Hello Alex! Very clean ride, man! The paint looks very fresh, too. I noticed that your V6 emblem is a little different than USDM ones, no? The AUDM trunk looks very unique and fresh to my eyes, and I like it! Can't wait 'til you equip the F.F. Type 1! And don't forget to list your future plans!

Thanks Richard! Yes, my badge says V6L, L representing 'luxury' I assume. A few members want the AUDM trunk Coils have been delayed by 4 days because of the SEMA convention being held now .. so they can't ship it out to me until Friday..
I'll try to think of some future plans soon

Thanks man. They dropped me about 1.7" all round. Going to be dropping it another 1.5-2 inches with the coils

Hey Alex,

Nice to see an official thread up.

Car looks great after you got to it after initial purchase.

Would LOVE to get an AUDM trunk, the outer tail pieces are the same as the USDM Accord, right?

Looking forward to seeing the new stance after the coilovers.

Thanks Derek, at last I made one lol.

Yep I think only the lights on the trunk are different.

Lol me too, but it'd be more sunk than stanced

Re: LeAccord's 98 Accord Sedan CG1 V6-L [56k!]

Not sure yet .. I'd like to stick with some nice oem wheels for now, unless I find an awesome deal on a set of 18x8/9. But wheels won't be anytime too soon I think.. Money forked out for coilovers hit hard, lol.
