Just got a 2001 Honda Accord V6 sedan as my 2nd car.

Got a few questions...

1. The headlights are very hazy... can somebody point me to a DIY on how to clean them up?

2. What aftermarket white headlight bulbs do you guys recommend? No, I cant afford PIAA. :)

3. What aftermarket short ram do you guys recommend? Also, go with the K&N filter or something else?

4. I was thinking of doing a full fluid flush, including tranny fluid. Anything to avoid here? Any recommendations?

Thanks!

2) I would go with HID's especially after cleaning the headlights it would look so much brighter
4) If I were you this would be a must to begin with!

2. HID.. you can get a pair with ballasts for $60ish.. i recommend not going over 6500K.. anything else is gonna get you looked at by the cops and will be kinda a blue tint and wont help you see... the 6500k are more of a white and will light up the road..
3. There will be alot of debate on this... but all the piping for aem,K&N, Bombz racing..ect all have the same bends and types of metal.. what your paying for is a name and a stamp that makes it legal in all states.. if you live anywhere except California..go for a cheap-o off ebay and put a K&N filter on it.. you will save hundreds of dollars... just my 2 cents.. so you can save 2 cents..:D.. if you live in cali..your screwed.. shell out the big bucks..

4. I would deff do a fluid flush on everything, not only because its just a good idea but then you know what fluid, how much fluid, and what the fluids look like in the car (incase its old, brown, or never has been done before)

And when he says flush he doesn't actually mean flush, at least I hope he doesn't. Drain all fluids and replace them. If the tranny fluid is not red/pink, then do a drain and fillx3, driving a few hundred miles between fills. DO NOT FLUSH using flushing machines or "cleaners" on any fluids.
