    Hi fellas, thought i'd post up some pics of my sisters Accord with 21000 genuine kms. She's had it for a few years now and bought it from the original owners family.

    When it arrived from Sydney, (sister's in Western Australia) the first thing was to fit a set of new tyres as it still had the original Yokohamas on which were cracked and perished. And it had some really crappy aftermarket mirrors on so a drivers Matsuyama was found and fitted (minus the gasket unfortunately)

    Luckily the crappy mirror on the drivers side used the factory holes but the passenger side had extra holes drilled :Frown: So have been looking for a left mirror to fill those holes for the last 3 years and have only just found a great pair of mirrors (including correct gaskets) from the other side of the country!! Still haven't been fitted but will put some updated pics up later on.

    And if anyone has some available the car had only a front set of mudflaps so wouldn't mind getting a pair for the rear. One's to match these:

    And I know it's a very very long shot but would like to get some OEM floormats like these:

    Car could do with some tidying under the bonnet but apart from that is like brand new.
    Cheers, Glenn.
