I like the color a lot. From the first picture, it seems to be black.

Re: LeAccord's 1997 EK4

My bad, I forgot to add the colour lol. It's Cypress Green Pearl (CGP) hehe CG ...

But thanks! I like the colour too, in different lighting it looks different, much like the DEP on our accords.

Re: LeAccord's 1997 EK4

I see we stuck with the DEP family at least. I had no idea these came with B16's though. Good start for a build.

I am sad to see the Accord go, as it was in my top 3 favorite 6G sedans. But hopefully you like the civic and have fun with it.

Thanks Evan, that means a lot that my car was in your top 3

Main reason was the fuel consumption on my accord and the automatic transmission.. And I'm young, lol. I currently like to drive manual more and I hope to have fun with this car on the track once I have a few more things done to it. I won't be stancing it .. sorry Vlad, hahaha.

You might be the only civic owner that is into cars saying you will not stance your civic. Also, on 5-speed's in Australia, is 1st gear on the left like here in the US, or on the right? I've wondered this for quite some time.

Re: LeAccord's 1997 EK4

You're still in green. The legend continues haha.

VTI-R's are AUDM exclusives for 2 & 3 doors right? Your front shot is reealy hard to tell between the two. Nice tease lol. Nevertheless, your body kit seems very OEMish. The front kit looks kind of similar to the 6gen CG coupe's OEM optional one.

Tanabe TM is my favorite. It's so elegant, isn't it? Haha I bet your list will grow by gazillions of aftermarket temptations (and you know that those will also hurt your wallet sometimes. )

So nice to see your new ride, Alex. I like it!
