Nice choice. I take it your accord doesn't have auto headlights. If you want, you can leave the lights on and when you unlock it, it should turn on the headlights like you're used to with your...

If you're going to buy winter tires, buy Blizzak's or the X-Ice. Both are great, Blizzak's being a little noisier and very slightly better grip. For a FWD accord, I don't think you really "need"...

Looks like I'll be moving through the gate when I'm skipping gears from now on. It shouldn't be an issue if you double clutch it though, should it?

Square. The only advantage of a staggered setup is having more rubber on the rear tires for a RWD car. The Accord doesn't have the power to break the tires loose from acceleration while its moving,...

Don't assume you're okay healthwise, that was a bad accident. Please go to the doctor and get checked out, sometimes your symptoms don't present right away.

I'm glad you're okay.
