I checked and they didn't seem to have one for the coupe only the sedan and they look little different so I wasn't sure if they were the same

Anybody have any idea what to do?
Yea most likely its gotten into the clear coat a bit. Clay bar the area, it should most definitely take away that stain. Then wax and buff, and admire the shine

Will spacers make a noticeable difference in handling?

They're supposed to widen the track of your car but in every day driving I don't think it will make a huge difference.

Thanks Doctor_X. The reason I ask is because I do most of my driving on winding roads and im keeping my stock rims for winter. I know the wheels will look a little better pushed out but I prefer function over form and am not willing to spend the $270 for basically looks. In anyone's opinion is it worth it?

Whether it is worth it would be subjective. Do I think it's worth it? You might as well use that $270 towards better tires if you want better performance. If you want the wheels more flush then get them.

I just bought a set of Conti Extreme Contact DWS for my stock rims for my winter setup. And Im saving up for a set mb weapons 9 +38 and 255 wide tires. That will be my summer setup. So Im not worried about the tires right now.
So I guess it would be more worth it to upgrade the sways first then before the spacers?

The sway will make a much bigger difference.

Also those tires are great tires. I recommend them to all my customers looking for all seasons.

^Awesome!!! My buddy bought a set of the Conti DW's for his 350z and he really liked them, that coupled with tirerack's review of them pretty much made up my mind. Im getting them installed tomorrow....cant wait! I'll probably also be using the DW's for my summer setup. Thanks alot for your help Doctor_X.

One last question though. Right now im looking to get the TL progress 24mm rear sway coupled with the TL-s front sway bar. I've heard the 24mm might be too much for the I4...any input?

Could anybody tell what parts I need to order off of these 2 links to get OEM top hats? I have Eibach sportline springs, and Tokico HP Blue shocks, and wanted to assemble them together, instead of having to take the top hats off of my factory shocks/springs.

i have a question. if an actuator on any door besides the driver door stops working, does that cause all the actuator not to work? or is it if the driver side actuator stops working, all the actuator stops working? thanks

Alright so this scenario has been bugging me for a bit. Figured might as well ask. Is there a way to use/bolt on a EK rear subframe brace? (ASR as an example) i know the LCA's won't fit due to the different suspension geometry, but from the looks of it, the rear subframe brace looks equal in length and possibly have simliar/same bolt holes? i might try to test fit or attempt it with my friend's. but just seeing if anyone has tried it or ya know, asked.

You may be going into uncharted territory. IE: I don't believe anyone has ever tried bolting a subframe brace from an EK/EG to an Accord. There are other braces like a tie bar that they do make and I'm sure you could find a machine shop to make something for you if you really wanted to. You would just have to have the dimensions at hand so they could machine it to spec.

Yeah, i've seen the carbon fiber ( or fake fiber) on ebay for like 10 bucks. lol but just seeing as how the ek/eg subframe brace is bigger, looked better. but i mean, figured i'd ask and put my curiosity out there. it would be nice though.

for the front, from the link you'll need everything except for # 1,4 & 16.

for the rear you need everything except for # 5,7,8,17,18.

basically the screws for the body, shocks and springs you don't need to buy.

i'm not sure about the driver side but everything else should work even if one is broke.

go on yakima web site and go to select vehicle. there you can build your own rack for your ride and it'll describe to you w/c parts exactly you need. sample link below i used my car.

Yakima › Shop › Rack Systems
