    Nice, with the EX, if you ever think about doing a 5 Lug conversion, it will be a lot cheaper and easier!

    ^All 4cyl 6GA’s are 4lug, all V6 6GA’s are 5lug. LX and EX both had i4/V6. DX was i4 only.

    Congrats man, why did you get rid of the old one?

    Car looks to be in great condition, but those headlights need some TLC.

    It's not SMR, it looks more like FPR.

    Congrats on the Accord purchase.

    Enjoy the luxuries the EX has to offer.
