Accord CL9 Pre-Facelift
Daily Driver Owned by tUMi

  • This is my first Honda I have ever owned, a pre-facelift 7th Generation CL9 with K24A3 engine, year model 2006. Colour is Indigo Blue Pearl.

    I have owned the car for almost 2 years now. It has 2 previous owners (I'm the 3rd owner now), car had only about 45 000 miles (= about 73 000 kilometers) driven when I bought it from the used car dealership.

    It's an Executive spec level model without Sat Nav and leather interior (in Finland a spec level called Executive X was sold which contained leather interior and Sat Nav system since facelift came out). No on-board computer or service indicator on my car, because it's a pre-facelift (only facelift models contained on-board computer and service indicator)

    The car is in fully stock form except the stock suspension has been upgraded to Koni Sport Kit (35mm lowering front/rear). There's also a few other minor additions or modifications. For example, I have fitted an Spoon gear knob (Duracon), Spoon magnetic drain bolts for engine and transmission and the Alutec front strut bar. The original 16" Honda OEM alloy wheels have been replaced with much sportier and better looking 17" Honda OEM alloy wheels (Inferno). Also a few Mugen additions have been done, such as the radiator and oil filler caps and the carbon fiber coil ignition cover (only genuine Spoon and Mugen parts fitted to my car, fake parts are definite no-no!).

    I have also fitted some white LED lights in interior (doors and ceiling), luggage boot trunk and license plate. They look a lot better than the standard yellow bulbs and replacing was very easy. Specific details of the modifications and parts fitted on a car are listed in Modifications tab if anyone's interested.
