That's because they're being produced in India these days.

Absolutely fantastic wheels man! They look superb and suit the Accord very well IMO! Great, great choice! I was afraid that 17" might look slightly on the smaller side but I was wrong! They look perfect! Congratulations, dude!

About the intake, I suggest a cold-air intake is better than a ram-air. Ram air might be more effective but it isn't necessary. A cold-air intake would do just fine!

thank you. i too was worried that 50 profile might seem a bit too much, but it looks just fine. the car has managed to get a few stares.


about the filter, in the k&n cold air intake the filter is right behind the bumper, so i am worried that in the rains water might splash onto it or something. in a short ram intake the filter is within the engine bay.

Nope. Enkei has been OE on Hondas and Toyotas for years now. There is a reason those ordinary looking alloys of the OHC VTEC are hot property - they are exceptionally light Enkeis.

AFAIK it's the other way around! I'm sure the induction kit (Typhoon + K&N) sit flush underneath the hood. The air box would be replaced by a large conical and the stock piping would be replaced by the cold-air induction kit. The ram-intake would be mounted in front of the bumper/grille to force the air in. That's unnecessary unless you're interested in forced induction or something!

i didnt know that those were made here. i thought they were imported from japan which also explained the exceptionally high price tag.

i saw the installation pics of the k&n typhoon for the accord and its not like the one for the civic. in this the filter is just behind the bumper in front of the wheel well.

Are you sure? Because I think that's how it's supposed to be! And that's not too different from the Civic. It just looks precariously placed. I know a guy who has a K&N and a cold-air intake kit on his Accord and it's working absolutely perfectly! Do get others' opinions as well as some sound mechanical advice from reliable sources before proceeding further!

The ones on the OHC are imported from Japan. But the ones that come on the Civic and Accord are Made In India. And are still exceptionally light.

And I forgot - bloody awesome wheels.
