Actually there are more than 2 KL-01 regd Rs's in cochin. All of them are yellow. One of them is best avoided.

So have you decided yet?

Make a quick decision.you need a car to drive by your heart.there's nothing you need to look at beside the RS.it has the looks,the respect(mind you octy has respect here in india),performance,comfort for the driver.Its simply the best drivers car yet.So go ahead.

by the way test drive both the cars and you'll know.and TD it in some curvy roads etc.the handling of the european car is incomparable.

Team BHP is not the best place to ask advice with respect to RS vs Accord

Personally I would go for the "stock" Accord. I really have my doubts on the level of wear and tear on a 220bhp remaped Octavia vRS. If you get into any problems in future with the vRS its going to be heavy on your pocket

RS vs Accord V6.i Agree its a V6,a honda and all that.But all i have to say is that.petes made a 500 BHP RS.So the decision is on you dude.taking the RS means ready upgrades available unlike the V6.

For mods and build, I recommend RS.
For reliability and a trustworthy ride, I recommend v6

My two pennies

RS for handling, manual box and easy maneuverability
RS for sunroof,xenons,sport image (if you like)

Accord for Size, image (subjective)
Accord for V6(in the mind!)and cheap and good service.

RS against thieving rip off spares and service.
Accord against boat like handling and auto box.

I guess that Karthik would have decided by now – if so please update.
It looks like RS all the way, but my personal choice would the V6.
