    hi there

    Just introducing myself, my name is Tim and I live in Hertfordshire and have recently bought myself a Honda Accord exec 2.4 2011.
    Love the car and found every excuse to go driving this weekend. The noise it makes is fantastic when you hit the revs higher up in the range. It can also be a very refined drive if you want it to be..

    I find the car very impressive and ignored a lot of the online negative reviews a lot of which I put down to badge snobbery comparing with the likes of BMW and Audi.. after having owned the 2003 accord executive and how happy I was with that, I was pretty confident what to expect.

    Would be good to hear from some fellow accord owners in the uk and their views in the car.

    Thanks everyone

    I'll get some pictures up in the next day or two.
    I found it in a nice blue with black interior: although not sure which code as I know there are a few different blue factory colours. It must tell me somewhere.

    Hi Tim

    Welcome to HK
    I owned my CU2 over 4 years and i am very happy with it.
    Mine is Cobalt Blue above in the picture that Nels posted.

    Open your passenger side front door on the B pillar you will your VIN plate the colour code of the car is indicated there. Then just look at the poll and the colour codes are along side the actual names.

    Welcome Tim, I have the CW2 the Tourer version and like you I find it the best Accord till date in every department it's just brilliant. I still have the 7th Generation accord but that seems not in the same league as the 8th Generation.

    Thanks for your comments, I'll make sure I get some more pictures up in the next day or two. Drove it to work this morning for the first time still haven't figured out what all the buttons do!
    It's a lovely place to sit though. It came with the sat nav option so trying to figure out how to get all the speakers sounding balanced can't hear much from the rear speakers and sub which I understand is fitted.
