Default Need help modifying my 04 accord

hey guys
I am a relatively new bhpian but am on it every day reading new posts and tryin to understand more about cars but now i need all the help and suggestions i can get.
I have a 04 accord 2.4 AT and already have got small modifications done like have got xenon headlamps, got a sony amplifier and a JBL suboofer but stock speakers and head unit.Also got a K&N CAI installed from autopsyche.Now i was planning on getting some more work done on my car.
The things i had in mind were.
1)A free flow exhaust (magnaflow preferably).
2)An accord mugen boykit.
3)A set of rims and tyres was considerin upgrading to 17 inches but want a black rim wit a chrome lip.
4)Getting front black projector lights, and getting the taillights smoked.
5)Was also wondering weather i could get the wood finish inside the car changed to carbon fiber or changed to have the carbon fiber look.
6)Also thought of getting a piggy bank put to increase hp but dont no if you get one for the accord.
Another question for the audio gurus is
If i get new speakers on the existing HU will it be worth it or should i change the HU too?I would prefer not to play around with the electricals of the car
And please also suggest some good speakers for the car.
Thank you

The Accord (Old Gen) is one of the best cars to modify. You could get in touch with Autopsyche for Mugen Body Kit. Also try out Angel Eyes!

This Accord is definitely my favourite car to MOD, Just waiting for My DAD to give me the possession of his Accord, Its the same as your Black. Anyways getting back

1. Get a Magnaflow Endcan or a Remus Endcan coupled with a Straight Pipe, I heard accordmasters accord one day while he was revving past me , And it sounded very good.

2. Accord Mugen Kit should be available At GYRO or at Autopsyche, Contact them.

3.17" Rims suit the accord perfectly, Try Visiting The newly opened Lenso Showroom/outlet in Karol Bagh, I am sure you will find your rims their.

4.Projector Headlights readily available in Delhi, should cost around 13k, Tail lights smoke, Arush is your MAN.

5.Very easy, Buy a CF Look a like sticker and apply it on the DASH, search around Team bhp you will find pics.

6.PiggyBank, Hmmm I think you would be able to find one for the K24

Changing the speaker would definitely help to improve the sound, You have a AMP connected right, How?? does the stock HU have pre-outs??

abhinav.gupta88-Thank you for the links to accordmasters nemesis but i have already seen that earlier and accordmasters is a good friend of mine so, have seen his car plenty of times and he is the one who has inspired me.

rohan on the inside to replace the wooden you would have to go with a cf sticker layout on top of it. However you could scrpae that off and get it converted to a brushed aluminum paint finish. That would be a more feasible and better finish option.

The stock HU is very crappy on the Accord, you have heard the nemesis audio right, that car also plays from the stock HU if u play it through the AUX. Try listening to it and it will be a world of a difference. I would definitely suggest to add a seperate HU, amp and new speakers to better handle the power.

Getting a piggy-bank wont increase HP, but it might increase your budget a bit.

Sorry about your rims, surely feels bad when new wheels get damaged.

Oh, and I'm closely watching this thread. I have a about 2 months to decide whether I should keep our 04 Auto Accord or buy a 1.8TPi. My Accord is in the same grey color. I was contemplating a Mugen Kit like in the pictures, and Black Alloys with chrome lip like Manan has on his Civic.

Seems you're doing the same .. eagerly awaiting pictures

Yayyy .. Mugen's are IN ..
