My Honda Accord 2006 i-CTDi 4 Door Ex Diesel Saloon
Daily Driver Owned by Accord_N22

  • Hi Guys

    I thought I should start a project log for my 2006 Honda Accord I-CDTI 4 Door Saloon
    I recently purchased a 2006 Honda Accord I-CDTI 4 door Ex Saloon on the 6th April 2014.

    Specification:
    Model: Accord
    Year: 56 (2006)
    Trim: Executive (Ex)
    Body Type: 4 Door Saloon
    Transmission: Manual
    Mileage at Purchase: 108,114
    Engine: Standard i-CTDi N22A1
    Wheels: Epsilon 17 inch Alloy wheels with Dunlop Blue Response Tyres (225/45/R17) 94W (XL)
    Interior: Full leather interior with all Executive features
    Bodywork/ exterior: Nighthawk Black B92P
    Lighting: Osram Ultralife H1 Bulbs, Osram Amber Side Light 501 Bulbs
    Security: Standard OEM System

    Please see below comments for my progress, I won't be modifying it all (the wife would kill me - lol) but it will be more of a project to restore and maintain the car to a clean OEM tidy state. it will also serve the purpose for the future family car. (When the time comes) :Smile:

    I have been very busy working on the car for the past couple of months getting it up to scratch and sorting out all the various issues it had upon purchase, here is how she stands today. See the project log which I have added to see what I have been up too.

      The buttons on the left side control the voice activation and handsfree bluetooth, the buttons on the lower right hand side toggles through the on dash computer i.e trip computer, average and live MPG readings, miles remaining in fuel tank, average speed and setting speed alarms.
