Took delivery of the car today, came off the truck last night, made the phone call said they had one left. Graphite Pearl, wasn't first choice, but after seeing it, I like it.

Love the car, was going to get the BMW, but for 15K less, I think I got a better deal. Sure the BMW is better, but 15K I am not sure.

Best part, without a word, dealer took $900 off MSRP.

I know need some nice 18" wheels and better sound.

Any suggestions.

I picked my 03 up last Thursday.
The car does need a better stereo system, but as of now there is now aftermarket stereo,thanks to ac display on the screen.
I will be putting the TL-s rims on my accord , hopefully I will a picture to post this week.

Just hope you know what your getting into.


I dont think I will ever buy a first year production car.

Theres always improvements going to be made next year and bugs will be tweaked out while yours would probably still have them.

Like the RSX about a month after they were out they started doing recalls on the ECU. Wasnt that right? Or was it some other part?

I bought the CL first year, TL first year, and have never had a problem. Sure there are some upgrades, but it is fun to be the first to have a car. I never keep a car more then 2 years.

I made the same promise myself, but I feel short. I had my '00 accord for 30 months with 29k miles when I traded it for the '03 v6 sedan

the 03 accord sedan

as I was driving home last nite, I saw the new accord. It wasn't very impressive. Not sure if it came with HID lights, but the lights on that car were very blue, like the 8000k bulbs... Maybe he had it retrofitted, but the lights were way too blue, it'll catch the cop's attention for sure.

not possible, yet, especially in the way that the panels were designed, i hear you would have to take apart most of the front interior just to get to behind those panels

The 03 accord comes with halogen lights...is it still the 9006/9005 setup? If so, then a HID retro may have been done, but thats really quick considering when it was released...
