The TL is definitely a nice ride. I actually almost bought one a few times over the past year, and then decided to wait till now. So when comparing price I figured it might be worth it to spend the tiny bit more and get a 'NEW" accord, over a recertified TL.
The pro's about the TL are that it will be recertified with the full warranty and the car has been in production for a year prior. It is definitely a sleek ride, and feels a bit faster over the v6 accord even though it might not actually be quicker. I also like that you can use the manual shift in the TL. The cons are that a used 2005/2006 can still easily cost between $25K to $27K with average miles. The base TL isn't truly missing anything the EX-L has so I look at the TL as a top of the line ride, like the EX-L Honda.
The pro's of the new accord are just that, it is NEW The cons are that I hate the idea of buying a first year car since there will definitely be bugs that they will find and have to work out. Anyone else worry about this?

Excuse me, not to be rude, but isn't this the subject of "prices paid" and not "I4 Vs V6" post? I asked a question about whether I paid a fair amount and now it's lost among posts on 4cyl and 6cyl opinions... Sorry for my outburst...

Are you happy with your deal? That's what matters.
When people come here AFTER they have already bought their car, it's likely some spoil sport will rain on your parade and tell you how they paid less!

"... Thoughts? are the V-6 or Nav worth the $2K+ price tag in your opinion. I sure do want them both ..."
Try the thread for Accord Navigation. There are several posts regarding this issue, including my input that you may find helpful.

Drive the 4 again and decide if it's enough power. Of course the V6 will be more power, but you have to decide for yourself whether the 4 cylinder is enough.
If it has more power than what you were driving before, the it obviously has enough power. If you are used to driving something much faster, then you may have a problem with getting used to less power.
Then you also need to decide whether a few extra mpgs will matter to you.
It doesn't matter what someone else bought since you are the one who will be driving it and buying the gas.
