    Euro accord is 10cm shorter compared to Usdm, so i had to shorten the pipe for the nvidia n1 exhaust.

    That would be because what the rest of the world calls the "Honda Accord" is the "Acura TSX" in the U.S.. (*with styling changes)

    U.S. Honda Accord is a different car. (For our 'higher caliber' drivers)

    I had that happen to my old Accord the other week as well. Parked outside a furniture warehouse to help someone I know. I come out 10 mins later and the left rear door has been smashed in by some *******. God I hate people sometimes. No moral whatsoever.

    I'm sad to hear that. My car was damaged while it was standing outside the garage and the falling snow erased all tracks. Wish i had a security camera. Here is a better picture of the damage. The front bumper is hanging slightly downward.

    I have always wanted to buy a h22a engine from Japan, but now I'm leaning more toward buying a new car.

    When I get my new car I'm going to make sure to park as far away from other people as I possibly can. Not interested in having people smash their doors all over it.

    Delta: That's not bad at all, escaping only with a scraped bumper.... Had it worse with my Smart ForTwo.

    9 months after i bought it... drunk driver pulling into the parking lot by where i work. Not to mention only 8 days before my birthday...

    [​IMG]

    almost a year later, on Thanksgiving, also in the parking lot at work, different parking space, someone apparently didn't know how to park to well, and scraped some paint off the drivers side fender and fender flare. Didn't entirely have to worry about fixing it, since they're plastic body panels, so no chance of rust.

    And.... about a year after that.... tractor trailer driver backing into the lot, again, where i work, and again in a different parking spot, not only next to the sidewalk, but with a fire hydrant (that you can see in the picture), a telephone pole to the driver side rear, and that poles support wire going down behind the car.

    Soooooooo..... yea.... a scraped bumper is nothing. haha

    Aww, come now. The vette interior is par with 99% of cars out there.
    Just because the performance is exceptional, doesn't mean that the interior also has to be.


    Check out the s2000, IMO.

    were you talking about mine? It's a 3LT (e.g. optioned out nicely). It's not that bad of an interior. I traded in an Audi for the Vette and I certianly don't feel like I downgraded much at all in the interior department.

    Havn't washed mine for ages, or cleaned the insides, the dust is well thick in there now, had to much going on, will get around to it eventually i guess.

    just gotta do it once. Then just maintain it. I have black so it's a pain to keep clean but worth every penny every time I look at the car.

    The chrome wipers are the deal breaker for me. The wheels suit it, though.

    In other news, just won these on ebay. Wanted genuine Saab ones, but they're exactly the same - just with SAAB where it says VDO. And they cost 8x as much.

    Got the dash out at the moment to remove a dodgy aftermarket alarm system so hoping to fit them over the next few days :)

    The Vette interior doesn't work for me, either. Doesn't fit in with the looks of the car IMO - seems kinda uninspiring.

    I bet it's pretty epic though - with a car that fast you probably can't spend too much time soaking up the interior anyway...
