Ross Brawn Honda Accord?

Just ditched my type-r and bought a 58 plate Honda Accord 2.2 IDTEC EX GT.

The previous owner on the Accords registration document is down as Ross Brawn and the adress is "care of Honda UK"

Would he of had specific use of this car or would it have been a pool car for the f1 team.

Get the car week starting the first June, so much more relaxing than the type-r, cant wait. Must be getting too old.

if its down as his name on it, chances are, it was his car. usually, pool cars are denoted as just Honda Uk.

Don't think he thought it was worth bothering, he probably just traded it in for a Merc.

A dealer not quite telling the truth? Never.

Have you ditched your tangerine type-s for an accord too

Your so right about the comfort factor, its a joy compared to the type-r

(althought you shouldnt really compare them)

Should also get around 15-20 miles more per gallon.

i saw a black accord just before sandend when i was out for my test drive on saturday morning, wasnt you was it, i would have had dealer plates on.

I quite fancy the grille upgrade, was it on the car already or did you get it fitted?

The accord in black looks mean as hell.
