    Hi all, i spent an enjoyable Saturday morning at Holdcroft Honda having brake pads fitted, whilst there i got chatting to Trish the new car sales manager and Alex from used car sales.As i have had no luck seaching for a 2011 plus used 2.4 Accord they gave the computors a bashing but could not find anything suitable, so i was given a price on a new one and a trade in price on the 7th Generation. shock one:Aghast: only one available in the country, shock two:Aghast: 16 to 20 weeks to get one from Japan [ now how you felt CJ ].

    Nothing was to much trouble for the Holdcroft sales team, and i have now decided to go for a new one just need to pick a colour.On the way home i counted 3 series BMW,s and ran out of fingers after 100 yards, if you want to be exclusive Mr BMW / Audi man buy an Accord:Wink:.

    Nice one Steve you will LOVE the car food to see another 2.4 owner soon . As for getting a 2.4 in the second hand market well tbh are as rare as rocking horse poo. You want the facelift car it's awesome.

    Oh man wish my eyes were better i would have seen the AOC top, i asked you if the black 2.2 out front was yours, you won't believe this, the only new 2.4 in the uk is Cobalt Blue and i wouldn't commit to buy it because me and the wife have never seen one in the flesh that colour, and yours was next door i can't believe it:Aghast: hope your service went ok:Thumbup:

    What colours have you had in the past I always buy the colour I have never had . I have had nearly all apart from all shades of yellow and red .

    Red is cool but all reds are known to fade .Silver well common as a house flies.

    Whites are for all the drug dealers and posers.

    I've had White, Black, [ same car resprayed] medium Blue. Dark Green, Gold, light green, Red, light Blue, always wanted Silver, but wife and me like Black for the Accord But back injury might restrict cleaning every other day with Black, so silver seems to be edging it at the moment
     
  17. Paul Expert Advisor ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Go for the dark grey. It wasn't on your list.

    Great news Steve.

    CJ's experience is that it's a massive step up from the 7th so I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    No point waiting forever for a second hand one that may or may not have been thrashed.
