  1. Seriously considering one of these as a daily, what are they like? Have you tried the Civic with the same lump?

      Hello @Matt at H-Tune, I love it. Drives amazing, comfortable seating, I remapped mine so runs better. I get 60mpg-ish if I drive like captain slow (James May) but my mpg is roughly 45 which I'm still happy with and I know my driving style lol. It's got nice torque which is what I need on Birmingham streets to pull away quick. I have drove the N22 Civic many times, the Civic seems more responsive but i feel the Accord holds the road better. I also own a N22 FR-V. Feel free to PM me if you like

      The Civic seems more responsive compared to a non remapped Accord but after the remap, Accord drives amazing. I didn't delete EGR etc, don't want to play with emissions.

      I got ambushed by a gritter last year and it's pitted all along the front spoiler around the fog light.

      Its really been maintained by the previous owner. Just need to give it a good polish and clean the yellowing headlight myself and then fix the boot problem

      It runs amazing, i driven new cars but this feels soo much better. Sometimes I think people clock the millage up on these cars because a high mileage car driving nice without any knocks or bangs

      It looks good in the pictures but someone has scratched and dented the passenger side wing before I went to buy. Lights are also yellow
