Modifications

Drivetrain
Previous-Generation Accord OEM Plug-'n-Play Horn Set
-- Has the "American" sound of the 7th, 8th-Gen horns, as opposed to the Civic-like sound of the OEM 9th-Gen horns. (The previous "Japanese" horns, from the 6th-Gen back, sounded more "urgent.")
Exterior
xPel Ultimate Paint Protection Film (limited "self healing" capability--scratches, etc.)
-- Full front bumper and fascia, headlights, foglights.
-- Extended hood and front fenders. (But managed to get a chip immediately above film boundary--will have entire hood done next time.
-- A-pillars and roof in front of sunroof.
-- Custom rocker-panels and lower-doors, which blended in with..
-- ..entire rear-bumper.
-- Fantastic job done by Block-A-Chip, Mentor (Cleveland) OH; lower cost compared to Toledo/SE Michigan-area vendors, with better-quality materials. (One-man outfit.)

Putco "Pure Optic 360" LED Foglamps (College Hills Honda)
-- More light output to the front, with a little less side coverage, compared to OEM.
-- Might try Phillips options next time, but there is a little more light present (though with the Touring's LEDs, there's less of a need for these in general). They are a perfect Kelvin match for the OEM LEDs, and I might wait until Phillips certifies an LED high-beam for this car, just to complete the look (as the color-temperature difference when the brights are on is still enough of a distraction).
