Thumbs up Modified Accord : Pics

Hi,
Seen this beauty at a resort in Mahabaleshwar.
It's a 3.0L V6 Accord with a VIP regn.
I especially liked the alloys. Also the car had twin exhaust pipes with possibly some modifications to engine as well (didnt sound like "normal" Accord).
All the mods looked as if they are factory fitted. Even the alloys are of Honda. Is there any "sports" version available for Accord?

Sorry for the bad photo quality. It was really dark.

You can get any aftermarket alloys and stick the 'H' logo on them to make them look original. No one will ever know its a fake.

Accord V6 is sports enough..

i thought the mugen tuned accord had painted brake calipers....
i doubt this is the one.....
the alloys do look like the honda logo has been pasted as an afterthought!
this is a bodykit......i have seen something like this in bombay on a silver accord

None that I am aware of... it falls under the category of family sedan (at least here in US)

As pointed out by Karthik the modifications definately look aftermarket

ok...thats good....lucky guy....nice bolt on kit but i think the accord v6 looks sporty in its stock form and kits dont contribute in a big way to enhancing its street presence......yes they do bring down the price of the car when it has to be sold
