    Hey guys,

    Some of you will have met me at the Accord meet Stoke. Since then I've done a few upgrades to my car. You may have seen I found a dual-exhaust pipe at a breakers which I purchased for a small £100, bargain compared to some online.
    I've done a few pics of my car, it's got Eibach Pro Springs, Custom Exhuast, DC Sports intake, XENON headlight conversion + Blue interior LED door lights.

    Looking very good Valkia! :Thumbup: What percentage tints are applied on your windows? They looked really great when I saw your car at HH meet :Wink:

    Windows are 80% on the tint, I'm still pondering over that Mugen wing like you have! I do love it

    Your type-S badge on the front, is it clip on? Or is it adhesive?

    Nope, engine is all stock. It's £350 for any remaps, which is a little pricey for only up to +15BHP.

    Front grille badge is attached by two little srews from a back side. No glue, no tape - just srews and correct positioning. I had to take off the whole grille to do that.
    IMAG0585. IMAG0623. $(KGrHqUOKn!E5-))yB)JBOqvDHU(I!~~60_12.

    I've purchased it from Honda Bristol at that time.
    Type-S front emblem was £42.68 (part no. 75732-SEA-Z01)
    Srew for emblem x 2 = £3.29 (part no. 93903-422J0)

    Do some research, maybe you can find it a bit cheaper somewhere else. Ebay or even HH may sell it with discount.

    By the way, by 80% I might have meant 20%. You hear different figures, but it's how much you can see inside, not how dark it is. Pretty sure I had 20%

    CJ, maybe you know the reason why so many Type-S Accords came without badges? It looks really nicely on the grille, strange that only intro model of 2002-2003 had it on as standard.

    It's so confusing sometimes indeed... lol. So for example factory tint on front sides are 30% of tint, making 70% light going thru, right? That is legal for fronts. :Smile: So your rear windows must be 80% of tint, leaving 20% light going thru? Or no? :Wassat:

    Nice front end on your car there Ichiban! I have that front grille on it's way for my '08 Tourer, but where did you get that front lip/spoiler from? Or was it factory fitted?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Hi Jon

    seen your other thread bud I got the entire kit front skirt ,side skirts and rear skirts for my tourer in 2008 The price I don't recall but I can dig up the part numbers shortly for you .

    The front skirt is not factory fit bud but part of the body kit you can get from Honda.

    That would be fantastic if you can dig up the part numbers for me. Much appreciated!

    The Tourer is a great car IMO but just needs a little tarting up, especially in the graphite pearl colour so it will stand out a little :Smile:

    Thanks again for the help, apologies for the thread hijack! :Foolish:

    Jon

    You can say it either way, 80% means block 80% of the light. 20% means you allow 20% light through, both equate to same thing.

    I thought it was 100%, meaning front window tints are actually illegal? :Blink: Could be wrong...
