    Hi my name is charles and i bought my 1st honda, it is a 2001 honda accord SE Exec, and for what it was and with 12 months MOT it only cost me £400 with no problems at all, just a slight dent on passenger side rear door.

    Welcome to Honda Karma Charles.

    Your Accord is looking in pretty decent nick, apart from in the last picture where she seems to have turned into a Vauxhall :crazyeyes:

    Why don't you add her to the Club Garage area.

    Accords get better with each generation but each generation is always class leading for it's time.

    And they love being revved as well. You won't get that harsh sounding feeling you get when you rev a Vauxhall.

    I've had my sisters Vauxhall Zafira in my garage many a time. Had to drop a replacement engine in it once after one of the pistons had a hole blown through it.

    I also noticed vauxhalls use a plastic rocker cover, as the astra i had it had split, and a friend has a Zafira GSI and he revved it like mad and his rocker cover split, and engine elso blew after 6 months owning it.

    Did you by any chance set fire to the Vauxhall after dousing it in petrol and laughing hysterically as its tyres popped and the lacquer started to melt away? Or is that just me?

    Welcome to HK, good choice of car.

    I think there must be a reason why every Vauxhall owner I have known wishes extreme bodily harm to their Vauxhalls....

    Yep :Smile:, technicly the honda belonged to a family member who owned it from new so only 67k on clock, but he bought a new honda and just wanted the accord gone, so i offered him 400 and he accepted, cheapest i paid for a car and the best out of every car i owned.
