    Thanks glad I made the right choice by the way can I ask a quick sneeky question I got the 2.4 S-type now in all fairness I have no clue what the S-Type part gives me over other models so if you have a moment please share lol.

    Oh and for want of lack of details I got a:

    Honda Accord 2.4 I-VTEC S-type 2005. 56k miles on the clock and Dark Grey type colour. Seems decent only things I can ever see being done are mostly changes of types don't know if these models eat them lol. :Smile:

    Oh the price was £4900 (in case I got ripped off you can tell me here lol)

    12 months MOT as well.

    Thanks and yeah seems great so far. I have had just about everything in truth from a 1988 Porsche 924S, Ford Fiesta 1st Generation and modern, Nissan Micra 1986 lol, BMW, Ford Mondeo, Ford Focus, Audi A3, Land Rover Discovery Tdi 300, Vauxhall corsa, Renault 5, Peugeot 205, etc, etc, etc.

    This is my first Honda so far so good Been trying to find info of any kind I can like Mods that are good, problems etc can't find a whole lot on these cars? Dunno if there are not many mods or if these cars suffer from very few problems but not finding a lot.

    I did notice in my service history the guy that had it seemed to go through a lot of tyres? Liked to drive hard or something to do with these cars? :Smile:

    Yeah they can suffer from rear camber issues .. see this link http://hondakarma.com/posts/20479/

    - - - Updated - - -

    Actually thats not a good thread for info. Basically due to wear and tear they develop a camber on the rear.

    To fix this you can either put in a new rear camber arm (these have been redesigned) or you can get adjustable camber links and have laser alignment done to correct the camber.
