Finally bought a car.....!!!warning!!! its not a Bimmer

well after months of searching a car i finally picked this one up, and even though its not a bimmer im still glad cuz i didnt get to drive my 1996 5th Gen accord before my mom crahsed it, and now i will....this thing is a clone of my old car, its is the same in very single way!
first thing im doing monday is putting the oem 6-CD changer that i ripped out of the old one
List of mods to come starting as of January and onwards:

1) Rims
2) Body Kit
3) Projection HID front headlamps
4) Euro or Carbon fiber tail lights
5) Carputer (thanks for posting that on the bored miguel (sorry i dont remember 100% who it was)
6) hopefully a front splitter from T-spec
7) Air bags in each corner
8) Twin Turbo and other engine mods**

**maybe

Accords are one of the nicest import sedans. Nice color ! You won't regret it. It's a comfortable car. You picked it up for a good price too, wanna sell it for the same price?

Qimis, that silver one is badass !

On an auto 135hp Accord? I dunno man, if it were me I'd run away from all those (except for the rims and HID's) and get an H22A from a Prelude SRV. 190hp and 5-speed, instantly. Then you'd have serious machine.

All my opinion of course though. Then again I am a speed freak.

I just got an accord as well, 6th gen though, 98', silver coupe, v6. I hear its pointless to bother modding it, except for wheels and suspension, but if you plan to keep the car for a long time then why not? Its a great car, good buy

The H22A was also in the 4th gen 92-96 SR-V model. It was rated at 190hp(92-96), 195hp(97-98), and 200hp(99+).

some guy gave me an offer on a H23C for 1G flat with 83000 km on it...but even if i buy it, my dads gonna haul it and throw it out cuz he already told me "dont get to excited on the mods"....i was like "yeah 2 months isnt to far down the road"

on my b-day ima take the car to a garage and put on the HID front conversion projector lamps and the carbon fiber tails, the skirts and the rims ($4000 right there )

Meh, whatever makes you happy, I guess.

And no BMW engine will ever work, you need something from a FWD layout. H22A I tells ya. The H23C is only 160hp.
