    Hi all, just a quick hello to introduce myself. My name is Jono and I've recently bought an Accord 1.8. Had a Civic Aerodeck previously which I got rid of for a Ford Focus (yeah yeah, I know) which proceeded to go very wrong very quickly and rather expensively.

    Back where I belong with a Honda now!

    Look forward to speaking to some of you and helping out with issues and hopefully resolving any of my own! Cheers!

    Welcome to Honda Karma Jono and welcome back to Honda as well :Grin:

    Looks like a lovely mint example of an Accord you've found there.

    Thanks a lot! It's really not in bad nick for a 15 year old car. Few cosmetic bits, and the potential issue I'm discussing on the 6th Generation forum (SpeedyGee thanks for the input) but apart from them it's great. And for £495 I'm not complaining.

    Quick question, did all automatic Accords of this generation come with a tiptronic gearbox or was that an optional extra? Same regarding leather interior. Cheers!

    Cheers guys! When I've got some time this weekend I'm going to get in and give everything a fettle and a clean, few scuffs and the tiniest rust bubble on a wheel arch that are bugging me already, so I'll be getting those in order before anything else!

    I play all sorts mate really, but I'm fronting a metal band at the minute called Beneath Broken Skies, and I'm mainly using an Explorer at the minute! What about yourself? uploadfromtaptalk1439467135030.

    Welcome, what trim level is your Accord? Not all of them came with leather interiors, as for the gearbox I'm not entirely sure but I'm think not.
