parts, I paid just under 1k to ship all the parts from FL fedex to me in MA. I am storing them in the Garage. Should I sell them since they all are relatively new or hag on to them

    I am thinking some day if I sell the car (Maybe Never) it will be worth more?

    What does prime think?

    Easy answer. Keep OEM parts, return to OEM upon resale. Then sell aftermarket parts.

    Anyone who tells you different just wants your OEM parts.

    Re: 02 NSX - Should I keep OEM Parts

    I absolutely believe you should keep them if you are concerned with resale value. There are more buyers interested in original cars and if you do end up selling the car in the future I think you would be glad you held onto them.

    Re: 02 NSX - Should I keep OEM Parts

    It's always a good idea to keep the OEM parts. Imagine buying a 67 Corvette that was highly modified (new engine, seats, wheels) and then they guy says "oh by the way, I have the original seats, OEM knockoffs and the original 427 big block with the three two barrel carb set up". How happy would you be?

    The NSX will be in the same league as the Corvette (if not more collectible..less made). Keep the OEM stuff.

    Re: 02 NSX - Should I keep OEM Parts

    Keep without question. You've already paid to have them shipped to you. For the amount you will get from selling, you'll never be able to replace them (especially painted body panels) and later on, like others have said you may want to return to OEM, or OEM with a twist (even NSX-R look). In addition, when you sell it you will make out MUCH better selling the car in stock form, and selling off ALL the aftermarket parts. OEM car's always fetch much better money down the road.

    Keep em. In case you ever have to sell, it's nice to have the original parts. Besides, 19/20 on a stock body... not sure how long you'll like that look.

    Re: 02 NSX - Should I keep OEM Parts

    Keep for sure. Made the mistake of selling a lot of my oem s2000 parts for aftermarket, hated it at resale time.

    Keep the parts if you ever intend to sell the car.

    First thing I would do is put the factory wheels back on and get rid of the 19/20s
    Keep the rest!

    +1 Have to agree that the factory wheels are really nice unless you have "other" goals for the car

    Correct wheels ensure that you can use the car near it's limits

    ...and isn't that the point of owning a sports car in the first place, DRIVE IT
