    8th Gen 2.0 i-vtec timing chain replacement, unusual?

    Thats way over priced for a 12 year old car....if you were to go for a 57 plate for example you could pick up a mk7 2.0 auto for a fraction of the price if your looking to save money.My chain driven 2.0 auto drives like a dream at 95k miles.As far as i understand you should never need to change...

    Need an opinion - grey foil

    I like it but i like the backdrop more! Some more shots from around the car would be good but the job itself seems done to a high standard :)

    What have YOU done to your Accord lately?

    Another job ticked off the list today.....fixing those wet front fog lamps.Decided i didn't want to spend £70 on a new pair so took them off car and referbished myself.Luckily for me the seal joining the glass lens to the metal body was so far gone i was able to seperate with a little heat.Wire...

    headunit upgrade

    Thats a neat n tidy solution exactly what im after. Im going to buy a similar single din unit and attempt to use the RCA audio out and run it through my existing adaptor.I see no reason why it shouldnt work? The only other thing id need to do is power the unit.I do have full steering wheel...

    headunit upgrade

    Had an idea.My current xcarlink adaptor has a 3.5mm jack which is how the audio from my current dab adaptor inputs the head unit.Could i simply buy a 3.5mm female to RCA male cable and connect new single din unit that way.All the single devices seem to have a L/R RCA audio out at the back.All i...

    headunit upgrade

    That would be a big help thanks.Car electrics i try to leave alone but im sure with help i can figure this out.I cannot loose any functionality of the heating controls obviously but i can manage without the built in CD changer.FM i never use and never will so i can wave bye bye to that.As for...

    What have YOU done to your Accord lately?

    self leveling headlights

    My executive has the washer nozzles but not HID fortuately.Im actually one of the few that are happy with my light output of my halogens,the nightbreaker bulbs i fitted made a huge difference.Btw i disconnected the pump to the headlamp washers as they consume a stupid amount of water.Got fed up...

    7th gen facelift flat wiper retrofit

    Just fitted my aerotwins also and they dont give the flat tidy finish the OP detailed but they are much improved.Id have been happier if the arm had sat around 10mm closer to the screen thus below airflow over bonnet but i can live with the result.I may try again next year when they are due for...

    self leveling headlights

    I had no idea the headlights did auto adjust on the mk7 accord (maybe a facelift upgrade?).Anyway i have a pre facelift tourer with stock and they seem to remain fixed unless i raise beam up/down from the leveller dial to the right of the steering wheel.Just to add adjustment from within car is...

    headunit upgrade

    I have read a few accounts of this since i posted here and why i havnt gone ahead and just bought one.I currently have a pure highway dab adaptor hard wired through xcarlink adaptor to the spare socket on the underside of the premium headunit inside dash (did not need Y splitter).I lost no...

    chrome door/window trim

    I guess the chrome trim is a marmite thing...love it hate it lol.There are rolls of chrome effect trim on ebay you can trim to size although ive been unable to find the exact size id need.For it to look perfect and of course keep costs low the scrapyard option maybe best but im unsure how they...

    chrome door/window trim

    Hi I want to chrome all the window seals/edges around top n bottom of my tourer windows to match the door handles.Looks like some came this way from the factory but are there any aftermarket solutions...maybe others have done this? All trims on my car are currently black rubber or a tape type...

    Just bought myself some too although the os wiper arm may not sit quite as flat as the OP upgrade? Either way theyll look much better than the garbage current look so ill look forward to them arriving
