17"?? Wont it look small on the Accord? IMO 18" is needed for a car this size.

Congrats on the new car. You're living upto your name

Let the mods become.
Nemisis V2

OZs would look amazing
If we could have details on the PCD etc, a more refined option can be presented on the platter for you :P

The PCD is 114.3, 5 Bolt Pattern. Konig rims are available at some places in Delhi. You can also try MOMO Rims.

B.K Tire had some Konig designs and Rims with him, And he can get a specific design for you on order. What color is your car AM??

No issues AM.

The best part about a white car is that any color rims would look great. Do you have anything specific in mind ? Like 5 Spoke or with lip or so ?

Check out the Borbet range at petes.in

@ karan - i like hotswap & twilite ( gold) . Also considering lenso normandi ( if i'm able to get my hands on it in del ) ... i could go for golden rims but this time i want to keep it subtle so would prefer normal silver finish with some black in it .

Lenso Dealer, Just Wheels on Arya Samaj Road, Karol Bagh.Bang Opposite Bikanerwala. I am sure AM knows the location, Since i remember he got his brother's Civic fitted with 17" lensos from the same place.

@AM: Konig should be available at BK Tire, or even at GYRO for that matter, you can get MOMO at GYRO as well. Try both the places for designs.

Borbett is priced expensive, so if we dont mind shelling out money, even thats a good option. Get something like these. Multi Spoke would look better than 5 or 6.

that accord looks best without the skirting! and possibly without that sticker on the windscreen.
good to see that projectors are available so soon.

They have been in the market for quite a while.
Remember seeing the lights on one quite a long back (obviously after the car came)
The mugen kit is also out and is available with Performance Zone.

I had a look at the projectors and personally i think they are not good at all .... they got fairy lamps ( audi style) and angel eyes(bmw) i dont understand why both these styles have been integrated into this one light .... didn't like it .
Do like the multispoke options that mana showed would look at the multispoke option as well .
I did contact the lenso guy asked him if he could get me normandi but he said that its not available but got a hint that someone might be able to get it so trying that out tooo . He did send me a mail which had the 18'' options for the accord didnt like em as well ... i know very choosy me.
