My Accord Coupe

I bought my accord coupe last month and started to try and figure out what I wanted to do with it. First thing was a LED interior swap and license plate lights.

Here is the car - stock



Then I bought wheels & tires - MB Battles 18 x 9.5 +23 Fallen 512s 235/40/18 out back 225/40/18 up front. Sourced out some Neuspeed Race lowering springs.



Rolled the rear fenders. Relocated the rear bumper tabs and moved the front inner fender to on top of the tabs.



Then put on the wheels





Overall I think its a good start. Wish it was lower so now I will source out some ground control coilovers and need a CAI.

Looking good.

Dropping the car makes it look 100 times better, and handles better.

Good start my man, heading in the right direction
But just some words of advise, your stock shops will be blown within the next 3-4 months with those springs. Happened to my rears and my friends setup as well.
I suggest Koni's shocks they're the best and also will lower the car as they have perch settings, Tokico Blues are decent as well.
Keep up the work

Took the clip out and used a dremel to remove the original mounting tab. Then drilled another hole and used safety wire to keeps things held together! Tight fit!

I like this. I prefer my tires to be a little fat on the wheel, but they look good on your car.

+1 for us having the exact same car haha looks great bud! If you're ever looking to sell your stock V6 wheels, I could use a couple to replace some curb rash I have from previous owner

What about the Tein lowering springs? Will those also cause my shocks to go out in a few months?

Very nice choice of colors. If I were you I'd personally throw on a full lip kit for extra sexiness

I have a 2003 Accord Coupe and am looking for about the same height but thinking of going the full coilover route right off the bat. Any suggestions? The Eibach's and the Teins caught my eye.

Looks great, but needs to be just a little lower for that wheel & tire package.
