hello everyone, my name is Jamm, some of you may already know me from v6p but here is my 07 accord coupe ex-l. Got the car about 3 years ago and since then burnt a whole in my wallet to have her looking the way she looks right now.

on to the pics: :thmsup:

I don't have a pic of her when i got her but here is a pic i found on google of how she exactly looked coming out the lot. Pinstripes and everything.



first thing i did was removed the pinstripes and later on added HIDs and changed the interior lights







Next thing i did was bought front and rear lip. AIT roof spoiler and did the TSX side mirror mod. ebay foglights and the window deflector. i also had the tein springs. (not in any specific order)









i also swapped my 6-disc radio for the navi.





the BF got me an exhaust system. dont know how to spell the name lol



picked up a set of 08 v6 rims and wrapped in nankang tires.



recently slapped on FF type 2 coilovers and wicked rear camber





How she is looking and sitting as of now.

My 6 disk is dead but the radio still works. So my question, how much and how hard was the navi swap? I've got the same rims on my 05 6-6. Hope to do the 07 rear swap soon! Other then that awesome ride!

As I've always told you on V6P, Jamm, our cars could be sisters! :thumbsup: I wish we weren't 3k miles apart - would love to do a photo shoot of them together!

I'm not really fond of the HIDs but i just needed brighter lights. I'm planning on doing retrofit mod on some headlights soon. I just recently got the rims with tires && it has not rain in Cali recently so have not truly tested it on different weathers but so far I'm liking it.

@ z: lol I wish. The money to do that swap && time. I wish I just got a 6 speed. Would have made life easier haha

@ Ben: ikr?! Lol fly your car over to Cali so we can do a shoot !

@ Kennyd: I can't fully quote you the right price since I got the navi && sub display for free but I got the entire wiring harness from Martin, for $300. I think some people spent almost $1,000 on the whole swap. But don't quote me on that since I am unsure. It was a self explanatory install since Martin gave me instructions to which wire to install.

Nice car! :thmsup:

It's just a cell phone holder for my iPhone. That I got for $3 on eBay.

@marceloleon: I plan to do the retrofits soon. Hopefully.

I have the same setup, F&F1's and rear camber.

My stock rims are all corroded where the clear coat chipped off.

I need to find a set of stock rims like yours.

Hit up Firestone and go for the lifetime alignment deal (if they still have it). Its the best $120 I've spent and I've gotten at least a dozen alignments since I bought it in late 2010.

I've always put this off whenever they asked me to purchase it. After a few alignments I would buy it then end up selling or wrecking the car shortly after. :dunno:

Not sure if it's a bad luck thing since I don't believe in luck but I don't know if I'd buy it again.

Sounds like bad luck to me. No other way of explaining it. I bought it because I knew I'd have the car longer than 4 years (which I have) and it already paid for itself multiple times over.

What?? No way I was planning on doing my alignment from my dads friend for $70 but I think this deal is waaaay better. Thanks for the heads up !
