    I'll put some better pics up after I have had a chance to detail it to my standard.

    I was sad to see the CR-V go, but that all went away when I had my foot down in this thing - it was a great feeling, thats for sure! Still very tempted to go back to a CR-V, but want to try out that new 1.6 I-DTEC engine with 160bhp next year to see if it really is better than the 2.2 unit.

    But for now, this Accord is staying permanently, regardless of what comes next. Fantastic example - few paint defects to correct, but nothing serious. Equipped with illuminate door sills - will add my LED's in tomorrow :Happy:

    I must say, I am slowly leaning towards really liking the gen 8 shape.

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    Apart from detailing, which I might tackle later today, the car is great. And its not black, so should be easier to correct any paint defects.

    So far its been a good "bond" between car and I.

    Needs detailing again, covered in grime-galore. Shows up just as bad on this grey as it did on the black one to be honest! Just need to invest in some winter tyres I think....

    ^^My Winter wheels and tyres went on yesterday. At least it will save the Sigmas from the Winter salt onslaught...

    You should ask HH whether they have any deals on 18" Accord wheels, what with the discontinuation and everything.
