They look brilliant dude.

Anyways if you are not getting red logos get it painted blue as red is too common nowdays.

Just got the car back, the colour is matched perfectly, but a few bits need some buffing and polishing. I plan on taking care of that ASAP. And then expect a photoshoot of this car. The blue calipers look hot btw

The polishing was done today of the little dull bits that needed some sanding, and then polishing. The car is actually looking as good as new now with 0 dents and scratches. The calipers have been painted blue and are a nice little eye catching detail. Also debaged the rear, I think it looks clean now. Shall take some good pictures tomorrow and upload.

Here are a few pics, they were taken in a rush so theyre blurry. Apologies
The blue calipers aren't visible, but I think the debadging looks quite neat. The car is almost at 22k kms btw, talk about hardly used.

Hi Akshay,

Congrats on your vRS!
I am just loving the V6, done some 3,500 kms in 2 months.
I have a K&N Apollo filter (Cold Air Intake) at home, which was running in my previous car (City),

Details: RC 5052AL (K&N Apollo Universal Closed Air Intake Systems)

I would require guidance from you experts weather i can fit the filter in my Accord V6 or its too small for a 3 liter car. which will help me decide to install or to buy a new one.

Thanks,
Chetan

It will probably work fine. Fit it on, and if by chance you do face issues then you can buy a bigger one, but I think it will be fine.

hi akshay,
am planning to upgrade alloys on my 2006 accord 2.4 manual. Have been running the stock alloys so far. am planning on 17 inchers. what offset is recomended so as not to foul with the steering, suspension and the arches? my current ones are 15", so will 17" be a huge jump for the suspension to deal with. kindly opine.

I don't remember the offset but get a reputed brand you should be fine. Be prepared for you ride to stiffen up a lot after 15s and it will take a toll on your shocks. If you are keeping the car for a while then get a suspension upgrade too.

The Accord is finally going in for the front brake pad change tomorrow. Its been overdue for a while, and I had ordered another set of Hawk pads from the US. The present set wore out extremely quickly, but then again its a compromise for the brilliant stopping power over stock.
