I originally owned a 5 door Civic (some may have seen or heard of it, mainly over on Epcivic.com as it was one of the few modified ones in the UK) but it was time for a move to something more grown up. And more powerful. So I started hunting for an alternative and I have always loved this generation Accord. You also don't see too many of them on the roads which aren't bog standard, or being used as taxis
In July I found this 2006 Type-S model, in Alabaster silver with about 85k miles on the clock. It had the K24 engine and some basic mods already. I later discovered that it was previously owned by another Accord enthusiast so was very well looked after.
I love it. It handles like a dream whether sprinting around a track or cruising on the motorway, is very eager to be driven hard and is in excellent condition. It is fitted with the premium sound and sat nav package giving the feel of luxury but I do enjoy some of the track feel and look too. I appreciate it may not be to everyone's taste but I like a balance of visual and performance modifications. The aggressive look does it for me and I do like the culture of modifying cars. Some will hate the stickers, yellow fogs etc and that is fine. It is still a work in progress and things will change but for now, I'm enjoying it and extremely happy
Worth updating for 2019 - the engine knock mentioned in this thread is all sorted, thanks to an ECU reflash from littlebo. I can confirm that the previous XO Power reflash was causing no end of problems and this car now drives like a dream.
