    Hello all,

    Picked up my new Accord, a silver 2.2 I-DTEC EX Automatic last weekend, the first time I have owned a Honda. Was looking to replace a not very reliable VW, and stumbled across the Accord almost by accident, having looked at Mercedes C-Class, Audi A5 Sportback, Jaguar XF etc etc. Very glad I did based on initial impressions - fantastic build quality and great value in terms of the standard equipment, as well as a strong reputation for reliability, which is now very important to me! Also a bit different, which really appeals.

    I did drive a 7th generation Accord 2.4 a few years ago, new on an "03" plate - a former colleague had one as a company car and I used to drive it quite a bit in and out of London. I remember it being great fun, very quick, and in dark grey with matching wheels it looked great. Having had mine now for a week and done 300 miles, I have only seen one other 8th generation, but have seen quite a few 7th. Maybe it's just me, but I actually think the 7th generation looks better than the 8th, to me a simpler and more cohesive design especially at the back...

    Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself - am looking forward to getting involved!
