    Greetings all.

    Just thought I'd share a few recent images of my new body kit I had fitted from the superb folks at HH.

    Bit hard to tell from the pics, but I don't think the car needs lowering. Would like to procure the 18" Type-S wheels rather than the other 18" ones Honda lists. Next project is just a visual exhaust tip, which I have been meaning to do for ages but just never gotten around to doing.

    Car hasnt been washed or detailed so excuse the filth! (Sodding weather doesnt help either!)

    Enjoy!

    Looks smashing I wish Honda would make the sports grill compatible with the millimetre radar behind the H logo. Then that completes the sporty look on the 8th Generation,

    Zoran has the entire kit on his car and it looks the BUSINESS.

    Yes I have seen Zorans car and it looks fantastic. And yes its a bit of a shame the sports grille isnt ADAS-compatible, but maybe future revisions to the line up could change that.

    I dunno Zoran. I don't like the Storms or Delta's to be honest. I do however have a craving for the Type-S wheels, as well as the ones listed in the sticky but it seems they're not compatible with diesels.

    Saj

    Flash alloys are very rare and are not known that well as of yet.we have seen them on a 7th Generation accord and they look really nice. Alternatively wait for the 2013 accessories they will be here in 4-5 months they will be newer designs .

    Yes those look the bizzo as well. At the moment, I am quite happy with the OEM ones now. They don't look out of place and in my opinion they suit the car well. Although waiting for newer designs is definitely an option.

    Saj Just to give you an indication where Honda alloy wheel design is going forward,these are the current offering on the new Civic. I would expect the 2013 Accord design to take a similar design cues.


    17inch Alloys


    Radium part number 08W17-TV0-600A
    4289.

    Cobalt part number 08W17-TV0-600



    4288.

    18 Inch Alloys

    Hydrogen 18 part number 08W18-TV0-600A

    4291.

    Krypton part number 08W18-TV0-600

    Agreed it would be nice if they did a bigger version of it.

    BTW, any chance you have the part number for the Type-S 18" Accord alloys?

    Dunno why, but their simplicity looks fantastic and suits the Accord like no other in my view.

    Super mate, thank you.

    Wish they were £447.54 altogether! :Wink:

    Will give them a bell in the coming weeks. I'm still convalescing from "open wallet surgery" given the kit I had fitted!!

    Saj if they were that price I would have two set myself.:Wink: Personally the 18 inch tyre becoming so expensive its hardly a cost effective mod.
