WeatherTech window visors,
Hard wired the radar detector and mounted to rear view mirror,
Sanded, primed and painted a new honda H emblem matte black.. Undecided on whether to paint yhe other two v6 and accord the same.

Nothing big or expensive. Just little added details here and there.... I hate quarantine life..

That airbag warning......
Hahaha. I'm weird about it, it makes it feel like the car is still brand new. Gives me a false sense that its still in immaculate condition.

Personally i wanted a more permanent solution. Something about knowing it's dipped and can start peeling with one little cut or whatnot. The paint I actually used was black plastic/engine paint. Its made to stick to automotive plastics and resists scratches flakes and heat upto 250+..

I don't have anything against dipping though. Pretty much comes down to personal preference i'd say

I was pretty annoyed when my co-worker pulled mine off. However, that was on day 4 of ownership lol.
Whats cool too is that i am the second owner even.. I got it from carmax in January with 38,000 miles and today still under 40,000.. The very first owner from what carmax told me had it as a business vehicle somewhere.. It shows too.. Thing was immaculate. Pic is from carmax's listing in January FB_IMG_1587840845113.jpg

No road trips planned anytime soon. Tires off the ground, parking brake released, fuel stabilizer in the system, battery on tender.

Got my Progressive 25.4 mm Rear Sway bar installed along with the front sway bar from the v6 on my 2015 sport. I didnt want to install the front on my own and i had so much corrosion on the rear sway links i decided to have someone else deal with getting them loose for install. Expensive but damn is it worth it. I put the progressives on stiff and wow the car handles like a sports car im cheesing hard as i type this. Along with installing 15mm front and 20mm rear H&R spacers the other day, she handles reallll well boys. Currently waiting on Eibach pro kit to finally drop her after 5 year :)

Installed 19mm RSB. Thanks to this forum, it was a breeze. THANKS! Rain here for days - hope to get on the switchbacks soon to test it out.
You will feel a difference in the rain. I am running 19F/22R and I like the greatly reduced body roll and the ability to get the rear to rotate. The car still understeers in rain, but it’s more predictable.

Oil change at dealer, washer fluid and cabin air filter at advance auto.

Dealer tells me that I may have a transmission leak. I asked from where. They tell me that they have to bring it in for a full diagnostic.

Looks like I'll be going to the guy that replaced the engine to verify.

Here is the list of things I’ve done in the first week of owning my 2014 EX-L V6

  • transmission fluid change x2
  • All bulbs changed to LED (headlights too)
  • Rear shelf anti-rattle carpet installed
  • HEPA cabin filter installed
  • New wipers installed
  • Swapped the 2014 EX-L wheels with new tires from my 2010 onto this car.
  • 20% rear/50% front ceramic tint.
Love this car so far! Such a vast improvement over my 2010 EX-L 4cyl.

Are those OE tails or aftermarket? How much/where did you get them? They’re on my list!

Addressed tail pipes on my new-to-me Coupe - doesn't look like they've received much love over the years.

Started with Nevr-Dull but the stainless was discolored and there was significant buildup at the bottom of the outlet so I reluctantly used 000 steel wool. Not perfect but certainly better and you really have to look to see that it's not new :) .
