Hello, Names Brian.
New to reading here as of about a month ago, new member as of today.
Details:
  • 2015 Honda Accord EX-L Coupe
  • V6 A/T
  • San Marino Red.
  • 52k miles
  • $16,4k -OTD 18K
About Me:

I have owed the car for about 3 weeks now, and love everything about it. I previously owned a 2002 Accord coupe EX-L v6 in my early 20's, and I loved that car too, especially the NSX-esque tail lights, unfortunately that car met an early demise, and I moved on to an 09 mazda 3 with a 2.0 i4, after years of city driving only I started a new job with 40 miles commutes twice a day. That is when I started despising the mazda, I just did not enjoy driving it and felt helpless in passing situations. That is when I started looking for a new car, and after learning that honda stopped making the coupe v6 decide that I wanted some of the fun I had in my early 20's (now 29) back, and got the honda. So far I love driving it and coming from the mazda there is seemingly endless power. Well that's a little about my car history and how I came to own the 2015 accord. I'm glad to be learning from the forum, and have enjoyed reading everyone's posts so far.
Things done:
  • Custome background on the upper display
  • Replace dealer plate holders with "honda power" ones from college hill honda (learned of its existence here)
  • Replaced old/dirty IAF with a drop in K&N
  • Oil change / maintenance checks
Mod interest:
  • Ktuner
  • 3.7 IM & TB
  • CAI
  • Tein Flex Z
  • HFP lip kit and deck lid spoiler
The only hiccup I have had so far was a blowout on the rear passenger side (no damage) I did not check the age of the tires when purchased and found the two rear tires to be what I believe as original, michillen primacy's from late 2014. I moved the new 2018 primacy's to the rear and put Conti DWS06's on the front ($440 m&b from americas tire, warranty purchased in addition)
The tire failure, which was catastrophic, happened at or slightly above freeway speed during a pass, yes the car handled it very well and I was able to safely pull of the freeway. The failure was tread separation, most likely due to age and being stationary on the dealer lot.
