    Hi

    I am going to look at some 8th Generation Hondas - mainly tourers.

    If it has been repaired after an accident, how can I tell if the replacement panel EG front wing is an original honda wing rather than a non-OEM honda wing?

    i know with vws, they have a torx stamp in the channel.

    hopefully I can see the repair invoice...

    thanks

    Ahh another Southport resident 0/. Afraid I can't advise you on this but a recent Accord buyer myself and would have been nice to know a bit more of what to look out for.

    I would be surprised if they are any pattern body parts for the 8th Generation it not in the same league of the 7th Generation in popularity. you can get repairs using green parts which makes detecting repairs slight difficult.

    thanks - anyway, will take my "chips away" friend to examine. If when I get around to being properly flush!
