#2147 of 2175 2006 Honda Accord - Bumper Guards ? ?
Nov 19, 2007 (11:25 am)
I own a 2006 Honda Accord EX-L. The car is Graphite Pearl Metallic (dark).
I have now been hit in my own parking lot TWICE over the past several months. (I'm pretty sure I know which car hit me, but since I haven't actually seen them hit me, there's not much I can do.)
Both times, it was the front passenger side bumper that was hit. The first time, I was able to polish and wax the damage out, and touch it up. This time, it's more serious, as the bumper is scuffed and actually dented a bit.
I saw this product on the 'net:
Anyone have any experience, positive or negative? Also, any reasons anyone can think of (other than aesthetics) NOT to put these on?
Thanks in advance.

Have you looked for traces of YOUR paint on the other car?
You see those type of stick-on bumper "guards" on some vehicles in the urban areas. Most that I've seen are pretty ugly, unevenly applied, or hanging off. Personally, I wouldn't bother.
#2149 of 2175 Spoiler on the way!

If anyone is looking to add a spoiler (wing or decklid) to your 06-07 Accord, there are limited colors at nearly half-price on Handa accessories, so check it out. I'm waiting on my decklid spoiler, which should be here in about a week...has anyone ever installed a spoiler themselves?

Oh, yeah, believe me, I've already done that, and also had a neighbor do that as well. We BOTH came to the same conclusion that we know EXACTLY who did it. However, since no one claims to have witnessed it, there's really nothing I can do. Naturally, I can continue to stew about it, and be amazed that someone who lives in my own condo building could do this without coming forward to admit guilt and offer to pay for the damages.

Whatever happened to an eye for an eye?! There is plenty you can do about it, and if I was that sure someone was keeping quiet about dinging up my car, they'd have their own car issues to worry about!

I'm just about to order a set from partsmaxx.com for my 07 Accord Coupe (4 cyl). From what I've researched, this site offers the lowest price. If you see a better deal, let me know.
#2154 of 2175 Rear Spoiler Problem
Dec 21, 2007 (9:19 am)
I have a 2003 Accord EX-V6 with the OEM accessory rear spoiler. This was installed when the car was purchased new, 5 years ago. Anyway, the spoiler's 3M tape keeps coming undone and the spoiler has a 1/8-inch gap, on both sides. I've had the spoiler taken off from a local body shop (recommended by the dealer) 2-different times and had the TAPE and any other factory parts replaced as well. Back in Sept of this year, I had the body shop again remove the spoiler for a 3rd-time and they added extra foam tape. Well this didn't work either! The tape is coming undone again, and everytime I go through a car wash it gets worse. I'm a car appearance perfectionist and I know all about car washes and how hard they can be on your car. I have NO choice in the Michigan SALT infested winter, but to go through a car wash. Those NO touch car washes do not work this time of year. Anyway, if any body has had this type of problem or has found a fixable solution I would appreciate a response.

I'd like to see some spoilers on the '07 accord sedan. I've only seen a couple on the road with spoilers and want to get one for mine. I have to take another look though; it does look a bit awkward since the '07 has rearlights in the middle.
