    Welcome to HK @Robert Eden :welcome:
    There are lots of 6th Generation owners on here, so you're in the best place.
    Those pictures aren't too clear, but it looks like she could do with a little TLC.
    Looking forward to seeing how you get on.

    I was hoping that was going to be 1 answer as I know nothing about Hondas I've been a ford / alfa owner

    I was referring to the drop links really. The rest looks great value for such a high spec Accord.
    Hope all goes well tomorrow.

    Welcome Rob, good price you picked up that CG9 for - big spec list.

    Yeah drop-links can actually be a big pain some of the time, and the angle grinder can even come into play.

    Generally the 6th Gens are very reliable, give her a thorough look over tomorrow and let us know your thoughts. We're all here to help :Smile:

    Welcome aboard, hope the Accord turns out to have been a good buy.

    BTW, that looks like a nice Alfa 155 in your avatar. Or is it a 75, can't quite see.

    Rite I've just checked my oil in the car and it's reading empty so I'm guessing no oil to the VTEC system hence limp home mode

    How was the oil level when you bought her? Was it ok before you started to drive her away?
