Just got my first car and new to the whole scene, a 2011 accord HFP coupe. it has the front lip and side lips and lowered an inch with the HFP rims. Besides the factory upgrades what mods should i get done first? I was thinking exhaust, wanting something that sounds nicer than stock but not that much louder that ill get complaints and tickets.
Thanks all!!

I would go with a real good set of semi-metallic brake pads. Ceramic brake material, especially in that Canadian cold, really sucks!!!!!! I bet you have to push that brake peddle real hard, especially first thing in the morning. Until the pads warm up...

Good luck.

I'd start with basic maintenance, engine oil and transmission fluid. If it's a V6 depending on mileage, a timing belt kit. Check for rust and do an undercar spray wash. Welcome to DA!

Luckily my dads the GM in a acura dealership and i was able to get it all done for relatively cheap, also had the timing belt replaced

Firstly Im aware that this was posted however, nothing recent so i thought opinions and options could have changed over time. I like my accord a lot however it sounds as quiet as my grandmas car. Anyone know some options to make it a little bit louder but not that much louder?( performance exhausts, glasspacks/cherrybombs, etc). I want it to sound nicer but not wanting to disturb my neighbors
Thanks All!
