    I simply get a new custom entire exhaust system, here are some shots comparing:

    Also, you need the aluminium heatsink for the secondary ¿silencer? (don't know the exact word), its marked in red in one of the schematics.

    Now, I think putting the 2.4 exhaust will be the best way to do that.

    Thanks for your comments!

    OMG, I didn't see the comments upside. My replies:

    @Ichiban: Lighting mod its done, but now Im selling the car (to change it for an Accord Tourer 2.4 hehehe) and Im going to install them on the new car. Mods are: LEDs for high-beam, bi-xenon for low and high beam, LED for DRL/parking lights and turn signal. Some photos:

    She keeps getting better and better. I'd say moving to a K24 is a good idea as well, long as you pick up where you left off and port everything across! :Wink:

    Thanks guys, I've found a great K24 with 40000 km (less than 25K miles) from middle of 2009, in mint condition, from a great Spanish forum user.

    I'm not sure I can get that car, I need to sell mine in about 20000€ to get money for buying the other car, but I have a little hope I can sell it before Tourer is sold.

    Some photos of the next car:

    What a beauty, K24 EX with optional Sports Bodykit :dribble: 20,000€ would be a great price for yours, over here you'd get £9-12k for a 2011 dependent on mileage.

    In UK Honda prices are better, here in Spain base price for Type-S was 33000€, I buyed some extras for 750€... but there are also Accords with Luxury finish about 14000€... less but a lot more mileage.

    Thanks for your replies :Smile:

    Two years out of that old girl you are a bit optimistic bud, hope you can strecth that girl. TBH you could find a white tourer as for ADAS that will be hard to locate.
