That was just my estimate and it was an open road and I drove like a saint.

Course for the past 2 days its been used in the city and the average is back down to about 5.5. Lol.

Underlined part should be, cut down on braking. Smooth acceleration and deceleration with delicate inputs to throttle and brake will give you best mileage. Cut the throttle as much as possible also.

I think I phrased that wrong. Completely agree with you. What I meant was that supposed I see a signal in the distance turns yello or red normally I would still accelerate towards it and then brake a little harded. But now when I see a signal change I just cruise towards it braking lightly.

Hey guys check out these wheels. I'm hooked onto the 2nd set. theyre both enkei. i think the 2nd set will go well with the accord and in the 2nd one the spokes go all the way till the end of the rim and there is no lip like the first one, so the rims will look bigger.

akshay the dark grey lenso in post#111 would suit your black accord the best IMO.

like vid said these wheels look too similar to your current rims.

OT you are pretty good at PS, good work

Akshay,

The 2nd set looks really very nice! But the problem is that it looks too similar to the OE wheels IMO. Too similar! And because that's the case, I suggest you go in for the 1st set. They look very nice and pretty classy!

How much are they? What brand?

EDIT: Sorry I hadn't noticed the Enkei badge!

I know the pal guys very very well. Speak to kenny (ranveer) and tell him i sent you (say the doc with the red honda). He'll give you a very good rate.

i know it looks similar but thats not what matters to me. as long as the end result looks slick i am happy. anyway ill do a photoshop of the other enkei and the lenso sc05 and put it up here.

Akshay,

IMHO should go for first one. first one looks more elegant! Too many spokes in the second one!

Could you kindly tell me how you fit those alloys in photo shop? i posted in some other therads also, but no luck. Is it simple cut and paste job or requires any additional plugins etc?

Thanks in advance for the help!
