    Well, I've finally picked up my Accord, having been pestering people on here for a few weeks with questions and queries.

    Here are some pics of my new ride. It's a 55 plate which is a little older than I wanted, but only 78k on the clock. It is a very early facelift, being registered as a demonstrator on 01/01/06 at Marshalls Honda of Peterborough. It has spent it's life then being owned by people in and around Marshalls, so has a full service history with them and is a "known" car.

    Marshalls have done a grand job of preparing it and fully resprayed the rear bumper and tailgate moulding to remove a few deep parking scrapes (maybe that's why parking sensors had been fitted?) - not quite a 100% colour match - though it seems to depend on the light - a collegue says that metallics on plastic are very hard to match - especially silver? They also managed to remove a ding on one door on the swage line - very difficult to do effectively.
    The car now looks pristine!

    Like those Blades - think I'll stick with my Penta's - otherwise tyres too pricey!

    Hi Pete,
    I have been actively looking for a tourer estate diesel and saw this one advertised. Never looked at it because it was snapped up. But fear not I have not found my car. A 57 plate tourer diesel hopefully we will have a trouble free car for a few years.
    This site seems great for any little problem or questions you may have.
    I like the look of the Penta alloys better than the standard ex rims. I have these on mine too. No problems with tram lining upto yet as stated on here by some.
    Anyways Pete good luck with your new purchase......
  6. Hi Pete and welcome.

    Nice looking car, and facelifts don't get any earlier than that!

    Glad you managed to find another!
    Enjoying the car so far, I get occasional tramlining with the Pentas, but nothing major. I think it depends a lot on tyres.
    Enjoy you Accord!!
