    Hi All

    My name is Scott Im 32 and Im from Aberdeenshire. Im a plant mechanic by trade but i now work as a mechanic offshore.

    I've got a Honda motorbike and quad but this will be my first Honda car my previous car was a 2002 VW passat TDI which I owned for about 6.5 yrs.

    I've just put down a deposit on a 2010 Accord I DTEC Type-S with 41k miles on the clock. Its down near Nottingham and im picking it up on Thursday so i will no doubt be asking lots of questions.

    Just wanted to say hi
    Thanks
    Scott

    Welcome along Scott. I think you are going to enjoy life in your new baby....I would hazard a guess that by the time you have driven from Nottingham to I would say just around LEEDS you`ll have realised that you have chosen very wisely and have fell in LOVE:GiveRose:

    Oh she's looking great, especially with the drop and still a functional height in my eyes. Congrats @sgoaty.

    Get her added into the club garage :Smile:

    Did you lower it or was it already done? I have seen a Type-S that colour and that low before once coming out of Immingham near the refineries.

    Glad you made it on here scott.
    Welcome to the forum
    Awesome Type-S you have there and it does look awesome lowered.
    It must have so many toys on it, you must be glad for getting the 8th Generation now rather than the 7th Generation

    Has the refinement and ride quality been affected that much?

    I test drove a 2008 EX before buying this so i can only compare the 2 this definitely doesn't feel as refined suspension wise.
