Another Newb...from the republic of Mass!!!

Hi All-

Traded in my Solara yesterday for a shiny, new(to me) 09 Accord Coupe EXL.
My last Accord Coupe was a 92 EX raised in California and transplanted here later in life. When I sold it- she had 280K and still had original clutch.

This one is Silver and no NAV- 2.4 Auto. I did see a number of 6 Cyl/6 Speeds and entertained them for a fleeting moment- although I did hear they suffer with rev hang.

I had a look at some of the accessories- I do want to get the USB kit, and wouldn't mind a trial of XM(its not active on this one) but won't pay their crazy amount.

I bought from the fine folks at Majestic in Lincoln Rhode Island... I would highly recommend them. Stopping in there after trying to deal with Metro in Johnston RI was an extremely refreshing change!!!

Chris

Thanks-

I posted a cam pic to my facebook page... just a strictly stock Alabaster Silver... no $$$ for mods- although I shoulda countered with having them install remote start instead of USB.

Oh Well live and learn!

I was never a Silver person. My father had a Buick Century coupe back in 1976 that was Silver- and that thing faded and peeled like nobodys business. I guess that thought just stuck with me all these years.

The Silver is really growing on me though, as it seems to hide dirt better than other colors. I really like the Belize Blue or the Polished Metal, but the Polished metal I looked at certainly did not hide scratches very well.
