The benchmark * The best-selling car in America * The highest resale value in its class -- These are all statements that are made with regularity concerning the Accord. The Accord EX equipped with a VTEC engine is quick, frugal, and loaded with equipment.

Benchmark? Highest resale value? Quick? Loaded with equipment?

??

Maybe 10-15 years ago. :rolleyes:

Yeah so these say they will work on lowering springs and they are Koni and a great price for all four. Anyone tried these out or are these new? 67.00 a piece is a great price if they will work with the tein Stech springs.

Koni strt struts
Clean out my center console and gear shifter from all the crap and also changed out the gear shifter bulb to white. Only lacking 4-3mm bulbs for the cruise and sunroof buttons and I will be completely done with all my LEDs!

I am sure there is a SS cleaning compound that can be used that is a finer grit, that can restore the SS, but how polished/shiny does it need it be.
I cant remember exactly how "mirrored" it was the day I got it but they were pretty reflective. Even after the comet and wool, the tips are still mirrored. The mufflers aren't crisp and clear but they're still very refelctive. I'll see what kind of pics I can get.

Nice rack! :hihi:

Because of all your talk about polishing up your mufflers I decided to tackle my oem exhausts again. Last time I did it, I stopped when I got it all silver and a tiny bit shiny. This time I'm going for the mirror finish..

I'm using fine steel wool and its fine to use.. quite soft. No pun intended... :lawl:

And currently, but far from finished..

Oh and poured 47 litres of regular fuel.. $61. :( Rolling on a full tank now (I had some left before filling up) :hihi:

Just finished tacking on 1300KM/800 miles.

Runs so god damn good :kenny:

Cruise control seems to save me a lot of gas. I'm able to squeeze out 400 + miles on a single tank without stopping. I'm sure if I drove slower I'd get more out of it.
