Spark Plug Wire Help

Is there any way to make my spark plug wires prettier? The 98-99 models had a much nicer set of wires, rather than the taped up all in one, then split into three, wires I'm stuck with on my '00. Here's a picture to illustrate what I mean:



If you check out Aznfunkyflips featured ride, you can see that even he has the funky kind... just that he kept the black "guide" thing on his. I don't want the black guide thing on mine though.

Not really your kind of stuck with what ya got unless you get some colored zip tubing but the looks like crap most of the time too. I know they make colored electrical tape if you want to go that route. But i think you better off just leaving it alone. Atleast us 98-99 owners can get diff color wires.

What happened to your engine covers? They actually make the engine bay look A LOT better, and you wouldn't notice the plug wires that much.

I took the covers off because they're dead weight and trap heat in, not much dead weight, but dead weight nonetheless. I like the "raw" look of the engine without the covers, it looks like a Taurus SHO manifold... only it's missing the secondaries.

Aznfunkyflip said he got some kind of hose/wire covers for his that had a slice through the middle going lengthwise, and just put that over the wires to make them look better. I guess I'm going to have to try that. I swear, I totally bought the worst year 6th Gen. 2000 had the crappy ignition system of the 01-02, but not the cool body kit look. It's like I lost out on two things.

2000 is such a weird year for the accord - a mix of both 01-02 and 98-99. well at least you got warranty on your tranny?
