Hello all, As the title says, I'm the proud owner of a new 8th Generation Accord, my 4th Accord in total. Let's get this bit over with..... it's I-DTEC!!!!!!!! Sorry I know some of the i-VTEC hard-core will probably disown me , I still love i-VTEC myself and I reckon I'll be back to it one day - I can't believe it myself in some ways that I've defected to Satan fuel! I wanted 2.4 but they could not source me one, even on a factory order as I didn't mind waiting for 2.4 I test drove I-DTEC and I was impressed with it - always been anti diesel but my only real diesel experiences were with VAG [email protected] so that's what put me off I think. I was impressed with the I-DTEC quietness and refinement for a diesel anyway and the way it pulls from low down. VAG diesels in my experience need thrashing round town to stop them stalling so drink more fuel (and engine oil in my experience) than any petrol ever would. Anyway they could source me 2.0 petrol in Graphite lustre or Crystal black - nice looking cars but too near the colour I've already got. I like a different colour on a new car so it looks like a new car. They could also get me I-DTEC EX in Carnelion Red, Polished Metal or Orchid White pearl . I settled on Orchid White Pearl - wish they'd just call it Honda Racing White. They gave me top valuation for my trade in and a cracking deal on I-DTEC as I'm such a good repeat Customer. Hopefully, I'll get it next Friday... These were all cars in the UK in Honda group stock so don't let any dealer tell you there are no Accords available - just limited choice that's all. Other colours are on factory order for mid January not all colours but most of the popular ones anyway. Better still there was never any attempt from the Swindon Wagon Gestapo to convert me to Swindon cars so my two fingers were redundant.
