Ok im slightly confused here and i dont know if anyone else noticed it. Who came up with the brilliantl idea of putting a 5 hole rim on a car which has just 4 bolts??!! I really doubt the car's hubs were changed to 5 nuts because theyre integrated with the brake rotos and there are no direct swaps available.

Thats one awful jugaad which id never risk on any car...

Infact Driven mentioned the same to me a day ago. That's a jugaad that's apparently been executed at Khan Market

Prateek.... I seriously recommend you go to a serious tuner to get your money's worth. That is a very capable platform you have there and you could do wonders with the car if its given to the right hands.

Cheers

PS. I have seen the small lip spoiler for your car at Driven (he might have got it for himself). It was of good quality unlike some other stuff floating in the market.

hi prateek, dont know how much u woulda spend on this,but when you compare your accord with autopsyches work's,looks like they have not done justice to your accord,[atleast in the looks department].....i think autopsyche woulda done a much better job.

autopsyche might have done better job in exteriors but its more than enough for me.i have seen autopsyches barracuda which is bought by sameer right now.nos kit in barracuda was installed pretty badly in it.i have also taken some pics of hids which were installed by autopsyche pretty baadlyi ll post pics latter.

no offense.

although I agree with you, lets not compare the quality of the work - prateek may have had his own reasons to choose one tuner over another.

ofcourse, apart from that i guess we are free to discuss the work done on this car

@ prateek - can you please post
(a) pictures of the engine bay post NOS injection
(b) some timings also if possible coz i overheard someone saying they could beat your modded accord in a stock version so just wanted to clarify to them

Regards

Looks very plain to me. Could be due to the lack of logos.
