The 3rd pic is of an accord. And since the other 2 pics were taken at night i dont really know whether it looks good or not.

Hey guys,
Honda offered customers their own custom colours if i am right.
Everything from black to white could be asked for.
The accord looks a bit goldenish.

I've seen both and I really like the Orange Accord, its different, paint quality is great and the 17" chrom alloys are awesome and make the car look much better!

Purple city's belong to Hotel Orchid. And I still don't remember Honda giving the option of onrage colour from factory when we bought it. They must've done it on the customers request for extra money.

custom colours from honda and skoda cost exactly a lak more than the car price. if some people remember there is exactly one very dark purple vtec i have seen its rare and very hot. honda claims they take a white car strip it down and then paint it. most of them dont bother with the stripping part so it scares them away

There is not one but three Honda Accords in town.Two of them are the New Accords.One can spot the newgen Accord at Cuffe's during the day.
It looks decent.As far as the Ks Honda is concerned,its a beast in all regards.One of the best Honda City's one can EVER come across.

Lol,

Im not sure if you are making fun of my colour skills or you know that i know.

There was a "mystic" purple honda city 1.5 with a sweet bodykit. By msystic i mean the paint that looks different from every angle due to the light. aka "chameleon paint". Theres a technical term for that paint that i forget....

Anyway...about that city....it got totalled. (Got replaced by a 5series, and later on with a purplish city vtec (i think it was just flat purple.)

cya
