Nice stance, but I'd put something more JDM like Advans

Wow, the Accord gets so common but once in a while, you look at one for a bit and realize they look very good.

Wheels absolutely ruin this one, by the way.

Looks like a cheap 4 cyl, btw. The V6 comes with dual exhausts and the expensive 4 cylinders come with fogs.

Wow, surprised by the comments. These are some wheels I can get behind! They look great and I dig the big lip out back.

This is your 4th thread where I've disagreed with the majority of posters on wheel design. Interesting.

Makes the Accord look quite aggressive.

I quite like the Accord though. Styling seems to strike a good balance between pleasing the masses and being just a little bit different.

Thanks.

Mostly a byproduct of having nothing to do when driving along. I really enjoy guessing the model of cars at night though, when you are far away from them and can only see the lights vaguely, gives you a rush when you are right.

Not a fan of staggered wheels on FWD cars. Looks like it's faking everything.

That's a really nice accord, we don't get a coupe version in oz.

But everyone is right the wheels look terrible. I don't think I've seen 1 stand out set o rims from vossen. Great offsets, stance and high quality pictures but the wheels themselves are pretty much average looking.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I never understood buying an average car and investing large dollars into cosmetic upgrades. Personally, I'd rather save the cash for a year or two and step up to the next level of car.

Once again....all show...NO go.

P.S. Not hating on the wheels....not a fan of these....but actually like the ones on the IS's.
