Hello Brex,

The Carbon Fiber accent on the steering actually looks better in person. The pic on our website is just too small for you to see.

About the D2's, they're doing very well. No sign of defects and the spring rate and shock rebounds did not change. The only change is, we hardened the knob setting for a different driving experience. Overall we're satisfied with the performance and price.

Our clear vinyl is rated to last 5 or more years and about 2mil thin but thick enough to protect the paint from everyday road debris. We installed this in the front bumper and front body kit and still doing well after a year. There is a seem from where the clear vinyl ends but only noticable from upclose. One of our customers even wrap their front end with black vinyl. We've wrap some cars side view mirror/hood/trunk with vinyl before.

Paint is ok on vinyl as long as the paint is plastic safe. We heard Krylon Fusion spray paint is a good one to try.

Wow!! I'm so glad the 7th gens already have a full coilover suspension.

On your site you say "the car feels like a racecar." Does it ride as smooth as stock? I had Teins on my 6th gen and LOVED 'em.

Tignws, well get back with you. We're currently looking for your car like yours to match our vinyl materials with.

loxllxol, it was an exaggerated comment due to the fact the box said its for "Track Racing Cars Only." But the ride is much better than GC's over stock shock and the stock setup. I'm sure Tein is good also im not sure how they would rank vs D2. From the specs D2 seems to be better in our opinion.

A Magazine Publication should do a special on Coilvover systems like Bilstein , Teins,D2s,etc since theres lots of questions concerning this topic.

Taiwan.. D2 is made in Taiwan..

$800 is for D2.. same spec Tein would be run at $13xx..

BTW- We're selling our Ground Control Coilover Springs, less than a year old. Still have the box and all the parts. The driver of the Accord payed close to $500 brand new (1st month it came out) but we don't how much it cost now,specially used ones. Please PM if interested. We'll sell to the buyer with the best offer. Thanks again.

We did some research for your car and found the perfect match for the Accord Graphite Pearl paint. We special ordered this vinyl material for the (http://www.v6performance.net) Accord drivers who needs them.

Pricing is the same as the Mettalics Vinyl Sheets. If you or anyone is interested in ordering, when checking out on our site just put a note in the comment field such as "vinyl to match Accord Graphite Pearl"

Thanks and Regards,
