    I have the heiko ones. They clip under the rubber seal instead of the other type that stick to the outside of the door.

    I think if you get the ones that don't cover up the chrome they then look like part of the car and look like OEM.

    Just been looking at these myself. The heiko ones look pretty good coming in at £32.90 whereas the Mugen ones are between £140-£180 quiet a difference and probably the only difference is that there will be mugen on the Mugen ones.

    For £30 you can't go wrong. Its a subtle mod too. Well may be my roof and boot spoiler plus side mouldings take the attention off them a bit:Unknown:

    I just ordered a set of the genuine Honda door visor set
    the part number I ordered was: 08R04SEA601
    ordered at £127.40 posted.
    Much preferred having the originals as a few people bought climair and heiko ones and they flew off the car. lol

    Whats the difference between the 08R04-SEA-600

    Yeah will do.
    Lead time is 6 weeks though as they say there is no more stock in Europe so have to wait until a new shipment comes in from japan
    I have lots of other things to do on the accord so I didn't mind the wait

    Also looking to install a set of dolphin rear parking sensors (enquired with Honda and the OEM set is £450) I was like hmmmm that's quite pricey.
    Dolphin set won a few awards and seem like a good reliable kit with a good customer support for spare parts

    Also looking to get the boot liner tray accessory

    Yeah. its quite abit to do, the missus is really supportive which is nice. Done half of the work already, been writing the log in tandem so should be posting that up very soon. Its quite hard as the Prelude isn't getting any attention now. lol

    Mugen rear lip will be nice. Your accord Type-S looks mint. Was really leaning towards getting the type accord but I still wanted to keep the Prelude so went for the diesel instead.

    I have the HEKO ones

    The fronts are spot on, but the rears are now trying to make a bid for freedom despite the clips being fitted.
