Default New beginning .... My 2009 Honda Accord V6

hey guys as you know had got the new accord v6 a few days ago . well the cars great fun to drive , the feels different from the previous v6 as this ones is feels more planted and kind of has a german feel to it though being a jap. well had got it and was on the net so found the mugen inspire and thus got the mugen inspire skirting kit for my car (replica ) didn't cost too much was for Rs.15K also the window visors (mugen style) clicked some pics with the phone will click some better pics tomorrow btw forgot to add that the only down point well plus point for the back seat people is the soft suspension ... its a lil too soft for me as i dont need to sit on the back seat so any suggestions that i can improve the handling but not compromise the comfort too much because used by me and my dad on sundays for outings & yes can't find no good wheels in a limited budget cant go 1L for rims.

Looks good, please post some day light pics tomorrow. What color(black or ...?) wheels have you considered?

Do you have any ideas about painting the chrome garnish of the front grill to black? i guess it ll look good.

how about Mag Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Aluminum Alloy Wheels,Car Chrome Wheels,Supplier or Mag Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Aluminum Alloy Wheels,Car Chrome Wheels,Supplier or Mag Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Aluminum Alloy Wheels,Car Chrome Wheels,Supplier

Congrats on the buy dude. The kit looks good (in the pic), please post some high-res pics of the side profile.

Suspension and handling is the Accord's weak point (from a driver's point of view).

Does it feel noticeably faster compared to the previous generation Accord V6?

The cars still not done the first 1000 Kms so keeping the revs low ( <4K) but done around 750 kms now as soon as i finish 1000 would know if it is faster or not but from the overall feel i guess it would be faster because even now it doesn't feel underpowered . About the rims i could import them from anywhere if its not madly expensive . Dont want to get black rims as already had them before on the previous car.

@ bbs - i kinda like the chrome look with the white car , if i had a black one then wouldve got the grill in black .

cheers

Congrats. The debate here was thats, its costly. Lets see what you got to say on the long run; cost VS V6.

You wanted this or was there any other contenders?

Congrats on the new ride AM. White seems to be a very popular and one of the best colors for the new Accord. Would suggest you to go for a contrasting color for the wheels. Also go for a decent and unique design, something thats not very common.

Also I would suggest you to replace the original tail lights with smoked ones. The original ones with all that chrome looks very cheap.

congrats dude!
How does it compare to you m3?

IMO, go for these rims (or similar style) with some nice low profile tyres:

Nooo.... On a car like this smoked lights would look tacky!

I like the rims in the third pic. Hunting for some nice 18'' 5 spoke rims .... btw K&n typhoon kit has been ordered should be here in 2 weeks time . k&n promised a 10hp increase with the typhoon kit heres the link K&N Air Intake Horsepower Gain .
@ navpreet - dude i think the STUDIED design looks somewhat like the 2.4 accord stock rims so not a big fan of it but thanks for the advice .
