I've been into Acura/Hondas since 1993 when my father bought a 1994 Acura integra brand new.

I've had 2 integras Ls/Gsr, RSX-s, tl-s, ej8 civic, and now finally my Accord 6-6. Currently it's in storage to protect it from the harsh ny winters.

I'm driving my 95 prelude S a beater. I've stock piled some mods that will go in this spring.

H&R sport springs on koni adjustable a
Tl-s rear swap bar and links
A-spec 17,s with dunlop direnzas

Currently car has ingals torque damp net, iPod connectivity, all season mats, Jdm dc5-r shift knob. Extreme vision bulbs, dc sports cai.

I just ordered the hondata flash pro from Evans tuning as well. J-pipe, pre car deletes, borla exhaust, 3.7 IM, and tb will finish the car out.

Thanks guys, I got her in April. She had 123,000 on her. One female owner from Manchester CT. The car was dealer maintained from day 1, and garage kept.

I was browsing autotrader when I found it and left a deposit over the phone. It was too clean to pass up. $7800 later and she was mine. Dealer replaced rear caliper, rotors, pads, fluid as well.

I can't wait for the spring for the wheels and suspension, then off to Evans tuning in PA. ImageUploadedByAG Free1389361520.412649.jpg

I would use the word "stole", not "got".

Well played, sir. The 6-6 coupe is a sexy yet smooth-shifting beast.

What is with the front plate delete? Also, is that an older plate on the other car?

Rick, that's funny. Lol, yes it was a good deal considering dealer pricing. They said everyone looked at it but wouldn't buy it because it was manual. Lol

New York had these plates in 70,s and early 80,s. They look horrible, I don't put a front one on my accord. Looking into custom plates as I can get a white one. The prelude rocks both plates to avoid being pulled over.

I love the car, it has a perfect balance of everything. Now that tuning is available I plan to add all the bolt ons to make it more aggressive while still being comfortable.

Forgot to say 3 years ago ny came back with these plates

That's the one nice thing about living in PA - no front plate required :) However, I bought my Accord in Skokie, IL outside of Chicago (shoutout to my boy Rick LOL - he loves every time I mention that ;)) and they require front plates in IL - so I went and got the Accord vanity plate which I happen to love now

Thanks again for all the nice compliments. The front plate law is really stupid. It's something I've always broken the law with. Lol

I'm so impatient, but I have to wait till April to do the mods, that's when it's back on the road, and get insurance back on. I'll add a few pics in meantime.

nice ride bro and nice collection of mods. we have the same taste in cars too, my first honda was a prelude then another prelude followed by a gsr integra and now my auto v6 accord coupe.

I thought about getting an acura rsx type s but decided to go with the more grown up car, the accord. no regrets it's been a good car so far.

can't wait to see the ride with all the mods installed.:thmsup:

Do you notice any difference with the addition of the torque damper? I really wanted to feel a difference to justify the purchase. I haven't noticed any major difference.

Nice car, BTW. :)

I got the NRG one that mounts to the rear motor mount and drivers side of the rear head. HUGE difference. Much more solid feel. Yeah, there is additional vibrations, but to me, the driving experience was waaaaay improved and worth the vibration at idle, which is the only time you feel it, when you are stopped.
