    Hi guys,

    I wanted to introduce myself; I'm Krish and recently bought a CL7 K20 as my workhorse.

    I do 550 miles per week and this Accord came up at a good price with LPG conversion done.

    Car had 11800 miles when I bought her and had the conversion done at 81000 miles.

    Just before I bough her the following was done:
    Front Lower Wishbone Bushes
    Oil Service using genuine parts - Whenever I buy a new car I service her straight away using genuine filters and quality oil. So nice to see the genuine filter already on there when I came to service the car.
    Clutch Kit

    Since I got her (7 months ago) I have done the following:

    Full service using genuine Honda parts from Cox
    New Discs and Pads all round with all sliders re-greased.
    Front upper wishbone bushes
    LPG Service and map calibration
    Auxiliary Belt
    HID kit - I never put these kits on but the light visibility was so poor and my route to work and back is normally on un-lit b-roads.
    Another Oil Service - Done 10k already!!!!!

    Things to fit:
    Rocker Cover Gasket
    Ingalls rear camber/toe kit - EXPENSIVE!!

    What can I say about the car/Honda.......

    Great drive, very comfortable and with the LPG very economical. Good reliability (so far) and I really can't fault the car for what I need it for.

    Only problem I have with the car (possibly all Hondas) with the lack of low down torque :Frown: I want as much usable power as possible and the Accord is not a car I want to sit about 6000rpm all the time.

    My other car is an MR2 Turbo so I'm not chasing power or want to mod the engine for more torque but a little more torque low down would do wonders for this car - K24???

    Pics to follow at some point. Seems like a nice bunch of people on the forum.
