Buying 2012 6-6?

Hello all, am in the market to replace my current '05 6-6 and was looking at the civic si sedan and accord sport, getting out of the sport i saw a black accord coupe tucked in the back marked 6,000 off. I'm planning on making the purchase but just wanted some input from the guys on here if theres anything to watch out for or question them about? Car is a fully loaded EX-L with navi...also noticed a dvd player in the back im assuming this will play movies while parked?

P.S. this thing is a rocket! definitely lived up to the hype was surprised at how much faster it felt than my car

Thanks, Matt

The DVD player in the back is for the nav disc, if I'm not mistaken.

Here is the 2012. So far I like it more than the '05 but there's tradeoffs. I think the J30 made better power, not more just better it would pull all the way to redline at a constant rate, the J35 seems to fizzle out around 5k or so..after looking at the dynos the torque falls off pretty bad which is a disappointment but still accelerates well to redline. With that said this thing is a noticeably faster than the 7th gens as everyone knows, it easily chirps into 3rd gear on dry pavement. I believe the biggest reason for the quickness is gearing. 1st and 2nd seem roughly the same but 3rd is quite a bit shorter not sure about 4th and 5th but i really wish 6th was longer at 75 this thing is running at 2700 which seems way too high to me if i remember correctly the 3.0 was only at 2500 at 75 I would really like to see this at 2200, it'd probably stress the tranny too much so I'll trust honda as usual and deal with it lol. As far as handling goes other than being new suspension I dont think there's much of a difference. The '05 had 17x8 with 235/45 so grip seems about equal although I haven't really gotten into the corners with this one yet. The interior is also an improvement much roomier and updated but still has the feel of an accord to me. The only downside I've found is the reduced visibility out of the back windows and I miss the slots for cup holders in the doors even though you can still fit drinks there. Navi is nice but not necessary, the audio sounds excellent and the addition of "oh ****" handles was a good idea. Overall I love the car it's a perfect vehicle for what I need and an improvement over the previous generation, but I'm still waiting for a true Honda performance car! If they'll put something on the market with RWD or AWD, 3400# or less, 6 speed and 350+ hp I would trade this in without a second thought but I guess we can all continue dreaming
