Yeah, I can't really stand the Acura's where it looks like there is a giant silver/chrome beak on the front and a pointy car following it. It looks like they modeled the designs off StarFox 64 or something. That being said, that new one looks better...

It's going to be subzero here soon, but I have only gotten the rear dampers on my car last week. Lol.

Anyway, I didn't get as much seat time with the Accord 2.4L Direct Injection as I liked. I have the V6 Accord Coupe this week, and I like it alot more! I believe that the front fascia is also different. The front head lights appear to be slimmer than the ones from the sedan, even though they have the same functional design.

I love the cold weather. Plus, it's GREAT for turbo cars. I love the little extra zip you get in a turbo car in the cold weather.

You are right, but my co-workers all think that I'm crazy to install my coilovers in my driveway. They quote bloody fingers from getting cuts in the cold!

Review updated! :wink:

Sorry it took so long. I ran into some issues with my suspension install...some rusty bolts snapped when I was trying to remove them, so it is still on jack stands after two weeks!

I'm confused...is this about the 2013 model in the subject line?

Haha. Yes, I meant that it took me so long to actually write the review after I started this thread. Before yesterday, that first post was just a placeholder with a picture because I've been trying to install my suspension on my own car...and had some roadblocks.

Nice car. I'm glad Honda brought back the 6 speed manual in upper trim levels.

I am going to be driving the Accord 2.4L Direct Injection with the 6MT this week, it`ll be a good reference for comparison to the CVT model!
