    Hi all,

    I've been in the North West for a few days (Chester) and was amazed to see how many Accords there are up there - mainly 7th generation but quite a few 8th as well.

    Down here (Bucks) my car is like the proverbial hen's tooth...where do we think the "hot spots" are for Accord ownership (and therefore where is the most sensible car buying public in UK?!) :Unknown:

    Everybody round this way seems utterly obsessed with BMW/Audi/Mercedes...:Aghast:

    Quite a few in North west London. But a lot more German trash.

    For me it was a case of never noticing them until I bought one.

    Can't say I took much notice beforehand, but I see loads of them now.... However, I do live near Springfield Honda in Durham, so that probably 'ups' my sightings.

    Up North bud keeping up appearances with Jones (German heaps) is not a priority , but quality of car.( Japanese preferably Honda)

    A man down south is known by the car they drive not the character. Say a lot about Northerners.

    Agree..

    On our recent trip to Somerset to pass the time the kids were looking out for Accords and waving at all those we passed, without exception they all waved back :Grin:

    Friendly bunch these Accord drivers..

    I parked up in Dunster one morning and as norm found the most remote isolated spot and left the car.. This is what was there when I got back.. I left a Club leaflet and sticker on his screen, my daughter took the pic and yes I know I am over two bays but the car park was still almost empty when I got back to the car and there was a shed load of mud just out of shot to the left.. HONEST ! There were only the 3 cars in the whole car park..

    No she won't drive the car if I am in it :Blink: Apparently I moan too much about her driving!! (TOO DAMN FAST) Yeah like I would dare... :Whistle:

    No just to left is a access to a bridal way, being National Trust it is not the best maintained so thought it best to leave some space. Plus it was muddy...

    I wouldn't normally park like I drove a BMW ........
