    Thanks zoran. The white is really eye catching.

    Yes this was already in Honda stock in the UK. There were no 2.4s in the country and they said that there was no indication when, if any, would be available.

    They did everything they could to get me the Accord I wanted.:GoodJob: Yes I-DTEC wasn't my preference but this was the only one they could get in White Orchid. Other colours were 2.0 in black and Graphite luster nice colours but not much different to the volcano grey I had unless you know the colours well or see the cars side by side and I wanted a totally different colour.

    Or they could get me I-DTEC Autos in Polished Metal or Carnelion Red.

    The new car smell of a New Accord I can sell one my kidneys for it.. the 7th Generation new car smell lasted for three years .. sadly the 8th Generation is on its last legs.. I may nip up to have a sniff at your John.

    Honda are missing a trick they need to market that smell in any format.!!

    The new Accord smell is the best. Was just sat in the car before taking in lung-fulls of it... Perhaps it's addictive? :lol:

    Looks fantastic John, Stainless steel door step garnish would look brilliant against the white colour.

    Thanks srgibbs. The illuminated garnish is great. Wish they'd done this when I got my last 8th Generation. Love it when it's dark it gives out such a bright glow that lights up the whole interior.

    ^^I still do that after 18 months! Sad, or just one nice looking car...?:Wink:

    Congratulations, the I-DTEC is a peach of an engine, sure you'll be fully converted to the joys of DERV (what ever happened to calling diesel that?!) shortly...:Thumbup:
