Are the I4 177hp engine audio properties annoying to you as the I4 190 hp in coupes and EX/EXL sedans are to me?

What exactly do you mean? Do you mean if it's as loud as the 190hp one? If so at which rpm range or do you mean all the time?

Mines sounds louder at idle compared to my 01 4cly Accord with 165k miles on it. Once it gets going they sound the same. They both sound pretty much the same to me all the way up to redline.

i guess it all has to do with the weight of the vehicle...it's a shame. idk about you super but unless the future accords weigh less i'm not sure if i'll ever consider a new accord with a 4. my mom's 07 I4 sedan is good and i enjoy driving her car.

:dunno: it does say on the brochure that the lx-s and ex i4's have a high flow exhaust system which gives it the extra hp over the lx and lx-p. which could be why its louder.

I share the 09 with my dad so it was either accord or camry. Thing weighs over 400lbs more than my 97 accord. I can't see them getting any lighter as most people want bigger cars and more equipment. Going with more high strength steel than the 50% they currently use will save more weight. That probably won't happen anytime soon as companies try to cut their production cost.
