Some good pics. I really like the one with the Honda Parts and Service in the background. Just not digging the car. It may take some time.

my favorite is the second. I like the nice clean red color!



It's gonna take some time for me too

btw: is it just me, or does the hood look to long in this new design & the back end not being enough.

Yeah the rear kinda looks stubby like the new 1 series BMW... Or those old 318i Bimmers.

It's not the length that makes it look bad IMO, but the ridiculous overhang, but that's a trait common to all FWD vehicles. Long hood and short tail is a design feature, and I personally like it. Later.

Whew...

aren't we all lucky the world doesn't revolve around the personal style of you wankers then... yes indeed. The car is really really a great design, regardless if it passes your own personal taste test. The 3.5 is refined and superb, the six speed is well mated, the new rear suspension and LACK of macpherson mistake up front makes for a great great car. On a personal note, I try and look for function over the shallow appeal of visual aesthetics.

Well... if you post your comments we're gonna post our retort, if you don't like it, keep your comments to yourself. Jeez, My comments were essentially a correct assessment of your complete lack of style. LMAO

On a side note... it's not my accord.... I didn't build it, I didn't design it. Your views were critical of Honda not me so your point of view, and essentially your argument, is baseless and indeed pointless... get the point.
ROFL

I do believe all of us stated opinions on the car w/o taking personal shots at you or your liking for the car. Then your retort was to call us wankers and tell us we have lack of style. At least we have class. Watch the attitude newbie.

schu ... beautiful ride man. is it the 6-speed? yeah, i agree that some people may not like the new look and that was my 1st impression too. but the more i see the car that more i like how it looks. my only nag are the wheels. get some nice aftermarket wheels (black with chrome lip) on that bad boy, remove the mud guards, add the body kit and that car is gonna rock!

Here is a comparrison with the HFP kit from your dealer:



Eibach left/HFP Right

----------------------------------------------------

I am working directly with koni on making a prototype shock set up based on the 2812 long body, its about 3 weeks into the project so I think it make be delivered in another 4-5 weeks. I have a set(five) of Volk RE30's coming, and I am going to put the car on a strict weight diet. There may be a FAL back half window conversion in the future to. The biggest addition will be an alcon set up for the front... but I want to get the balance of the car right(weight/handling/grip) before going into the braking system



The Schu collection:







For you other guys that caught the brunt of my attention, I want to appologize... I am sorry. But if provoke a bull, does he not charge?

Anyway, lets all carry on as if nothing has happened.

That picture is a result of focal length of the camera... it really distorted the body shape



To me it suggest more of a Audi TT look, but again in essence its a camera trick. Sorry for provoking your attention.
