I payed $225 for the ones in my 93 and $200 for the ones in my 91.

However there is a company in Korea that is believed to have made the originals or have the molds to the originals and they are now making them at around the cost of what I payed for mine. The currency converted to USD is $121 IIRC. I have talked with them and shipping to the US is $81. Below are the links.

92/93

90/91

They come from Malaysia. I have a connect over there who I frequently talk with and he has confirmed that they are legit.

And once you have an arm rest its hard to go without one. Luckly both my 4th gens have them. My 91 I got the arm rest when I did my black leather SE interior swap.

2010 Odyssey EX - 40k mi
1996 Ford Ranger XLT - 118k mi
2007 Nissan Pathfinder SE - 72k mi

Yeah, I just took one.
Note: When it got a new engine/transmission (before I bought it), they rolled it back to 10k

You do know that is a federal offense right? Just letting you know. Don't be too surprised if you run into trouble the next time you get a state inspection. Or if you sell it and the buyer gets a Carfax. At either of those times the true mileage will be shown and you will be held legally responsible because it happened in your possession. And the Carfax and state records will show that as well.

Its called Odometer Fraud.

Even if you were to tell a seller that the odometer is off, you could not provide accurate mileage of the vehicle. Which still poses a problem.

This is the federal law on odometer tampering: Resetting, disconnecting or altering a vehicle's odometer to conceal the true mileage is known as odometer tampering. No person shall adjust, alter, change, tamper with, advance, set back, disconnect or fail to connect an odometer of a motor vehicle, or cause any of these to occur with the intent to alter the number of miles registered on the odometer. It is illegal for anyone to engage in odometer tampering or sell a vehicle knowing the odometer has been altered.

Odometer tampering comes with up to 5 years in prison and up to a $5000 fine.


I'm just telling you this so you know. It does not matter to me one way or the other I'm just informing you of what can happen so if it does happen it won't sneak up on you.

Thanks for the info!
The true mileage is documented, and was completely undisclosed by the person that sold it. I assume that law is to avoid fraud.
I'll check into more info on that. The last state test, which was under the last owner, passed with no issue.

Does that law still apply to vehicles over 10 years old? The DMV usually just puts mileage "EXEMPT" on the title if the vehicle is 10 years or older...

1990 Honda Accord LX coupe
130,XXX miles


1989 Honda Accord LX sedan
186,XXX miles


1998 Lexus GS400
170,XXX miles


1992 Cadillac Allante
70,XXX miles


2013 Kia Optima LX
8,xxx miles

Here in Georgia, that only applies for "senior citizens...whose cars are 10 model years old or older". Otherwise, "Vehicles 25 years or older are exempt from testing".

Whoever reset the odometer did a good job by the way. The numbers go like: |1|2|3|4|5|6| but every odometer I have ever seen that was tampered with looked like this \1\/2/\3\/4/\5\/6/. Kind of like jagged teeth as the rollers with the numbers did't set straight anymore. So props to who ever did that!
