Definitely like what I see on this 8GF/L but July is a long way away - gives me time to consider my options....

They still haven't managed to bolt a 7th gen boot on the back or get rid of the DPF then. Hopefully now that have stopped messing around with 2.4 (sic) they can concentrate on the important things

Can't remember where, but I read two reviews that said the handling was too hard. Wasn't there a TSB for the dead centre issue?

who say the 8th gen hasn't got good handling? the steering dead centre it can be massive annoyance for a 7th gen owners upgrading but handling is spot on.
DPF there isn't any issues so why the bad publicity , forget about DPF horror stories on other mickey mouse cars. 8th gen is sound a pound.
I would agree that the 8th Gen has great handling - cant fault it. Too many motoring journalists deliberately look for faults (which usually arent there) to take the shine off what is otherwise a fine automobile.
Equally, on the numerous short trips etc, the DPF hasnt flagged up once. This version of the Accord is solid in every conceivable aspect and leaves a lot of other competitors high-n-dry.

I agree with Rob the inclusion of daylight running lights would be a great addition.
Also an option of the more powerful diesel in the GT would be nice rather than keeping it solely for the Type S

Also, from the new images, I wouldnt be surprised if the DRL "solution" is to have the sidelights stay on, like they do on some cars (like Polo's, A4s etc) rather than use LEDs.

When reversing the Accord up unlit drives using the door mirrors it is rather dark on the drivers side because of the one light on the nearside.
One rear fog light is no problem at all, I only use mine when in really thick fog, if in a queue of traffic I turn it off so as not to blind other drivers, I wish others would do the same.
