    I was in the US a few weeks back after quite a few years and got some 'Acura' photos to share. The NAS accord has been a top seller there for many many years and I noticed they sell it as an American car (?) but I think it may be heavily customised for US.

    Enjoy!

    It's a bit strange to see no front registration in some states

    This car magazine was comparing the US accord (rated highly) with the 3-series:

    Here we go...
    • There's always plenty of room for you to swing open doors comfortably on either side in a car park bay
    • Fuel is cheap
    • Engines are big... Accord V6 is not uncommon
    • Roads are wider
    • There is just so much space
    • A brand new Accord starts from $23k :eek: (at list price)

    ..all in all its a driver's paradise and I'd rate it equally with Dubai when it comes to enjoying driving

    Agree, I think we petrol owners have been getting conned for a long time with CO2 emissions, my Accord never bellowed out a cumulonimbus of black crap.
