I'm a happy NEW owner of an 06 Accord sedan....but I want to give it some oomph in the visual department.

Looking at some 17" shoes for her, however i'm wondering what to do about ground effects/kits. Also, I know she isnt a luxury sedan, but i'm not a racer. So what can I do to smoothen out its ride?

I'd like to have it feel like a plane at times.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I'll agree I deserved some sarcasm for the plane idea...but i'm pretty sure you know what i'm saying.

Would the best way to address a "bumpy" ride be tires or shocks/struts?

Again, I'm a newbie and just looking for answers to questions.

~Thanks

yea i did test drive the car... However I didn't take the car over a cobblestone road to see how it would react to bumpy/grainy road, so unfortunately at this point the car rides wonderful on well paved road, but here in the Northeast thats pretty much highway

Anyways, its not like i'm riding a stagecoach or anything, the car is stable...its CPO and overall i'm happy with it. Just wondering if I could get any input as to how to alleviate some of that roughness at times...my best guess is a nice set of tires


BTW...thanks ethanol will look into the blackedout lights

New Tires, Tire Pressure also affects ride. If you have 15" wheels, and go to 17" wheels your sidewall will be reduced a little, possibly affecting you cobblestone effect worst.

Like a G6??

Check out tein, if they don't have comfort tech coils I'm sure you can get something custom from them whether it be springs or coilovers.
