Its great to see that not only does the system sound so insanely good but what is even better is that such a near and good job took only about 3 hours!!!
I know most of the other dealers would've started by quoting 3 hours but ended up taking much more time.
Good job
Thanks alot bro. Well its not the full install that took 3 hours. Only installing the processor which was quite a straightforward job and tuning it which again was reasonably easy. Hope I didnt misunderstand you. Of course it was installed neatly just like the rest of the system.

Quick thought guys, I have streetglow LEDs lying around so I thought id use them as DRLs. Let me know what you think. Im more inclined towards the first option.

Wow, how could i miss this thread through all these years ?! Accord V6 is a brilliant car, been and driven in one a lot of times. I used to drool over everytime i saw that V6 Badge behind an Accord. Those Interior's are super comfy ! The alloy's look sick too ! Kudos to you akshay for maintaining her so well. I went through all the 29 Pages in one go, and I must say it was a pleasure going through your thread ! Hope to see you get a much needed Suspension/Brakes Upgrade soon,

Till then Drive Safe, Keep Revving and wishing you a lot more safe and happy miles ahead, Cheers !

i feel the 2nd option looks much better, seems much more cohesive and complete.
the 1st option though not bad does not seem to blend in too well and seems much more apparent aftermarket add on.
i don't know how to get my point across, but i feel that DRLs look better at the corners which complement the accords wide low slung nose.
hope you get the drift.

Conservatism here ... I wouldn't add the LEDs to your great-looking car at all. If I did, however, it would be as per your second photo, where they will not look like an afterthought.

I just read superboy's post properly: he has put it very well:

If by any chance you had a few more LEDs lying around you could go in for a different pattern of LEDs (square, angled) in the fogs if possible.(Something like the E class?)

Couple of things I would recommend.

Get projector headlights with HIDs.
Change over to a more stylish license plate font

Thanks for that. Still figuring what to do, may scrap the idea totally.

Yes he did put it well. But what ill do is connect them to the battery let them light up and then place them and see how they look.

I know what your talking about. I dont have those, though I wouldnt mind getting those as they would be ideal. All I have now is an LED strip.

I have HIDs but no projectors as of now. They are surprisingly very focused in the stock reflectors, I should take pics. And the taiwanese projector headlights which we get have terrible quality projectors. Also this is an old pic I PS'sed. Have a look at the page before this, the plates have been changed.

Thanks.

Id say scrap the LEDs alltogether. Have seen these on so many posers in places you cant imagine Your V6 looks perfect just the way it is. On another note, i saw a white V6 today (same model as yours) with black or gunmetal rims & HIDs. Looked pretty good. In fact, your black car & that white car would make a good Angel & Devil

The shocks were totally $514 and the pads were another $165. With 2 day shipping it came to $800. Shipping was to me while I was in the U.S.

Will hopefully get all of these installed in the next day or two and update here.
