Our local dealer in Anniston, AL has several 2011 sedans and a couple coupes in stock. These cars, IMO, look much better in person than in pictures. The only thing I don't like is the wood grain that now comes in every sedan. I much prefer the silver trim with the gray/black interiors.

Wow I am really not liking the rear with the new lights. I know some of the members here have modded there accords with the rear light pattern but looked much better then the 2011 model.

It appears that the wood grain is only on sedans EX and above. So the LX LX-P and SE don't have it. Either way, I'm surprised that they went with the wood for every interior color on those higher trims. If anything, i would have expected them to go the other direction and get rid of the wood altogether. So I'm with you in that I prefer the other trim pieces, but from the pictures I didn't think the wood looked all that bad on the black and gray interiors.

Lol. Probably a fair observation, and perhaps you can add me to that list of people. Before they came out I was considering getting a 8.5 generation coupe, but I don't think I'm pleased enough with the styling to do so. Much prefer my '07.

Then I'm more glad that I got a 10. And that's why I did not get white or blue or red or other colors that feature Ivory interior because it has wood trim.

I don't mind wood trim IF it's real wood. Otherwise, it just looks like plastic after a year or two IMO.

I think the sedans look pretty good. The i4 bumpers on the sedans look more aggressive than the previous version. The EX and V6 wheels are starting to grow on me too.

Now that the I4 and V6 bumper are virtually the same except V6 has integrated hole for fogs while I4 is flat with option of fogs cover.

The rear lights on the sedan would make me want to go to another brand.

your absolutely right, and thats fine, b/c honestly I was never a fan of the 8th gen at all, and IMO they've now destroyed the look even more to the point I dont think it could get any worse looking... but again

THATS MY OPINION, which Im pretty sure we are all entitled to

So as I see in your avitar you too have halos, so I do see the reason behind your liking of the new sedans besides the hoodline, the new rear bmw wannabe lights, you might as well buy a beamer if thats the case

You don't like the 8G, fine.
Other people like it, fine.
We all entitled to our opionions.

He likes to put halo lights on his car, that is his opinion. He didn't ask money from you to buy the lights, neither did he post up his car picture to seek your humble opinion. It has nothing to do with you.
