      This is a continuation of my Malipoo Wood thread. Though this would have better visibility among our CL Honda fanboi-gurl base.

      Sealed the deal on a 2017 Accord Sport SE 6MT in San Marino Red. So excited, much want since they came out. $22,900 before tt&l. More pics when I pick it up next week. It will be a fond farewell to the Kizashi.

      Curious, what else did you consider (Passat R line etc) and what made you purchase this?

      Because I wan't it...what else is there. It's an incredible value over CPO/used. Basically a $100 more a month for new.

      That reminds me of how a friend of mine is still cruising around in his Kizashi that's pretty much the same color as your Accord. He does have a manual tranny in it too and is quite happy with it. It's hard to believe in my building's small garage that only parks 12 cars we have 3 Suzuki's in it or the Kizashi plus a Grand Vitara plus my motorcycle.

      I drove one of those when they came out, it reminded me an awful lot of my 1G 6MT TSX that I loved, although the Accord is a larger car.

      Hope you enjoy it. Good looking cars.

      (Get it? He has a Dodge too.)

      I hope you like the Accord though. At least you could get yours in an actual color.

      First "mod" is to vinyl wrap the chrome beak in black. The rest is good to go.

      That right there is a lot of new, non-penalty box car for $22.9k. My experience with Honda sedans is that it will be fun to drive and be reliable for 10-15 years. Well done.

      I knew I had a weird urge to buy an Accord Sport.
