Kris81 K24 cl9
Daily Driver Owned by Kris81

  • This is my silver K24 cl9 accord executive, it is my daily driver covering about 3000 miles a month.
    It currently has 158000 miles on the clock.
    It's got the lot, full heated leather c/c sunroof, everything electric! And the best invention ever cruise control.

    I bought it back in Aug 2013 after I had borrowed one of my dad's cars for a year due to me selling my Audi avant to fund my new front room!

    I was originally going to view a purple cl7 in Scotland when I noticed this on my doorstep and thought I'd have a look at it as I had never looked round one before.
    So I jumped in head first and bought it!!!
    Briefly the lady who owned it used it to travel to work and home which was quite a distance, she put 50k on it in 2 years!
    Then it was parked up for nearly a year as her partner had intentions of using it as a second car to his 911!
    But he bought a Range rover instead to battle the snow.

    Before her it belonged to a Doctor, who spent a fortune on it, I have one bill for over £1400 when it had its 75000 mile service
    Then another for £500 for clutch
    Then £500 for new genuine honda exhaust!
    So I think it's been looked after.

  1. Hi - nice car well done.

    Do you know how much the car was lowered by compared to the original springs?
  2. The combination of the colour, wheels and rear spoiler make this one look pretty special.

      Thankyou, I've restrained myself from putting a bodykit on it, as I think it looks well as it is, but I often get the urge to put a Type-S front lip on!

  3. I think I'm liking the mud flaps as makes it look a lil beefier, you still happy with um? That one pic that looks like has been slightly photo shopped looks epic :Smile:

      Yeh, it was a filter on my phone, but looks good.
      I love mudflaps on a car, I've broke my front ones driving up onto little plastic ramps, they slipped on my imprint concrete drive and fired them to the back of the car taking the mudflaps with them! Lol
      I'm gonna get another pair though and put them back on.

  4. Just putting a list together of what mods I would like in the future......

    06 tsx intake cam
    J35 throttle body /TL throttle body
    Buddy club lightened pulleys
    Littlebo header and reflash
    Civic Type-R gears, 1 - 5
    Progress rear sway bar

    I think that would be my ideal set up.
  5. Next up mods wise has to be a aspec front lip I think, and lower the front abit more.

    But for now I'm happy.
    Getting rid of the winter tyres tomorrow and getting some summer ones, not sure which ones yet.
  6. Fitted my cheap cheap ebay mudflaps today, they didn't fit so good so out came the Stanley knife and now they fit spot on!

  7. I like it, gear :tut: is a fake though so I'd definitely change it for a genuine skunk2

      Thanks fella,
      As for the gear :tut:, I don't get drawn into names and brands, it looked nice and does the same Job.

      Agreed, I had 1 myself! But the genuine article is much heavier which makes it easier to shift quickly. That said aesthetically it looks good.

  8. Ha ha, just trying something different with the nuts, they were more to impress my son!

    Wheels might be up for sale soon, if I like the new ones I'm getting next week.
  9. Looks well looked after. Nice wheels too although I'm not sure about those pink wheel nuts. :Tongue:
