Accord build will not be for performance.

I've already done colored gauge needles on my Fit:








For the Accord gauge needles, you need to take apart part of the dash to access the cluster:
2013-2014 LCD screen removal

Using sharp scissors, you cut into red plastic duo tang type plastic.

Stick on using Clear Shoe Goo as this is completely removable.

You have to cut larger than the needles themselves as it needs to cover up the black parts, otherwise it won't stick properly and you'll see the adhesive on the lighted parts which looks bad.

Savanini Throttle Body Spacer
Notice any difference on anything? Do you document fuel mileage etc? Any Dyno runs before/after?

Throttle body spacers Some sites say small gains, some say loss of low end. Like many "cold air intakes" they make a difference in the sound but not others parts. Some low restriction and CAI do provide more power but only at full throttle and higher rpm. I had tried a K&N on my Corolla. Blackstone labs picked it up on my next used oil analysis as a lot more dirt (silica) and asked if I had a performance filter or to verify correct install or post filter leaks. I went back to stock, less dirt + better life for me. Never noticed any performance or MPG gains on that.

Details???? Purchased wheel or just cover? Installed yourself?

Looks very thick now. What is the diameter now for hands?
It's a nappa leather cover that I had to sew myself that I bought off AliExpress. I am not the first to have an black all perforated cover with red stitching as I've already seen a few on here before I did mine.

The Accord is around the 8th cover I've done. 2 on my dad's CRV and I guess about 5 on my Fit, so I like to think I know what I'm doing.

Honestly this one for the Accord is the worst leather cover that I've ever worked with. There was too much material in most of it and I had to trim down some areas, and resew in some new anchor lines.

Here are most of the one's I did on my Fit:






And one I did on my dad's CRV that I have a picture of:
