First 2011 Accord Coupe to come through our dealership

As the title states. I just snapped a few pix from my phone while I prepped this car. I was extremely busy or I would have had more. Noticeable differences are front, rear, and I'm not 100% sure, but the rear cup holders have a black trim around them (no pics tho :/ ).. really sharp IMO

Really not too fond of the tail lights though ...

I'm not liking the taillights. and only getting 22 for a 4banger. Rather get something else for the price.

The car is STILL unattractive. +1 on the tail lights. Even the minor changes on the sedan model look weird.

Looks like a g6 rear end, and not in a good way. LOL @26k for a I4. I paid under 27 for a EXL-6.

Thanks for posting the pics. I am not impressed with the changes. I much prefered the 08-10 style of the coupe in every way. The grill and the tails made it worse. +1 on the G6 rear end. Why honda why!

Another ugly ass coupe IMO.... Where did the back half of the car go? It looks like it was rear ended!

Front bumper looks like a fat kid with dimples smiling. Trunk is so big and plain, rear bumper is just plain with no grooves or curves.

Oh well.. Disappointed like everyone else.

So I had another one come through today which did look a whole lot better .. it was a Taffeta White V6 Coupe EX-L ... yes it did have paddle shifters and I took it for a little test drive ... just as i thought the paddle shifters were sooooo slow in response, but better than the fit's IMO. I am partial to white coupes beings I own one haha but I'm not gonna lie ... I did like the rims a whole lot on this one














I realize now these are some pretty $hitty pix ... sorry about that lol I'll get more on Mon, but you can see the cup holder thing I was talking about in the one and the paddles in the other.




* Note: While the car is on the lift the suspension isn't loaded, so the wheel gap is not that big normally .. (unless you lift it like a bada$$) Also, I was not taking that one pic while driving I was stopped before turning out of my dealership ... for the record

The trim panel under the rear windows changed too. They were all Ivory too correct? I see they changed to black and it stands out like a sore thumb. Looks odd and out of place IMO. Thanks for the pics brotha.
