    Hello,

    I'm a Spanish user from CHS forum. I've registered here to see more info about this awesome car. I've a 2011's Honda Accord Type-S I-DTEC 180hp with some mods. Some photos:

    Custom DRL 6x1W:

    accord20111108front.

    Dual exhaust with OEM tips:

    Also I have full LEDized all the car (I think I don't have any halogen bulb anymore except for high beam-for the moment), installed OEM rear parking sensors, changed OEM bulbs to OSRAM 66240 CBI 5000K (I buyed them in UK), installed aluminium door granish and headlight chrome lips (not in the photos), and the next I'll install its a CarPC with a 7" IPS touchscreen 1280x800 with custom developed software (inav).

    Also I'm in process of a custom retrofit for headlights:

    LED high beam (flash-to-pass) 4x CREE XML-T6 (9W each) LEDs:

    3x 1W White LEDs for DRL:

    6x 1W Amber LEDs for blinkers:

    And 2.5" FX-R 2.0 Bi-xenon projectors running with Morimoto 5five 50W ballasts:

    Hope you like it. :OTT:

    Thanks IchibanAccord,

    I've just uploaded some photos to the garage. I don't think it will be the Car of the Month because I don't finished my retrofit, and the photos are a lot old, and I need to do some newer ones.

    I see your 1977's Accord and I think it needs more mileage :Smile:

    Do you send it to Spain? If its ok, I will PM you.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Come and drive it here :Smile:

    Now I live in Murcia (a province from it) and its always sunny, great for riding the car, its more than 300 sunny days a year with an average temperature of 21 degrees Celsius... and the 250 km of beaches.

    Thanks for the welcomes, if you want to see some of the retrofit work ASAP, I shared a lot of photos here:

    If you ask for some translation of the images text, I will do so pleased, to the limits of my poor English.

    Thanks to all!
