Re: Richard's '02 V6 Coupe EX-L

Here's how the LED DRLs look at dusk. Was surprised how bright they are when it gets dark.

Re: Sil2DrV6's 2002 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 (56K)

It's been a while since the last update. My son was born almost 3 months ago, and most of my time got sucked into his attention 'n care but I was able to work on some stuff that my car also needed my attention.

Originally Posted by Sil2DrV6 View Post
New Stoptech rear rotors & Stoptech Street Performance pads, along with replaced stud & lug nut. One less thing to worry. But.. boy, they get dusty so quick!
Had these for 3.5 yrs and both of these ended its life. R.I.P. Figured that the rotors didn't really have a proper surfacing job done in the beginning. Might have lasted longer than 3.5 yrs if I had that done. Didn't like the pads either, so no more Stoptech St Performance pads. Simply they were just way too dustier than my front Posi Quiet pads.. for my OCD taste.



Stoptech Rotors with Centric Posi Quiet ceramic pads. Wanted the slotted one like my previous one, but I got the drilled + slotted one by shop's mistake lol. Decided to keep it that way for the hell of it lol. If these are going to last for 3.5 yrs again, I will go with the Pilot's rotor or something next time.



The LED indicator for my security system broke off..



Thought about soldering it but I found these online and it was too convenient.



Decided to use two of them. Why not lol.



My left exhaust muffler has been slightly sagging lower than my right muffler. Told my mechanic, and he gave me an air intake clamp to tighten my hanger. Prob solved.



A little throwback pics from last year in fall during the car collision I had. There's a reason why I wasn't shooting from the other side of the car lol. Now that I see these, I kindda miss my black housed headlights a little bit haha.

Re: Richard's '02 V6 Coupe EX-L

Hey Richard...are those BWR hangers used on your whole exhaust system? If so...how many will I need and do you have a part number?
