#120 of 158 Need advice on adding a spoiler to 2007 Accord EX
Jul 12, 2008 (4:21 pm)
I lease a 2007 Accord EX. I do not plan to purchase the car at the end of the lease. Are there any restricitons on adding accessories to a lease? Also, any advice on where to purchase the spoiler? Is there any benefit of ordering
through the dealer?

Don't worry, as long as you don't deform the look of the Accord, go all weird on it, than you can pretty much upgrade it all you want. In fact, dealers typically already do this to many of their cars on the lot before even sold, or before sold as a used car. They did this to my car when I turned it in. They even added pin strips. Of course, I would buy genuine parts for it, so it all comes together well. It only makes it look more appealing, of course to certain point. I think the deck lid spoiler looks better on the Accord than the "Wing" spoiler, but if you just get the decklid spoiler, than use lose the nice led brake lamp that comes on the wing spoiler. Black, with the decklid, looks very classy!
Remember it is a lease, 3 years does go by pretty fast, but its always cool to trick it out a bit while you have it.
#122 of 158 Upgrades to 2008 Accord LX
Sep 01, 2008 (1:47 pm)
I just got a 2008 LX sedan and love it. Techincally I wanted the EX or EX-L, but the price just wasn't worth it for me (well, it was but I'd rather use my money on other things). So, my option is to slowly add some stuff to my LX. I already picked up the EX alloy wheels and tires, added a leather trimmed steering wheel, etc.
What I'm really wanting to know is could I add a new center console to replace the one I have? I want XM radio but the LX doesn't have it standard, I'd have to buy something at Best Buy and I want it all to look stock. Is this possible? I'm assuming that all of the parts would techincally be interchangable in the Accord Sedan models, but no telling. Just curious...
#123 of 158 2008 Accord Seat Covers?
Sep 02, 2008 (11:49 am)
Thinking about putting on seat covers to protect the seats on our new 08 Accord LX-P. Has anyone any recommendations? I would like to make sure that the side airbags still work - bought some factory seat covers for our Mazda5 that had the sides cut out.

I'd like to see some feedback too. I stumbled on this and wasn't sure what to think...
Then, someone in my neighborhood recently bought a silver V6 coupe...I kept drive by to look, something about it really looked great. In addition to the dark gray painted wheels, it noticed that it had the ground effects. Looked integrated, didn't scream "aftermarket".
#125 of 158 Best Car Cover to use for 2009 Accord LX Sedan?

I just got my 2009 Accord LX Sedan and need a car cover. Is one just as good as another? Any suggestions would be great, thank you!

need a car cover.
Actually, there is a big difference. I've never used one but I remember reading about how the cheaper versions can easily scratch your paint. I'd try to get some personal recommendations if possible. Of course, it depends on how much you care about the finish on your car.

For my 03 sedan, I bought the cover made for the car by Honda (from HandAaccessories.com). It is a good cover, but it is not weatherproof. The covers they sell at Pepboys fit ok, but are more likely to scratch the paint. So I used the Honda cover, and the semi waterproof cover from Pepboys over the Accord cover. For a cover that will keep the car dry in a downpour you will pay big bucks.
PS: Many covers say they are weather resistant, which is not even close to weatherproof. Check the fine print on that.
#128 of 158 Spec for Winter Alloy Rim
Oct 15, 2008 (8:27 pm)
Mine is a 2008 Ex-L-V6.
I am planning to put on a set of winter tires this winter and like to mount them on alloys. I understand the wheels are 17 x 7.5". Can someone please advice on the bolt pattern & offset?
