Good information, I was looking to do the same! Many thanks.
So far I have done the rubber and rims (sitting on 18's) and I must say the car is starting to show its racing DNA. Once I get the sway bar in I am gona be a kid in a candy store!!!
Did you have any trouble with your HID's? I am looking to do a set but I have seen some VERY poorly focus ones that look like $h it

no issues at all with the HID's. The focus issue you reference could be that they are using HID's on a vehicle with a poor reflector to begin with. The 7th Gens have a good design and don't scatter the light in a poor manner at all. Thus they won't cause any glare. Also, consider staying with temps no higher than 5000k. Mine are 4300k I believe. That's pretty much pure white. Anything higher just adds color and actually reduces the usable light you'll have.

Thanks for the HID info. I totally agree with you on the 5000k or less temp. The really blue 6000k (?) looks cheap, and the whole idea for my switch is so I have MORE white light. So you are running the 4200k and they are white white? Do you know what BMW or Mercedes uses for temp? I like that look too.

My HID's are 4300k and are pure white. The look of MBZ or BMW's are likely due to the projector lens set up.
There are two aftermarket Projectors for the Accord, but they use a different bulb set up and from what both manufacturers wrote to me...the HID version of that bulb runs too hot to use. I'll pass and would rather use HID in my stock set up than halogens in projectors. I prefer the brighter whiter light than a nice clean cut-off of yellow.

#93 of 123 26 yr old honda accord - how and where to sell it?
May 28, 2005 (10:54 am)
I live in powell TN and now own my first honda a 1979 honda accord lx cvcc. It is much better than any older car I have EVER owned. Unfortunately we will have to sell it. According to NADA vintage value it is worth approx 1700-3600. It is very clean (almost perfect inside) with a very straight body and the motor runs great and the five speed trans is fine too. Any thoughts on where on the web to advertise to be able to sell it in order for another honda fan to enjoy it? I can't find them listed anywhere for sale in all of the common places and know nothing about clubs and or forums out there (just bumped into this one)
Thanks for your help (please no flames...... really want some help here.... next car and many more ALL HONDA)
