Default Honda Accord Coupe V6 EX-L 2008

Honestly, I haven't slept in 48 hours. I'm hooked! My first visit to Pacific Honda did not result in me getting to TD a V6 coupe/sedan. The sales guy, Mo, was apologetic and promised to remedy the situation the next day.

I was 100% sure that I'll buy a black coupe V6 t-o-t-l. But this was not to be, niether was my 2nd, 3rd or 4th choice available before another 12-15 days. I said no, yes, no, no, no, yes, no, no , NONONONO and then yes to the Belize blue sample you see here.

I'll just post some pics tonite and hopefully recover from insanity to give you guys a initial and short-mid-long term ownership reviews in due time. I might not be online for quite a while because I'll mostly be in my car.

The frontal view of this vehicle looks so much better than the accord being sold in India.. I like the curves from the bonnet to the wheel arches..Could'nt find a frontal view on the website to compare it exactly, so could any of the current owners take a shot for us to view the difference? Thanks..

Good pics. Even the alloys look better than the Indian Accord.

Great looking car! I see the "P R N D..." on the console. Why didn't you choose the close-ratio 6 speed manual?!!

The accord being sold here is essentially the sedan version of the same sans the projectors, steering mounted controls, cruise control and a 2.4L I4 instead of the 3.6 V6. The interiors and exteriors are exactly the same otherwise.

We get a bonus over the auto boxes in the US... we get steering mounted paddle shifters.

That is one hell of a ride you got there

Lovely pictures and I really like the colour !

We would not be surprised if you vanish from the forum for a couple of days - as long as you come back with more pics, ofcourse

Drive safe !

A nice car, nice colour, great images!

That's a lot of 'sans'.

Seems only the body is same. Does our accord come with in dash GPS ?

Nope doesn't... but neither does any other car in India. I had a td of the indian accord on saturday. Not very impressed with the suspension.

Didn't find the rear to be as sporty looking as the front and the hood looks too long for the chassis. But a better looking car than the other Accord coupe.

congrats bro!
My friend just picked up a 2008 Accord Coupe EX-L as well, but his is the 2.4 in Black and has the optional wing spoiler.
Waiting to go back and check her out.
