I had an Accord type S for 6 years, it was black with aftermarket wheels black rear tints and boot spoiler. Have to say it was a great car but i respected it rather than loved it, changed it for a Civic type R which i do love.

But i have to say yours looks absolutely fantastic, and i didnt know you could mod it that much. As some one has said rear camber a bit dramatic and why no boot spoiler.

Certainly worth all the effort and great colour to.

Hey Anojan, good to see you over here mate

Looking sweet, I'm loving the new rims and clean look. Does make me miss my Accord a little bit, but I do love the Civic (apart from the NHB paint showing up every little scratch!).

A pic of my old gal, for nostalgia's sake:

Sweet car, the Accord is one of my favorite Honda's around. Classy, yet highly tunable. Now sell me your bottom engine block please

I'm glad I made the switch, but they are completely different cars. I can't fault the Accord really, was just bigger than what I needed. I actually find I've got more space in the Civic too, oddly enough.

It was a lovely looking car, and drove like a dream, but my Civic is faster (I had the 2.0l petrol), and handles better. Also the Civic interior is amazing in comparison, feels much more modern. Sitting in other cars now seems boring compared to the Civic cockpit, lol.

I had 6 years in An Accord and now have a CTR.
There are very few cars that will give you the buzz that a CTR gives when Vtecing it to 8000rpm, its not just about power because i bet your mapped Accords pulls hard as did my Accord type s (2.4 190 bhp) its just the whole car is about performance and you never tire of hitting the red line.

BUT the Accord is a true Honda, i had 99% reliability out of the 4 Accords ive owned, the CTR is as bad as my wifes Peugeot and has had 3 separate dealer visits this year. But now its sorted i wouldnt go back to the Accord.
