Hi guys, Firstly just to say what a good forum this is, such a mixed bag out there and this is one of the friendlier ones (big fan of the MCM forum too). I will soon be purchasing a Accord 7th Generation CM2 (think thats right, the 2.4 Type-S tourer?!) it seems to fit the bill perfectly for what I am looking for (estate, fun, reasonably quick if needed, reasonably good MPG if nursed!) and think they look great too. Best friend is an ex Honda tech and has nothing but praise for Honda and he loves the Accords too so that's always a good sign. Any tips on looking at second hand ones would be great, read through Ichiban's guide to boot issues, set my mind at ease somewhat. will be giving everything a good service unless can obviously see things recently done (as in just done!) Plans will be the Xlink thing for aux/ipod input and then keep things standard for a good couple of months and then review what I feel needs changing/what needs doing. Previously have always owned Vauxhalls so my first car from a different Marque, exciting but also slightly nerve wracking!
